Too Funny --



Came across this on Facebook couldn't see who put it together but thought it was actually quite an accurate depiction of our area.

I am sure all sorts of copyright is being infringed upon, but for now it is good for a chuckle.

I am sure if someone took the time they could find several other characters that represent Nanaimo quite well, especially our local politicos.

Canadian Gas Prices - Out of Control


That $1.25 Toronto gas price looks pretty good when you consider what we in British Columbia keep having to fork out for at the pumps.

Our fearless premier is striking some kind of task force to investigate the high cost of gasoline in this province. Perhaps there is some merit to the taxpayer group that are offering to send Mr. Horgan a mirror, to help him discover the reason for our high gas prices.

Mr. Horgan's logic does seem a bit sketchy when you consider he is suing to stop a pipeline on the one hand, and then threatening to sue if a pipeline doesn't supply BC.

Canadian political 'leadership' is perhaps one of the biggest crisis we have faced in our nation, since confederation.

Nanaimo Town Hall - Meet Your New Council

Opinion
Screengrab from Facebook
Inventing New Ways To Increase Your Taxes!!

The previous city council could best be described as the gang that couldn't shoot straight. They were however able to hold the line on tax increases albeit in what could best be described as one huge gong show.

The city taxpayers had enough of that group of city clowncillors and so they kicked them out and brought in a whole bunch of fresh faces, with the exception of longtime Nanaimo politico Mr. Krog.

It is safe to say that CUPE was delighted to once again have a union-friendly group controlling the city purse strings and the quickly signed union agreement was proof of that fact.

City taxes are set to increase by a whopping 5% this year which of course is not the only tax increase taxpayers will have to choke down. Of course the Regional District, School District, NRGH and the library will all be coming looking for increases as well.

The 'Climate Emergency" recently declared by the Tax 'n Spend Specialists at city hall is just one more creative way of getting deeper into the local taxpayers pocket. Just a sign of the rarified air folk start breathing once they become members of city council. Now, they are going to address the climate emergency.  Anyone else notice they are having trouble keeping the garbage picked up on time lately??

This is just the first year for this bunch and they are just getting warmed up. Hang onto your wallets, it's going to be a tough four years.

The Recycling Delusion

Think You Are Saving The Planet???
Click image for complete article

In the first of a three part series Global news examines the reality of the recycling industry in Canada and how much of it is merely a delusion.

"What once could be sold for profit now costs money to haul away, and the notion that Canadians are saving the planet by putting things in a blue bin is proving to be a delusion."

We here in Nanaimo totally rejected what is the best form of recycling which of course is a waste to energy plant, but the local green screamers of course shouted that down in favour of bowing to the god that recycling has become for many.

Different Governance Beginning To Show

 US Economic Growth

The US economy has grown more than most economists expected in the first quarter of 2019 with a GDP growth of 3.2%


Meanwhile in Canada ........

 Canadian Economy
Click image for full article.

The Canadian economy practically came to a halt with a three month growth rate of only 0.1%. Falling oil prices had an impact but the slowdown extended well beyond the energy sector.

Is it possible that relentless tax increases and the effects of the green screamers in Canada are having the desired chilling effect on the Canadian economy? While we continue to import oil on the east coast (which exports Canadian wealth) our own BC government continues to obstruct the sale of our natural resources to the world market? Combine that with crippling tax grabs disguised as climate change taxes and never-ending hoops business has to jump through in Canada and you have the perfect storm which is resulting in a Federal deficit budget of $20 billion this year.
Remember our prime minister said the budget would be balanced in a few years? He also said it would take care of itself.
You might want to ask candidates in the local election how they plan to address our flailing economy. You don't need to ask local Liberal candidate, as her party is already demonstrating how they will deal with the economy, the results are plain for all to see.
The NDP candidate seems to think there is sufficient funds available to provide free meds to all, of course he is not very specific on what the plan will actually cost or where the money comes from. If you believe his 'talking points' you are one of the gullible that should have your voting rights suspended.

Easter Sunday

It is not about bunnies and chocolate eggs

It is about the salvation of OUR eternal souls

This image from Mel Gibson's 'The Passion of the Christ' while more graphic than the sanitized Jesus on the Cross usually shown, still does not convey what was done to the only sinless man to ever walk.


While nearly completely ignored, what the Christ endured at the hands of vile, sinful men when he was scourged with 39 flesh-ripping lashes is all part of the crucifixion story. We are told in the book of Isaiah :


But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.


Traditionally, Easter Sunday will see the biggest spike in Church attendance than any other time of year. It will be celebrating the Resurrection, but before that Glory came the whipping post, the humiliation, the mocking, the spitting upon, struggling to carry His Cross, being nailed naked to the most cruel means of death imagined and finally death and descent into Hell so that sinful man could be forgiven.


Those who hear the message and choose to ignore or mock it will be condemning themselves to eternal damnation from the presence of GOD. 


The Greatest Expression of Love
the world has ever seen

God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son to pay the price for the sins of all of mankind. That sin is what separates us from Him and our entrance to heaven. No sin can enter heaven and if ours is not forgiven we have denied ourselves entrance to eternal life in heaven.

We are told in the Holy Bible "And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among people  by which we must be saved [for God has provided the world no alternative for salvation]." 

We are told how we may be saved and taken into heaven rather than into hell.
"Believe in the Lord Jesus [as your personal Saviour and entrust yourself to Him] and you will be saved, if you acknowledge and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord [recognizing His power, authority, and majesty as God], and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
Amplified Bible
What must you do to be saved from eternal damnation?

It is not complicated; if prayed sincerely, simply say:

JESUS save me, a sinner .........

Free Speech Under Assault In Canada

Click Image For Full Article

A tribunal has found a man guilty and fined him $55,000. His 'crime' claiming that a biological male was in fact a biological male who chose to be identified as a female.

According to the article: “During the British Columbia elections in the spring of 2017, Christian activist Bill Whatcott passed out hundreds of flyers notifying people that one of the local candidates for Parliament, Morgane Oger — who claimed to be a woman and dressed as a woman — was actually a man named Ronan Oger. (In fact, up until five years ago, Oger lived relatively normally as a father with his wife and two children.)”
That was it. He simply reported the truth: Morgane was a biological male.
As a result the tribunal found: the Canadian tribunal, which issued a 104-page ruling, concluding that: 1) “Mr. Whatcott’s conduct was discrimination contrary to the Code” and that he must cease and desist from such action in the future; 2) he must “pay Ms. Oger $35,000 as compensation for injury to her dignity, feelings, and self‐respect; 3) he must “pay Ms. Oger $20,000 as costs for improper conduct”; and 4) he must pay Oger interest due. (The Code in question is the Human Rights Code, to my knowledge, related to but not identical to Bill C-16.)

Regardless what you think about Whatcott's religious views this finding should send a chill up the spine of anyone who embraces free speech as one of the most basic of rights we have in Canada. 

How the 'opinion' of one person can actually injure someone's dignity, feelings and self-respect is enough to blow your mind.
