WARNING

Officials targeted over mussel risk
Vernon Morning Star - by Richard Rolke - Apr 2, 2014

Okanagan residents are being rallied to fight invaders.

The Okanagan Basin Water Board decided Tuesday to consider ways of allowing residents to express concerns about the risk of zebra and quagga mussels to federal and provincial officials.

“Our MLAs need countless correspondence from constituents,” said director Toby Pike at a meeting in Coldstream.

“This is a nerve issue for people in the valley. They really don’t want this to happen.”

The mussels are indigenous to Europe and since arriving in North America, they have spread across the continent, clogging water intake pipes and boat motors. They also deplete food sources for fish, produce toxins that contaminate drinking water and razor-sharp shells spread across beaches.

Also on Tuesday, the OBWB board agreed to write a letter once again reiterating the need for the federal and provincial governments to take action on the mussels, particularly given that a boat infested with mussels was found at the Osoyoos border crossing March 12.

“I’m quite disgusted with how the province and the feds are taking this so lightly,” said director Allan Patton.

OBWB has been urging the federal government to permit border guards to inspect boats and prohibit entry of any contaminated vessels. It also wants the provincial government to create an inspection program.

“We have to continue to hammer away at the province to do something and the feds to implement regulations,” said Doug Findlater, OBWB chairperson.

When contacted, Okanagan MPs have indicated that federal regulations are pending.

“They’re very vague on that end of things,” said Anna Warwick Sears, OBWB executive director.

The other concern is that when the mussel-infested boat was stopped in Osoyoos, the B.C. Ministry of Environment had to find a commercial company for decontamination.

“They’re just not prepared,” said Warwick Sears of the ministry.

“There are very few resources coming down to the local level.”

Director Juliette Cunningham says senior officials need to act as the possibility grows that mussels will arrive in the Okanagan.

“I have people coming up to me and they’re freaking out about it,” she said.

Okanagan jurisdictions are also being urged to speak out.

“We need to get every municipality to do it (write letters). That may have some teeth,” said director Gerry Zimmermann.

=======================

This no-brainer scares me that people have to send in letters to encourage the government to do what is right.  Is the government that stupid that they need to have people telling the government to do what is right?  People don't have time to write thousands of letters, and the government doesn't have time to read them all, so what is the point of writing letters?  The government doesn't listen anyway.  It is the governments job to do what is right!!!  If the government can't do their job without a thousand letters, maybe its time we disband government!!!  I don't know about you, but every day there is something that pisses me right the "F" off!  Sometimes several times per day!!!  If the OBWB can't persuade the government, who can?  The government will do whatever it wants to do no matter what people say, and even if you do send in letters.  The system is obviously not working.  Why don't we change the system so that it does work.  If we don't change the system, nothing is going to change, and everyone will have to spend their life writing letters and spend thousands of dollars cleaning up Okanagan Lake.  This mussel problem was brought up a long time ago by the OBWB and its still an issue!!!!!!  For all the effort protestors have to put in to encourage change, all the protestors could use that effort to become their own government and change the system so that it works the way it should.  Tell me, do you like Harper and Clark, cause I sure don't.  Harpers election fraud scandal, should have been your first clue!!!  How many letters after the first one, do the OBWB need to write?  The OBWB have already written a letter, but the government needs more letters from them????  Lets work on changing the way the system works so you can stop writing letters for every dam thing that comes along.  How stupid does our government have to be for you to do something about it?  Do you really want to live the rest of your life this way, writing letters or forever holding your peace?

Honestly, can you believe this?  Well I for one can't stand this anymore!!!  The entire system needs to change!!!

If you do write a letter, make sure you emphasize how ignorant government is and that you shouldn't have to write a letter about the mussel problem.

Kokanee fishing re-opens on Okanagan Lake
By Judie Steeves - Kelowna Capital News - April 12, 2012

A kokanee fishery in Okanagan Lake has re-opened permanently this month, after a closure in 1995 due to a crash in populations.

The return to an open, year-round fishery for the land-locked sockeye salmon will mean anglers may catch five fish per day.

