Crystal Meth: Coming to Green Map Near You!

PEJ News - Derek M. Book - I was taking my daughter to a playgroup at a local YMCA, and they had a "Green Map" on the wall. It was a neat map which showed all the positive aspects of a community, such as "eco-spiritual places," and "Organic Produce Location," along with special wildlife and cycling trails. Looking at this colourful document, I was struck by how powerful geography is. One would think by looking at this map that Victoria is a peaceful, ecologically sensitive, and generally wonderful place to live. I can safely say that Victoria is one of the nicest places I've lived in, but my consciousness shares this idealic fantasy with other more sinister facts.

PEJ News
- Gregory Hartnell - The Edith Stein Society recently hosted an extremely controversial American right wing biographer of Pope John Paul II here in the city. The event, while ignored by the media generally, has precipitated a heated discussion on the internet about the credibility of the man in Catholic circles.

Bear Mountain Deal Draws First Nation Criticism

UBIC
- ?Bluntly put, the talks have been completely flawed and dysfunctional. The Tsartlip leadership did not have the opportunity to report, consult and seek instruction from their members on a consistent and ongoing basis. In short, the Band?s negotiators were muzzled,? said Grand Chief Phillip. ?Tsartlip was never really allowed to advance their concerns around total preservation of the sacred cave or raising the fundamental issues of spiritual rights.?

Bandaids

PEJ News
- Derek Book - Boy, what a tricky situation Victoria has gotten into. There are not enough emergency beds for the homeless here, and the street population is growing steadily. While 40 new shelter beds will be added soon, and 50 permanent housing arrangements are in the works, these simply will not address the sheer number of homeless that huddle in doorways, or set up tents in park bushes. As we face a cold and wet winter, we have some tough choices to make as a city.

Should Corporations Have the Right to Vote?

PEJ NEWS ~ Loren Duncan ~ Director ~ Area 'E'- Cowichan Station/Sahtlam/Glenora ~ In my three terms as an elected local government official this basically fascist notion of corporate emancipation...or votes, has arisen twice from the Town of Lake Cowichan , then Burns Lake and now from Lumby. Before my time it was also brought forward by others. It has always been defeated after raucous debate on the floor...but who knows? The fascists are gathering strength more and more so across the land.

The Geography of Homelessness

PEJ News
- Derek Book - It would be very hard to live on the streets in Canada now, at least from what I can see here in Victoria. Every nook and crannie of every street downtown has been gated, locked, or is patrolled by security guard companies. It seems that many business owners and municipalities are taking a more active role, cementing up sleeping spots, and using any creative method they can to prevent "undesirables" (what a word) from "polluting" the landscape.

PEJ News - Julie Muir - August 29, 2006:  Animals in Victoria have a new "Friend" and some stronger support now that local activist Dave Shishkoff is starting a satellite chapter for Friends of Animals, an animal advocacy group based out of the States.  Dave was only joking when he suggested to the organization's president that they should expand into Canada, after refusing an offer to be interviewed for a position in Connecticut.  But Priscilla Feral took him seriously, creating the opportunity for Dave to work on local campaigns for animal rights which will be relevant to Victoria and the Island.

Cool Aid / AIDS Vancovuer Island Volunteer Opportunity

Cool Aid and AIDS Vancouver Island are currently looking for friendly volunteers to provide Vancity customers with a small flier as they walk into the branches in Victoria and the Lower Mainland. The flier describes our ACCESS Community Health Centre project and encourages Vancity customers to vote for it so that we may receive a $1 million grant from Vancity Credit Union.

Volunteers should enjoy chatting with people and care about health services for Victoria?s inner city residents. The fliers will be distributed outdoors in front of Vancity and will require standing for several hours with short sitting breaks. An experienced sales clerk or services worker would be ideal for this volunteer position. A short training session is also required.

More volunteer positions are listed below.
