Saskatchewan sends their Homeless to British Columbia

Saskatchewan sends their Homeless to British Columbia

The Saskatchewan Ministry of Social Services has a unique way of taking care of their homeless population, including those who may have a history of addiction or mental health. Their quick fix is to pay to bus them to Vancouver and Victoria in British Columbia. Problem solved. For them. Not so for BC, and not so for those who are shipped away to neither home nor job, and no health care until they qualify.

Two young First Nations men were each bought one-way bus […]

Exploring British Columbia’s Okanagan Wine Country

Exploring British Columbia's Okanagan Wine Country, Okanagan Valley, BC, Canada

Working in the travel business, we are always looking for places we’ve never been to before. A friend of ours told us about an area of Canada worth a visit. We discovered a valley in BC with a unique geography, fine climate and superb wines. Located in British Columbia, Canada, the agricultural Okanagan Valley reinvented itself when someone discovered that the landscape and the benefits of the mild climate had potential for growing grapes.

The real reason British Columbia is spending $9 billion on Site C Dam

The real reason Clark and Co. are spending $9 billion on Site C Dam in Northern British Columbia: Ben Parfitt, Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives

From a lookout high atop a windswept bluff, the scale of work already underway at the site of a third mega-dam across the Peace River is daunting. Large tracts of boreal forest are logged. Vast amounts of topsoil are stripped away for what could one day be a trailer city housing hundreds of workers. Gravel from the fish-bearing river continues to be excavated to build a roadbed that […]

Kinder Morgan pipeline costs rise by over $1 Billion

Kinder Morgan pipeline costs rise by over $1 billion. British Columbia, Canada.

Trans Mountain Pipeline’s evidence exaggerates benefits and ignores costs

VANCOUVER—A new study prepared by Simon Fraser University observes that costs to build the Trans Mountain Expansion Pipeline (TMEP) have risen by $1.3 billion and concludes that, rather than making money for Canada, the pipeline would now actually cost Canadians an estimated $7.4 billion. Oil producers would find lower costs shipping undiluted bitumen by rail; and Canada as a whole would come out ahead if the pipeline were not built.

Trophy Hunting: No Right to Kill Wild Animals

Hunter in Camouflage. Trophy Hunting: No Right to Kill Wild Animals, British Columbia, Canada

In our free and democratic British Columbia, we can challenge a personal injustice when we encounter it. If our rights are infringed upon, we can use our laws and democratic system to stop the infringement and restore our rights. Animals have no such protection. We, the people, are their sole protection against abuse, cruelty, exploitation, physical deprivation, and brutalization for entertainment.

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” […]

Powder Highway in the Kootenay Rockies British Columbia

Powder Highway in the BC Kootenay Rockies, British Columbia, Canada

Where is the heart of skiing in North America? Does it beat most vibrantly in ever-popular Colorado? How about Utah, with its talcum snows? Or perhaps Lake Tahoe?

No. No. And no.

Oh, those are all worthy destinations, but my vote goes to a region that many American skiers and snowboarders have never even visited: the southeast corner of British Columbia. Perhaps no place else on earth possesses such a wealth of ski options as here in the Kootenay Rockies, where the topography accordions spectacularly […]
