Reader support enables analyses of public issues at IN-SIGHTS and keeps online almost 3,000 articles published since 2009. This is not a profit-making enterprise but is intended to encourage thoughtful examination of subjects that matter. Contributions help defray site hosting fees, computer expenses, internet costs, a myriad of worthwhile subscriptions, and various research costs.
Note to readers
Reduced activity here will continue since I am awaiting heart valve repair. The process was slightly disrupted when machinery broke down as VGH technicians tried to complete a CT scan needed before Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI). Machine problems occurred again two weeks later but the scan was done with a minor delay. Now comes the anxiety inducing wait. I am hoping it will be weeks, not months.
April 2019 marked the tenth birthday of this online site. I say thank you to regular readers who participate with comments and make these sections interesting and informative. Special thanks are due the readers who provide financial support. Without it, In-Sights would not exist today.
Thanks to readers who already provide financial support. Assistance defrays costs for research, computer equipment, internet and website maintenance. Readers enable me to deliver fact-based analyses of public issues. My entire work is funded by private citizens. If you can help, choose any amount, large or small.
Inactivity will continue
I hope to resume online participation soon but illness continues to be a problem. I regret not having had a flu shot this season because I’ve experienced the worst case in my […]
In-Sights will be inactive for a number of days over the holiday. I thank all our readers and contributors for supporting this site during 2017. In the coming year, I expect to […]
To supporters of In-Sights
The prospect of lost power and influence has financial elites gathering money to conduct unprecedented misinformation campaigns. They will be assisted by a dependent corporate media that has grown too close and comfortable with the few people making political policy in our province. For example, as I’ve pointed out repeatedly, resource industries gained billions through subsidies and tax reductions and they are willing to spend heavily to maintain those benefits. In the transition period, it will be important for citizens to ensure that all points of view are heard and evaluated, not just the views of special interests.
Where I’ve been and where I’m going
Partly by necessity, partly by need to address other matters, my focus has not recently involved In-Sights or social media. However, I am again ready to write regularly on BC politics. You will see further examinations of the asset stripping work of Liberals as they seek another term to finish hollowing out British Columbia’s economy.
Note to readers
I’ve been quieter than usual here and on social media but I am working on new reports and inquiries. My capacity has been somewhat limited recently but I’m hoping that will soon […]
In-Sights shifted to a more modern and secure platform on a new server at a new home. This is it. You will find old content at the new location but there is a […]
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Thank You to All
Thanks people for kind wishes in comments and private messages. We can hope that matters raised in alternative media and the blogosphere gain wider exposure and more complete discussion in 2015. Traditional […]

I had surgery on my left eye last December and on my right eye a week ago. The procedures went well but I must wait a while yet before new eyeglasses can […]
I’ve been absent from the blog world for a few weeks and regular readers deserve an explanation. First, I’ll describe what started this one person blogging effort more than four years ago. […]
Premier Photo Op and friends set the table
We’re back from travels and almost recovered from jet lag, or whatever ails one after an extended trip. People vacation for rest and relaxation but sometimes return feeling astonished, weary and desperately in […]
I have been investigating public health services up close and personal but expect to be heading home soon after a sojourn at Lions Gate Hospital. Blogging wll resume next week. Indeed, I […]
A personal contribution
Please excuse my very personal act but this pictures three of the people on whose behalf we now argue for a better British Columbia. Three of my grandsons. Brothers Shay, Odin and […]
