What is “Colonialism?”

Language has become a weapon. For many people this is puzzling. Isn’t language supposed to help us communicate? Shouldn’t it be clear, and an aid to understanding? Isn’t language beautiful, and hasn’t it inspired the people who came before us? Yes. All true. Language should be all these things and has been in the past, but nowadays it has been twisted into a political weapon.

Retiring Chairman’s Message, Reed Elley

by Perry D Foster
About 7 years ago, some of us were sitting in Tim Hortons having coffee together. We decided that we would stop complaining about what was happening in Canada and start doing something.

There are hundreds, perhaps thousands of people, mostly from Vancouver Island, but also across Canada, who are better educated […]

What Churchill Means to Us

by Perry D Foster
There are many kinds of heroes. Some are anonymous, living ordinary lives without recognition or fame. You may know someone like that. They are heroic because they inspire us through their exemplary conduct, self sacrifice and character. If we are lucky they are family members, relatives or friends. If not, then we can always dip into the well of history to find someone.  History is full of heroes. For me, and millions of others, the greatest of these was Winston Churchill.  Churchill is Inspirational Churchill’s life was an inspiration. He wasn’t perfect. He made mistakes, like the disastrous Dardanelles campaign of […]