Kokanee numbers declined dramatically in the late 1990s, when fewer than three per cent of the number of spawning fish counted in the 1970s were found.

Fisheries stock assessment biologist Paul Askey of the natural resource operations ministry, said the reasons for the decline were complex and varied, but included disease issues, poor water management, a decline in lake nutrients, competition with an introduced shrimp and degradation of spawning habitat.

In recent years, numbers have improved and seasonal openings for kokanee angling have been added.

A 20-year action plan to investigate and try and solve some of the problems was instituted a dozen or so years ago. Since then, water management improvements have reduced mortality, as well as maintenance of spawning habitat and a mysis shrimp fishery has been instituted to reduce their numbers.

While abundance overall is similar now to that of the early 1990s, Askey noted that the recovery favours shore spawning stock over stream spawners.

Shore spawners tend to be smaller than stream spawning kokanee, so he warns anglers to expect to catch large numbers of the smaller kokanee in Okanagan Lake.

It would be irresponsible for anglers to release small kokanee and keep only the big ones because survival of released kokanee is much lower than other species of fish.

“They all taste good, so if you’re kokanee fishing, please just take them as they come and encourage others to do the same,” he said.

Dish Network L.L.C. v. Rex, 2011 BCSC 1105 – 2011/08/15
Supreme Court

I. INTRODUCTION

[1] The Court: The applicant, Richard Rex, seeks an order for advance costs in order to fund a challenge he has brought pursuant to the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, R.S.C. 1985, App. II, No. 44, Schedule B. Mr. Rex seeks to strike down certain provisions of the Radiocommunication Act, R.S.C. 1985, c. R-2 which he says effectively prohibit Canadian consumers from purchasing encrypted television broadcast signals from foreign broadcasters.

[2] The present litigation arises from Mr. Rex’s “grey market” satellite businesses which involve the sale to Canadian residents of subscriptions to encrypted satellite television signals provided by two companies based in the United States, Dish Network L.L.C. (“Dish”) and DIRECTV, Inc. (“DIRECTV”). Mr. Rex has carried on business under the names of Can-Am Satellites (“Can-Am”), www.smalldish.com, and Digital Valley Entertainment.

[3] Canadian residents have purchased decoding boxes and ancillary equipment from Mr. Rex’s businesses and provided fictitious addresses in the United States to Dish and DIRECTV in order to access encrypted satellite television signals. The grey market is unlike the “black market”, where television programming is pirated. In the grey market, Canadian residents pay for their subscriptions.

[4] Dish is incorporated in both Colorado and Texas. Its principal place of business is in Englewood, Colorado. Dish is the plaintiff in VA S094747.

[5] DIRECTV is incorporated in California, and maintains its principal place of business in El Segundo. DIRECTV is the plaintiff in VA S084517.

[6] Neither Dish nor DIRECTV are registered under any Canadian or provincial statute to carry on business in any province in Canada.

[7] Bell ExpressVu Limited Partnership is a limited partnership constituted under the Limited Partnership Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. L-16. Bell ExpressVu, now known as “Bell TV” (“Bell”), is the general partner of the limited partnership. It maintains its main operational office in Toronto. Bell is the plaintiff in VA S085635.

[8] The Attorney General for Canada (“Canada”) is an intervenor on Mr. Rex’s Charter challenge and on this application.

[9] Dish, DIRECTV, and Bell have brought separate proceedings seeking, inter alia, injunctive relief and both statutory and common law damages against Mr. Rex and others for facilitating access to encrypted television broadcast signals from the United States contrary to the Radiocommunication Act. I have been appointed the case management judge for each of those proceedings. The quantum of damages has yet to be specified.

[10] Mr. Rex’s application for advance costs is brought in all three actions.

[11] Mr. Rex argues that the expressive freedom of nearly a million Canadians has been infringed by the Radiocommunication Act. In his submission, a prima facie case of a Charter breach has been established.

