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 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'!!

I WILL Vote Against Bill C-10 (Omnibus Crime Bill)

An ongoing campaign to encourage 'sober thought' on the Omnibus Crime Bill involved email letters to Canadian Senators & MP's. It was encouraging to receive a response back indicating a vote against this harmful Bill. Here's the Senator's Letter:

Feb 29, 2012

I would like thank you for your email regarding Bill C-10.

The government’s attitude towards crime fails to understand the fundamental connection between the challenges of addiction, mental illness, poverty, and that of crime. As a provincial judge wrote, “poverty is the first fuel that drives crime. It becomes mixed in with the destabilization of families, widespread substance abuse, child abuse, sexual abuse and domestic violence”

Instead of working towards programs that will help solve the root causes of crime, Bill C-10 targets those who need our help the most.

Currently, the bill is before the Senate and will be up for final reading this week. I will vote against C-10 because I remain committed to pursuing a crime and justice approach that is evidence-based, applies appropriate penalties, is cost-effective, and would tackle the root causes of crime like poverty.

Please continue to let all of the Conservative Party Senators know how you feel on this important issue before the final vote.

Yours sincerely,

Art Eggleton (Liberal Senator)
