They said the same things about recycling.....it is doable, people just need to stop being lazy.....most people already own travel coffee cups, but leave them buried in the cupboard

The ban is good. We all have travel mugs and bottles. Cold turkey, stop using the disposable crap now. It needs to happen. Lets make it happen.
yesterday at 20:39
Of course the industry said that. They'll say anything if it saves them a buck. If they lose money because of the ban that's their problem. Profits don't come before the environment.

Regardless of political views, this is too far. Threatening politicians because you disagree with them is ineffective, and criminal.
Also, don't go off about "but that Crusty b***h is a criminal too!" Has she been charged yet? No, so she isn't a criminal.
Also, anyone notice a pattern that female politicians take way more crap from the electorate than their male counterparts? Clark, Ambrose, Wynne and Notley sure seem to rile everyone way more than any male leader.
yesterday at 19:31
How many people have the M.C.F.D harassed and threatened due to whistle blowers who came forward ??? How many people have probably had same thoughts in the privacy of their home ??? It was a matter of speach and no big deal should be made out of this to slander someone's name for a moment of anger .
yesterday at 21:00
Reading this I would really like more, or real details. It said the woman uttered threats and it says it may have happened on the 30th???? You aren't sure when it happened? Also Christy wasn't even there?
"on or about April 30, 2017 in Kelowna.
The incident appears to have occurred during the recent election campaign, but it seems Clark was not in Kelowna at the time."

For one fleeting moment I was heartened thinking mainstream Vancouverites had stormed city hall (figuratively speaking). WHEN are average, everyday working people going to rise up and scream about being sold out to laundered money?
yesterday at 19:58
perhaps instead of occupying the Vancouver mayor's office, why not actually go out and build some housing.
you're all there. ask for tools, materials, and land. because this protest isn't helping.
yesterday at 20:16
"Activists" in other words unemployed welfare people that would rather protest than work. And come on we all know most homeless are addicts so enough with the generic homeless nonsense, most are addicts or mentally ill. Most people that are down on their luck have family or friends to help them over the rough patches. You can't magically make homes affordable, the working class move to where it is cheaper, they don't yell and scream and demand places are given to them.

The airline alleges Neena Cheema tried to use allegedly stolen nuts and hand lotion to bribe HR
Air Canada cleaner fired for stealing nuts wins chance to regain job

Does this really say that a seventeen year employee was fired because during a conversation with HR about a change in her vacation dates, she pulled garbage left behind in first class from her pocket and placed it on the counter? That is how she "bribed" the HR person to change her vacation dates? And firing was the only sanction their HR department could come up with? Something seems very wrong at AirCanada.
yesterday at 19:41
Someone really didn't like the lady... If anyone considers itself bribed by nuts and lotion in Air Canada, something is very wrong. Giving the items away, for me, even shows that she didn't have the intention to keep it.
yesterday at 19:04
OMG. Seriously? For left over garbage? So that means Air Canada re-uses the hand lotion and nuts. Whatever you get may have been previously rejected and on the floor.

I didn't vote for the Liberals, but it bothers me that the party that DID get elected is being ousted intentionally by the other parties. I realise that they think they're doing everyone a favour, but our system works this way for a reason and it's not up to them to decide what the people want.

To sum up, the sooner Christy Clark stops playing procedural games, hoping to force an election ; the sooner our new government can get to work for the people of B.C.

As far as i'm concerned ANYONE who doesn't want Christy & the Liberals gone means simply that they condone the homelessness & killing of our vulnerable so that makes you the SCUM of the earth & not worthy of commenting.

This is all Horgan & Weaver's fault. If they would've dealt with a minority in the proper way, instead of concocting an opportunistic backroom scheme, BC wouldn't be in limbo. It's clear neither cares about BC, they only care about power.

Years ago I watched a tourist get out of his car with his camera to his face and walk right up to a bull elk on the side of the highway on the Jasper Banff highway. He was not 2 feet away, got his photo, turned around still looking at the camera and walked back to his car.... never once looked at the animal with his eyes. I thought he was a trophy photographer getting no wonder or joy in the animal just the photo to brag about. IDIOT.
