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'!!

Hi folks. 
Here's a letter you can send out to Harper and all the MPs. 
(via Dianne Varga)

Dear Prime Minister and Members of Parliament:

It should be clear from the numerous rallies that happened in cities across Canada this past weekend, Canadians want answers about the Robocall scandal and the many other complaints surrounding 2011 electoral processes that were studiously ignored by Elections Canada when they were lodged. From coast to coast, Canadians called for an independent inquiry into these matters.

According to a Postmedia News poll conducted last week, 75 per cent of Canadians support an independent inquiry with judicial powers to look into the Robocall affair. Those Canadians cannot be said to be involved in “baseless smears” such as the opposition is accused of doing. Canadians are simply calling for a rigorous inquiry, an inquiry with teeth.

While the Prime Minister is correct when he says that Elections Canada are busy investigating right now and are invested by law to do so, Elections Canada will not obtain all of their investigative powers for at least another six months, when related legislation might (or might not) be passed. Moreover, Canadians have seen with the In and Out scandal of 2006 how seriously and for what length of time Elections Canada can become bogged down in acrimonious litigation, right up to the Supreme Court.

I hear the voices all across this country saying that whether or not the election was stolen, this affair must be investigated fairly, fully, and without delay. I call upon you to establish an independent inquiry with judicial powers, or indeed a royal commission, and to do so immediately.

In response to the robo-call scandal:

Two Inform Canada supports the view that Canada should transition from a “Representative Democracy” to a “Participatory Democracy”.
Realizing there is a long road ahead before any sort of reform or re-structuring of our current political system is possible, we still feel confident in bringing the concept forward so that the “INTELLIGENT COLLECTIVE BRAINSTORMING” may begin in more places than merely the odd living room.

We propose Virtual Think Tanks(or physical if you have enough committed people around) as a possibility for inspired activists or interested individuals to come together and meet one another then proceed to discuss potential solutions for global, national, provincial and even municipal problems. Together we have enough talent to combine our Collective Intelligence into thought-provoking: articles, editorials, blog posts, books, essays, news reports, videos, audio files, posters, handouts, letters to our MPs, text campaigns, public demonstrations, school presentations, mini-documentaries, commercials and the list goes on..

WE NEED YOU! Any and all talents can be combined and utilized to create inspiration regardless of how diverse or ordinary that skill may be.
You are the future; you have the choice and the capability to make positive change.

“We must be the change we want to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi
