The BCGEU May Not Only Be Full Of Shit…

Did the BCGEU do this?

Did the BCGEU put a new meaning to the concept of the flying squad on Thursday?

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. Having lived in London & Amsterdam where they have been successfully doing this for years, I can see the benefits of the concept. That said, after a personal experience, I am far from impressed with INSITE- and services in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side (DTES) are a comparatively a gong show…

Why ‘Safe Space’ Politics Should Scare You…

The first incident of violence at Occupy Vancouver came long before a juvenile kid in the Black Bloc hit a cop in the face with a flagpole, and long before an occupier bit a fireman and another stole a cop’s ammunition during the ‘sacred’ fire incident. It was a seemingly unexpected event that happened at the end of a General Assembly (GA) that was dedicated to discussing how we’d make Occupy Vancouver a ‘Safe Space’.

Open Letter To Irwin Oostinde About Homophobia, Charitable Status & Mental Health Stigmatization!

Is this man a hypocrite?

I got some rather unsavoury hate-mail from Irwin Oostinde’s W2 Media Centre today- and I think it says a lot about his organization. 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…

A Great Video About George Soros… (Let’s start a debate!)

This video gives a great understanding of who Soros is and what he does. Pay special attention to the word ‘globalizing’. Also pay attention to the part discussing Soros’ support of Islamic causes…

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….

Occupy Toronto And The DTES FauxHawk’s Sacred Fire! (Featuring Harsha Walia & David Eby!)

Can You Recognize This Man? (don’t worry, he’ll be unmasked in a moment)

One of my more memorable moments at Occupy Vancouver was the day when two indigenous men from Vancouver’s Downtown East Side (DTES) lit a ‘sacred’ fire in the middle of our camp. I didn’t know it at the time, but both these men had a long history working with Harsha Walia & No One Is Illegal. I wrote one of my earliest stories on this incident- labelling it a sacred provocation

Overcoming The Delphi Technique: A Must See Video For Occupiers!

Yes, it is long, and yes this woman does sound like a reactionary conservative- but, after watching this video, I can’t recommend it enough to Occupiers, and other people who feel they are being manipulated by the Delphi Technique. Make sure you share this with other Occupiers and work together as a team. Together, united, we’ll never be defeated!

Occupy Toronto & Vancouver Tendencies Are Full Of Bolshevik! (Featuring Brandon Gray)

Brandon Gray Practicing PR Destruction for Occupy Toronto…

The deeper I dig into the Canadian Occupy movement, the more fascinating its cast of characters becomes. In this case, I found Brandon Gray’s (not his real last name) resignation letter from the International Bolshevik Tendency (IBT). Brandon is one of the more radical occupiers who chained himself to the Yurt (that was taken back by OPSEU even though it was a gift) on the last day of Occupy Toronto and forced the police to use bolt-cutters to release and then arrest him.

What Did Harsha Wallia Do? (WDHWD)

This is my favourite question to ask Harsha’s defenders. Still haven’t got a valid answer on that. I’m sure she has accomplished something in her career as an activist- but it boggles the mind how people supporting her, when put on the spot, can’t come up with anything! Not even Macdonald Stainsby could do it!

Why Do I Hate The Left?

Since I began writing about the Occupy movement, the most common question I’ve been asked by my detractors has been “Why do you hate the left?” Not only is this question a veiled ad-hominem attack- but it is also incredibly presumptuous on a number of levels…

An Open Letter To Occupy Vancouver

Starhawk teaching us to love each other at the back door of the VAG

Dear Occupy Vancouver,

Remember the first couple of weeks we were together at the VAG? Those days were beautiful, weren’t they? All of the smiles, love and group hugs made living outside in tents worthwhile- didn’t they?

Occupy Vancouver Gone Wild!

Here is the video of Richard Porteous making a blatantly slanderous attack on the character of a man who has asked too many questions about Occupy Vancouver’s Finance Committee. More details in my previous article: Occupy Vancouver Has An Asshole Problem

Occupy Vancouver Has An Asshole Problem! (so do the Council of Canadians & Van Media Co-Op)

Bob Ages of the Council of Canadians (also known as Mr Taco!)

NOTE: The title of this article is based on an article that was quite popular during the early days of Occupy Vancouver: Occupy’s Asshole Problem

I’ve written about this issue before. Bob Ages of the Council of Canadians has been involved in vicious character attacks after Ben Pearson, a member of Occupy Vancouver, started asking questions about the Finance Committee. Then I published a video showing how a gang of people (including Irwin Oostinde of the W2 Media Center) mobbed Ben to refuse his entry to a GA.

This situation has truly one of Occupy Vancouver’s lowest moments…

How To Start A Fake Revolution!

The parallels in this theory with what has happened inside the Occupy movement are unnerving. But you know what is more unnerving? Having a look at the logos used by OPTOR in some of their colour revolutions!

Naomi Klein Fights For The Needs Of Vancouver’s DTES Drug Dealers & Poverty Pimps!

Naomi Klein speaking beside Harsha Walia at the rally

One of the more interesting events I attended in Vancouver was the Occupy Condos event led by Harsha Walia. I have, for months, been quite confused by this event. It was only recently what it has begun to make sense to me…
