While we can agree that Fuhr (is that his name? Interesting...) is confused and ignorant, he's not my representative, and thank goodness for that.

GB strongly suggested that everyone vote Liberal for various reasons, evidently the majority took GB’s advice.....


What I actually counselled was that I was in favor of a Liberal minority. I didn't want to hand the Bhangra dancing airhead JT a majority, that's for sure. The only time I've ever felt even remotely comfortable with the Liberals in power federally was during the time of Paul Martin. This government is being run by far left ideologues, and run really poorly. No one should be surprised by that.

We’ve now learned to never listen to GB, all he ever does is lead you down the wrong path. :biggrin:


anyone listening to anyone on these forums should have their head examined, but especially anyone advocating for the NDP or Green party. Ever.

Poster isn’t even trying anymore. Used zir typical playing dumb response to pretend post said something different than it did. But it falls flat given the positioning of the quotations. Maybe ze’s getting tired? Comprehension skills starting to go. Could be any number of things. Could be a MOCA test in zir future.

What language is this written in? Maybe I could take it to the Kelowna MP for a translation - what's his name again?

I do stealth advocating for Canadian tourism. It goes like this: take awesome photos in RAW file, process them nicely, convert to JPEG or TIFF, and publish on American facebook sites.

Pacific NW Waterfalls recently got Helmcken Falls with the ice cone and handy dandy driving times attached to it.

Washington/Idaho/Oregon Abandoned Sites recently got asked for guest spots from Canada. Admin said, "yes." Again, great abandoned sites here in BC with awesome directions and information.

You know, that sorta thing. :biggrin:

I figure it's the least I can do. :admin:

Personally, I didn't see many tourists last summer, smoke too thick.

On the upside, Canadians took a lot of winter vacations elsewhere.

It was a brutal year, with the perfect storm of smoke and floods. Let's hope the investment of time and money in tourism will pay dividends for all of us in the Okanagan!
