Canada Pension Plan still investing in Communist China

CNBC is reporting that "Canada's vast pension fund is sticking with China even as political tensions mount." AYFKM? OUR pension funds are invested in a Communist country that murders and tortures political prisoners? That needs to change. People talk about ethical investments. Right now Communist China is an unethical investment.

Amnesty International has called upon China to release the numbers of people they execute ever yar. Right now the number of people they kill is a state secret. Amnesty International claims that the Chinese authorities executed thousands of people in 2009, more than the rest of the world combined. These aren't people convicted of drug dealing or murder. These are political prisoners executed to order for organ harvesting.

We need to look at the torture that includes human rights lawyers in China.

Canada Pension investing in China knowing that is like investing in Adolf Hitler during the Holocaust. We need to change that investment of public funds.

Laila Yuile calls for a corruption inquiry in BC

Recenlty Laila Yuile made a blog post that went viral entitled The ‘enemy’ IS corruption. Period. As we know, Laila was critical of the corruption in the Christy Clark government that made the New York Times. She was a vocal opponent of the Site C Dam and obviously felt betrayed when the BC NDP decided to proceed with it after they took office.

After doing some soul searching Laila cautioned us about being blindly obedient to any party and warned us of a dark undertow within the BC NDP that was reminiscent of the Christy Clark era. She didn't name Jinny Sims, I did. That was me. Laila has more class than that. I don't.

She did name Rich Coleman and we are in total agreement on that. Laila's latest breakthrough states "The ‘enemy’ is not limited to a political party…the ‘enemy’ of the people is corruption. Period. And that ‘enemy’ did not disappear just because the Liberals are in opposition. Why? Because corruption doesn’t begin or end with a political party." Very true.

Laila goes on to revela that "For every fall guy who takes a rap, there are an endless supply to take his place. This is a lucrative underground industry. And oddly enough in the midst of all these casino money laundering stories, the province expanded gaming with the BCLC approval of a new casino in Ladner…go figure, it’s another Gateway operation."

Gateway casino? GATEWAY CASINO?!!! A-Y-F-K-M?! They are as dirty as it gets. Dianne Watts accepted a $24,500 campaign contribution from Gateway casinos to push the South Surrey mega casino on rural land scam. When I pointed out that Gateway casino was a bad investment because they mysteriously "lost" $1.5 billion in a debt restructure scam, Dianne Watts interrupted me and said that wasn't true when she knew it was. November 30 2018 Seeking Alpha reported Gateway Casinos still has Too Much Debt.

So now the BC NDP are accepting campaign contributions from Gateway casino and just approved a casino for them in Ladner. No wonder Laila is calling for a public corruption inquiry and no wonder John Horgan is saying no. He just got swallowed up in it.

Seizing the proceeds of crime is not the New York model. It is the corrupt LA model during the time of Freeway Ricky when the US crack epidemic was at it's peak. The New York model was made possible because of the Mollen Commission. That is exactly what we need in BC right now.

Pacquiao wins unanimous decision against Broner

CBS is reporting that "In his first fight on U.S. soil since 2016, and his first fight as a 40-year-old, Manny Pacquiao cruised to a unanimous decision victory over Adrien Broner at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas to retain his secondary WBA welterweight title. Using aggression and quickness, Pacquiao outclassed the reticent Broner, who sat back in an attempt to counter, but threw hardly any punches, and landed even fewer."

Pacquiao said he wants a rematch with Mayweather but Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions said Mayweather's retired and has no interest in a Pacquiao rematch. It's wise to quit while you're ahead. He might not win a second time.

Kelowna drug dealer sentenced

Castanet is reporting that "On Friday, Justice Gary Weatherill sentenced Stephan Rauner to an additional 10 months in jail, taking into account the many addiction recovery programs Rauner has completed during his year of pre-sentence custody at Okanagan Correctional Centre. The jail term is in addition to the year he's spent in pre-sentence custody, which he was granted enhanced credit for at 1.5 times actual time served."

"The two charges of trafficking a controlled substance, to which Rauner pleaded guilty last month, stem from two separate undercover police sting operations in downtown Kelowna, on July 8 and Dec. 14 2017. In the first instance, Rauner sold 0.2 grams of heroin, which also contained the much stronger opioid carfentanil, to an undercover officer in City Park."

