Sorry to hear about those break ins. You're right, lack of direction, not much -good- employment opportunities and then you factor in those kids were neglected and/or grew up in fatherless households and the result is that juvenile behavior. I would suggest you go high tech with smart locks, surveillance cams, possibly an alarm as well. At the very least you will have video evidence of the crooks, alternatively if it keeps occuring over time you could sell the property and move into the 'Burbs of Westview, where that foul behavior isn't tolerated quite as much. -J
Yep, love my 50" LED HDTV (soon to be obsolete by 4K, though hah). Callum, if you think your digital atennae is the tits, look into a set top box that can run the Kodi app, it will be a real 'atennae smasher' (in the ilk of a cable cutter). And yes, self checkouts are awesome, I love breezing by a retail worker who has an empty queue, cause that person was usually cold or grumpy to me many times, and going to the self check out and being my own cashier. Love it. I only wish MORE stores locally offered self checkout, in fact all major chain stores should. -J
I agree that more needs to be made available over the counter. I also agree that on the one hand the Gov allows the sale of alcohol and tobacco (two known killers), they seem to safeguard many other things that are not even as damaging. However, certain drugs like mixed amphetamine salts, opiates, anti axiety medications should not be freely avaible like a candy shop. Too much risk, and although I like to think adults can choose which substances they abuse, the illnesses/deaths related to abuse of said substances affects us as a whole on many different levels. -J
Viva BC Ferries. People need to save our service!
I think people's beef with the BC ferries is the high cost, even on decent incomes frequent trips can add up, and the ferry system is considered part of the highway. People like to take trips to procure wares and they are unhappy with the cost, or people just wanting to get away camping or a mini vacation. Liked your bit about the "Old PR", I've been here since the 80s and yes it's changed a lot, and you're absolutely right about the economic downturn. The Complex, Mill, mall, storefronts on marine and some derelict buildings are what's left of the old days.
I am happy to see the web page up and flourishing again! Keep speaking the truth!
