The Huffington Post is reporting that The RCMP spent just over $900,000 in overtime pay over the course of a five-month undercover operation that led to the arrests of two terrorism suspects in British Columbia. Documents obtained by The Canadian Press through a freedom-of-information request show the Mounties paid at least 200 people, mostly police officers, $911,090.54 for overtime work during the investigation, which was code named Project Souvenir.
This was just the overtime bill for the ridiculous entrapment case. The overall cost of the operation was not provided. Where is the public accountability for tax dollars misspent?
Rob Gordon, a criminologist at Simon Fraser University said "Here, the concern very much is that all of this money may have been wasted because police may have overstepped an ethical mark ... about encouraging people to do things," Gordon said, referring to the question of whether the couple were entrapped. "If they're encouraging them, what was the purpose? The answer to that is, well, to get a conviction: to show that they're doing something about terrorism issues." "That's a cynical view,'' he added. Indeed. Without the RCMP there was no means or motive to commit the crime. It was a huge waste of tax dollars. BTW CSIS are still in contempt of court. Again.
David Duke, a white nationalist and former Klu Klux Klan grand wizard, said voting for anyone besides Donald Trump “is really treason to your heritage.” So CNN asked Trump about the endorsement and asked him three times to disavow the support his campaign is getting from white supremacist groups. Huffington Post posted his response. Now he's claiming he had a faulty earpiece and couldn't hear what group he was being asked about. Yet he repeated the term white supremacists so he did hear that part.
Mashable.com is reporting that "While Trump's focus on immigration policy has indeed proved popular among Republican voters, many of his remarks - such as calling Mexican immigrants drug runners, criminals and rapists - have drawn fierce criticism from rival candidates within his own party and liberals alike." His position on immigration makes the endorsement from white supremacists not very surprising.
I have two points to make in this circus side show. First it is astounding that the KKK still exists in today's society. We are supposed to be getting more educated and more civilized as time progresses. Instead we are de evolving into neanderthals and hillbillies. F*ck the South. Who would fight a war over the right to have slaves? Those are not the kind of people civilized human beings would want to be an a union with.
Donald Trump says he likes Canada and wouldn't build a wall between the US and Canada just between the US and Mexico yet he already has. Donald Trump has totally alienated Canada by making such insanely racist comments about all Latinos. Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. The shocking and disappointing thing is how far the raging lunatic has gone in this campaign. If he becomes president there is no way in hell I'm crossing the 49th parallel. People talk about enemies of the Constitution both foreign and domestic. Donald Trump is a domestic enemy of the Constitution. Yet he isn't the only one.
I had a friend who was unlawfully detained at the truck border crossing last year. When I went there the following day to lodge a complaint they told me my friend was not entitled to a lawyer and that they were not governed by Constitutional law at the border they were governed by immigration law. I kid you not. They tore up the Constitutional right in front of me and danced on it's ashes. They most certainly were not oath keepers. If they claim that Canadians are not protected by the Canadian charter of rights or the US Constitution while on American soil and can be arrested without charge, unlawfully detained and denied a lawyer at will, they why and the hell would any Canadian want to go there to visit?
In contrast Justin Trudeau is being billed as the anti Trump. Thank God for that.
My second point is that this is indeed a circus side show. Don't vote for this raging lunatic, vote for the dirty crook instead. That's what we are looking at when he look to Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush as alternatives. Have we forgotten the Bush Clinton fraud already? It all started in Mena, Arkansas when Bill Clinton was governor. Hillary Clinton's law firm were up to their eyeballs in it.
Al Martin claimed that Jeb Bush instructed him to commit investment fraud to raise money for Iran contra. The Bush family have been involved in investment fraud and crashing banks for generations. Buyer Beware. Don't jump out of the frying pan into the fire.
Donald Trump’s business disaster is worse than you think.

Sylvester Stallone didn't win an Oscar but he did win a Golden Globe award for his role as supporing actor in the moive Creed which was indeed epic. Tragic that Michael Jordan wasn't nominated for anything but when push comes to shove the fact remains he did an amazing job. No plastic award will change that. Creed was a great movie.
I don't normally watch the yuppie award shows but I wanted to see if Stallone won. Chris Rock was funny but some of the jokes were a bit over the top. Some of the horrible things that happened to Black people in the past are nothing to joke about. They obviously were scripting him to address the hard feelings and threatened boycott for not nominating any Black people this year. I think all the drama on both sides of the argument is extreme. It's like the first woman in space who told all the interviwers it was a shame they were making such a big deal about her accomplishment. Men and Women are equal. You making a big deal about this implies they aren't.
Joking about Black people getting shot by cops is in bad taste. The Rodney King beating was totally unacceptable. To think that kind of behavior can continue in our age diminishes all of us. We need to move forward and move past it. Rioting and looting is not the answer. Kevin Hart said it well. Tragic to hear Stallone lost his own son to heart disease in 2012. Peace.

Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee are two legendary martial artists from China who have captivated the hearts of North America for generations.Bruce Lee was more serious into the combat martial arts while Jackie Chan took it to a new level adding comedy with his amazing talent. Bruce Lee was the pioneer. The movie Dragon with Jason Lee is a great overview of his life story illustrating some of the prejudices he faced in North America as well as some of the barriers he had to break down to earn the right to teach martial arts to anyone who wanted to learn.
Bruce Lee's foundation was Wing Chun as taught by Grandmaster Yip Man. Donnie Yen did an excellent job portraying the life of Yip Man in another movie of the same name. Looks like he made a Yip Man 2 and 3 as well. I'll have to check those out. Yet although Bruce Lee's foundation was Wing Chun he was the pioneer for mixed martial arts. I often joke with kids now a days and tell them I studied MMA before it was called MMA, back when it was called JKD as in Jeet Kune Do. Bruce Lee wrote the Tao of Jeet Kune Do which was the style with no style. Dan Insanto was a student of Bruce Lee and coined the phrase absorb what is useful.
Bruce Lee was famous for movies like Fists of Fury, and Enter the Dragon. The movie Dragon highlighted the time when Bruce Lee played Kato for the Green Hornet which was tastefully and skillfully recreated in the movie Green Hornet with Jay Chou and Seth Rogen. Seth Rogen added the humor and Jay Chou added the skillful intelligence. Cameron Diaz was the beauty and the brains of that operation.
Bruce Lee's role as Kato was miles ahead of it's time. That was back when they were still doing ridiculous fight scenes with the old Batman and Robin series. In fact, Bruce Lee was suposed to go up against Robin as Kato. The script said Bruce Lee was supposed to lose to Robin but Bruce Lee said no way so they made it a draw. Bruce Lee could have kicked all their ass IRL.
Last night I watched the Chinese Zodiac with Jackie Chan on Netflix. Jackie Chan was the one who took martial arts to a whole new level. He added humour to the art welcoming in a new world of viewers. His series of movies called Rush Hour with Chris Tucker are legendary. I'm a bit hesitant about the spin off series on Netflix because there is only one Jackie Chan and one Chris Tucker but I'll give it a chance. I'm more excited about rumours of a Rush Hour 4 in the mix.
Jackie Chan told a funny story about how he was on the set with Bruce Lee in the filming of enter the dragon. That's how Chuck Norris also got his start. At the end of the movie Chinese Zodiac, it showed some Jackie Chan outtakes over the years. He's been around since the Battle Creek Brawl and the Rumble In The Bronx. His out takes are always funny to watch. Not that it's funny to see anyone get hurt but he does an amazing amount of his own stunts.
When my son was young I never taught him martial arts. I drove him to music lessons instead. I didn't want him to be confrontational like me. I wanted him to be different and he is. He's a really nice guy. My daugher is more like me despite my attempts to steer her away from that. Sometimes you just can't fight genetics. I guess that's why she was a bit teary eyed in Sylvester Stallone's recent movie Creed. It kind of hit home. In the movie Rocky didn't teach his son to box. He said his son is a really nice guy and wanted to get out from under his dad's shadow so he moved away to a place called Vancouver. It was nice for Stallone to put in a plug for our city.
When I was young before I traveled I went to the Gung fu school in Surrey which was run by Kirck Jacques who was amazingly fit and talented. Kirk trained Ernie Jackson who went on to stunts in the movie industry. Jackie Chan has a lifetime of dangerous stunts for the world to see. His heart, his soul and his humour has made this world a better place. That we will remember forever. After all, it is laughter that can heal the broken heart so it can. Peace.
Back in New York there was a guy that called himself Wing Chun. I was like yo man why did you pick that name? You do know Wing Chun was a girl. Evidently not. I meant no disrespect. Wing Chun is an amazing martial art. It's structurally fast. Bruce Lee studied it. It's just that Wing Chun was named after a woman who founded the style. If he had really studied it he would have known that. The guy obviously had some martial arts training. He had moves. I just didn't see any Wing Chun in his arsenal. The guy was part of the original Magnificent 13 but after he left the group his loyalties became a bit confused. Wing Chun was convinced Curtis Sliwa shot himself as a false flag attack when he was making fun of John Gotti on his radio show. I told the guy straight up that was crazy. Curtis pulled some publicity stunts when the group first started but I could tell you many more real life stories of Curtis' courage and valour on the street.
CBC is reporting that "a Federal Court judge has struck down federal regulations restricting the rights of medical marijuana patients to grow their own cannabis and given the Liberal government six months to come up with new rules." I suppose this is both good and bad.
It's good because forcing patients to buy pot from expensive corporate giants or from organized crime is bad. Yet so is misinterpreting the charter of rights. "Judge Michael Phelan ruled Wednesday in Vancouver that the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations were an infringement on charter rights and declared they have no force and effect."
The right to grow your own pot has absolutely nothing to do with the charter of rights. At all. Forcing patients to buy pot from expensive pharmaceutical companies is bad but that has absolutely nothing to do with the charter of rights. It would perhaps violate the laws of natural justice not the charter of rights.
"The judge was careful to point out that the ruling does not change other laws that make it illegal for Canadians to use marijuana recreationally." Which as we know is going to change with he election of Justin Trudeau on his campaign promise to legalize it which I did not support.
A few concerns appear to be on the table. One is organized crime, the other is corporate monopolies which in this case coincide one with the other since the Hells Angels use violence to obtain a monopoly on the drug trade.
One of the first arguments those for the legalization of marijuana raise is that legalizing pot will combat organized crime and take it out of the hands of the Hells Angels. Not necessarily I argued. Exotic dancing is legal and that didn't stop the Hells Angels from using violence to take over the Exotic Dancing industry in BC. Just ask Brandy Sarionder. Oh right, she's dead.
Likewise in Amsterdam prostitution is legal and that didn't stop the Hells Angels for using extortion to buy the Yip Yam brothel for far less than what it was worth. For all practical purposes legalizing marijuana will simple make the Hells Angels unstoppable. It will prevent the police from arresting them at all unless someone has the courage to step forward when they are being threatened and extorted which as we have seen in the exotic dance industry, is highly unlikely.
However, growing it at home might. If everyone is allowed to grow it, then it would be unrealistic for the Hells Angels to threaten and extort everyone like Uncle Joe's did in Salmon Arm.
The other concern is fostering pharmaceutical monopolies on the market which would drive prices up. The NDP are always big on generic medication. Simply because whenever someone finds a treatment for a disease, the pharmaceutical companies try to patent the drug so they can charge the moon for it and make lots of money. Ripping people off with terminal illnesses is pretty dirty. Growing Pot at home for personal use only would help reduces costs.
Again, there is a difference between medicinal pot and recreational pot. Medicinal pot is high in CBD and low in THC. THC is what gets you stoned and CBD doesn't. CBD is what has medicinal properties. Pot that is high in THC but low in CBD is recreational pot. It gets you stoned not healthy. Just so we're clear on that. People want to use the medicinal excuse to buy pot that is high in THC because they just want to get stoned.

The Surrey Now is reporting that Bill Fordy has been promoted from chief superintendent to assistant commissioner. That is disgusting. Bill Fordy's claim to fame is dancing naked in front of his coworkers with toilet paper stuffed up his ass while the other end was lit on fire. He then proceeded to wiggle his ass in front of all his coworkers trying to put the fire out. It's called the dance of the flaming asshoe. At least they got the name right. No heterosexual male wants to see that and when done in font of female coworkers it constitutes sexual harassment.
More recently his claim to fame was when one of his female subordinates sent him a sex text. Only she sent it to the entire group by mistake instead of just him. This is the clown they are promoting at the RCMP and is why the RCMP are facing a class action lawsuit over sexual harassment. Bill Fordy is one of the FOCCers - Friends of Craig Callens. Tell me what did Bill Fordy, Bob Paulson and Craig Callens really do at that fishing trip at Pitt Lake? Who else was with them? Please advise.
Recently Bob Paulson got some bad press because it turned out he lied when he said he was going to look into sexual harassment in the RCMP. The CBC found out he refused to hear complaints right under his nose. Right in Ottawa one of his female subordinates became pregnant. Everyone thought Bob Paulson was the father until the paternity test showed that it was yet another married member of his staff. This promotion is disgusting and is proof the administration of the RCMP are corrupt. God help us. No one else will.
Allegations of sexual touching, bullying investigated at police college run by RCMP
RCMP's recent history of harassment, abuse and discrimination
RCMP Spokesman faces second sexual harassment lawsuit
Bullying, nudity alleged at Ottawa RCMP training school
Disgraced Alberta Staff Sergeant coming to BC
RCMP Sexual Harassment Crisis in MacLeans
Update: The problem is none of this is new news. Everyone who works with Bill Fordy knows about it. That means the person who promoted him knows it too. Craig Callens is the ringleader of this deranged circus. He is the one that promoted Fordy knowing his history. Just like they knew about Jim Brown. Craig Callens is the root of the problem. That's why they made up the term FOCCers. Craig Callens was in Prince George during the time of Judge David Ramsey.
We need to put someone new in charge of the RCMP. Someone who isn't from BC. How about a French Catholic from Quebec or an Acadian from the Maritimes? The French are passionate and have class. You wouldn't see them doing the pig farm. If the RCMP is supposed to represent rural Canada then let rural Canada administer it. The RCMP had a noble history. We have let the three stooges from BC disgrace the uniform long enough. It's time to show a little self respect.

