Bridges for Women OnLine

Bridges for Women Society is offering an online version of the proven Bridges Employability Program for abuse survivors. Registration is now open to women who live on southern Vancouver Island and the southern Gulf Islands. The focus of the program is the development of sustainable, long-term career goals for each individual. We offer curriculum tailored to the needs of women with a history of abuse, but the curriculum is also individualized in many ways, in order to suit the goals, interests and skills of each woman in the class.

The Town Fun Forgot

Swiftsure, Driftsure... I've lived in Victoria long enough to remember what the great annual regatta used to be and mean to the locals. Sadly passed, it's another case of our little burg's (d)evolution. But this attitude extends beyond us. I wrote the below a couple years back, and but for adding details like "our" government's further downward spiral towards militaristic fascism, it still holds true.  - {lex}

Pre-Election Poll published in Victoria Street Newz (Dec/Jan 04)

http://streetnewz.communitypipe.org

Comparing this poll to others, published in the corporate mainstream media, it would appear that people have changed their minds rather significantly, or different people are being polled, or someone's lying.

PEJ News Featured in Monday Magazine

Monday:
If the pen is mightier than the sword, then the website will surely outdo all the firepower at American president George W. Bush?s command. At least that?s the hope of Alan Rycroft and the team of volunteers who put together the Victoria-based Peace, Earth and Justice News (www.pej.org), a growing online source of alternative news that has lately seen some encouraging growth? with many of its visitors coming from Bush country.

Misinformation on Health in Cuba

Letter to Times Colonist:
Mike Milke has written an interesting colum on lousy health in Cuba.  Investigative journalism, a longer trip by him (if he has gone at all) to Cuba, would disclose that contrary to Mr. Milke's beliefs we can  indeed look to Castro for ways to improve Health care.

The CRD and the housing trust fund PDF Print E-mail

The CRD and the housing trust fund

There's been some discussion, and voting, about affordable housing in the CRD, the attached story outlines who voted in which way. A trust fund is one idea, but it puts the burden back on the hard working middle class. Legislating developers to build a percentage of affordable housing with each new project is another option being discussed. The citizenry have lots of good ideas - collect more taxes from those who own, but don't live here is another idea, or why not implement a rent freeze within buildings once the mortgage is paid.

If people appreciate the importance of housing, and develop a philosophy of inclusion - recognizing that the right of all to decent shelter exceeds the right of owners and developers to grow ever richer - then many of our social ills (including drug addiction and theft) will be on the road towards greater personal and community health.
