The Harper nightmare is over for Canada — and for me as well. I am no longer “the blacklisted artist” — and may actually be welcome on the Hill! Battling the oppressive Harper government will forever be on my resume — and something I can be proud of.

Michael Harris, "If existing legislation can turn an artist into a threat, imagine what could happen under C-51. Neil Young will be pretty much done."
As Stephen Harper transforms Canada into a nation of suspects and self-censors and his minions come up with justifications for Bill C-51, their excuses have gone from the lame to the ludicrous.

I blinked a few times and then laughed when I saw this tweet… (Stephen Harpers favourite banned artist and UVic Visual Arts MFA alum Franke James returns for Oct 9 event) UVic’s tweet about me being “Harper’s favourite ‘banned’ artist” is a funny twist on what actually happened to me when I poked, prodded and challenged our Dear

My Dangerous Art Event in Vancouver Sept.24/15
BC Civil Liberties echoes my feelings when it says, “We believe it is a critical moment for free expression rights in Canada. In just the last two years, cities have passed laws curtailing the right to demonstrate, scientists in employ of the government have had their voices muzzled, and ‘anti-terrorism’ laws are being used to limit our rights to free speech.”

The BCCLA Members’ Evening in support of freedom of expression will take place at 7:00 pm on September 24, 2015 at Performance Works, 1218 Cartwright Street, in Vancouver, BC

Amazing, the doors the Harper Government unwittingly opened for me...

In Victoria? Join me for the exhibition opening of “The Real Poop on Social Change” at The Dock. Chat about social change art over a glass of wine or beer on Thursday, October 9, 2014 from 4:30pm to 7:00pm.
It's a great line-up! I will be joined by Charlotte Kingston, BC Civil Liberties Association, Carol Linnitt, DeSmog Canada, and Dr. Thomas F. Pedersen, The Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions in saying a few words about the power of art to accelerate positive change — and why we need to vigorously protect our Charter right to free expression.

Fabulous service that doesn't stop when you move away! We bought some beautiful modern furniture at Studio Y in Victoria -- and then a year later we moved to Vancouver. We've had several reasons to call and ask their advice -- and they've really followed through. The team at Studio Y have been super helpful in connecting us with the people and resources we need. That is great after-sales service. Bravo!