[12] The position advanced by Mr. Rex on the Charter challenge and on this application is that certain provisions of the Radiocommunication Act contravene s. 2(b) of the Charter, which guarantees freedom of expression to all Canadians, because they prohibit access by Canadian residents to expression from foreign broadcasters who transmit satellite television programming through encrypted broadcast signals.

[13] According to Mr. Rex, the issue in this case is whether that breach can be justified under s. 1 of the Charter, applying the analysis of the Supreme Court of Canada in R. v. Oakes, [1986] 1 S.C.R. 103 and Alberta v. Hutterain Brethern of Wilson Colony, 2009 SCC 37. Section 1 provides:

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees the rights and freedoms set out in it subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society.

Angler catches big rainbow trout out of Okanagan Lake
Kelowna Capital News - By Barry Gerding - April 12, 2011


Local angler Jim Sutherland holds up his latest prize catch, a 25.5 lb.
rainbow trout caught last Friday afternoon in Okanagan Lake.  Barry Gerding

Kelowna angler Jim Sutherland says he wants to catch the big fish whenever he goes fishing.

Last Friday, Sutherland was able to live up to those expectations, reeling in a 25.5 lb. rainbow trout from Okanagan Lake.

Sutherland says it's the third largest rainbow ever caught in the lake that was weighed on a government-certified scale.

"It had been out of the water for two hours when it was weighed, so the actual weight when I caught it was probably closer to 27 pounds," said Sutherland.

Sutherland said he made his catch fishing in the Gellatly Bay area, using a buck tail lure.

Since he posted news of his catch online, Sutherland said he has been generating responses from as far away as England.

"It's the best fish by far that I've caught in Okanagan Lake," Sutherland said.

Telus warns of email phishing scam
CBC News - Mar 27, 2011

Telus is warning customers to beware of a sophisticated email phishing scam.

Telus is warning B.C. and Alberta residents to be on the lookout for a new email scam designed to get at your personal information.

Telus spokesman Shawn Hall said there has been a huge surge in emails from scammers purporting to be from Telus, trying to trick customers out of secure information and their Telus account login details.

"What really concerns us about this one is we've really seen a dramatic increase in its volume," he said.

The emails are typical of phishing scams, where criminals send emails that appear to be from a trusted source in order to trick people into releasing personal information, including online banking names and passwords.

"In one case, they're asking for you to upgrade to a new security system, in another case to verify your account," he said.

"If you return that information, they're going to cull it and use it probably for identity theft purposes. If you come across this type of information, simply delete it."

Hall said the emails are fraudulent and are not from Telus. He said the company has intercepted or responded to hundreds of these email scams in the last week.

He said it appears to be the work of a sophisticated offshore operation.

"The common thread in every account is they're asking you to return with personal information," he said.

"In this particular case, we have been blocking the emails the scam is coming from. They are moving, though, and sending the scam from new email addresses."

Scams like this are common, Hall said, and fraudsters regularly rotate between different regions of the world, change the names of legitimate and well-known companies they claim to represent and alter details in an effort to appear legitimate.

Hall advised consumers to be cautious any time they receive a phone call or email asking for personal information. A key indication the email or phone call is fraudulent, he said, is requests for personal information the legitimate company would already have and should not need to request, such as user name or account details.

Government is like business, if you don't support them, they don't stick around long.

CRTC was requesting comments about Internet Providers charging customers based on their usage.

CRTC to hold public hearing on wholesale Internet access services OTTAWA-GATINEAU, March 11, 2011 —In response to numerous requests, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) today clarified the form and scope of its proceeding to review wholesale residential high-speed Internet access services, which was launched on February 8, 2011.

Canadians will have an opportunity to share their views at a public hearing starting on July 11th 2011 in Gatineau, Que. The CRTC will also hold an online consultation. Details of both the hearing and consultation will be announced shortly.

Although the scope of the proceeding will not be limited to reviewing usage-based billing proposals, the CRTC intends to focus on issues such as:

- usage-based charges, whether aggregated between the Small Internet service providers (Small ISPs) or applied to each Small ISP
- usage-based charges driven by peak traffic periods, and
- an examination of network capacity and congestion.

