Even if you go through your day to day without ever discussing religion or politics with co-workers and strangers alike; you should try to attend your local march next weekend and add to the visible numbers who demand peace in their names.

Pretending it's a drama or cartoon playing out on the channel you never turn to on your television set will just leave you wondering where you've ended up; a third of the current Middle East's population will have been exterminated so efficiently that you won't even be aware that 20% of the deductions taken off your paycheque every week ended up making it all possible.

This isn't just something that can be waved off with the tagline that it's been happening forever. There is no time like the present for you to speak out for peace.

ok - help, please. I've just spent 25 minutes I'll never get back looking for Bowen Island and yahoo maps thinks it's in English Bay, while mapquest tells me it's in Whistler. I'm just curious.

well......whistler is CLOSE. let's see....we are in howe sound, and a 20 minute ferry ride from horseshoe bay, which is the most western part of west vancouver.

if you were to take the ferry from horseshoe bay over to nanaimo on vancouver island you'd pass us.

does that help?

from the east and south side of the island we can see west van and the ubc endowment lands. from the west and north side we can see the sunshine coast (gibsons, where 'the beachcombers' was shot).
