Gateway is a BC provincial liberal mandated transportation project to facilitate trade with Asia primarily China. That’s the excuse ….to facilitate the movement of internal combustion traffic into regional centres so there’s a supposed economic outcome but what is the true cost……ethically, morally, to health and well being and to the legacy to our children?

The Greed Principle
Why are we dealing with China anyway it is ethically and morally wrong but we as Canadians refuse to take a stand against our government. Religious persecution is rampant, industrial development is unchecked, pollution is unchecked and excessive enviromental degradation is disgusting,(Pollutants including mercury from China arrive on the westcoast in less than 5 days), internal political persecution is profound, China supports renegade nations like Sudan and contributes to the genocide in Darfur with arms and ordinance, supports other violent regimes, denies freedom of speech. In addition, Tibet’s violent take over by China, should be regarded as a travesty.

We support this as Canadians..its win win economically. We invest in China like its the best thing since sliced bread………
are we that Gutless??????

Scientists say that Vancouver BC Canada is one of the most liveable regions in the world. Yet our government wants to increase
internal combustion traffic (against the science just like global warming) by building more roads and twinning existing bridges to flood the region with more vehicles. Common sense tells not to do this its a no brainer

Europeans laugh at us. Our transport network is totally inadequate. We should have rapid transit running out the 401 to Chilliwack.
Where is the forward thinking? Planners go to university what for?? We have the opportunity to shine. Yet we do not. Do we have children?

Question Authority let the powers that be know that we can vote them out of office.

Federal Liberal turncoat David Emerson is leaving for China on a trade mission at the beginning of January 07…… show your disapproval write a note to the Federal Government. Not only did the Emerson affair corrupt political process and set disturbing precedents in ethics, his government is embracing trade with China to say nothing about environmental issues abroad and at home.

The Exxon Valdez supertanker spilled 11 million gallons of crude oil into Prince William Sound, polluting around 2,000km of coastline.

The disaster is estimated to have killed 250,000 seabirds, 2,800 sea otters, 300 harbour seals, 250 bald eagles, up to 22 killer whales, and an unknown number of salmon and herring.

In the original court ruling, Exxon was ordered to pay out $5 BILLION.

THIS HAS BEEN DOWNGRADED 12 YEARS LATER TO A 25 MILLION PAY OUT WHICH IS TAX DEDUCTABLE THERE ARE 1000 MILLION IN 1 BILLION 5000 MILLION IN 5 BILLION

SO FIQURE OUT THE DISCOUNT PERCENTAGE

EXXON STOCKS ARE ABOUT TO RISE
GET GORDON CAMPBELL TO DEVELOP OFFSHORE OIL ON THE WEST COAST OF BRITISH COLUMBIA NOW

Gabriola Island gallery space. The Alpenglow Gallery Framed prints and cards. Opened on the Thanksgiving weekend.

This is my base camp for gulf island explorations….a two day discovery mission of composition and the art of photography starts here and travels the scenic coast of Gabriola Island. Optional modes of discovery, exploring new angles can also include sea kayaking. Gabriola Island is a unique and special place to discover.

It’s snowing everywhere above 1000 metres. So get out and enjoy.
You can shoot into the sun meter or underexpose and you get a shot like this. In this shot clouds helped diffuse the sun so lense flare was not a factor a lense hood is always a good idea as it keeps the ambient contrast
at a minimum.

Never Forget…Never forget that we too can become extinct so it might be time to take steps to change this.

I figure we have already past the environmental threshold. That is the the threshold which the environment can sustain itself. We are struggling. Things may get worse. Will Kyoto make a difference now? I wonder? Figure all the pollution caused by internal combustion engines, most cities have traffic gridlocks twice a day, figure all the drive thru’s in NAmerica, the convenience we have now is going to be pretty inconvenient when it starts to kill us or impact the life we take for granted. What do you think??
Never Forget

Windsurfing BC cold fingers and a stormy wait for the light. The epitome of location, light and environment.

This Blog site alpenglowpro is in build mode. Header windsurfers added today.

November December storm light is lush and saturated. This November the west coast of Canada has seen little sun. If a frontal system is in change up in the late afternoon 3-5pm there is a good chance a fleeting glance of sun will grace the landscape.
A location photographer that is savvy with the environment and weather, might align himself to be in position to take advantage of the light.

Be prepared to play the waiting game.

These are the key attributes to life. Be conscious and have a conscience. ALWAYS Question Authority
