AFN Townhall + Land You Love

I enjoyed watching the livestream of the AFN's Town Hall, and the conversation between Thomas Mulcair and those who came with questions & comments. Still listening... Perry Bellegarde... informed decisionmaking...

new blogs

Two new blogs to bring to your attention: 

the first, a celebration of our local collective, the Aboriginal Writers Collective West Coast. Watch this site for a review of past accomplishments and occasional updates, showcase of work from collective members, and links to the blogs and sites of participating artists.

second, a new blog for my own whimsical thoughts and artistic impulses, joanne arnott too.

Here I am at Queen Charlotte City library, posing beside a poster that features a book that i wrote, another that i edited, and two more by friends: a happy find!
