Pain BC recently received a $1 Million grant from the Ministry of Health to continue our work in reducing the burden of pain in BC. We are embarking on the next phase of our Strategic Plan and need your input and ideas:
What are the gaps in the BC Health Care system as they relate to chronic pain?
Where are the areas of greatest need?
How can you get involved in changing pain in BC?
Our guest is Maria Hudspith, Executive Director of Pain BC, who will explain the background to Pain BC's work, what we've accomplished since 2008, and our tentative plans going forward. We'll also be taking your calls and seeking your input. Please call in so that as many voices as possible can be heard on this important issue.

The 2013-2014 academic calendar is winding down, and sports in the Boston College landscape are finally saying farewell to a memorable year. From the resurgence of the football program to the run to glory for the hockey program to the meteoric drop of the basketball program, there's been plenty to talk about and there's been plenty to argue about.
But as Boston College prepares to graduate its class of 2014, we take the opportunity to look back at where this year's impact can be felt the most - off the field. Championships, winning seasons, bowl berths, and new coaches might be great to talk about, but why are we talking about them? How has this year been in terms of marketing and business, and how strong is the BC brand as it gets set to take a hiatus for the summer months?
Michael Sheehan drops by to analyze the Boston College brand with the first ever BCI Business Report. With Brad Bates' first full year at the helm squarely in the books, we look at the successes, the failures, and the road ahead. What opportunities still exist for advancement, and what can we do as fans to help advance the brand from our point of view?
Dial in at 646-200-0446 and weigh in with your thoughts about Bates and the athletic department's overall approach to 2013-2014!
-The biggest issue going so far - Steve Donahue's firing and how the heck it took so long to get here. CoachJF joins in the show for his first appearance in some time, and we'll talk about what led BC to get to this point. We'll talk about the decision making process in the firing, and we'll talk about the next steps for BC.
-Earlier this year, we talked about potential candidates for the spot. But ultimately, we'll need to talk about what needs to happen for BC to get back on the right track and how long it'll take.
-We'll also talk about the last week and what it presents for BC. Yes, the Eagles reportedly fired their coach, but after a week of stories and inaction by the athletic department, what does that display?
-After what happened during football season, Brad Bates and the BC athletic department built up substantial amounts of goodwill. The last week was indicative, though, of some cracks within the last week as it took the Eagles a long time to fire Donahue. It manifested itself with social media exploding in a fit of anger. Here's your chance to weigh in on BC's procedures this week, and more importantly, here's your chance to voice how things should go for BC athletics moving forward.
It's the most wonderful time of the year - tourney time! Boston College is "remaining home" for the NCAA Tournament as the #1 seed in the Northeast Regional for men's ice hockey. They'll be playing this weekend in the first round of a bracket featuring three conference champions: Hockey East #2 seed and tournament champion UMass-Lowell, WCHA Champ Minnesota State, and NCHC champ Denver (the Eagles' first round opponent).
We'll break down the matchup between Boston College and Denver, as well as the River Hawks and Mavericks, as we get set for the puck drop at the DCU Center. The hockey boys are on tap, so get ready and be sure to call in and talk BC hockey!
We'll also have updates from the men's basketball head coaching search for you, and we'll once again take your calls as we gear up to head to the spring season!
WANTED - 44 Snake Oil Sales Agents to Pass the BC Budget
By Sal Vetro
One less non-compliant MLA and the BC Budget, in a non-confidence vote is defeated.
This latest BC Budget could have provided an extra few dollars to people with disabilities, seniors and autistic children. But, all we got were false promises and a pie in the sky prosperity fund anticipated revenues sometime in 2020. Instead, we have wasted taxpayer dollars being spent on a 15-million-dollar BC Liberal propaganda campaign, and a 12-million-dollar Bollywood festival, which has no track record of success. All to buy Indo-Canadian votes in the looming provincial election. Is this a wise expenditure of taxpayer dollars? I think not.
Our party, BC First, has a responsibility and a mandate to inform British Columbians of an incompetent, mismanaged, out-of-control government with no transparency or accountability to taxpayers. I don’t think the taxpayers will fall for the same old line, which goes, “Just trust us and accept what we tell you as the truth.”
To ‘Have Your Say’ about the new BC Budget, tune into the ‘BC Politics Blog Talk Radio Show this Wednesday, February 20th from 7-9:00pm. This week’s special guest will be BC First’s resident economic advisor, Erik Andersen. Andersen, now retired, will break down and explain what the budget means to BC’s working class and their families. I’m thinking we’re looking at higher taxes and more fees. What do you think? Call in and let us know.
THIS WEEK’S SPECIAL GUEST Erik Andersen, Retired Economist
Topic: BC Budget
The authors that we are featuring today are: Ben Carson, author of "One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America's Future"; Stephan Labossiere, author of "God Where is My Boaz?"; and Sarah A. Gbadebo, author of "Fearless and Free To Be"
The purpose of this show is to highlight wholesome Christian books, promote them to our audience, encourage you to buy these books for yourself and for others, and most importantly, to see people come to Christ and lives changed for the glory of God.
MUSICAL SELECTION: "All About You" by Anita Wilson, "God is On Our Side" by Andrae Crouch, and "Something Out of Nothing" by Jessica Reedy

The show offers BC citizens an opportunity to speak their minds, and talk about the issues concerning them, no matter what their political affiliation, or lack thereof.

You can also email your questions and comments to the show: email@example.com . Your email may be read on air during the show.
The show’s host is Sal Vetro, our very own Party leader. Vetro feels that the people are not being listened to by other parties and decided to change that by giving people a voice, a place to be heard, listened to and to talk about the very issues that affect all families, right across British Columbia.
THIS WEEK’S SPECIAL GUEST Vaughan Lyon, Professor Emeritus, Trent University, Political Science Free for all discussion on any and all issues facing British Columbians today.
