A stop gap, July 2017

A Stop Gap is a method that is used to prevent something from happening. It starts as a short-term situation and it can then lead to a longer term situation. The idea of a Stop Gap is to prevent something unwanted to occur. It is often used in business communications.

My Nightmare, July 20th 2017

This morning from 900 am to 11 am I had a nightmare after twisting and turning all night last night. In my nightmare I was a passenger on a large jetliner. I was seated about half way down from the front of the aircraft with a window seat. I looked out of the window and could see all kinds of other aircraft crashing into the ground and going on fire. Each side of the aircraft had a set of little oval shaped airliner windows and on each side I could see multiple airliners crashing into the ground and turning into flames caused by the crash. I told the other passengers on the aircraft, “there is something wrong with the pilot flying this aircraft, we are all about to die. Look outside the window and see all the other planes crashing and burning.” None of the other passengers reacted and in fact they stayed seated in their seats and were in a complete denial of the fact that our aircraft had descended to just above ground-level and the left wing of the aircraft was scraping the side of a building and creating sparks of flames from the impact. All the passengers, except me was non-reactive to this emergency. It seemed like I was the only one aware of the potential fatal impact our aircraft was about to have and all the other passengers were sitting in their seats not reacting and in a comatose state.

I then found myself looking for the black box. I went into the belly of the aircraft well under the passengers and I found a black square unit. All of a sudden there was another female adult helping me; and a very large muscular man of African American heritage walked closer and closer to me and the other lady. I remember feeling unsure if this man was going to help or harm us. He ended up helping us by jumping down into the black square unit and he started to fish out wet childrens’ clothes and throwing them on the platform me and the unknown female were standing on. Then somehow, I was in the black square unit and I started to pull the cover off of the ground-floor and there was the fast moving ground underneath me. The velocity of the aircraft was way too fast to be able to jump out of the aircraft and live.

Then I awoke from my nightmare. (Images: Generation X)

Montreal Code 2017

I was born in the St. Mary’s Hospital in Montreal Quebec Canada. A Roman Catholic Hospital. I am Roman Catholic. An unconventional Roman Catholic, but Roman Catholic just the same.

When the British Columbia elections were underway I voted for the party that would be kind to the poor people in my city of Victoria.

Last Thursday, June 29th, 2017  – the BC Liberals received a no-confidence vote from the BC NDP / BC Green party, something that had not happened in the last 65 years of Canadian politics. This single act of the no-confidence vote (also know as the non-confidence vote) is what I find baffling.

Why is it that that BC Liberals, the BC Greens and the BC NDP could not work together – when the leader of the BC Liberal party, Christy Clark announced the previous Thursday in the Throne Speech that she had

[1] changed,

[2] listened to the needs of the BC citizens and

[3] was going to re-adjust her platform to include 2.3 billion dollars in a plan to help to reduce poverty – which all three parties wanted.

To me, the alternative to a 2 party BC government (BC NDP and BC Greens) is a three party government BC government or rather a Coalition BC Government which combines the skill sets and expertise of all three (3) parties to create the best plan for all the BC Citizens.

Seeing I was born in Montreal, I am calling this idea the Montreal Code: which means a three (3) party Coalition BC Government for the best interest of all the BC provinces citizens.

Decentralize.

BC NDP / BC Green place no-confidence vote against BC Liberals, last Thursday.

I am a British Columbia citizen and I live in Fernwood, a community inside Victoria City. My opinion is coming from my own view point. I live in a country where freedom to express, is allowed and not punished. I voted for BC NDP in May 2017.

Last week, I visited the Legislative Buildings at 1230 pm. My aim was to watch the predicted fall of the BC Liberals to the BC NDP / BC Green Party. While I was in the building for 1 hour – until they closed the doors to the room in which the unfolding of events would take place – I felt a strong emotion in the halls of the Legislative Buildings. There was a feeling that something was wrong. After I left the Legislative Buildings I drove to the University of Victoria to visit their library to read my own book that I brought with me from home. I thought about the Legislative Buildings. Then at around 5 pm I watched CBC saying that Christy Clark, Leader of the BC Liberals had just lost to a no-confidence vote. She was now on her way to the Government House in the Rockland area in Victoria City. I watched Christy Clark, BC Liberal, climb the hill to the Government House where she was scheduled to meet with the Lieutenant Governor (LG). The LG was then going to make a decision of either a re-election for BC citizens or appoint Mr. John Horgan, the leader of the BC NDP. She ended up choosing the latter of the two. Mr. John Horgan became the new BC Provincial Premier.