"After he was arrested and released on bail, Rauner again sold an undercover officer drugs in downtown Kelowna, this time a small amount of methamphetamine. Rauner was addicted to crack cocaine when he was dealing the drugs in Kelowna, but he told the court he is just days away from being one year sober."

One year sober, that's great. Wait a minute. He's been in jail for a year. It would appear that one year in jail has helped him get off the crack. That sentence was in his best interest.

"The Crown had been seeking 36 months in jail for trafficking the carfentanil-laced heroin in addition to 18 months for trafficking the meth... Crown prosecutor Justin Dalton highlighted the particular harm that drugs like fentanyl and carfentanil have had in B.C. in recent years. In 2017, 75 people died from illicit drugs in Kelowna."

Exactly. Crystal meth is a horrible drug and selling heroin laced with fentanyl and carfentanil is fatal. We need to target these drug dealers and stop wasting our time and money over pot dispensaries. In 2008, RCMP Crime Prevention Program Coordinator Colleen Staresina said arresting drug dealers was too time consuming despite the public outcry at the time. Hopefully Doug McCallum's municipal force will follow Kelowna's example not Colleen Staresina's.

Surrey Six corruption cop pleads guilty and avoids jail time

Keith Fraser is reporting that "A former RCMP officer who was at the centre of a corruption case involving the Surrey Six murder investigation pleaded guilty to several offences Friday but managed to avoid jail time. Derek Brassington pleaded guilty to breach of trust and attempted obstruction of justice and received a conditional sentence of two years less a day to be served in the community. Because of a publication ban, the reasons for the sentence imposed by B.C. Supreme Court Justice Arne Silverman cannot be reported yet."

"The ban extended as well to submissions made by special prosecutor Chris Considine and defence lawyer Ian Donaldson and evidence heard at the court proceeding in a Vancouver courtroom. The conditions in Brassington’s sentence include house arrest, 100 hours of community service and a $10,000 restitution order. The pleas of Brassington, one of four Mounties charged in the case, bring to an end a key chapter in an investigation that stretches back nearly eight years." Oh but does it? Is this chapter really closed?

The publication ban expires after the trial ends. The delays caused by the RCMP cover up of this case set Jamie Bacon free for participating in and orchestrating the Surrey Six where two innocent bystanders were executed. That chapter is not over yet.

This sad saga was about police misconduct in a high profile RCMP murder investigation where unprofessional conduct wasn't the exception it was the norm. These clowns were getting drunk with witnesses, flirting with them and having sex with them. It wasn't just one cop and one witness. It was a climate of unprofessionalism that permeated the entire force let alone unit.

They are the ones that changed the name if IHIT to IHITit.

These are the clowns shagging Morgan Nicholson and providing police protection for Michael Ross and the rest of the Cub Pack to sell drugs in Surrey. It's time for them to be erased.

El Chapo and the Canadian Hells Angels

Kim Bolan is reporting on one line from a New York Times article that stated that Alex Cifuentes testified at El Chapo's trial claiming that "On the stand, Mr. Cifuentes admitted to hatching a failed murder plot with the Hell’s Angels in Canada."

The compromised BC Gang Task force's spin on that statement makes for a great screen play in a fictional novel. The National Post dives more in depth to what was actually said in court.

The National Post is reporting that court transcripts claim the target of the hit was Canadian drug trafficker Stephen Tello, also known as Catboy. As well as Tello, official court transcripts obtained by the National Post show the narco outlining a longstanding relationship for cocaine, heroin and ice (or crystal meth) deals with a man called “Tony Suzuki,” believed to be Antonio Pietrantonio, a well-known Montreal mafia operative. La Presse outlines the Montreal connection.

This proves the link between Operation Fast and Furious and cocaine in Canada.

Liberal candidate drops out of Burnaby byelection, former MLA steps up to the plate

The Canadian Press is reporting that "A former Liberal byelection candidate says her political career is probably over after an online post singled out NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh's ethnicity, but she's still considering running as an Independent." OK so what was the comment?

