Leave it to Matt Taibbi to peg it bang on : Organized greed always, always,defeats disorganized democracy. So get on it people! Organize yourselves!
For that reason I am about to embark on an intensive work weekend during which I’ll be working on a number of items that you’ve been looking forward to!
As well, my regular column in 24Hrs Vancouver will be back on Monday following our break this week due to the Easter holiday… and I think you’ll be glad to hear we have some political duels on the horizon during the weeks leading up to the election, where we’ll be taking a look at some of the top issues voters are concerned about in British Columbia.
Until then, scroll down and read some of the recent posts, or look through the site and the Best Of page to find other still relevant offerings. From fracking to corruption,pipelines to policy, there isn’t much I haven’t written about!! I will pop in to answer comments and emails,but for the most part, the nose will be to the grindstone…
Have a great weekend, and I’ll see you on Monday!

Very much appreciated Laila. I always look forward to your posts.
As far as I can tell the Liberal Party is showing no difference than the Conservatives as far as corporate pandering goes. They will implement everything that they want and pretend to care about the environment while they are at it. Just like last time!
Hmm. Considering the donations revealed by Elections BC given to the NDP in the last few months of 2012, one wonders how much anything will change. Rarely do corporations and people give large amounts of money to political parties and expect nothing in return.
I’m talking about how the electorate floats between the Liberals and the Cons.
How much did the NDP get in corporate donations vs individuals? Do you think they should refuse them? Do the Liberals refuse individual donations?
Let’s turn that around.
If you bank at RBC (Royal Bank of Calcutta) take your business elsewhere.
I agree and Norman Farrell has hit a very simple home run with that one. http://northerninsights.blogspot.ca/2013/04/time-for-consumer-boycott-of-rbc.html
Are you aware of this travesty Laila ?
Any chance of a new list for the Conservatives ?