Well this is the moment we've all been waiting for. David Giles' Kelowna cocaine trial has finally begun. Kim Bolan reported that the publication ban was lifted last friday. Today the Vancouver Province is reporting that the trial has finally begun and that Giles was in court Monday.
"Crown counsel Chris Greenwood said Giles and Hells Angels associate Kevin Van Kalkeren were the principal negotiators in a plot to purchase more than 500 kilograms of cocaine for over $14 million." David Giles, vice-president of the Kelowna chapter of the Hells Angels, is on trial in Vancouver along with Bryan Oldham, the sergeant at arms of the Kelowna chapter and three Hells Angels associates.
It was nice to see the Vancovuer Province used a picture of David Giles they obtianed from my web site. They are free to do so. All news outlets are. The only one I don't "own the copyright"to is the one of him outside the Vancouver courthouse smiling looking exactly like skeletor. That one was from the Vancouver Sun. All the others, and there are many, people sent in to me directly and the media are free to use.
This was the vice president and the sergeant at arms of the Kelowna chapter involved in a huge cocaine ring. That implicates the whole chapter just like the stolen car ring Johnny Newcome plead guilty to. After this conviction, there is no reason on earth the crown's application to seize the Kelowna clubhouse should fail. None whatsoever.
I don't like the idea of the police or the government seizing someone's home just because they found a grow op inside. This is different. This is a criminal organization doing business out of a clubhouse. When a chapter is convicted of that much criminal activity, that clubhouse should be seized under proceeds of crime legislation. That is in the public interest. I don't care what Ron Skolrood says. He has no right to act against the public interest. Again.
Before Giles the previous vice president of the Kelowna chapter was Lester Jones. He was convicted of drug trafficking in Winnipeg. A police agent bought two kilos of cocaine off of him for $72,000. Winnipeg is another chapter with a long history of drug trafficking.
In this case involving David Giles the Vancouver Province reported that "By the time the investigation was complete, the conspirators had provided close to $4 million in cash, which represented payment in full for the first 200 of 500 kilograms of cocaine, said the prosecutor." 500 kilos is a lot of cocaine. Those are high level dealers. The Vancouver Province reported that it was suposed to be 500 kilos a month.
Kim Bolan is reporting that Giles told an undercover cop that "his 'brothers' (the Kelowna Hells Angels) would take over his massive cocaine deal if anything were to happen to him." Sounds like a criminal organization to me. Sha na na na, na na na na, Skeletor, goodbye.

OK so everyone is freaking out about the fact that Robert Pickton wrote a book about how he was set up and everyone panicked and got it taken off amazon. That wasn' very bright. We know two things. We know Robert Pickton isn't innocent and we know that Robert Pickton didn't act alone. Censoring that fact yet again is not in the public interest.
In the trial, the judge gave instructions to the jury. He said the jury could convicted Robert Pickton of murder even if he wasn't the only suspect. Not only that, the judge said they could convict "Willie" even if he wasn't the main suspect, just an active participant. I.E. disposed of the bodies other people murdered. When the Hells Angels were mentioned in the Mission Woman's inquiry Wally Oppal shut it down and turned it into a Panel discussion where he could more easily censor evidence. Like how Willie was picking up prostitutes to go to a "Biker" party on his farm.
Wally Oppal also denied evidence claiming that a well known Hells Angels hang out called the Surrey House of Horrors had a bus that went to the Pickton Farm for parties with free drugs. All that evidence was censored by Wally Oppal.
The fake inquiry was suposed to hear evidence that off duty police officers attended parties at Piggy's Palace. Wally Opal prevented that evidence from being submitted. He should be in jail for the obstruction of justice. He claimed that the purpose of the fake inquiry was not to discuss the possibility of other suspects. Given the instructions of the judge to the jury which Robert Pickton's conviction was based on demands other suspects be examined. The fact that Dianne Rock was gang raped on the farm means we are morally bound to investigate other suspects.
HGH is a popular steroid used at the gym and in the UFC. When it first came out it was made from human cadavers. Another new book about the Pickton farm is called Jesus of Vancouver: The Left Coast Memoirs by Michael Goodliffe. It’s not a religious book. It talks about the young boys involved in the Vancouver sex trade. It also talks about a steroid called Human Growth Hormone, or, HGH. Prior to its production by recombinant DNA technology, it was extracted from the pituitary glands of cadavers (dead human bodies). Goodliffe claims he was told at the time Pickton sold body parts to make the steroid.
Was Robert Pickton capable of extracting the pituitary glands of cadavers? Yes he was. Was he capable of making HGH? No he wasn't. Once again that implicates other suspects as well.
Robert's brother Dave knew where the bodies were buried. There is no way he could have known that without being an accessory. We can thank CSIS for giving Dave Pickton immunity despite the fact that he was also charged with sexual assault on the same farm and convicted of a previous sexual assault. Dave Pickton's association with Jim Brown still needs to be addressed.
Of course the other definitive boo on the Pickton case is On the Farm by Stevie Cameron.The book was revised after the publication ban was lifted and contains references to evidence submitted in the trial. That's where I heard about Diane Rock's friend Janice Edwards testimony. I actually obtained a transcript of her testimony and posted it online.
The book On the Farm is very clear about the Hells Angels prolific involvement with Piggy's Palace and the Pickton farm. Page 137 of the book On the Farm states: "But the truth is that almost all the people in the community knew the Palace as a wild party place with drugs and prostitutes. And everyone knew that the bikers who attended usually finished the parties at their own place across from the Pickton farm, a clubhouse that had become infamous as a booze can serving alcohol and drugs to members and friends. By the end of 1996 the neighbourhood became known in criminal circles as a biker area, one controlled by the Hells Angels."
"Off duty police officers attended the parties and so did city officials." (p 136) "He was worried they were going to get busted at the Palace... But the place was full of cops too, lots of them, all in plainclothes." (p 138) Dave Picktonm as we all know, was a Hells Angels associate.
Holy Rockefeller Batman. The Guardian is reporting that British Corporate Communist Bernie Ecclestone claims Vladimir Putin should run Europe. "I’ve said before that I don’t much like democracy. Nothing gets done." Are we beginging to see through the corporate con yet?

