On today's first birthday of Northern Insights, we've had more readers than ever before and also enjoyed a record for weekly readership this past 7 days.
I'm proud to have participated in a strong community of British Columbia bloggers. Many people have inspired me but no more than two women who set the standard for diligence and humanity: BC Mary and Laila Yuile.
When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always.
I write and edit this blog alone. I don't belong to any political party but I favour public education, efficient social programs, democratic trade unionism, free competitive markets and encouragement of owner-operated businesses. I believe all public and quasi-public servants should be subject to stringent measures of accountability and conflict prevention.
