Majority BC Lib Govt. versus Minority BC NDP Govt.

Majority Liberal Legislative Assembly Members must first “sell” the Premier’s every wish & whim to their Ridings and then their souls or sit in opposition pretending to be holier than thou in a “paper tiger” minority party role.  Minority NDP Legislative Assembly Members may “sell”, without rebuke, their Ridings’ requirements to their minority party...

Signs of the Times

During the past two decades, the majority of B.C. Municipalities have embraced, encouraged and enjoyed myriad eclectic groups of Mayors & Councils . .  . who instead of encumbering . . . . . . embraced, encouraged and enjoyed economic development. During the past two decades plus, Oliver has endured only three different Mayors and...

Camels Without Toes Are Like Castles Built on Sand

Inside Oliver Town boundaries our Fatal Fairview Freeway has suffered more fatalities and continues to sustain less speed enforcement than all the other ridiculously renamed and renumbered roadways combined. 169 Desert Sand Hill Homes + Commercial Component x 2 cars per home = 1 more vehicle accessing & exiting our speedway between 7-9a.m. &...

Hovanes Has ‘Wine Capital of Canada Ego’ Harps Hampson

Hampson’s Hollow Harping Harbours Hovanian Hate & Hostility. The Visionary Airport Plan envisioned as quixotic by most and idiotic by others was conceived and consecrated under Hampson’s stiff upper lip. Hampson’s harping might have held water but his ship sank during his mayoralty tenure when he (Hampson) and Area “C’ Director (Patton) seemingly fused...

Oliver Water Meters Outsmart Electorate

That in the near future, Orwellian Pocket-Desert Denizens, who take responsibility to decrease water usage, will be the cause for water rate increases, is a modern day example of doublespeak. Is “rewarding” those Oliver citizens who waste less water with a pocketbook penalty, hypocritical? Yes! But not as hypocritical as the Area C director...

Sunshine Café Under Siege Awaiting Attack

Why would the 7-Eleven’s malicious manageress insinuate to those who would listen, the Sunshine Café a “drug-dealing den” and why would she inform, collaborate and further her intentionally wrong and spiteful fabrication with Police? Why, because the straightforward sunshine server would not kowtow to the dark draconian dragoness’ delirious demands and demeanour. We understand...

Sunshine Café Grows Grass

Grass? Wheatgrass! What were you thinking? Thinking otherwise deserves a cup of 7-Eleven coffee. Nutritionally, wheatgrass is a complete food that contains almost all of the 102 earth elements. There is no substitute for good grass any more than there is for water, sunshine and air. Socrates said, “Bad men live that they may...

Wine Village People Embark On Core Review And Hotel Study

Just after the free taxi snafu Oliver Mayor & Council, behind closed doors, feel the need to hide their “need” for a diversionary Core Services Review. Consultants rarely bite the hands that feed them so “results” will probably reflect the need for more and higher paid administrators and fewer lower paid workers. The chosen...