Kim Bolan is reporting that the publication ban on David Giles' trial has finally been lifted and that his co accused Kevin Van Kalkeren pleaded guilty to conspiracy to import cocaine earlier this year. Kevin is to be sentenced March 18.
Trolls were claiming Kevin Van Kalkeren was the ring leader and that Giles was working for him. That is absurd. It was the other way around just like how Revel and Remple worked for Giles. In her article Kim states: "Suitcases stuffed with millions handed over at a Vancouver hotel. Cryptic text messages about massive cocaine deliveries. Secret meetings from Vancouver to Panama City. Over a series of meetings with the principal conspirators, the RCMP undercover officers obtained approximately $4 million cash in exchange for 200 kilograms of cocaine.”
This is why I said right from the beginning that trial reminded me of an old Van Halen song. The name of the song I linked to was Panama. The brainless trolls just couldn't figure it out.
Since the publication ban has been lifted and since Kim has cited Panama, I'm going to tell a story I have been wanting to tell for quite some time. I did attend the trial a couple of times on my days off. On one occasion I was the only spectator in the courtroom and Giles turned around looking right at me. I thought it was appropriate he see my face so he knows who to look for at the judgement bar of God when this life is over. I have a lot more to say then.
During the trial there was someone on the stand being questioned in Spanish. I asked the sheriff who that was and he said it was the attorney general of Panama. I was somewhat surprised. Why was a government official from Panama acting like a hostile witness? It was very strange. Turns out the attorney general for Panama is a woman so this must have been someone else.
I returned durirng a break after putting more coins in the parking meter since I was just passing through and happened to be in court that day. I saw the government official from Panama outside the courtroom with a lawyer and several supporters. I wanted to ask crown counsel about the status of publication bans and asked are you crown counsel? No he said they are right over there and pointed to a male and female. I turned and looked at him and the crew he was hanging out with. I said to myself what and the hell is a government official from Panama doing hanging out with the defense counsel and all the defense's supporters? It was suspicious as f*ck.
I will point out that this bust back in 2012 was huge. Prior to that Giles seemed untouchable. He got off scot free after being caught on wire bragging about how much money Revell was making him selling cocaine. His lawyer at the time argued that he didn't actually say what Revell did to earn the money so he got off. Another example of a corupt court. Neil Hall attended the E Pandora trial and claimed that David Giles was implicated in the Western Wind bust. The one where two and a half tons of cocaine bound for the BC Hells Angels were seized by US authorities and thanks to Richard Barszczewski, no charges were ever laid.
That's why I billed Giles as Skellator, lord of the underworld. He was even on the history channel with Mom Boucher after Boucher got out of jail on a technicality. His fisrt stolen motorcylce was after his "brothers" were murdered in the Lennoxville massacre. David Giles was a complete villain. History has recored that. Giles' arrest after putting the pressure on during the Kelowna Summer Jam was a huge success. The fact that he never made bail was priceless.
Recently there was another colossal arrest. This time of an Edmonton Hells Angel named Dominic DiPalma Jr. In 2014 I named him as the sole member in charge of the entre Whiteboy Posse in Alberta. Now everything I said in that post has come true.
Not to say I told ya so but I did. Since a couple of trolls have been insanely relentless trying to shut me down, it has become clear why I should keep things going. Yet as I said on my return things have changed. I am no longer posting inside tips on crime. I'm just reporting on crime in the news. I did what I did, I said what I said. It was for a purpose and now it is time to move ahead. I don't give a rat's ass what a sleazebag troll has to say. I just put their e-mail to spam and move on. Wherever there is truth there is opposition to it and these two recent stories about David Giles and Dominic DiPalma Jr prove there is a method to my madness and when push comes to shove, I may well be a broke ass bitch but I still rather be me. Word.
Kevin Desmond has been named the new CEO of Translink to become the public face that will help heal the bruised brand Translink has incurred. I'm not worried about the fact that he is an American. This doesn't represent foreign ownership like Harper selling our oil rights to Communist China. He has good reviews in Seattle and has experience in New York City.
The Globe and Mail reported that "Mr. Desmond conceded it would be a mistake to come to his new job with a fixed strategy. Instead, he said he will listen to customers, workers, his board, mayors and the province to decide on directions for TransLink." Well that's a good step if sincere. When Moya Greene came to Canada Post she did the exact opposite.
After crashing bombardier's stock and derailing CN she came to Canada Post with zero experience in the field claiming to know everything and that all her existing managers who had been at the job for years were stupid. She started recklessly making ridiculous changes anyone in the field could tell her wouldn't work. So yes, Kevin Desmond is indeed a breath of fresh air.
So if you really want to listen, hear this: Translink is over budget over a billion dollars a year. That's how much they consume in a regional gas tax above and beyond all the other federal and provincial gas taxes. That's why the public voted no to burning more tax dollars in a referendum on raising sales tax to help Translink waste taxes.
This isn't New York. New York City and London England have the best subway systems in the world. They are built and paid for and are very efficient. You don't need a car in those cities because the subways are much more efficient. Not here. Not at all. This is more like LA on a smaller scale. People have cars just like they do in Seattle. Tax payers are getting upset about having to keep bailing out a failing system they don't even use.
They used to have a bus that went from Guildford Mall in Surrey to the PNE in Vancouver. It went along the freeway and would take about 15 minutes. After they built Skytrain they refused to run that efficient route and made the public bus, skytrain and bus to the same destination taking a ridiculous amount more time. When they reintroduced an express bus from Langley to Vancouver along the freeway they refused to let it stop at Guildford. That is bad business.
The Mayors' tax and spend glutins council keeps rewarding political contributors by giving them contracts to over budget Skytrain expansions that we don't need. Let the existing system pay for itself before you keep going further in debt expanding it and stop giving the contract to corrupt firms banned for money laundering. That is irresponsible.
The contract for the Evergreen line was awarded to SNCL after the World Bank banned SNCL from World Bank projects for the next 10 years because of massive fraud in Quebec. Giving SNCL the contract for the Evergreen line was a criminal act.
The Compass card isn't so bad. I was hesitant at first but they offer the same discount on it as with Faresavers so I'm happy with it. Having to scan out when you leave the bus is a bit big brother but installing turnstiles in the Skytrain is a must. How much money would New York city lose every day if they got rid of turnstiles and let everyone ride on the honour system?
Executive extravagance, excessive skytrain expansion to corrupt construction companies and giving everyone free rides on the bus and Skytrain are the main sources of lost revenue. Cheers.
Gordon Clark from the Vancouver Province wrote an excellent colomb about the 420 movement. He said It’s time for Vision to stop pandering to the 4/20 crowd. He stated that "4/20 is already making headlines. This time it’s the war of words between Sarah Kirby-Yung, the Non-Partisan chairwoman of the Vancouver Park Board, and Mayor Gregor Robertson, her political foe, about where the city’s annual pot protest/excuse to fry your brain in public should be held."
The rest of the column goes off about the Mayor's public affair with a Chinese pop star. No wonder his foster son sells drugs. Yet the heart of the matter is the stark reality about how public perception towards stoners has change but not completely. The next day a couple of reader wrote into the paper stating: If we can’t drink in public, why do they allow pot smoking? Good question.
George Pearson from Surrey went on to say: "I’m sorry, but when did smoking pot become legal, especially in public? If it is not legal, why are thousands of marijuana allowed to have their smoke-ins in public places like in front of the art gallery in downtown Vancouver? I just don’t get it. If I were caught drinking alcohol in a public place to the point where I was intoxicated I would be arrested and placed in jail. Yet here we have thousands of potheads smoking up and having a grand time and creating a public nuisance without anyone raising a hand against such activity."
He raises a valid point which brings up to Gordon Clark's opening statement about how the 420 protest is simply an excuse to fry your brain in public. We need to remember that. 300 years ago, when I was a kid, we used to make fun of stoners. Now all of a sudden they are held up as activists. Something went wrong in the evolution of civilized society. We have devolved.
Now we have young kids that insist pot's good for you. Pot cures cancer. They get all agitated if you disagree with them and insist anyone who doesn't think smoking pot is good for you are stupid. Oh really. If we don't like frying our brain and getting stoned we are the ones who are stupid? I think not. Smoking anything is bad for you. That's why the leading cause of death in house fires is smoke inhalation.
When I was in highschool I had a friend who was a long distance runner. He didn't smoke pot because he knew smoking was bad for you and he didn't want it to adversely affect his running so he ingested it in food which is still problematic but is better for you than smoking it.
People argue that smoking pot is no worse for you than drinking alcohol. Which brings us back to the original question: if we aren't allowed to drink alcohol in public, why should we be allowed to get stoned in public? A very valid question.
Another reader from Burnaby wrote into the paper and said: "Get 4/20 off the streets. Gordon Clark’s column Thursday nailed it on all points, from narcissism to moonbeams to 4/20. Get the hempfest off the street. If they need a park, how about Crab Park?" I believe his sarcastic reference to Crab Park was the fact that it was recently in the news for being rezoned industrial. Yet his letter expressed his sentiment that the 420 crowd are rejects. People we should tolerate not hold up as role models. I agree. When I look at pictures of the protest all I see is a sea of losers strutting around like idiots. Bragging about frying their brains in public. Real smart buddy.
I agree smoking pot is a lot less harmful for you than smoking crack or crystal meth. I agree mandatory minimum sentences for smoking pot are stupid. We should have mandatory minimum sentences for selling not smoking crack. I acknowledge that Justin Trudeau was elected on the promise to legalize pot. Smoking pot in private is different than smoking pot in public. If we can't drink in public we shouldn't be able to smoke pot in public. A lot of people don't like second hand cigarette smoke. Second hand pot smoke is worse and those rejects just don't care about that.

