An Open Letter To Thomas Mulcair

Thomas Mulcair- let’s hope he’s a lover and not a street fighter…

Dear Mr. Mulcair,

You have a big problem on your hands, as does the rest of the country. True, every political party has its loonies- but, the NDP’s crazies are a danger to our country…

How Do You Double DTES Rental Profits? Rent Your Space To INSITE/ONSITE!

INSITE/ONSITE Clinic In Vancouver

I’ll start this article with a disclosure. First, I am 110% behind the concept of supervised injections sights.

Yes, it did address some of the questions I asked in my article about W2. That said, it raised a whole lot more of them. Have a look at what they had to say- my letter to Irwin comes after the screenshot…

Does Irwin Oostinde Run S&M Sex Parties At The W2 Media Centre? (Kid’s Camps Too!)

Irwin Oostinde, helping the poor, or helping himself?

One of the more interesting things about the W2 Media Centre is the imbalance between events focussed on media, and the number of parties and social events.  Have a look at this screenshot from the events calendar on their website: Continue reading

Harsha Walia’s Gonna Get It! (Bob Ages Too!)

Ben Pearson (in one of the best Occupy Vancouver pictures ever!)

UPDATE: This article includes some inaccuracies, please refer to the comments section for updated information

I’ve written about this issue a few times now, and posted the (very popular) video of Occupy Vancouver Gone Wild! It all started after Ben Pearson began to ask questions about OV finances. Ben’s a brave man, and I commend his tenacity in keeping-up the good fight here….
