If it isn't in the mail now, you can still deliver it yourself - BC's HST referendum

Location Beauty BC, Eh Canada See map: Google Maps For those of you living outside of BC or under a rock in BC, today is the deadline when the referendum votes on the Harmonized Sales Tax must be in the designated offices of Elections BC.

August Long Weekend...what is it called in your neighborhood?

Location Victoria, BC Canada See map: Google Maps Tomorrow is the August long weekend, or at least a long weekend in BC. Our provincial government stretched itself to the limits of creativity in coming up with a name for this one, BC Day. Prior to that it was called Civic Holiday...or something equally as scintillating.

2011 Election: did we make history or guarantee more of the Conservative same?

Here in BC we elected the first Green party member ever to Parliament (and I'm pretty sure there aren't any at the provincial level across the country but I could be wrong on that one). Also, for the first time in history the NDP now sits directly across from the government and Jack is moving into Stornoway, official residence of the leader of Her Majesty's loyal Opposition. ...more