Someone said Royce Gracie and Ken Shamrock are fighting tonight. Not a rerun but a new fight. That is awesome. These are two legends that put MMA on the map. Now they're old and still busting sh*t out. Live results.
Ken Shamrock was buff with a background in shootfighting and was one of the few guys in the beginning that could execute ankle locks. Royce Gracie was the one who put everything on the map. Taking a striker to the ground and choking him out from a million different angles. Royce wasn't that big but he was skillful and took out guys much bigger then him before they had weight classes. Mad harsh respect to them both.
Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro were in a movie called Grudge Match where two former boxing rivals finally go at it in their old age. It wasn't a five star move but it was well done. I liked it. Everything Stallone does is classy with a good moral. Rocky Balboa was awesome when he went up against a much younger kid in his prime. The young kid takes one look at Rocky and says it's over. Rocky says it ain't over until it's over. The kids scoffs and says what's that from the /80's? He pauses thinking for a second then embarrassed answers naw I think that's from the /70's. Stallone's most recent movie Creed is a classic. Hard to imagine he was born in 1946.
Deadpool is out. It was filmed here in Vancouver and has several Canadian jokes.

The Surrey Leader is reporting that "On Feb. 18 at approximately 5 a.m., Surrey RCMP responded to reports of gunshots being fired in the area of 143 Street and 109 Avenue. Numerous 911 calls had been received as well as a call from a male advising he had been shot. The victim, who had been riding in the taxi, attended hospital on his own and Surrey RCMP met him there and confirmed he had suffered a minor wound to the leg."
"Further investigation revealed that several gunshots had been fired at the cab, shattering the window and grazing the victim. The man was treated for his injuries and released from hospital. The taxi driver was not injured. The investigation is still in its early stages, but RCMP say this incident is likely targeted. Surrey RCMP's Major Crime Unit has conduct of the investigation."
The Chilliwack Times is reporting that "fifty criminal charges have been approved against five more Chilliwack men in connection with a local crime syndicate's drug trafficking activities in the north. And arrest warrants were issued this week for two men, Dana Mikael Hendrick Schaper-Kotter and Lucas Benjamin Thiessen."

Reuters is reporting that "two Los Angeles Police Department officers have been charged with repeated sexual assaults on four women while on duty in their squad car and elsewhere, prosecutors and police said on Wednesday." That is messed up.
Cops who commit rape and bikers who sell crack are BOTH bad. Which brings us back to the Dianne Rock story. Dianne Rock claimed she was gang raped on the Pickton farm. That would imply more than one suspect. Janice Edwards testified that she picked up her friend Dianne Rock hysterical from a gas station with visible injuries after she was gang raped.
Dianne Rock claimed she was gang raped by bikers and police. Just ask Bob Paulson. He didn't believe her and that's why she left police custody and ended up dead. Will there ever ben a real missing womans inquirey? I doubt it. Too many people have too much to hide and I'm not just talking about Jim Brown. The media reported that off duty police officers attended parties at Piggy's Palace. Wally Oppal shut down the Missing Women Inquiry and turned it into a panel discussion where he could more easily censor evidence. Consequently we never did find out which police officer attended parties at Piggy's Palace. In fact, we'll never know.
Update: CBC is reporting that "The RCMP is scrambling to contain the fallout from bungled internal investigations into allegations of unwanted sexual touching, bullying and rampant nudity in the workplace at the explosives training unit of the Canadian Police College in Ottawa."
"In 2012, after a long investigation, the RCMP public complaints commission found rampant bullying in the police force. It unearthed 718 complaints filed by employees between 2005 and 2011, and found almost half the complaints were from men."
"In February 2013, RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson vowed to take action in the face of growing public disgust with the conduct of some of his officers."
"Yet CBC News has spoken to four complainants, all former employees of the RCMP's explosives training unit, who maintain the information is not new at all. The men say they tried to share accounts of other disturbing behaviour at the school in 2014 and 2015, but RCMP investigators didn't want to hear it." So Bob Paulson is clearly full of sh*t.
Tell me again why the Main Stream Media hates the CBC and aren't running this story?

