It grew worrisome how much safety was lacking for women in Vancouver-area parks not so long ago, awareness of which was raised to new heights by the murder of 15-year-old Laura Szendrei in late September 2010, and now we know who did it. Wyatt DeBruin savaged the Grade 10 student in transit to Mackie Park, at 1:30 p.m. on Sep. 25, 2010, and she died in hospital early the next morning, Sep. 26, 2010, from a severe blow to the head.                                       READ IT HERE

As summer winds down I gaze upon blue green mountains with pale peaks that stack on top of a darkening vista, here late in the afternoon a fluffy cloud floats still on an asure sky. Crickets chirp, "Try", says a resident, "to ever find one." Indeed despite kicking some dandelions and sending wishes on their way, I cannot. A cabbage butterfly lands on a random note then takes flight to a path of crushed purple shells and sand.                                         READ IT HERE

Only a few years ago, one Judge J.F Palmer imposed a sentence of 42 months prison time on Mathieu Flynn. 24, of Vancouver. Flynn was no small time crook, he was a millionaire, some might call him an entrepreneur of sorts. In drawers around his Coquitlam home the RCMP had found his secret stash, piles and piles of $100, $50 and $20 bills. In fact Mr Flynn had been busy over the previous three years counterfeiting over $2 million dollars in Canadian currency. Counterfeiting was dubbed by Michael Young in the Dallas morning News in 2009 as "the worlds second oldest profession." In the 1200's China introduced paper money, mulberry trees used to make paper money had to be guarded to prevent counterfeiters. Back then the penalty for counterfeiting was death by beheading. In the 21st Century we are more used to reading a life threatening warning on a packet of cigarettes. . . .

 The economy in the Northwest Pacific of B.C. is transitional with many possible activities that could change the city into the port of "now." This port of the future has been in its history envisioned to have world-class facilities and urban infrastructure in the area of Prince Rupert (on Kaien Island). The Industrial Revolution and Prince Rupert were supposed to be a marriage made in heaven when Charles Melville Hays aspired to create a second transcontinental railroad in Canada. He was President of the Grand Trunk Railway until his remarkable vision and life passed with the sinking of the Titanic.   READ IT HERE