"StarMetro Vancouver reported that Wang urged Chinese supporters to vote for her, describing herself as the only Chinese candidate while saying Singh - her opponent in the byelection - was of Indian descent." This is straight out of the Twilight Zone.

She was speaking to Chinese voters and said she was the only Chinese candidate in the byelection which is true. She said that Jagmeet Singh wasn't of Chinese descent his descent came from India. That was also true. She was pointing out an obvious fact that some people might get confused when they hear the term south Asian. She didn't say there was anything bad about Jagmeet Singh or his ethnicity. There was absolutely no need for her to resign. This is where we take political correctness over the top and completely out of context.

The Greens aren't running a candidate. Are the conservatives? Right now it's between Jagmeet Singh and long shot Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson from Maxime Bernier's new party the PPC.

Global is reporting that "After a rocky week, the Liberals have found a new candidate for the Burnaby South byelection. Former B.C. Liberal MLA Richard Lee will face off against federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh in the race, joining the party days after former candidate Karen Wang left the race over a controversial social media post."

A former MLA from Burnaby has a much better chance.

Lunar eclipse of a blood red moon January 20th 2019

Global is reporting that "Skygazers are set to be treated to a total lunar eclipse this weekend, on top of a "super blood wolf moon." The cosmic event is the convergence of a few stellar lunar events - an eclipse coinciding with a supermoon turning an eerie blood red. The eclipse will be visible to much of the Western Hemisphere, including Canada, the U.S., Mexico and South America on Sunday, Jan. 20, and finish early Monday, Jan. 21 (ET time)."

Vox.com states it will be visible in North America. In Vancouver it will begin at 6:36 PM and end at 11:48 PM. The total eclipse will occur at 9:12 PM Pacific time. Let's hope it doesn't rain.

Fatal Shooting outside Kamloops

CFJC Today is reporting that "According to a news release, RCMP responded to a reported shooting at a home in the 1000-block of Collins Road Monday evening. At the scene, investigators found the body of an adult male. After an initial investigation, police believe the interaction resulting in the fatality was between two people who knew each other, and do not believe there is a danger to the general public." The Ashcroft-Cache Creek Journal is reporting that that the name of the deceased is Brock Ledoux.

Jasmohan Singh Bains cocaine charges coming to trial

Jasmohan Singh Bains was in court in Victoria on January 9th to set a date and will be back in court January 25th for an application. We all know who he is and who he was tied to. This is the cocaine connection to BC Rail. Neal Hall wrote a summery of the charges in 2007.

RCMP money laundering probe failed because informant was exposed

Global is reporting that "A massive RCMP investigation of alleged underground bankers in Richmond, B.C., estimated to be laundering over $1 billion per year collapsed in November because federal prosecutors mistakenly exposed the identity of a police informant who they feared could have been killed if the case proceeded, Global News has learned."

That whole case is fishy as f*ck. Seizing the proceeds of crime is not the New York Model. Enforcing the law and rooting out police corruption is. Just sayn.

Someone with a brain runs for the Peoples Party

It appears that Maxime Bernier's new political party, the People's Party of Canada, is running a candidate in the Burnaby-South byelection. Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson is a Christian blogger. She's done for. The new world order doesn't support the freedom of religion and the Canadian Charter of Rights. She has lost already by admitting that she is Christian. You'd think this was pre Constantine Rome. I am going to address how the MSM is misrepresenting her candidacy.

The MSM is billing her as a controversial anit SOGI activist but wait a minute SOGI sucks. Completely. Laura-Lynn says she disagrees with telling elementary school children there is no such thing as gender. Well so do I. Nobody wants a Gay, Lesbian or Transgender kid to be bullied or heaven forbid commit suicide. However, that's got nothing to do with telling young children there's no such thing as gender. That's simply bat sh*t crazy.

When you tell a young child there's no such thing as gender you are simply wrong because there is. Science declares there is such thing as gender. Science declares there is such thing as reproductive organs. Science declares there is such thing as sexual reproduction. If there was no such thing as gender you wouldn't need a sex change operation to change your gender.

"Maxime Bernier says his People's Party of Canada won't touch hot-button social issues such as abortion, transgender rights or gay marriage in its platform, but candidates can express their own opinions on those matters." Interesting. Free speech. What a concept.

