We meet in public in the Atrium in the main branch of the Vancouver Public Library, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm, next to the Blenz coffee. (despite the mice!) (private joke) (well not so private if you've ever sat in the Atrium...)
We meet to discuss the issues we raise on our blog, and to have the opportunity of learning from the personal experience of others who may or may not agree with our point of view. There's a far different degree of understanding to be obtained through personal conversation, than what can be attained through written communication.
This point was definitely underscored at last week's meeting, where we were joined by two members of France's Blue Revolution, abroad here in BC on their summer holiday. It's one thing to read about what's going on over there, quite another to sit and talk and listen to someone struggling to keep their business afloat despite the penurious taxes, the anti-business mindset of the bureaucratic elite, and the outrageous street crime the gauche dirigistes have allowed to become unleashed throughout that nation.
We think we have it bad, but we don't have to legitimately worry about our car going up in smoke..! It was sobering to meet with people who do...
So whether you're just visiting or regularly in town, you're welcomed to come and join us, to help discover if there is something you can do to forestall such decay from taking root here in Canada... more than it already has.
In solidarity with the liberty-seeking citizens of France, we wear blue scarves, as they do, symboling our shared objectives, no matter the nation: a clear sky, an untroubled horizon.
