Finian's Journey

Last Thursday I embarked on a journey to find some new peaks to highlight in the Surrey Winterfest. I've been getting pretty fed up with the blog as of late. As I keep stressing, the gang war is so materialistic and messed up. It's all about selfishness and greed. The dirty politicians tied to it are no better either.

In the Surrey Winterfest, I said I wanted to highlight Janice Shore's brutal murder and add to it a kaleidoscope of other things that you can't find in a crack pipe just to reassure everyone there is good and beauty in the world if we just know where to look for it. Thursday morning as I headed east on the freeway, the sunrise behind Mount Baker was mesmerizing.

Then when that magic moment happened and the sun popped up over the horizon, that same sunrise was blinding. Coming into Kelowna inversion was in effect and you could see the low hanging clouds blanket the city.

Driving into Vernon was total fog. So I headed up Silverstar and enjoyed the sunny day above the low hanging clouds. It was awesome.

I do have some new sights and some new peaks to share which will indeed be the kaleidoscope's climax for the Surrey Winterfest. It's been a time of self reflection for me. I'm far from perfect and I'm no better than anyone else. I just have a passion against crack and crystal meth because I have seen it destroy lives. Janice Shore's brutal murder was revolting. Giving the homeless free drugs then beating the life out of them for payment is predatory. Those are the rats not the ones reporting them to the police. Let's be clear about that.

The reason I throw other stuff in is because there is so much more to life then that toxic wasteland. So much more. I'll never be rich but I'll never sling crack and I'll never live off the avails pimping a crack ho. I was happy with the Kelowna Summer Jam. I was ready to hang up the blog and say mission accomplished. Then I thought, let's pull a Jay z and do one last encore. Let's focus on the predatory drug dealers selling crack outside the Front Room in Surrey. Only with Bill Fordy and Dianne Watts at the helm those concerns are falling on deaf ears. It's rather pointless as long as they are in charge. So yes, it's time for a changing of the guard in a big way. Just ask the residents and businesses of Newton.

Politics is dirty. Nobody likes politics. Yet without politicians liberty is lost both physically and financially. We need to talk about these things because that is the first step in changing things and righting the wrongs than need to be corrected. So here it is. One last time. Put a cap in my ass now and you'll just get the big f you because it just won't matter. I'll have said what I had to say and I'll have shown you a better way.

My father used to say, Look to the rainbow, follow the fellow who follows a dream. T'was an elegant legacy to bequeath a child so it was. Indeed, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil because I know that life does not end at death. I know that even the darkest day will have a new dawn. I know that behind the darkest clouds the sun is still shining. You just need to step out of the box to see it. They that be with us are more than they that be with them.

Thy mind oh man if thou wilt lead a soul unto salvation must stretch as high as the utmost heaven and search into and contemplate the lowest considerations of the darkest abyss. He must commune with God. The one who has graven us on the palms of his hands. I've shown you the dark abyss. Now it's time to show you the utmost heaven for the climax of the Surrey Winterfest. As I consider the dark abyss outside the Front Room and the ones that murdered Janice Shore, it makes me tired and so much more aware. All I want to do is be more like me and be less like you.


  1. "Politics is dirty. Nobody likes politics. Yet without politicians liberty is lost both physically and financially."

    Oh, we can do without politicians quite well. It's public servants that we need. They would actually accomplish what the former promise but never deliver on, or deliver only partially while stealing everything they can get their hands on and entrenching their position.

    Public servants don't need a car and a driver because they are someone "important". They don't need a bigger office, or to redecorate the one they have at a cost of thousands of dollars to people who pay them to do the citizen's business. And they don't need a "career in public service" which serves them and not the body public. They don't need "fact finding" junkets at taxpayer expense.

    This is a difficult problem, multi-faceted, but the single easiest and most effective measure that could be taken to change all that is wrong with the present picture is a very simple one.

    TERM LIMITS. One term. No "re-election", where thousands of tax dollars can be spent for the purpose of continuing in office. Remove the ability of someone elected to public office to entrench themselves. You will remove almost all of the attraction for all of the wrong kind of people to seek it, because there will be no power or money there for those who seek only power and money.

    All this said, the onus is on the public to demand this, and enforce the demand with action against those who desire the situation to remain exactly as it is. You get the government that you are willing to tolerate. Politicians want to be re-elected. If the public were to adopt a policy of never voting to re-elect ANYONE, we might actually get a group in office who would be willing to legislate the professional politician/leech out of existence by passing a law that forbids running for re-election once in office.

  2. K, I'm a prominent figure west of Edmonton. If you could shoot me an e addy I have tons of info I'd be eager to share.

    1. Add you on what linkedin? I still have to sign up for that. I'm snowshoeing in the mountains right now. E-mail works.

    2. OK I'm on linkedin now. Is yours the profile that says End times warrior or the one that says Boss of Self?

  3. Hi Agent K,
    An interesting column.
    I can see, from this one as well as previous posts, why you might be getting tired and frustrated.
    However, the blog has, does and continuous to provide a useful purpose. It would be a shame if you gave it up. This is all easy to say as I am not the one writing hundreds and hundreds of articles per year and maintaining the web-site.
    Do what you need to do for yourself and for your family. I thank you for your efforts of getting the word out. You are one of the few "centralized" depositories for what is going on and one that clearly indicates right from wrong.
    As I have mentioned before, I feel that it is our justice system that is so screwed is not sure, swift or consistent anymore.
    I am thinking that many play the game of making the system work for a conviction even though they already know that they did the crime. In those cases I think that someone pleading innocent but who is found guilty gets an extra 3 to 5 years added on to their sentence for wasting tax-payers dollars.
    Politicians play the game and many are nervous of taking public stands. hard to believe as what did/do we elect them for? Some of them and some judges are becoming corrupted so I can see, at times, that you must feel that you are beating your head against the wall.
    While I don't agree with everything that you have written nor appreciate your take on every topic, I do really think that you have provided and do provide a valuable service.l learned a lot. So thank you.
    If you, indeed, decide that this blog does need a successor, I wish you well in your future endeavours.
    Best of luck.
    My 2 cents.
