For those of you who didn't have the time to read my 5 blogs on the BC Election, I have done a quick chart comparing the 7 issues that I mentioned in my first blog and other items of note.

The Green Party has become a going concern in BC and has attracted many quality candidates like Andrew Weaver and has a reputable First Nations Candidate Adam Olsen in the Saanich North and the Islands riding.

NDP have good Principles for First Nations, but what will the action be?

I wanted to take a look at what the political parties are saying about indigenous peoples in BC. I thought I would start with the BC Liberals.

 BC is now officially in campaign mode. Who will be the next Premier and lead this province for the next 4 years? NDP has been ahead in the polls, political pundits like Vaughn Palmer says that it is not in the bag yet.

We are living in turbulent times and #IdleNoMore is a large part of that!

 Dear PM Harper:

Today is the last day of 2012, a day to wrap up old business and so on January 1st, a new year can commence without the baggage of the last.