The CRTC will not be expanding the scope, as requested by several parties, to include the billing practices for retail Internet services. There is no evidence that market forces are not working properly in this unregulated market.

Finally, the CRTC will not review, as was also requested by several parties, the overall regulatory framework for wholesale high-speed Internet access services. The overall framework was not part of the decision that is being reviewed, and it would not be appropriate to initiate such a wide-ranging review within the current proceeding.

Letter Ottawa, 11 March 2011

DISTRIBUTION

Dear Madam or Sir:

Re: Review of billing practices for wholesale residential high-speed access services, Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2011-77, 8 February 2011 (Notice 2011-77) – Requests to modify the scope and terms of the proceeding

Shortly after the issuance of Notice 2011-77, the Commission received requests to modify the scope and terms of this proceeding. The Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC), on its own behalf and as counsel to the Consumers’ Association of Canada (CAC) (collectively, PIAC/CAC), submitted such a request on 10 February 2011 and the Canadian Network Operators Consortium (CNOC) submitted one on 11 February 2011.

In a letter dated 15 February 2011, Commission staff sought comments from various parties on these requests to modify the scope and terms of the proceeding.

Following the issuance of that letter, the Commission received comments from the following parties: Bell Aliant Regional Communications, Limited Partnership and Bell Canada; BC Broadband Association; the Canadian Association of Internet Providers (CAIP); Cogeco Cable Inc., EastLink Cable Inc., Quebecor Media Inc. on behalf of its affiliate Videotron G.P., Rogers Communications Partnership, and Shaw Communications Inc. (collectively, the cable carriers); Mark Rubenstein; MTS Allstream Inc. (MTS Allstream); Netflix Inc.; the Samuelson‐Glushko Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic; Saskatchewan Telecommunications; TELUS Communications Company; l’Union des consommateurs; and Vaxination informatique.

This letter sets out the Commission’s determinations regarding these requests.

Principles

In Notice 2011-77, the Commission set out an approach to review billing practices regarding mandated wholesale residential high-speed access services based on the following two principles:

  • a.  as a general rule, ordinary consumers served by small Internet service providers (Small ISPs) should not have to fund the bandwidth used by the heaviest retail Internet service consumers; and

  • b.  it is in the best interest of consumers that Small ISPs, which offer competitive alternatives to the incumbent carriers, should continue to do so

Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC) and Consumers’ Association of Canada (CAC) requested that principle (a) noted above should be removed from Notice 2011-77. Canadian Association of Internet Providers (CAIP) requested that the Commission remove both principles noted above from Notice 2011-77. Both parties indicated that these principles prejudge a rate structure for billing practices regarding mandated wholesale residential high-speed access services and that they should be replaced with broader questions in order to determine the proper principles applicable to mandated wholesale services.

The Commission considers that the two principles stated above and in Notice 2011-77 are intended to create a fair wholesale regime that (1) protects the interests of consumers and Small ISPs, and (2) does not create an unintended advantage for any particular service provider or user. In addition, the principles stated above do not prejudge in any way the outcome of this proceeding. In reviewing the billing practices for mandated wholesale residential high-speed access services in this proceeding, the Commission is inviting comments on proposals for billing practices that implement these two principles, and is not limited to examining only usage-based billing (UBB).

For example, the scope of the proceeding does not preclude proposals for billing practices that incorporate usage-based charges aggregated on a per-ISP basis or that are driven by peak period traffic, as indicated by some parties in their comments. The scope of the proceeding also does not preclude comments on the effectiveness of any billing practice as an Internet traffic management practice.

In light of the above, the Commission denies PIAC/CAC’s and CAIP’s requests.


Expansion of proceeding

PIAC/CAC also requested that the Commission expand the scope of the proceeding to allow parties to comment on the use of UBB in the retail Internet market.

The Commission notes that it has forborne from the regulation of retail Internet services on the basis that there is sufficient competition in the retail market. The Commission also notes that no parties provided evidence to justify a re-examination of this forbearance directive. Accordingly, the Commission denies PIAC/CAC’s request for expansion of the scope of the proceeding to allow comments regarding the use of UBB in the retail Internet market.

