Re: “Sled Dogs gets Whistler Film Festival world premiere

"A manager of Howling Dog Tours" this is how the local paper makes him accountable - The name of the villain that massacred 54 innocent dogs is BOB FAWCETT and he lives amongst you!
And to answer the question about where the WSDC dogs went to....many responsible caring people worked very hard to make sure they were placed into loving homes. For a lot of these dogs it took months (and some years) and some have yet to overcome the terrors they live through prior to WSDC taking over. I had the honor of taking two of the seniors into my home and loved them until it was time to say goodbye. They were the sweetest dogs once they learned I wasn't going to harm them and they were allowed to live INSIDE and on the couches and not chained. Not ever chained again. We should never forget the horrors that happened so it is never repeated again. And we should all know the name of evil and remember it. Bob Fawcett.

Re: “Sled Dogs gets Whistler Film Festival world premiere

Six years after the Whistler massacre of at least 56 sled dogs on April 21 and 23, 2010; the guy that basically walked away from the crimes can resume his business activities. Where is he now?

The Liberals claimed that BC would have the best provincial animal protection following the massacre of the sled dogs. However, the animal abuses continue.

The Sled Dog Task Force lied about the sled dog slaughter being isolated when it was proven that cruelties are inherent. At the one day closed meeting the Minister Terry Lake denied Lifeforces request to have a moment of silence for all of those who have died. Was this task force formed to protect sled dogs or the sled dog industry?

The Liberal government then formed a Mushers' Association to obviously protect the industry not the dogs. The new guidelines permitted the continuance of 24/7 chaining, inhumane shooting and all the other abuses. The Lifeforce Report: The Case Against Dog Sled Industries and recommendations were not implemented.

Outdoor Adventures that owned the murdered dogs donated their business to Whistler Sled Dog Co. then that shut down. Where did all the dogs end up? And where do all the industry dogs who are bred and bred and bred to get the best ones finally end up?

The Lifeforce petition was to the three Whistler Dog Sled Companies, Outdoor Adventures, Whistler Tourism, and Premier Christy Clark.
Stop Whistler Sled Dog Cruelty Industry! Lifeforce also started Stop Whistler Sled Dog Cruelty Industry! Facebook

The governments can truly start getting tough on animal abusers by banning the sled and race dog abuse industry!

Re: “Sled Dogs gets Whistler Film Festival world premiere

Attorneyatlaw- what are you grubbing for some tourism clients? Only thing yellow here is the strip down your back, where you show how gutless you are to stand up against animal exploitation. I'm sure you could weasel some legal-eagle argument if Levitt's article did somehow insult a potential big money fat cat. Far be it that people be able to express critical insights and challenge the glossy pamphlets in the lobby of the big money hotels.
You must really think your big words intimidate or impress people. They don't. And your crackerjack baloney arguments don't scare anyone with an ounce of understanding of the freedoms imparted upon film-makers and other people communicating about important moral issues. So I guess you can figure out what to do with your LLB-and don't forget to wipe, because if you're spilling your apparent expertise here, it's probably because you don't have a meaningful outlet to ply your trade elsewhere.

Re: “Sled Dogs gets Whistler Film Festival world premiere

In my opinion, Ms. Levitt's film is yellow journalism at its worst. As I see it, she has conflated a situation involving a hoarder in Willow, Alaska with some reputable dog mushers who take very good care of their dogs. Worse yet, she misrepresented herself and her intentions in order to film reputable mushers and then to show them in a false light. Perhaps that is how it is done in Canada, but in my personal view, its shows a lack of integrity. Personally, if I were in the shoes of some of the reputable mushers she appears to have misled, I'd be suing this woman and her backers for defamation, fraud in the inducement, and false light privacy and would get an injunction. Following her logic, nobody should be allowed to have children because there are some bad parents out there -- and therefore all parents are bad. Ms. Leavitt should suffer the financial consequences of her conduct (i.e., fraud in the inducement), which is, in my opinion, tortious.

Re: “Letters to the Editor for the week of November 24th

No one invited you to any sauna meathead. Are you serious? Last thing we need is some neo-nazi bootlicker icking out the ladies. But listen - we seem to have strayed from the topic significantly.

I take it then that you think this climate thing is over blown a bit? Please expand on that.

Re: “Letters to the Editor for the week of November 24th

Lol, funny. I have to use a handle on here as the crypto Liberal agenda would deem me a violent racist and subject me to finding out my IP address and having CSIS triangulate on my position. Glad you brought up my mom. She died yesterday. Not even kidding. Enjoy the bears at the sauna, I've got cubs to protect from Christy Clark and Trudeau.

Re: “Climate change and Trump's America

I also want to point out that you spell industrialization with an S. Do you happen to be an anti-Brexit ex-Brit globalist crypto Liberal/Green Party advocate perchance? Here in Canada, we spell it with a Z, mate. Or is it bloke?

Re: “Climate change and Trump's America

Totally vapid opinion, anchovie pizza. Tell your "transcendent" climate change politics to the workers who are going to be jobless in that sector and to the climate taxes and people trying to drive to work in the coming years, which only serve the crypto Liberal globalist agenda, which pollutes even MORE with tourism both foreign and domestic which we have seen first hand in the sea to sky and its ramifications. I drink bottled water and smoke medical marijuana every chance I get. You see that glowing orb of fire up in the sky above your head when it's not raining here in BC? That is the Sun. Do you think it might have anything to do with temperatures on the Earth, which historically go drastically up and down over time? Humanity went ALL in on industrialization. The crypto Liberal agenda is to promote what were previously left wing ideaologies like gay rights and climate action and runaway immigration to the selfie generation and new immigrants to Canada with globalism in order to create a class society where the rich will continue to pollute and the REAL middle class and poor will get even poorer. Wake up! You have been deceived by the mainstream media, anchovie pizza. It's time to put some Canadian bacon back on this little crust of the Earth we call Canada and take OUR country back from the Elite!

You sure? I was looking forward to asking you if your mother really named you Teddy Bear!

My god that would be some sense of humour, if a tad cruel, which likely accounts for your personality.....

Re: “Cutting through confusion with wisdom

In this world, you can be a passive observer of your reality (Buddha) or an active participant (Christ). Given our current circumstances in Canada due to globalism and the crypto Liberal agenda, I think I will be whichever one Joan of Arc was for France. Answer: NOT a passive observer or globalist Buddha but a protectionist Christ.

Oh my mistake. I can't imagine how i managed to read too much between the lines. My friends are disappointed too.

However this is your lucky day! I can come to you. I have a sauna scheduled for 1600 hour today so I'll drop into the IGA starbucks just before that.

Don't keep me waiting, if you would be so kind

Re: “Letters to the Editor for the week of November 24th

Im not threatening violence. Since when is it violent to say something to someone's face? Oh yeah, that's right! It's violent since the crypto Liberal Orwellian double speak was introduced into our vernacular as part of the globalist agenda. I go to the Starbucks by the Canadian Tire when I'm in Starbucks. You now know how to come say hi to me and state your opinions. I'm there every second Friday of the month around 1130 to 130 in the afternoon.

Hurry up. I'm sitting in Starbucks right now. You hustle your impressive jailhouse tats over here right now and I'll introduce you to a few of my forestry worker friends, who average considerably heavier than any piddly 200 lbs.

They indicate to me, gleefully, that they'd like to explain to you the standard etiquette for civil discourse on internet forums.

Out back.

by the garbage containers.

But like I said hurry up if you're interested
