Season 8 of The View Up Here kicks off with a British Columbia Roundup with two returning guests - Grant G of The Straight Goods http://powellriverpersuader.blogspot.ca/ and Bob Mackin of The Breaker http://thebreaker.news/
The Sad - We offer tribute to two of BC's most loyal citizens that have recently passed away. Merv Adey described himself as just another citizen but his work holding government and corporate media to account made that claim rather humble. A two time guest, he began the BC Series on TVUH. Rafe Mair is regarded as a legend having left his mark in government, radio, environmental awareness, written content and mentorship. Both will be missed going forward and we shall thank them for their work
The Crazy - As more facts about Site C come out, the less sense the project makes. Missed milestones, shoddy contracting, bankruptcies, budget overruns, environmental disregard, false statements and governmental interference exposed. Can this monstrosity still proceed?
The New - Campaign Finance Reform sounds like two different issues depending on who is speaking. Throw in a referendum on Proportional Representation and let the fireworks commence.
The Drab - The BC Liberal leadership race is proving to be Shakespearean from day one. Eight candidates, now seven, are doing their best to speak of change while demonstrating none whatsoever. At least they all agree there is nothing liberal about the party. This is progress?
The Fab - Marijuana legalization is coming. Provincial plans across the country on distribution, retail sales and regulation have varied a great deal. Some praised, some acceptable, some decried. Nowhere will this be more difficult than in BC. What's the plan?