Global is reporting that a 59-year-old Celista man named Richard Allen Williams has been charged with attempted murder in connection with the triple shooting in the Shuswap town Sunday. The victim has died so it is now a murder investigation
Locals claimm Hells Angels associates are terrorizing these small communities whre there is little police presence. However, another source claims that both the primary shooter and one of the people shot were members of the Wanderers and that both were out in bad standing with the Rebels.
Rick was the former president of the Northshoresmen which was disbanded by the Hells Angels in 2012 after they patched over to Kingpin Crew. They were disbanded after the Britney Irving murder. Rick has been labeled N.G. Tragically one of the people shot was Darin Krawat.
Update. It appears that Rick didn't shoot Darin, he drove him to the hospital. Two commenters claim that Rick and Darin tried to rob one of Rick's neighbours but panicked and left when they saw a woman was home with her kids. The husband later brought some friends and confronted them. A struggle broke out where the husband was shot in the neck and Darin was shot and later died of his injuries. Very sad all way round.
The CSO database is reporting that convicted woman beater Donnie McWhirter and his rock throwing co accused are back in court on their trafficking crystal meth charges 9:30 AM February 18th in Kelowna. Watch for it. Blaze is still with the Independent Soldiers who are a puppet club for the Hells Angels just like his pal Joey Verma was.
Joey was convicted of murdering Brittney Irving. She was shot in the back several times with a shotgun slug. During the trial the court was told Joey tried to make an older man he used to hunt with take the fall for him. Joey said I can't go to jail right now. I'm making too much money in the drug trade. You have to take the fall for me. When Joey said he was going to tell him how it was done to make it believable the man said he didn't want to know.
The judge cleared the jury from the court and said while he was in jail waiting for trial Joey was still trafficking drugs from prison. She was surprised at the quantity of drugs that changed hands and claimed Joey was a high level drug dealer. Since he was with the Independent Soldiers from the get go, we all know who he was selling drugs for. Joey was a Hells Angels associate.
During the trial the court was told Joey said he had to kill her and that he didn't have a choice. He killed her to have his own manufactured drug debt forgiven. Britney was not a rat. That was a lie. When her clone show was busted she was desperate to make some money so they could live. She was not a junkie as Joey and Blaze claims. She sold pot to pay for her oxy habit.
Joey was promised the position of Vice President in the Kingin Crew for her murder. While in prison he was recruiting for the KPC and got a tattoo that said VP. When that information went public, the KPC were disbanded. Joey's promise was never fulfilled. I saw a copy of a letter Joey wrote to Blaze in prison about the Omerta claiming he was serving time for someone else and all the promises made to him had been unfulfilled. Which brings us back to Blaze.
Blaze has a big mouth and the mentality of a child. He bragged about the fact that he lied about his whereabouts the night Britney was killed. He wasn't out of town like his sister claimed. He was in town. Gas receipts proved it. Someone pretending to be Blaze claimed he was with Joey when "they" killed Britney to make sure he got the job done. Joey didn't really want to do it. The court was told he was in a relationship with her and was paying for her and her brother's hotel when their clone show got busted. Although unsubstantiated, that claim passes the test of believability.
Update: There is now a publication ban on the trial. For trafficking crystal meth? More proof the BC courts are completely corrupt.

The Edmonton Sun is reporting that a Hells Angels member swept up in a 2014 police raid is facing new charges after a six-month police probe that also netted two-kilograms of cocaine. Global is reporting that Dominic DiPalma Jr. was arrested Feb. 10 at a southeast home, where police say they also found nearly two kilograms of cocaine. DiPalma was charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking, two counts of drug possession, and breach of recognizance.
Dominic is the small guy on the left in the top photo. He left Edmonton to help with the Kelowna chapter in 2012 but returned to Edmonton after the Kelowna Summer Jam bust when the chapter was charged in a huge stolen car and drug ring. Sean Jackson (fat mike ) who started the Whiteboy Posse in 2003 was an associate of Dominic DiPalma Jr.The Whteboy Poose sold drugs for the Edmonton Hells Angels and decapitated Bob Roth for a drug debt. Full patch Edmonton Hells Angel Blake Christie was arrested along with Dominic DiPalma for numerous drug and weapon offenses April 2014. Last summer Blake Christie was found dead.

