Harper’s Year End Message, (with added context).

Sister Sages Musings - Fri, 12/26/2014 - 12:50

Full text of Harper’s Christmas message:

This Christmas, we Canadians have many reasons to celebrate (fear for our children’s future).

We live in a beautiful country, a compassionate (war mongering) country, a prosperous country (hollowed out petro state).

Despite the difficulties elsewhere in the world, Canada’s economy is getting ever stronger (weaker) and more Canadians . . . → Read More: Harper’s Year End Message, (with added context).

Poverty

Sister Sages Musings - Mon, 11/17/2014 - 18:14

     I woke up this morning thinking about food banks. They are advertising now. Food banks are a relatively new phenomenon. I think they meant well. I think what ended up happening though is that food banks allowed the government to ignore poverty.

     Food bank use in Canada has escalated by 25 % . . . → Read More: Poverty

Some of the Things I learned at Home.

Sister Sages Musings - Mon, 09/29/2014 - 23:16

When I was a child, I used to love to make my dad’s lunch. He was a logger. I would line his lunchbox with a paper towel and write a message on it. “I love you”, “have a great day”. I would make him a couple of sandwiches, wrapped neatly in wax paper. His . . . → Read More: Some of the Things I learned at Home.

Not Yet a Comeback — The Bitch Ain’t Back, Yet

Well, boys n girls, I think this is the longest I’ve been away from blogging. Other than the occasional tweet or Facebook posting of an article or picture of interest, and only recently, back to commenting on a few like minded blogs, I haven’t really written or done anything of substance. I have written . . . → Read More: Not Yet a Comeback — The Bitch Ain’t Back, Yet

Mount Polley, BC Environment Min goes all DEFCON-1

Sister Sages Musings - Tue, 09/09/2014 - 21:39

Apparently, the BC Environment Minister has noticed that her complete lack of action on the Mount Polley tailings disaster is not sitting well with British Columbians.

The Mothercorp reports today a stern sounding rebuke from the Ministry to Imperial Metals to “stop, I say STOP” releasing effluent down what used to be Hazeltine Creek . . . → Read More: Mount Polley, BC Environment Min goes all DEFCON-1

We Had This Place

Sister Sages Musings - Fri, 09/05/2014 - 21:21

There was this place in the world, where we were home.

For a decade, we occupied this place. We brought in topsoil. Slate. Beautiful flatrock. At the time, I worked at a nursery, and I brought in plants, shrubs, trees. Dave made art out of stumps and logs and burls. We stewarded that land . . . → Read More: We Had This Place

Peace

Sister Sages Musings - Thu, 09/04/2014 - 18:05

Instead of hating, let’s find common ground. What are you for? I am for peace. I feel that peace can easily be achieved by equality. Equality (for me) would be obtained by making a global constitution that included water, food and shelter as human rights. What are you for?

Mt Polley. Where is the Government?

Sister Sages Musings - Mon, 09/01/2014 - 19:31

Oh, that fickle news cycle! Bestie of Christy Clark, Bill Bennett, Mary Polak.

Where the fuck is the Federal Government, namely, Gail Shea, Minister Responsible for Fisheries and Oceans? Yes, Ms Shea, wild salmon spend a considerable portion of their time in our lakes and rivers. Why are you not out here, getting . . . → Read More: Mt Polley. Where is the Government?
