Invitation 3

Is #metoo a threat to civilized society? While I don’t do this very often I find myself doing it again this month. I am inviting you to join a ZOOM conversation on Tuesday morning (June 1st) at 8:55 a.m. PDT [which is 9:55 a.m. MDT, 11:55 a.m. EDT & 12:55 ADT]. This week our modest […]

Mother’s Day and other random thoughts…or maybe better worded as odds, sods, and other miscreant behaviours… Since the conversation with Chief Louis I have been somewhat derailed in my efforts to get the politicos talking about his ideas – but that will happen… The delays have been Dickensian – to abrogate a thought or two… […]

Before I forget… Here are a few more excerpts from a forthcoming book by Chief Clarence Louie of the Osoyoos Indian Band. He shared this with us following a very productive ZOOM Conference we held a few weeks ago. These thoughts are primarily about Native Sports Logos & Life and they relate to a motto […]

A different day: A new approach to Reconciliation… A fortunate moment came my way on Monday morning. As part of my activities moderating different ZOOM conversations, I was fortunate to have as a guest, Chief Clarence Louie of the Osoyoos Indian Band (OIB). The Chief is an exceptional person in many ways but foremost he […]

INVITATION to Converse

The Epistle of Q — Chapter 147

Trouble is brewing…and maybe you have missed the signs… Well firsts of all, enough of political commentary for the moment. Whether I will come back and discuss the recent Liberal and NDP conventions is still a question for me. I didn’t attend either and the coverage and related editorial comments probably have given you sufficient […]

News Flash II

Alas it’s hard to believe but here it’s Wednesday and I’m sitting in my study. Why? Well to put it sadly, skiing is now over for the 2020/2021 season and it is time to give the summary of results… While the actual awards ceremony will be in later this spring (and will not likely be […]

The Epistle of Q — Chapter 146 (c)

There’s more After the Convention… Okay, some have suggested that I should actually provide more than a single issue for the next federal election campaign.