The Surrey Now is reporting that "Surrey's time-honored Auxiliary Constable program is experiencing turmoil following a national RCMP directive on January 27 prohibiting the volunteer cops from participating in ride-alongs with regular, armed Mounties."
This new restriction is a concern. "Some volunteers join the program hoping to become a regular paid cop and saw the ride-alongs as good practical training to that end, Bayda noted." Indeed. On the job experience is good. A volunteer program is good. It helps balance the budget. "Bonnie Mellor, honored in 2011 as Surrey RCMP's Auxiliary Constable of the Year, recently wrote a scathing letter to the editor charging the program has been reduced to shreds. 'Why would Surrey prefer to pay thousands of dollars in overtime,' she wrote, 'as opposed to having volunteers at events and doing patrols to keep our neighborhood safe?'" Bonnie is absolutely right.
"In 2015 Surrey's auxiliaries volunteered more than 20,000 hours of their time. Surrey RCMP - Canada's largest detachment - has 80 auxiliary constables, making it the largest contingent of roughly 1,500 auxiliaries across the nation. More than 700 are in B.C. The volunteer officers are equipped with a baton, pepper spray and a flashlight, but no gun."
"The new changes are a federal, not a local, directive resulting from the conclusions of a year-long policy review following the fatal Jan. 17, 2015 shooting of RCMP Constable David Wynn at Apex Casino outside Edmonton, Alberta." That single event had nothing to do with Auxiliary police. In a traffic stop, having an auxiliary officer in the car to radio for help if something goes wrong increases the officer's safety. Likewise, if an auxiliary officer was in the car to radio for backup in the Alberta tragedy, that situation might have been handled more effectively. More on the job training mght have saved Hudson Brook's life in Whiterock who was shot dead by a rookie cop while running to the police for help from people trying to kill him.
The news article quotes some nonsense from the idiot of the year, Bill Fordy. Obviously this directive isn't his fault as it comes from Ottawa but he is fulfilling his mandate of being a puppet without a brain. I'm not saying Fordy should publically speak out against it and discredit his superiors. I'm saying he should be doing what he can behind the scenes to reverse the decision. But he's not. He's not paid to think. He's paid to be a puppet. That's why they have someone more interested in sending sex texts and shagging coworkers then in doing his job. He does what he's told and nothing gets done. That's the master plan.
Before Bill Fordy there was someone really competent in charge of E Division. I met him at Surrey central. They had a huge display of police and auxiliary on quads along with a mobile command centre. It was impressive. The quads were for park patrols in the downtown core when crack heads flee police on foot.
While speaking with the officer he noticed some kids, excused himself and spoke with the kids before returning to our conversation. He said, sorry, those kids were from the UN and they know they aren't suposed to be here. I was surprised because they just looked like a couple of Surrey kids selling pot. It was also very proactive he knew who they are and was on top of things. That's called crime prevention. Something Bill Fordy has no clue about. Thus the Newton problem.
Bob Paulson came highly recommended. I was told he was one of the good guys. Then I find out he was with Bill Fordy and Craig Callen on a "fishing trip" at Pitt Lake. My response was, if Bob Paulson was a good guy then what the hell is he doing hanging out with Bill Fordy and Craig Callen? Was he really just another FOCCer? (Friends of Craig Callen) That's what it looked like.
The Surrey Now also reported on another great volunteer program in Surrey involving the Crime Prevention society. This is a good program. They help reduce car theft in Guildford and Surrey Place Mall. The effectiveness of that program is put into question when the police adapt the policy of letting crack delaers sell crack in Newton and refuse to arrest them. The volunteers could help identify the crack dealers for the police to arrest but they don't because they police won't arrest the crack dealers even if the businesses complaining about them refusing to leave outside their business. That policy is bad business and is the root of the problem.
Rememeber the Vancovuer 2010 Winter Olympics? That huge success was made possible due to the hard work and dedication of an army of volunteers knowns as smurfs. It wasn't a derogatory nickname. It was just because they wore light blue jackets. They were friendly, positive, polite and persistent. Their positive zeal permeated the event. Likewise, volunteers in community policing is more than just saving money. It helps the police see there are a lot of good people out there that care about their community. It is important for the police to see that when they interact with bad guys all day.

Scan BC is reporting that #Surrey #RCMP are responding to 144 & 84 for reports of two vehicles shooting at each other. Road littered in casings.
Update: The Peace Arch News is reporting that Surrey RCMP are investigating after two men showed up at the hospital Saturday night suffering from gunshot wounds.

When I was young I studied the martial art and became interested in some of the eastern philosophies that went along with it. The purpose of the martial arts was to preserve and protect not to control and dominate. I was intrigued by Confucius, Taoism and with Zen.
Zen can be applied to anything - Buddhism, Christianity, Physics, Archery, even the game of Tennis. When I started riding motorcycles I enjoyed a book called Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance. All religions have the golden rule: treat others the way you want to be treated. It's pretty basic. If everyone lived by that principle this world would be a better place. The Dali Lama once said all the teachings of Buddha can be distilled into two sentences: "If you can, help others. If you can't do that, at least do no harm to them."
Zen talks about enlightenment or nirvana. An enlightened sage does not covet or hoard material possessions and they most certainly don't oppress the homeless to obtain them. In my studies I came across a story about a chinese painting of heaven and hell.
In Hell everyone was sitting at a large banquet table full of food.Yet everyone was in torment. The only way to eat the food was with chopsticks longer than your arm. They had all this wonderful food in front of them but they were unable to eat it because they couldn't feed themselves. Heaven was the same table of food and the same eating utensils. The only difference is that everyone was happy. They were feeding each other.
The Langley Times is reporting that "Heavily-armed police officers raided a Langley City residence on Fraser Highway near 201 Street Tuesday afternoon. Members of the Emergency Response Team arrived around 4 p.m. in an armored truck. They blocked off the street and used a loudspeaker to tell occupants of a first-floor suite that the ERT was there to serve a search warrant, that the people inside were under arrest and for them to exit the premises. After about 20 minutes, the ERT stood down, apparently because no one was home. Members of the Langley RCMP remained at the scene. One source told The Times that the address appears to be the same location that was raided previously by police as part of a mail theft investigation."
Mail theft? When people see this kind of thing the first concern that comes to mind is police state.
Update: "Police said the ERT became involved because there was a tip that there could be weapons inside the suite. However, none were found."

A blog reader posted a link to this story in an old blog post so I decided to repost it here for everyone to see. The original story was about a Kamloops drug bust tied to the Hells Angels. Police found and seized 15 pounds of marijuana, 10 ounces of cocaine and 40 firearms. Now it appears that the drug charges have been thrown out because they were seized from a van that left the home and they can't prove they were in the posseion of the owners of the home.
Seemingly there was sophisticated surveillance cameras on site and the defense is trying to poke holes in the police's search of the home in hopes to have the firearm evidence thrown out. The main discrepancy appears to be over how long the police waited after knocking on the door before entering. They obtained a search warrant. That doesn't appear to be in question. The question is how long did the police wait. Pretty minor given the seriousness of what was found during the search. Did they obtain a warrant? Yes they did. One of the obvious concerns in waiting too long after knocking is that you give the residents of the home time to get their guns which would be somewhat of a safety concern for the police executing the search warrant.
Seemingly one the audio of the tape one cop joking said we should throw some of the ammunition in the fireplace. He was joking. Did he do it? No he did not. That comment is simply not relevant to the legality of the search.The interesting part is the fact that the primary suspect, Mr Hillbilly Bling, was eledge to be associated with a Prince George gang called the Crew and was dealing meth, cocaine and heroine at the kiko level. As we know, the Crew in Prince George is a puppet club for the Hells Angels. Police displayed Hells Angels stickers seized from the home when they displayed the evidence at the press conference.
OK so this guy does indeed look like a flaming idiot. That's why the Hells Angles chose him .A guy like that simply could not make it on his own. The only way he could import multi kilos of cocaine, meth and heroin is if the was doing it with the help and protection of the Hells Angels.Please note that in addition to 40 serious firearms and drugs being seized, police also seized thousands of dollars worth of stolen electronics. This once again fits the pattern we see being repeated across the country. Hells Angels drug dealers involved with stolen property. Who's the rat now? People who steal are rats not the people that report them to the police.

