2020 Summer Counter Attack Impaired Driving Campaign has begun!

If you will be out and consuming alcohol or recreational drugs, please plan a safe ride home. Hosting a get together? Remember that you have responsibilites for your guests when you are serving intoxicants. There is no excuse for driving while impaired and BC has some significant penalties for drivers who make the wrong choice.

Traffic Calming

DriveSmartBC LogoWhenever I make a public presentation and then open the floor to questions people always highlight the traffic problems in their neighbourhoods and ask why the police never seem to be doing anything about them. I always feel inadequate when I point out that those same problems exist everywhere in our community and the police can only be there occasionally.

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day 2020

Office of the Seniors Advocate BC LogoToday is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. It represents the one day in the year when the whole world voices its opposition to the abuse and suffering inflicted on some of our older generations. The Office of the Seniors Advocate monitors and analyzes seniors services and issues in B.C., and makes recommendations to government and service providers to address systemic issues. You can learn more about elder abuse through the Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse.

I knew exactly what was going to happen: one last drag on the butt and flick, away it went into the ditch.