CNOC submitted that the current regulatory framework for wholesale high-speed access services is outdated and needs to be replaced. CNOC argued that the current framework is based on the assumption that these services are only used by competitors to deliver Internet services to their end-users and that competitors are mere resellers of incumbent retail Internet access services. CNOC requested that the Commission expand the scope of the proceeding to include a review of the regulatory framework for wholesale high-speed access services.

The Commission notes that the current proceeding deals with the narrow issue of billing practices for mandated wholesale residential high-speed access services. The Commission also notes that many of the issues raised by CNOC regarding wholesale high-speed access services were addressed in a recent Commission decision. The Commission considers that it would not be appropriate to include in the current proceeding a broad review of the regulatory framework for wholesale high-speed access services, as suggested by CNOC. Accordingly, the Commission denies CNOC’s request to modify the scope of the Notice 2011-77 proceeding.

MTS Allstream requested that the Notice 2011-77 proceeding be revised to include additional questions regarding such issues as network congestion and capacity.

The Commission considers that the above noted issues raised by MTS Allstream can be addressed in the context of this proceeding.

Procedural matters

Several parties requested that the procedure set out in Notice 2011-77 be modified to include an interrogatory process. Several parties also requested clarification on whether this proceeding would include an oral hearing and an online consultation.

The Commission will issue an amendment to Notice 2011-77 shortly to revise the procedure to include an interrogatory process, an oral hearing, and an online consultation. The oral public hearing will begin on 11 July 2011. Details will be provided in the amendment to Notice 2011-77.

ANOTHER UPDATE

This is an email from Minister of Industry Tony Clement about Internet Usage based billing we received March 25, 2011.

Dear Sir or Madam:

Thank you for expressing your concerns regarding usage-based billing (UBB) for Internet services. It is essential that I hear the views of Canadians on the issues that matter. Prime Minister Harper and I have been clear that we cannot support imposing a UBB business model on wholesale Internet service providers.

Our government recognizes that the Internet and digital technologies are an increasingly important part of everyday life including driving innovation, commerce and social interaction. As the government develops Canadas first comprehensive Digital Economy Strategy, we need to look carefully at how issues like UBB affect the big picture. We will be guided by our long-standing policies of encouraging competition and investment, increasing consumer choice, minimizing regulation and allowing market forces to prevail.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has chosen to examine these concerns that the government shares with a large number of Canadians. Details of the CRTC consultation are available at
www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/com100/2011/r110208.htm.

When the CRTC reaches a final decision following its consultations, the government will carefully assess the CRTC position to ensure that it is in line with the best interests of Canadian consumers and encourages competition among internet service providers. I will be recommending that any decision counter to these foundational principles be reversed.

You can find the latest news on the governments Digital Economy Strategy and related issues at www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/ic1.nsf/eng/h_00008.html.

Once again, thank you for writing. I trust that this information is
helpful.

Yours sincerely,
Tony Clement

Water board says public left out
Kelowna Capital News - By Judie Steeves - February 03, 2011

The province’s process for bringing in new legislation to replace the century-old water act is flawed, according to the Okanagan Basin Water Board.

Instead of calling for feedback once a draft of the legislation is available to comment on, the province’s plan is to go directly from public feedback to drafting legislation, then to taking it to the legislature for approval. Currently, the process is at the Water Sustainability Act policy proposal stage, having already gone through a public input process that resulted in draft options which aren’t specific. The next four steps to introduction of legislation are all at the government level, with no public feedback stage.

OBWB director Graeme James said the City of Kelowna believed there would be time for its input on the draft legislation, and director James Baker agreed, saying they need details on which to comment, rather than just vague policy directions.

Director Toby Pike recalled that the Parliamentary Secretary for Water Stewardship to the Minister of Environment, John Slater, who also used to head up the OBWB, committed to make time for feedback after the legislation was drafted. For instance, at this point, there’s no definition of what’s meant by such terms as “conservation flows,” noted Pike.

Director Bernie Bauer suggested the board send a letter expressing strong support for the policy proposal, but expressing concern about the details of the actual legislation. The letter will request that a period for public feedback on the draft legislation be allowed before it goes to the legislature for approval.

The province is calling for public feedback now on its blog on proposals for the new act at

Telus as overpriced as any other in Canada
As the above poster noted, Canadians are overcharged for their highspeed internet services, and, unlike many other countries, most Canadians have a cap on the amount they can download. Canada also has slower speeds than many other countries as well. CBC did a story on this, you can read it here »www.cbc.ca/technology/story/2008···and.html
I'm not sure if this is still the case but South Korea and many other Asian countries had the lowest highspeed internet prices and I think most, if not all, did not have download caps. Ultimately it's just all about money. Canada has maybe 1 or 2 service providers in a given area, and smaller providers, if any, are basically only resellers as they rely on access to lines of the bigger providers. Basically, internet service is monopolized and thus providers charge whatever they want, under whatever conditions they want (ie. download and speed limits, lack of customer service, etc). Not that the public actually cares. This is a country of people that quitely still paid the higher exchange rate price even when the Canadian dollar was on par with, or higher than, the US dollar, and, when asked if it bothered them, said "no, what can you do?"

Are you religious?

Think about it, not everyone believes in the same belief (religion), and there are so many religions I can't count them all. And you know how people like to be forced into a religion they don't believe in. Well I think some people may believe they are atheist, but they don't act like it. Everyone believes in the biggest religion of them all.... government. There are more people that believe in government than any other religion. People are more than willing to hand over a portion of each pay cheque to their government (god). People believe if there was no government (god) that they would go to hell. Well I don't know about you, but I don't think I would go to hell. I truly believe I am not religious and I don't believe in being governed. So why is this biggest religion (government) being shoved down my throat? If I don't want to belong to this biggest religion (government) I will go straight to hell (jail).  Anyone have a solution?

Pass this around if you believe like I do.

The CTF recommends any organization receiving tax dollars be subject to the FOIPP Act with regard to how those dollars are spent.

D. Babcock said, "As a taxpayer it is our money and we have right and an interest to know what our elected representatives did with our money.  They are working for us not the other way around!

.pdf icon C.M. Belanger
C.M. Belanger said, "The current government has made freedom of information impossible for real people! Charging huge amounts and imposing their ridiculously long wait time (an added and deliberate obstacle). When the request finally is committed the information is mostly BLACKED OUT!"

.pdf icon D. Schreck
D. Schreck said, "Changes to the Act are important, but no changes can replace the need for a commitment throughout government to an attitude that the public has a right to know what is going on in government."

B. Skakun said, "This Privacy Act is in my opinion designed to protect governments at all levels putting the onus on the applicant to fight government for information that is" Clearly in the Public Interest"

The Internet As You Know It Is Slated for Death by 2012

According to information readily accessible on the internet, the effort is underway to charge per site fees on most internet sites. The plan will convert the internet into a cable-like system in which customers will sign up and pay for access to specific web sites and then pay al a carte to visit any sites beyond the package they have bought. It's modeled on the manner in which cable TV subscribers buy prepackaged service, leaving them open to purchase extra services on a per view basis. Many sites not popular enough to be bundled would disappear. Costs for the average internet user would soar.

FCC regulations have already allowed the phone and cable giants to gain greater control over broadband and eliminate longstanding regularoty safeguards. Companies providing internet access are not required to operate in a nondiscriminatory manner. It has been governmental regulation of phone lines that has helped make the internet the open, accessible and vibrant medium it is today. But now the effort is underway to privatize these networks and the government is slowly allowing this to happen.

http://www.naturalnews.com/023858_internet_the_power.html

------------------------------

"The commissioners were especially outraged by Comcast's lies and deception. When it first got caught blocking the Internet, the cable giant "misleadingly disclaimed any responsibility for its customers' problems," according to the FCC order, followed by "at best misdirection and obfuscation." Contrary to the spin of Comcast's lawyers, the FCC can protect the rights of Internet users, and promote openness, free speech and competition on the Web.