Jennifer Clarke is a candidate for the People's Party of Canada in the Nanaimo-Ladysmith byelection. When Maxime Bernier left the Conservatives and formed his own party I was somewhat cynical. However, there are somethings I agree with him on.

I will give him a platform and specify what I do and don't agree with. Most of what he says I agree with. However, I support a free republic. That means I believe in the previous American and French dream which has faltered in our new world of hate. Diversity makes us strong.

On that note, best of luck to Jagmeet Singh, the new leader of the federal NDP who is also running in the Burnaby byelection. I like him and he isn't even from Surrey. I am however, somewhat concerned about his position on legalizing all drugs. I firmly believe that is the wrong road and for that reason I simply cannot endorse or vote for him. If he found a place in his heart to change his position on that issue, I'd be like let's go team. Until that happens it's no deal.

Inside China's war on Islam

The Guardian is reporting that there's an internment camp where Muslim minorities, mainly Uighurs, are sent against their will and without trial for months or even years. The Independent is reporting that "China’s detention of millions of Uighur Muslims in re-education camps amounts to human rights abuse on a scale not seen since in the country since Chairman Mao."

Communist China's current war on Islam isn't just a war on Islam, it's a war on religion. As we speak they are incarcerating Buddhists and Christians as well then executing them to order for organ harvesting. This is modern genocide is a war on civil liberty.

Sadly the West is blindly oblivious to this atrocity. They are more concerned with making money and arresting cell phone competitors in a trade war. We have sold our self respect.

17-year-old seriously injured in Surrey shooting

Global is reporting that "A 17-year-old is in serious condition and another person is in custody after a shooting in Surrey Wednesday night. RCMP say further investigation has ruled out road rage as the reason for a late-night shooting in a townhouse parking lot in Surrey. Police say a minor car crash between a light-coloured Jeep Wrangler and grey Toyota Sienna in a townhouse parking lot near 96th Avenue and Prince Charles Boulevard at 11:15 p.m. resulted in the driver of the Jeep pulling out a gun and firing into the Sienna."

"The 17-year-old victim was driven the hospital where he is in serious but stable condition. A 32-year-old suspect was tracked down, arrested, and is in custody. Police say it appears the shooting was targeted, but does not appear to be gang-related."

The City of Vancouver is still f*cking over the Emerys

This is a perfect example of political corruption in British Columbia. Quebec has no political corruption compared to BC. News 1130 is reporting that "One of Vancouver’s biggest pot brands, Cannabis Culture is closing all of its dispensaries in the city. This follows a BC Supreme Court decision from last month, ordering dozens of illicit cannabis dispensaries to close their doors - or else. Cannabis Culture was one of the chains on the losing end of that case. A statement from CEO Jeremiah Vandermeer says the city has been threatening staff with arrests, fines, jail time, and forced closures if they did not comply with the decision."

These are not illegal dispensaries. These are unlicensed dispensaries. Now that pot has been legalized and the BC NDP adopted the free market model, it should be a simple process for existing dispensaries to obtain permits. This is outrageous. They's closing down pot dispensaries now that pot is legal and they're handing out free heroin. Vancouver City Hall is f*cked up.

It is also unequal protection of the law. The City of Vancouver is closing down the most credible dispensaries in the Country while they refuse to stop the Black Door and the Bulldog Cafe across the street. It doesn't get any more corrupt than that. If Andy Richards can sell Cop Pot then the Emerys can sell Cannibals Culture. Give your head a shake.

Update: What the city is doing is making up a bunch of stupid rules with the intent of screwing them over then creating a tax paid task force to enforce those stupid rules. One of the rules is that dispensaries can't be within a certain distance from a school. That one makes sense. Another rule is that a dispensary can't be within a certain distance of an existing dispensary. That one does not make sense. Gas stations are allowed to be across the street for each other.

We really don't want dispensaries all over the city. Keeping them in certain areas would be preferable. Instead of handing out free heroin we should let dispensaries open up all over the DTES. That would be in everyone's best interest.

