I have chosen YouTube, as my delivery system as it is the World's 2nd Largest Search Engine, it accomodates HD & 3D video and in using it, we are viewed in over 200 Countries World Wide.

With my partner, Cindy Aspden, our JCVdude YouTube Channel is the 17th Most Viewed Channel All Time in Canada.

Frog - Kane Valley British Columbia - YouTube

I AM the Frog Whisperer! LOL So what happened was, I was walking along the edge of the water to be able to film the water lily and was startled by this frog who hopped away to avoid meeting my sandal! She posed at the lily for me, then swam back right by me again!! Even let me pick her up.

Alberta Flood Price Gougers - WTF?

So now the true color of some of the Calgary Entrepreneurs'  is coming out..Price gouging is against the law but it happens every time there is a major emergency, only thing is we used to see this south of the border so it's like a 'shock' when we see it here in Canada.



Alberta Flooding June 2013 Tarsands Connection

We might not be able to say definitively that there is a connection between the Alberta flooding of 2013 and carbon emission, climate change but I don't think anyone can say that there isn't.

The jet-stream is going wonky (scientific term). Pollutants from Asia drift over to North America in approx. 5 days.  I believe that all the major climate events are connected to global warming and man's output of carbon and use of fossil fuel.

The costs of this are already mounting in human cost, loss of life and in financial cost of rebuilding and preparing for further and worse events to come.

Make the industries pay for their part in this. Better yet stop the proliferation of fossil fuel.

March Against Monsanto

The world according to Monsanto - GMO *

Monsanto manufactures weed-killer Roundup. Monsanto also manufactures the genetically-modified soybean seeds that are resistant to Roundup -- approximately 3 times more expensive than regular soybean seeds.

What is most stunning about Monsanto's "terms" of sale of its crop seeds is that Monsanto does not actually "sell" anything. Rather, to purchase crop seeds from Monsanto, farmers must agree to a "Technology Stewardship Agreement," which is more aptly a "limited use license." This means that farmers are not actually purchasing soybean seeds, but rather, merely the right to use Monsanto's "technology" contained in crop seeds in a "limited" manner. According to the Agreement, farmers must pledge to plant the Monsanto seeds in only one growing season, never save any, or give any away. Farmers are obligated to give Monsanto permission to access farmer's internet service provider records, and produce documentation of its compliance with the Agreement "within 7 days" if asked by Monsanto. Finally, if Monsanto has to enforce the terms of the Agreement, the farmer is required pay Monsanto all of its attorneys' fees, costs, and expenses associated for doing so.

ATTN KELOWNA: Challenge the new face of corporate power‏

The Council of Canadians


I'd like to extend a special invitation to you to join me for a public discussion on "CETA, FIPA, TPP: The New Face of Corporate Power." This event will be part of an eight-city speaking tour in B.C. to build opposition to Canada's corporate trade agenda.

Event details:
Wednesday, May 22
7-9 p.m. 
French Cultural Centre, 702 Bernard Ave, Kelowna (map)
Hosted by the Kelowna Chapter of the Council of Canadians
For more information call: 250-769-1977 or email: kareneh@silk.net

CETA, FIPAs, TPPThe Government of Canada has signed, is negotiating and is hoping to ratify a variety of new corporate rights treaties that promote and lock in the rights of corporations to make a profit while undermining communities' abilities to make decisions in their own interest. Like NAFTA before them, these deals are not about trade. Every new agreement further entrenches a corporate vision of deregulation, resource exploitation and privatization. 

These "next generation" deals include the Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement (CETA) with the European Union, the 12-country Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations that Canada joined this past December, and countless investor rights pacts, like the one with China, called Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreements (FIPA / FIPPA).

Opposition to these deals is building. More than 80 municipalities have passed resolutions voicing their concerns or opposition to the CETA negotiations. Nearly 100,000 people signed a petition against the Canada-China FIPA, and the Hupacasath First Nation has launched a constitutional challenge to its ratification. Communities are beginning to organize and educate about the TPP in solidarity with global trade justice movements.

The Council of Canadians is hosting this speaking tour in B.C. to build collective opposition to all of these agreements. In the spirit of the anti-WTO Battle for Seattle and the Quebec City protest against the defeated Free Trade Area of the Americas, we hope to bring our vibrant movements back into the streets to derail Canada's corporate rights agenda and dismantle the treaties that lock it in.
 
I hope you can join me!
