#Harperman  Our veterans feel justifiably betrayed by the Harper government and have set up a "Vote Anyone But Conservative" website. 

From the National Post, "An auditor general’s report late last year said one in five ex-soldiers seeking mental health care had to wait up to eight months for their application to be reviewed. Nine regional offices that served veterans were closed by early 2014 despite complaints to former veterans affairs minister Julian Fantino."

Orwellian indeed.
Stephen Harper, who won by an uncomfortably small margin in the last election, has passed laws that may keep voters who oppose him from the polls

We were there in March and had a similar 1 star experience. Too bad they haven't seemed to correct their service issues. The place looks really nice but our experience was ruined by the poor service. +Julieanna's Patio Cafe +Pauletta Newett

I travel all around the world, and I must say this was the WORSE MEAL I EVER HAD. My tortilla soup was served cold. I order prime rib (medium) and my co-worker ordered a skirt steak (medium rare). Both pieces of meat were cooked well done. My co-worker mentioned that his steak was over cooked, but the waiter said nothing and never offered to correct the situation. My prime rib was replaced with a piece of prime rib that was so rare that I couldn't cut it, let alone eat it.

We paid for the two beers and appetizer and left.

+Saputo It is my understanding that Chilliwack Cattle Sales supplies milk to your company.  Please let us know that you will no longer be purchasing and/or using any products from Chilliwack Cattle Sales until the SPCA has completed an investigation  into the recently alleged horrific cattle abuse on their premises and that Chilliwack Cattle Sales have instituted appropriate measures to ensure that abuse like this never happens again.  What safeguards do you implement when you first vet prospective suppliers and what safeguards do you have on an ongoing basis to guard against the abuse of animals as is recently alleged to have been going on at Chilliwack Cattle Supplies?
The B.C. SPCA has recommended animal cruelty charges against eight employees of a Chilliwack dairy farm after they were caught on hidden camera allegedly abusing cattle. The employees were suspended Friday after the allegations surfaced. On Monday night, all eight were fired from Chilliwack Cattle Sales, Canada's largest dairy farm.

Saputo finally heard the growing chorus of concerned consumers and their recent refusal to use any milk from the BC Milk Marketing Board has led the Board to destroy milk coming from Chilliwack Cattle Sales.

Please Contact Diana McQueen & Peter Kent To Save The Little Smoky Caribou Herd From Extinction

It is really disheartening to see what is happening to our woodland caribou in Alberta, Canada.    

As an Alberta youngster in the 60's I remember trips to forested areas with my parents and I marvelled at the diversity of wildlife and the beautiful wilderness that we were blessed with.  So much has changed these past fifty years.  Now our wilderness lies scarred and naked and our wildlife has been swept away as we carve up our most pristine wilderness with abandon.  

Some day our grandchildren and their descendents will hold us in contempt for allowing species after species to perish needlessly.  We had fair warning nearly thirty years ago that we were on the path to endangering these majestic animals.

We are terrible custodians of the land we live on.  Shame on us for letting this happen!

Please share this post with others and take a few minutes to send an email (addresses below) to Diana McQeen and Peter Kent.  Let them know that as government leaders responsible for the environment they need to act now to save the Little Smoky Caribou Herd from extinction.

Well all I can say I will surprised if Harper does not get reelected as some of the alternitives are easily able to promises which in this economy will be hard to keep.

In the map below, the little green speck on the map of Alberta just to the right of Jasper Park is the last refuge left to the Little Smoky Caribou Herd.  Their intactness area is under assault by our resource extraction efforts and soon the herd will be gone forever unless government leaders step in and give the herd real protection.