While the Emerys were waiting for their right to apply for a permit, the city gave a permit to Tokyo Smoke up the street. Now the city says the Emerys can't have a permit because their original location is too close to an existing dispensary. That is bullsh*t. City hall is elected by the citizens. When they start screwing up it's time to elect a new city counsel. Surrey did. It's that easy.

Instead of forming a new marijuana bylaw task force, the police need to form a fentanyl task force. This is exactly how Dianne Watts screwed up Surrey when she was in office. She obsessed over grow ops which no one cared about and did absolutely nothing about the public sale of crack and crystal meth which was killing businesses in Newton and Whalley.

The police in Vancouver need to be more worried about getting fentanyl off the street then pot dispensaries. Wasting tax dollars on this new pot task force without addressing fentanyl and harder drugs is criminal culpability. Squamish RCMP miss the point.

The Mob Mentality hijacks the Pipeline Protest

Since the media is completely misrepresenting the new pipeline protest I will point out the obvious since the majority of people have no idea what they are actually protesting. In BC, Vancouver specifically, there were large demonstrations against the Trans Mountain Pipeline that would bring unrefined Alberta Tar Sands oil to be shipped through the Port of Vancouver. The courts have halted that pipeline temporarily.

After that happened, John Horgan from the NDP announced the approval of the LNG Natural Gas pipeline to Kitimat. Everyone was patting themselves on the back for a job well done. Burning Natural Gas is much cleaner than burning coal. This pipeline has been approved by the democratically elected government and all twenty First Nation Bands in the area.

What we are seeing is a handful of members from some of those bands maintaining a blockade saying we disagree with our First Nation Leaders. We the minority want to overthrow the democratic will of the majority. That is what we are seeing. What's even more absurd is seeing protests in Toronto and the United States in "Solidarity" with the coup against democracy.

This isn't tar sands oil, it's natural gas. I don't support this protest because it is protesting Democracy. Yes water is sacred. So is democracy and you defile it when you trample over it.

TransCanada signs all elected First Nations along $4.7-billion gas pipeline route through B.C.

"TransCanada has completed benefit agreements with all 20 elected First Nation bands along its Coastal GasLink pipeline route from Dawson Creek to Kitimat."

LNG Canada set new standard for First Nations consultation

LNG Approval: A spectacular day for British Columbians

Trans Mountain Pipeline Controversy

The Trans Mountain Pipeline is more controversial because it contains unrefined tar sands oil. The Alberta government is running commercials in BC supporting that pipeline called Keep Canada Working. In that commercial they admit that pipeline is not for domestic use or for selling oil to the US it is for foreign markets specifically China.

The commercial claims it will help Canada become less dependent on the US and have the ability to sell oil to China at a higher price but that is simply untrue. China owns our oil rights. Selling oil to China for less than it costs us to produce it is bad business. Selling oil or electricity to Canadians for more than we are selling it to foreign markets is also bad business.

The LNG pipeline in Northern BC is different. It has the approval of the First Nation Leaders.

This project takes natural gas from Dawson Creek to an LNG export facility near Kitimat.

This pipeline has absolutely nothing to do with the Tar Sands you f*cking idiots.

Kitimat, B.C., mayor defends LNG project - Green Justice supports LNG

Crystal Smith, chief councillor of the Haisla Nation, was emotional at Tuesday morning's announcement. "On behalf of our entire nation, we extend our gratitude … for the investment being made in Haisla territory," she said. "Haisla … history is unfolding before our eyes. We are having a share and we are having our say."

LNG Canada raised the bar on consultation process with First Nations

"LNG Canada made headlines last October when it announced that it was proceeding to build a massive liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal in coastal Kitimat, B.C. to bring the province’s natural gas to overseas markets. What was less covered was the literally years of consultation and engagement that resulted in approximately 25 individual agreements with affected Indigenous groups by LNG Canada and Coastal GasLink (the owner and operator of the 670-km pipleline that will deliver gas to the LNG export terminal). These agreements were signed by elected officials on behalf of their more than 15,000 members."

LNG Canada’s export terminal will enable coal-reliant customer nations to reduce GHG emisssions. Natural gas is clean burning. Coal is not. Green Justice supports LNG out of Kitimat and opposes coal expansion out of Surrey.

