    ...On Friday, Horgan said he hoped any potential protesters coming to Victoria would instead redirect their efforts to "positive outcomes." "I would just say to those people, goodness me, get a hobby," said Horgan. "Find something else to do with your time." "Ninety-four per cent of adults in British Columbia are vaccinated, so we are spending an awful lot of time with a small group of people who seem to have nothing better to do with their time besides drive around in circles honking their horns," he said.

    Victoria residents might want to prepare for a lot of trucks coming to their city on March 14 to protest vaccine mandates. "We're going to be occupying that area for two to three months," organizer James Bauder said on Rumble from Mattawa, Ontario. "This is a very intense, deeply rooted NDP-Liberal stronghold down there. And they've had their way for too long." He expects 500 to 1,000 vehicles will travel from Surrey to Victoria for what he's dubbed "Bearhug B.C." and "Bearhug II".

    Houston RCMP is presently investigating an incident where individuals allegedly engaged in a violent confrontation with employees of Coastal GasLink, and with attending police officers along the Morice River Forest Service Road near Houston, BC. On Thursday, February 17, 2022, shortly after midnight, Houston RCMP was called to the Marten Forest Service Road (FSR) after Coastal Gas Link (CGL) security reported acts of violence at their work site. It was reported approximately 20 people, some armed with axes, were attacking security guards and smashing their vehicle windows. It was initially reported that some CGL employees were trapped, but all had...
  • Record-Breaking 58-Foot Rogue Wave Detected Off Vancouver Island

    A 58-foot-tall wall of water that appeared off Vancouver Island in 2020 is among the largest rogue waves ever recorded, and it’s the very largest in terms of its proportion to surrounding waves, according to scientists. New research in Scientific Reports describes the gigantic wave, which appeared off the coast of Ucluelet, British Columbia, on November 17, 2020. The rogue wave reached 58 feet tall (17.6 meters)—a height equal to a four-story building. Despite names like “freak waves” and “killer waves,” these swells are normal oceanic phenomena, though their cause remains poorly understood. They’re likely churned into existence by a...

    A B.C. provincial court judge has ordered a father not to talk with his 11-year-old son about COVID-19 vaccination or to share any social media or other information about the vaccine and the disease with his child.

B.C. judge orders vaccinations for 2 boys over their mother's objections Heinrichs followed the lead of other provincial court judges across the country in concluding that getting the vaccine is in the child's best...

    "The whole story, it seems, was concocted to stir up hatred against Christians and stoke outrage. It succeeded. Remember last summer when a mass grave containing the remains of hundreds of children was found on the grounds of a former government boarding school for indigenous children in British Columbia, Canada? In the seven months since this shocking news broke, not one body has been found, and not a single shovel-full of dirt has been excavated from the site in question. Contrary to the worldwide media coverage last summer, nothing, in fact, has been “discovered” on the grounds of the Kamloops...

    ACanadian political scientist has urged his country's government to prepare for the possibility of the United States becoming a right-wing dictatorship before 2030. In an op-ed published in The Globe and Mail on Friday, Thomas Homer-Dixon, an executive director of the Cascade Institute at Royal Roads University in British Columbia, warned his country had to prepare for the worst-case scenario. "By 2025, American democracy could collapse, causing extreme domestic political instability, including widespread civil violence," Homer-Dixon wrote. "By 2030, if not sooner, the country could be governed by a right-wing dictatorship. We mustn't dismiss these possibilities just because they seem...

    While most of us can only dream of living in our own island, it’s the reality for this couple who calls the “Freedom Cove” their home. For the past 29 years, Catherine King and Wayne Adams have been living on a floating compound ten miles north of Tofino, British Columbia. They’ve named it the Freedom Cove, a sustainable home that was hand-built using recycled materials. It’s 25 minutes away from the closest town, but you can’t get there by car. “The only option to get here is by water,” Wayne said. “There are no road accesses. The water is our...

    National Post [Canada] ^ | Nov. 19, 2021 | CP
    The British Columbia government is rationing gasoline and restricting travel on Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, southwestern parts of the province and the Sunshine Coast after this week’s unprecedented storm severed highways and cut supply lines. Public Safety Minister Mike Farnworth said a limit of 30 litres of fuel per visit to a gas station is an important step to maintaining the supply as the province works to bring in more gas by truck and barge from Alberta, Washington state, Oregon and California. He said the order would apply for 10 to 11 days and he trusts that people won’t...

    Emergency crews in western Canada were still trying to reach some 18,000 people stranded by landslides and struggling to find food among bare grocery store shelves after devastating flooding. With communities in the region braced for more torrential rain in already inundated areas next week , the premier of British Columbia province declared an emergency and gave an emotional address in a press conference on Thursday. Appearing to fight back tears, John Horgan said: “The positive I’m going to take out of this is that it had shown British Columbians coming together supporting each other....

    The Anglosphere, at least in terms of their willingness to defend traditional Western values, has become the sick men of the West in the eyes of many. From the inability of even supposedly conservative governments in Britain and Australia to prevent the encroachment of medical tyranny to the nearly-countless BLM riots in America, it seemed only a matter of time before proudly post-national Canada would come out with their latest round of cultural brain farts, and it would appear that they (sadly) did not disappoint. According to Summit News, a war memorial in Canada dedicated to fallen soldiers was defaced...

Jack Worthington also agreed to allow The Globe and Mail to take his photograph, but only after his name was revealed by a Vancouver publication. He had been speaking with The Globe over the past few days on condition of anonymity. The British Columbia man is asking the Kennedys to provide a DNA sample so tests can be run to...

    Ruth Hamilton of Golden, British Columbia woke up to the sound of a crash and dust on her face the night of October 4. Onlookers had enjoyed a meteor sighting earlier that night above Lake Louise, about 52 mi east. Hamilton, who was unharmed, saw a rock on her pillow right next to where her head usually lies. She called 911, and she and an officer made calls to confirm that it wasn't debris from nearby construction at the Kicking Horse Canyon. 'We called the Canyon project to see if they were doing any blasting and they weren't, but they...

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been criticised for leaving on vacation during Canada's first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. The new federal holiday honours thousands of indigenous children who were forcefully assimilated in Canada's state-backed residential school system. Mr Trudeau's daily schedule had indicated he would spend the day in private meetings in the capital Ottawa. Instead he was spotted with family on the beach in Tofino, British Columbia. Mr Trudeau's office later amended his itinerary and, in a statement to CBC News, a spokesperson admitted: "Yes, the PM is spending time in Tofino with family for a few...

Her co-defendant, Samantha Frances Brooks, 24, pleaded guilty in July.
