Keeping an eye on Communist, Totalitarian China, and its influence both globally, and we as Canadians. I have come to the opinion that we are rarely privy to truth regarding the real goal, the agenda of Red China, and it's implications for Canada [and North America as a whole]. No more can we rely on our media as more and more information on China is actively being swept under the carpet - not for consumption.

This is a geographically diverse riding that includes the million-dollar mansions of West Vancouver and the ski chalets of Whistler, as well as a large number of blue-collar workers living in such communities as Powell River, Pemberton, and Squamish. Toss in the communities of Lions Bay and Sechelt, and it’s clear that this is not a one-size-fits-all riding.
It has the oldest median age, 44.9, of any federal riding in Metro Vancouver. It also has one of the highest percentages of residents living in single detached homes.
In addition, this riding has the country’s first Green party MP, Blair Wilson, who switched after being suspended from the Liberal caucus and told that he wasn’t welcome to seek a nomination.
Wilson is in a legal fight with his deceased mother-in-law’s husband, wealthy apartment owner Bill Lougheed. Elections Canada cleared Wilson of any “serious financial wrongdoing” after the issue erupted in the Province newspaper. Wilson rung up $9,000 in printing costs that he didn’t count as election expenses.
Lawyer John Weston, who argued against the Nisga'a treaty in court, is running for the second consecutive time for the Conservatives. His party held this riding when John Reynolds was the MP until he retired in 2006.
The Liberals have recruited Squamish mayor Ian Sutherland. The NDP nominated Dana Larsen, a strong opponent of drug prohibition and senior manager of the Vancouver Seed Bank. But he resigned as a candidate when video footage appeared of him smoking pot and doing LSD on Pot-TV. On September 20, the NDP nominated Bill Forst, a retired school counsellor who lives in Gibsons.