Vancouver takes a wrong turn on opioid treatment

The National Post is reporting that "B.C. gives up on its addicts and decides to just keep them on drugs. Exactly how will installing vending machines with high-dose opioids help drug addicts kick their habit?" The National Post nailed it. Hey ho, Justin Trudeau and the BC NDP have got to go.

"The British Columbia public health authorities are making a huge mistake. The province is advancing a series of reckless interventions that are counterproductive in fighting the opioid epidemic. If B.C. continues in this manner, the province is destined to remain in a state of perpetual opioid addiction." That is only in the pharmaceutical companies best interest.

"Ottawa recently granted approval of a B.C. pilot to distribute high-dose hydromorphone, a potent opioid, three times daily at supportive housing units and supervised injection sites. Drug users are free to use the hydromorphone as they please; authorities anticipate many will crush and inject the opioids to intensify their high. Moreover, the province has plans to grant qualified opioid users biometric access to vending machines of hydromorphone for drug users’ convenient consumption." This is NOT the Portugal model. This is the highway to Hell.

The Portugal model implemented mandatory treatment. This is not treatment this is the opposite. It is once again promoting addiction. It is a direct contradiction to the BC government's recent class action lawsuit against the opioid industry. Now they are going to have to sue themselves.

The Portland Hotel Society is dripping in corruption. It is in a conflict of interest.

CBC reported that the B.C. government has released details of a damning audit that shows a non-profit group that looks after some of Canada's poorest citizens spent thousands of dollars on lavish hotels, limousine rides, expensive dinners and even a trip to a Disney resort. Separate financial reviews examining expenses by the Portland Hotel Society - which runs Canada's only supervised injection site - have uncovered alleged misuse of corporate credit cards, unsupported expenses and inadequate criminal record checks.

The Huffington Post reported that Jenny Kwan is back from an unpaid leave she took after government audits revealed financial irregularities at the Portland Hotel Society, including lavish travel expenses. Kwan says she believed her former husband Dan Small covered the travel expenses for herself and their two children, but audits reveal the society covered the costs. Those aren't volunteers at the Portland Hotel Society. Those are paid staff members.

Harm reduction programs like safe injection sites don't beat addiction. They just sustain it.

Dr. Colin Mangham on Insite

“I call on the committee, especially the elected representatives, to stop allowing a group of activists, whatever else they're clothed in, to dictate Canada's drug policies. The people of Canada and elected officials need to set drug policy.’

Dr. Colin Mangham speaks to Parliament

"The most telling thing I saw that never found its way into the media was that only a small percentage of drug users use Insite. It's not reaching the cocaine users. An even smaller portion use it for the majority of their injections. As I told CNN, it's like building a dyke out of chicken wire. Why, then, is this still being clung to? "

Ottawa Police officer faces sexual harassment allegations as well as domestic assualt

CBC is reporting that "CBC News has learned that an Ottawa police officer accused of assaulting a woman is also being investigated internally for allegedly sexually harassing rookie officers he was assigned to mentor. The harassment allegations are coming to light more than a year after Const. Carl Keenan, 42, was charged by MRC des Collines police with assault causing bodily harm following an off-duty incident in La Peche, Que., on Dec. 14, 2017. Ottawa police issued a news release five days after Keenan's arrest and called the incident a domestic matter."

Steven Skinner and Opération Loquace

CBC recently ran an interesting documentary in French about Steven Skinner, the guy from Halifax that murdered Larry Amero's co accused Frédéric Lavoie in Columbia. Opération Loquace listed six men as heads of that international drug ring tied to the Hells Angels: Larry Amero, Mihale Leventis, Rabih Alkhalil, Shane Maloney, Frédéric Lavoie and Timoleon Psiharis.

Interesting to note that Benoit Roberge, the dirty cop from Quebec that was caught selling information to the Hells Angels told Frédéric Lavoie about the bust ahead of time so he and Timoleon Psiharis skipped town. Larry Amero and Shane Maloney were busted on the first day while Rabih Alkhalil and Mihale Leventis were arrested soon after.

Frédéric Lavoie who skipped town without letting Larry know about the pending bust was murdered and dismembered by Steven Skinner in Colombia. Timoleon Psiharis, who also skipped town after receiving early notice of the pending drug bust was murdered in Greece of all Places. Psiharis was tortured, doused with acid and beaten to death in Greece in 2012.

