What's wrong with
The Vancouver Sun?

Most "normal" people tend to sweat when they have to lie. The exception to this are those sociopaths such as a certain white haired prevaricating adulterer with a predilection for wearing red mittens (to disguise the blood on his hands?)

Of course the Province (also owned by Canned Waste - or ? since it is up for sale due to bankruptcy isn't an alternative that one can go to for the truth. A correspondent sent me this - though I don't know its source - the message is clear.

The estimates of the size of the crowd ranged from what I would say was 4000+ to, in two cases, 10,000. I believe the latter estimate is too high but the lawn was jam packed as were the stairs leading up to the door of the Legislature. It was certainly in the thousands. I compared it to the rally over the Pitt River issue two years ago where the high school gym held over 1000 and can say yesterday’s crowd was at least 4 or 5 times larger!

It was an excited, happy noisy throng who listened to a number of speeches with great enthusiasm and who all came away with a vow to see this fight through to what must certainly be a successful conclusion.

The Vancouver Province reported on this in two short paragraphs on A28 saying that there were nearly 1000 people!

I really no longer know how to describe this rag except to say that it’s little wonder that they’re bankrupt. It’s sad to see this kind of coverage which so badly distorted the truth for so many who couldn’t make this trek themselves...

Calling numbers in a crowd any time is difficult so perhaps it should be left to Vicky Husband, a veteran environmentalist and activist, who holds an Order of Canada, who said it was the biggest environmental gathering that she had ever seen and very likely the biggest in BC history.

The people of British Columbia should be getting tired of being kept in the dark and fed mushroom fertilizer.

Both the Sun and the Province are sold. But does that mean they will be operated any differently. As in firing the government lapdogs?

Don't look to the new boys/girls on the block for truth - nothing has changed except the name of the owner.
