I am JCVdude aka Joe Vass. As a Freelance Videographer, Producer & Photographer my passion & focus is travel and travel related videos; to show the incredible beauty of destinations in the hopes of intercepting and inspiring others to travel. 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. With an average of 100,000 views per day to our broadcast channel, we continue to be featured by Mainstream Media: Google Canada in the London Free Press reported, "Another wildly successful Canadian YouTube star is JCVdude."

Our collections of videos include a wide variety of content as we explore our world and it’s beauty; incredible alpine resorts, beautiful Caribbean resorts, Jazz Festivals & interviews with the great Buddy Guy, Talent Contests, Tours, Nature, Cuisine, Sporting Events, Arts & Culture and more, including Charitable and Non-Profit Events. 

Our philosophy is 'YOLO' ~ You Only Live Once. Tomorrow isn't promised to any of us so live life to it's fullest and with passion. My goal has always been to travel and document through video, the world and it's wonders and beauty. I film and produce video to allow my viewers the feeling that they are 'there' - in the destination themselves and also to whet their appetite to go ~ to travel and see & experience for themselves. 

We love travel! We are passionate about travel and passionate about documenting our travel. Never without our cameras, our day starts before the sun rises and ends late into the night. This is our passion!! 'YOLO'!!

Canadian Tea Party Needed

Vancouver British Columbia has the distinction of having the highest real estate prices in Canada with the average house now more than 1 million dollars. Recently the news played a game of is the house price real by showing dilapidated homes, some former drug houses and asking if the price is real.

The recent 2010 Winter games are said by Vancouver Mayor to be responsible for 60 million dollars in investment, not bad for a less than 3 week sporting event that is now mostly forgotten and cost more than 4 billion dollars. By comparison the Taiwan Expo will run for 6 month, is expected to attract 75 million people and also has an expected cost of 4 billion. The Winter Games were a huge waste of taxpayers dollars as this year already, the focus is on Taiwan Expo and the FIFA Cup in South Africa.

Further compounding Vancouver and British Columbia recovery and economic growth is the high Canadian dollar which has lead to hours of delays at the Canada/US border as Canadians head across the line for shopping bargains in everything from automobiles to groceries. Now the Liberal Government of Gordon Campbell has introduced the hated HST (harmonized sales tax) even though 70 -80% of British Columbians disapprove of this tax grab.  Showing complete contempt for the taxpayers and citizens the government is now collecting taxes on goods even though the act won't become law until July 1. There is a petition drive going on and even with the petition opposition of the constituents the government will enact the legislation.

No government would dare to so blatantly screw over the citizens of the USA, they would face the wrath of the voters. Perhaps it's time for a Canadian Tea Party and put all Liberal MLAs on notice that your days are numbered.