One of British Columbia's worst fires, the Salmon Arm fire occurred in 1998. It damaged over 6,000 hectares, caused the evacuation of approximately 7,000 people, destroyed 40 buildings, and cost over $10 million to extinguish.

On June 13, 1886, fire destroyed most of Vancouver, which had only been incorporated three months earlier. A clearing fire blazed out of control and in one hour only two of the 400 original buildings were left standing. Due to the fire it was decided that replacement construction should be of brick stone or cast iron.

Mr. Premier -

I just wanted to express my thanks to you for your introduction of the HST for British Columbians.

Until yesterday I actually thought I would have some small stipend left in my budget to spend on minor things such as food and heat and light and lodging. But thankfully you have now taken that difficult decision of where I should now spend that money.

Your government has been so good at reducing the decision options for B.C. Citizens, particularly Old Age Pensioners ever since you took office.

You started off by introducing the Unfair Pharmacare Program, you of course called it Fair Pharmacare, and I guess as it left us with less money in our pockets and more in yours, I can see your point.

Then you introduced increased fees for hunting and fishing licences and park use fees. Of course you did promise that these monies would all go back into the resource. You lied of course. But again thanks to you we now had less money to worry about.

I won't go into the Olympics because it certainly makes sense to me that my money is far better spent by you on million dollar parties and brownnosing the hoi faloy by you and your compatriots in crime rather than my using that money for silly things like keeping warm and or eating. But hey, you have my best interests at heart I know.

Now you have taken or are taking some $800 million from B.C. Hydro to pay for the big party, and so naturally and rationally B.C. Hydro, which needed the $800 million to upgrade and maintain our decaying and crumbling power facilities to ensure we have heat and light in the future, why they just increased our electrical rates by 9%, a very tricky back door tax on your part, sneaky aren't you!

But hey, I understand that keeping you in the style to which you and your developer friends have become accustomed to is of paramount importance.

Then of course you are taking another almost $800 million from ICBC which over time will result in increased insurance fees, another back door tax.

But hey on this one you really solved our problem because with your new tax and the ongoing smoke and mirrors, "Carbon Tax" you are ensuring we cannot afford to drive our cars so we don't have to worry about car insurance do we? Clever guy.

Oh. by the way, what have you been doing with the millions you have raked in on the Carbon Tax? Just a thought, maybe people would like to know where the money goes other than parties and to massively overpaid minions you keep hiring in our health and education systems.

And now of course you have solved all our money problems with the grand old HST. I never would have thought of it, no money, no problems.

I am looking into having the Federal Government just sending my pension cheque directly to your account and thereby saving us all the middle men and accounting issues.

Really appreciate all you have done and are doing to keep us from having to wonder what we will do with all our money in the future.

I will be however, working with Bill Vander Zalm as hard as I can just to show my full appreciation for your efforts.

Mad

Water Systems were not designed to make people homeless!

 

It use to be that a person on assistance was eligible for free tooth extractions, but not anymore.  It could cost between $38 - $100 or maybe even more.

If the homeless need low cost dental, there is a 7 month wait at Kelowna's Gospel Mission which is the only low cost dental clinic in the Kelowna / Vernon BC area, plus Kelowna's Gospel Mission is not taking new referrals.

And if the homeless needed dental care between Christmas and New Years and they didn't have the $200 because it is during the holidays, they were out of luck and had to live with the puss seeping from their gums and being poisoned.

That is just how well paying a government works.  You get nothing in return but pain!

Ministry pays 72% on dental work for kids and the disabled.  Warning though, these kids and the disabled may be charged more if the dentist charges more than the fee as recommended in the non-mandatory BC Dental Associations fee guide that is not published online, but may be located at a large municipal library.

The ministry's fee schedule for dental services for eligible people on income and disability assistance and children served through the BC Healthy Kids Program is 72 per cent of the BC Dental Association's 2007 fee guide.