There are two details in this unfolding of BC political events which bother me, as a BC Citizen, and a city dweller in Victoria who watched these events closely in order to understand:

[1] Could it have been possible that Christy Clark was discriminated against in a form of a psychological biased? Namely, in a recent Times Colonist newspaper article about the delivered Throne Speech, Christy Clark BC Liberal reported saying that she had listened to the BC people and is prepared to change for the benefit of the people but the BC NDP / BC Greens did not believe her

[2] Would it have not been a better BC political maneuver if a new election was held instead of having a Lieutenant Governor – a very high political authority in British Columbia decide? Would it not have been more democratic to have the BC voters decide on whom they wanted in power?

Perhaps a more fair way of breaking the virtual political BC Elections May 9th tie betwen the parties, would have been what they do in soccer, namely with some form of [1] sudden death or otherwise a [2] a lottery system. That would have eliminated the perception of Christy Clark being tormented into the form of a character assassination (in my humble opinion) during the 4 days of BC Legislative debate which took place between the Throne Speech and the No-confidence vote. And it would have eliminated the authority official, the Lieutenant Governor from being forced to make an executive decision on something that was really a matter of choice for the citizens of British Columbia and the citizens of British Columbia alone.

Protect BC democracy. Bring matters to the people.

Will British Columbia government fall?

Today, on June 29th, 2017, I went to the British Columbia Legislative Building to watch the fall of the BC Premier, Christy Clark. I walked up the staircase to the entrance of the building and 3 police men were guarding the door outside. They asked me what I was going to do in the Parliament buildings. I mentioned I was going to watch the BC political situation starting at 130 pm.

The BC Liberal government is currently run by Christy Clark, a BC Liberal. The BC NDP Party and the BC Green party are currently the official opposition party but how long will that last. It is 3 pm right now; and I suspect the political fall has or has not already taken place as I am writing this down.

It is my prediction that the BC Liberal, Christy Clark will politically out maneuver the BC NDP and the BC Green parties (who have joined forces together).  I do not expect the BC Provincial government to fall. Instead, I believe our province will be led by a minority government led by Christy Clark.

While I was standing in front of the political ceremonial area, I talked briefly with a tourist with a camera around his neck about the BC politics and noted that the current political situation was the most exciting political event in about 100 years of Canadian political history. He did not disagree with me. This tourist was from Coquitlam, BC and attended the session yesterday.

At 130 pm a Parliament building chime rang loud and a police man watching the entrance of the ceremonial hall on the 2nd floor, screamed to the underground tourists to remain silent as the house was now in session (the tourists and their tour guide continued to take no notice of the police officer and continued to talk). The heavy brown wooden door was closed and all that remained were me and the tourist and a handful of police officers.

The feeling in the Parliament Buildings in Victoria City, the Provincial capital of British Columbia, one of the provinces in Canada, was filled with tension. There was an emotionally charged feeling of danger; like at an airport. There was a high vigilance; and a feeling of uncertainty in the air.

I did not witness any amount of journalists in the Parliament Buildings today.

Once the large brown wooden door closed for the session to take place; I left. I felt I had caught the essence of this great BC political even by being inside the building while politicians were sweating to save their political careers and their power. The feeling inside the BC Parliament buildings cannot be captured by media photographs, one needs to be inside the building to experience it first hand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Red Alert – Who can solve this one?

June 28, 2017, Victoria City, Vancouver Island, British Columbia Canada –

Within the lives of the psychological masters, there really was no telling which way to go and which way not to go. Each way was completely wrong and a dead-end. Each step led to the library where each eye motion turned and read a piece of new information leading to Enlightenment and Insight; but both got completely crushed by the Elite powers. In the past, there was a time when Elite powers were able to share their knowledge with others and not be afraid but in 2017, those times and days are long gone. Each is afraid to share knowledge. Each is afraid to lose power and each clings to it like there is no tomorrow. Within the realm of career and finance this is especially the case; which makes prefect sense because our world is becoming smaller and smaller job-wise. It is like a shrinking island about to go under, like Bermuda or the Netherlands. The fear of losing land and ones identity is a real threat to a lot of people’s humanity. Culture seems to be becoming flooded, meaning that there is a universal culture threatening to take over everyone’s culture in a recolonization of United Nation rights and kind. Politics is becoming the status quo communication which means that our generation is becoming so educated with language that our only aim is to use language as in a battle field.
