I gotta say, my safe haven, Pt. Bob is such a safe place. But, since this shitshow started a couple years ago, people from all over the US moved here as it was documented many times as the "safest place in the US". In 23 years, there has not been one gun incident that I am aware of. I have heard a few shot off in the woods near where I live. People leave their houses open and keys in the car. Anyways, a new angry dude shows up and is poaching fallen trees for firewood on private property and then goes to the golf course to harvest some, and because he is a world class asswipe, he gets into an argument with the grounds keeper manager who has been here forever and has single-handedly kept the course alive through all this. The dude takes off with the wood. And so later, golf guy goes to his house and confronts him - Point Roberts style (name calling first, then the threat of a shot to the head, and finally if it isn't solved, a good old fashioned fight). Angryman lifts his shirt to show his concealed gun, which I now have learned he carries everywhere, all the time. This dude gives my wife the 3-alarm creeps and has pissed many, many people off down here. So, how do you get a gun out of the hands of an angry man? Trust me, Canada rocks, even though in the last 2 decades, many guns have shown up, but still the masses do not have guns. On this one alone, never mind all the rest, Canada faking' rocks.

The Illinois shooter tried to commit suicide a couple years ago. Officials treated it as mental illness case. Last year he threatened to kill his family. Then he was able to buy 5 guns, legally.
Glad I live in Canada.

That's the place for some real compromise between the 2A crowd and the anti-gun crowd. Background checks are totally appropriate as it putting someone on the do not sell list if there is a legitimate public safety reason for doing so. The 2A crowd needs to figure out that they lost a ton of credibility when they fight that - and some of them do...

Mainstream media don't want to cover stories from enviro groups unless they do something dramatic like blocking highways. On Monday 3 local enviro groups put out a press release about Trans Mountain destroying a sensitive wetland near Bridal Veil Falls but no coverage on TV, radio or print. Story is doing well on social media.

Right, the mainstream media underreports on the "climate crisis". The eco warriors don't take up enough bandwith. That's the problem, not runaway inflation and a looming recession. Got it.

I apologize for not being clearer to everyone. I should have written better press releases then maybe it would have gotten coverage. I should have made a better petition to save wetland. I should have submitted a better complaint to the Canada Energy Regulator (CER) so it would not have been rejected. Finally, I should have ensured that the formal notice of motion submitted to the CER was better documented.
