Bless him! Good to hear Harper has not completely succeeded in squeezing the humanity out of every Canadian soul.

What a great gesture towards the people of the Downtown Eastside. I have every reason to believe that everyone will be fed with the salmon because it is freely given to those that need it by Joshua Duncan and the others of RA Roberts Fishing in Campbell River. This gift is part of First Nations teaching on the importance of sharing with the people.

I can attest to the great feeling that Joshua Duncan must be feeling. I buy some groceries on a fairly regular basis for a homeless man named Duncan who lives in some woods in my area. Normally I don't see him in the grocery store but as I went into the store, he was making his way to the door. He reached over and gave me a big hug and he always smiles or waves when he sees me. It is a rare pleasure to know that you have made a difference in someone's life like that.

JD --- Indeed Harper has not succeeded in squeezing the humanity out of our souls. I know I will not give him the pleasure, and there are many, many more of us that plan to vote Harper and his harlots out of office in 2015. Maybe we'll be able to squeeze some soul into him.