So is that how Damion Ryan got his Filthy Few patch? And the dirty cops have him on their payroll now too. God help us. No one else will. Gang enforcement in BC is COMPROMISED.

Shane Maloney does not have ties to the West End gang in Montreal. He's just a local loser from Burnaby that Larry knew. He is the illegitimate son of a waitress at a bar. That is all.

First Surrey Shooting of the New Year

The Peace Arch News is reporting that "Police in Surrey say nobody was hurt after shots were fired at a house in Guildford Wednesday night. Surrey RCMP say it happened in the 14000 block of 115A Avenue just after 6:30 p.m. Police say “evidence was located” confirming that shots had been fired. Nobody was in the house at the time, police said. RCMP say a black Honda CRV SUV was seen driving away with its headlights off, and a similar vehicle was located. Three people were detained but one had been released as of Thursday morning. Two men, in their 30s and 40s, remain in custody as the investigation continues. “The Honda has been seized for investigational purposes,” Sergeant Chad Greig said. Police are calling it a targeted incident.”

Toronto had their first shooting New Years Day.

Two men charged after shots fired at Surrey house

The Peace Arch News is reporting that "Christopher Boucher, 30, has been charged with one count of unlawfully discharging a prohibited or restricted firearm, one count of possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm, one count of possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm without being the holder of an authorization or licence and one count of occupying a vehicle knowing there was a prohibited or restricted firearm in the vehicle."

"Jamie Tibbs, 42, has been charged with one count of possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm, one count of possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm without being the holder of an authorization or licence and one count of occupying a vehicle knowing there was a prohibited or restricted firearm in the vehicle. A third person has been released without charges."

Hells Angel on Death row in Thailand

9 News is reporting that "A Perth member of the notorious Hells Angels and his wife have been sentenced to death in Thailand for trying to smuggle half a tonne of crystal methamphetamine into Australia. Luke Cook, 34, and his Thai wife Kanyarat Wechapitak, 40, were arrested at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport in December and charged over a 2015 plot to smuggle an estimated $300 million worth of the drug - also known as ice - into Thailand then on to Australia. A Thai court has sentenced the couple to death but that is expected to be commuted to life in prison, according to media reports."

As we reported December 2017 "Cook, owner of the Piss Stop Bar in Pattaya, was convicted in 2016 of helping Australian kick-boxer and former Sydney businessman Antonio Bagnato flee Thailand after he murdered Wayne Schneider, another Hells Angels member and prominent figure of Sydney's underworld, in 2016."

As we reported February 2017, Antonio Bagnato received the death sentence for murdering Wayne Schneider. Only now ABC is reporting that Bagnato's murder charge was overturned, and he was instead sentenced to three years for assault." Things that make ya go hmmmm.... Three years for murder? That's pretty shady. With friends like that, who needs enemies?

New Years Day on Mount Seymour 2019

I went snowshoeing up Mount Seymour this morning. It stared snowing heavily riding my bike up the mountain and continued hiking all the way up to Brockton Point. At First Peak it started to break and by Third Peak it cleared up nicely. This is a short video clip from the summit of Third Peak. All is quiet on New Years Day. This is a video clip from the London Fireworks last night. For me New Years doesn't start until the sun breaks on the horizon New Years Day.

New Years 2019: Pressing Forward

They say a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. That is very true. If you don't take that first step, you will never arrive at your destination. Last year our theme was free Tibet and free yourself. Now it's time to press forward. Hard work forever pays yo. The ability to work is not a curse, it is a blessing. Work is the means of all accomplishment. There is no joy without work.

When I was in Ireland, my parents sent me a poster of an old workhorse pulling a heavy load during a blizzard. The caption read, when the going gets tough, the tough get going. That image stuck with me. When times get tough, the tough get to work.

Thomas Paine once said: "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph."

Martin Luther King once said “The belief that God will do everything for man is as untenable as the belief that man can do everything for himself. It, too, is based on a lack of faith. We must learn that to expect God to do everything while we do nothing is not faith but superstition.”
