What if the Mount Polley Disaster happened to Stanley Park?

My friend from San Francisco visited last week and he just loved Vancouver. He  thought it was paradise. So clean and pretty..so GREEN!

We are blessed. I haven't actually ridden around  STANLEY PARK  yet this year...need to get my bike fixed but I do love it there. As well as the millions of others that have visited.

Now for a second, let's think the UNIMAGINABLE!
That someone poured TOXIC SOUP all over our precious gem.
What would happen? OUTRAGE right?




So that already happened for real.

It is called the MT. POLLEY DISASTER as YET nothing is happening. People are too busy with their own lives and because it's out of sight out of mind, we don't think about it and of course it is so HORRIBLE we don't want to think about.

This is reality folks. This could REALLY HAPPEN TO YOUR HOME!! 

How would you feel?


 How would you feel? Think, how would you feel if this happened to your home and no one did anything, ....no one listened...the government and the politicians and police....the law...did nothing...

Because that is how corporations works. They are protected by the government, by corrupt greedy politicians and CEO and they force the police to protect them because of laws invented and put forth by the corporations. The best example of this is what happened at Clayoquot Sound. You must watch this video to UNDERSTAND the true SCOPE of the warped laws that have been created by the corporations and carried out by the law. IT IS SO WRONG. It makes the good guys bad and the bad guys good. THIS MUST CHANGE if there is any hope for our children and children's children.



WHAT KIND OF LIFE DO YOU WANT?




This is how high the TOXIC MUD was when it came through. NOW imagine this was our beloved STANLEY PARK, what would you do? what wouldn't you do.

REALITY CHECK FOLKS. Why is STANLEY PARK more important that this paradise lost?

So I get it, there's a bunch of old dudes with lots of money and they think they are entitled to everything because sadly that was the bs that they have been fed, taught and raised with. They are the old unenlightened ones...but it is time for them to move on...they will die off soon but their evil toxic legacy will live on for centuries...millenium because you CAN NOT CLEAN THIS UP!!!


The damage done to MOTHER EARTH  in the last 200 years is EPIC in scale to a meteor destroying the dinosaurs.

Soon we will be the dinosaurs.

Think about that ....think long and hard...because it's the truth. UNLESS we change our ways...

New Mural NEEDED at Maritime Museum & More

 Updated May 18 2017  See Update at the bottom

------------------
As someone who has lived in Kitsilano off and on the last 20 years I have seen this mural at the Vancouver Maritime Museum countless time and I mostly ignored it. I never found it interesting...it always bothered me but I didn't do anything.

But now it really bothers me. Look at it. 
The First Nations are on the outside and look at how they are depicted in comparison to the the Military dudes. Pleasee help I might vomit...

There's not a single woman represented. 

This mural was created in 1986, probably for Expo 86 and it HAS GOT TO GO!!

So I have sent an email and I hope I get a response. This was part of it...

Please for Canada150+  and for Reconciliation change it to reflect the truth. We know so much more now. Please...that whole area ..has a history no one acknowledges..and yet we occupy it. I challenge you to do something about it for Reconciliation. I hope you will consider my suggestion. Thanks


Here is a write up on it.

And then while searching their site I saw this. wth...this is for kids...
 WHAT WAR IS GOOD FOR???

OMG...there go my cookies...woof....ralph...Somebody help me please....

Today I saw they were trying to raise money for this 

and I suggested on the Facebook page a new mural instead.
 Here is part of the letter I wrote to them, let's see if the respond.
 I was wondering if you are planning on a new mural. I mentioned on Instagram a while back but heard nothing. The mural should represent Indigenous people bigger or as big as the colonialists and should feature women too!. That mural is 1986 and it is a very visual and I think (negative )influence on all who pass.

Please for Canada150+  and for Reconciliation change it to reflect the truth. We know so much more now. Please...that whole area ..has a history no one acknowledges..and yet we occupy it. I challenge you to do something about it for Reconciliation. I hope you will consider my suggestion. Thanks

I know some people who do murals, create beautiful Coast Salish designs and I have reached out to a few. I did a lot of research on Coast Salish designs as well.

Sharifah is working on a mural and I know she did one for the NEC

Kim is an excellent artist and she went through the Reconciliation Carving with me.

Audrey Siegl 

Justine Wallace is an excellent artist and she went through the Reconciliation Carving with me.

I hope to hear back from everyone, most especially you, very soon.
