  1. Merry Christmas Norm! All the best in 2018 on a personal level. Not sure if we can expect that politically. I can be grateful, however, that I am not living in the US. An acquaintance (contract doctor) in Florida is packing up to move. Just got notice New medical $750 / $5K deductible!!! 😱 Got a contact with medical less than 1/2 in another State. Just wow! Janni


  2. You are a public treasure and I wish we could give you a medal for Christmas.
    I’d be so uninformed in my duties as a citizen without your columns.
    Thanks for your enlightenments.


  3. Truthfulness, for some reason, has become a rare commodity to be cherished. Thanks for the many gifts you made available to British Columbians this year.
    Merry Christmas to your family, Norm, and have a rewarding 2018.


  4. Merry Christmas to you and your family, Norm.

    I sense that you feel you have spoken your piece on the Hydro file. If people don’t know the issues by now, they perhaps never will.

    The NDP’s decision to continue with Site C — painful and disappointing as it was — came after deliberation of all the facts and advice they could muster. It’s a done deal, though we need to continue to be watchful of what proceeds from this point, regarding court challenges, environmental safeguards and cost over-runs.

    In the scheme of things, the changes to our voting system is a far bigger issue than Site C. If people don’t understand the issues and options, the current system will continue. I wish you all the best in helping educate us.


  5. I wish I was a millionaire (unfortunately, most days I’m not even a thousandaire): I’d get a big sock, stuff it full of hundred-dollar bills, and tell Santa to hang it on your mantle — just to be sure you continue to do the who-what-where with all the comforts and resources you could ever desire and surely deserve.

    The nights are getting shorter!

    New channel, new times, New Year. All the best to you and yours,



  6. Norm,

    Wishing you very happy and relaxed holidays!

    A heart-felt thank for all your great work on keeping British Columbians informed.