The Nova News is reporting that there has been another delay in Leslie Douglas Greenwood's new murder trial since one of his lawyers has withdrawn from the case. "Greenwood is charged with the first-degree murders of Barry Kirk Mersereau and Nancy Paula Christensen. The couple was shot to death in their Centre Burlington, Hants County home in September 2000. It’s alleged that the double murder was connected to the Hells Angels. Greenwood was convicted of the Centre Burlington murders following a three-week Supreme Court jury trial concluding in May 2012. The convictions were later overturned in September 2014 by the Court of Appeals. That decision stemmed from the use of hearsay evidence in the first trial.
The Chronicle Herald reported that Last month, Greenwood's trial for his role in two killings in a McDonald’s parking lot in 2010 ended in a mistrial. In this case, "Michael Lawrence and Curtis Blair Lynds — entered guilty pleas to killing Mersereau and Christensen, who were shot to death inside their Centre Burlington, Hants County, home. Lawrence also pleaded guilty to killing Charles Maddison, 75, and is serving life. Greenwood, who said in an interview that he started selling LSD at age 13, was a known associate of former Hells Angel Jeffrey Albert Lynds and was picked up — along with several others — after Lynds gave several statements to investigators in the spring of 2010. Those statements ended up leading to arrests in another two killings, including that of Randy Mersereau, Barry’s brother, who was gunned down earlier in 2000.
The Truro Daily reported that the Hells Angels ordered the killings as a payment for Greenwood and Michael Lawrence's drug debt. Jeff Lynds admitted to Randy's murder for the Hells Angels but was not charged for that offense. He is said to have committed suicide in prison. CBC reports that Lynds says he lured Mersereau to the home and claims he shot Mersereau five times with a hand gun provided by the Hells Angels who ordered the hit.
Randy Mersereau was a Hells Angel who sold drugs. He continued to sell drugs after he left the club so he was murdered along with his brother and his brother's wife. The three common elements of all these recent news stories are 1) the Hells Angels 2) Drug dealing and 3) Murder. The murder of rival drug dealers on occasion to forgive a drug debt. I.E. if you commit a murder for the Hells Angels you can have your drug debt forgiven as in the Britney Irving case.
ABC in Australia is reporting that "Officers from the anti-bikie taskforce allege they found a quantity of methylamphetamine, an automatic handgun and $158,000 in cash when they searched the rented Q1 apartment on Saturday. Police allege Samuel King is a patched member of the Hells Angels outlaw motorcycle club. He was charged with two counts each of possession of a dangerous drug, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of property used in the commission of a crime." The Gold Coast Bulletin posted a video of the search.

The Canadian Press is reporting that "an apparent overflow at a nuclear power plant north of New York City spilled highly radioactive water into an underground monitoring well, but nuclear regulators said the public isn't at risk." Of course they aren't. Radioactive waste is good for you. They're going to start putting it in our toothpaste and make us pay for it. Hydroelectric dams are much better than nuclear reactors. Fukushima is still leaking. Natural gas is better than coal.

"Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow creeps in this petty pace from day to day. Out out brief candle. Life is but a walking shadow. A poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot full of sound and fury signifying nothing."
Macbeth was wrong about life but he was sure right about Daryl MacAskill. That idiot doesn't even know the difference between a Mormon and a Jehovah's Witness which simply proves he doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground. No child, church, friend or associate is responsible for anything I say or do. I am solely responsibly for what I post.
I've been kicked out of many schools and churches over the years but I have never been kicked out of the Guardian Angels or any pub for that matter. That's because I'm not an angry drunk. In fact I don't get drunk. I don't even smoke that sh*t any more. I grew up. Many others didn't.
As for Daryl son of an ass kill, Behold we shall end the conflict.

The Goldstream Gazette is reporting that A 22-year-old man remains in custody after West Shore RCMP officers seized half a kilo of cocaine from a residence on Lynburne Place in Langford Wednesday evening. CFAX is reporting that the search warrant was obtained after a traffic stop.

The Vancouver Province is reporting that the Hells Angels have lost another bid to take back their Nanaimo clubhouse, which was temporarily seized by the B.C. government eight years ago. As long as the case doesn't go in front of Ron Skolrood we should be OK.
The Vancouver Province is reporting that a B.C. man who is now a member of the Nomads chapter of the Ontario Hells Angels has been arrested in Vancouver. Damion Ryan was out on bail on drug and weapons charges filed in the Ottawa area when he was picked up by Vancouver police on Jan. 29. His parole violations were drinking and using a cell phone. Pretty minor offenses. However, this is a member of the Hells Angels who was arrested on drug and firearm charges and is an associate of Dean Wiwchar, who’s a suspect in the 2012 Duhre murder..
Dean Wiwchar was also charged with drug trafficking along with another Hells Angels associate named Rabih Alkhalil. Rabih Alkhalil is Dean Wiwchar's co accused in the murder of Johnnie Raposo in Toronto and in the Sheraton Wall Centre murder of Sandip Duhre in Vancouver. Nic Nero is another drug dealing Hells Angels associate Dean and Rabih are accused of contracting in the Johnnie Raposo murder. Philip Juan Ley pleaded guilty to firearm charges in another case that involved Dean Wiwchar
Damion Ryan’s name surfaced last year in a B.C. Supreme Court ruling in a gun case involving his associate Dean Wiwchar. Ryan accompanied Wiwchar and his co-accused Philip Juan Ley, to Mexico on April 18, 2012. Drug dealers murdering rival drug dealers. There is nothing innocent about that. Damion Ryan was wounded in a gangland shooting at an Oak Street restaurant in Vancouver on Dec. 12, 2010.
Good luck. The Vancouver Province is reporting that the judge in the B.C. legislature terror plot trial criticized CSIS on Tuesday for failing to comply with a court order. CSIS lawyer Donnaree Nygard told the judge she had no further information to provide as to why CSIS has yet to obey the order. I'l tell you what they are waiting for. They haven't destroyed all the evidence yet like they did in the Air India trial. CSIS is in contempt of court. Again.
Saturday night an old friend asked me to help him take some youth into the DTES to hand out blankets and clothes to the homeless. We used to do it quite regularly but I haven't gone for years. I just get so frustrated with the futility of it all. All this talk is worthless as long as we hand out free crack pipes, promote unsafe injection sites and let drug dealers sell crack and everything else under the sun all around them. We are enabling such sorrow it drives me insane.
Every year there are more and more homeless on the street. This year I was amazed at the number of women suffering in the DTES. Not crack hoes, just regular women living in cars with a child. We were set up at Pigeon corner and I sensed many women uncomfortable around the male leaders so I stepped back and let some of our female leaders take over. The compassion, the hugs and the genuine concerns was refreshing to see. They spoke of the fear and violence they are subjected to there. This is why I am so ashamed we closed the police station behind Main and Hastings to public access. They have no safe place to go when stalkers are harassing them. Suppressing crime statistics like that is an abomination. Things in the DTES have changed. They don't take care of their own any more. It is time to bring back project old timer.
