  1. Hello CBC news tip , there’s bunch of flyers posted on Broadway Station skytrain at Broadway and Commercial street in Vancouver regarding a senior been cheated , deprived as well as abused by a dentist at Broadway Dental Station by the name of Dr Douglas Liu alias Dough Liu . Are we all included ? By the way is a good example of bigotry !

  2. The dangers with wild fires in BC are the Green Party who will attempt to intruce the carbon tax to other provinces in Canada , and if you use an air conditioner in you home when carbon is at a extremely high level you reduce the amount of breathable air in your home .

If you have lung disease you should have HEPA filters in almost each of your yours rooms, especially when you are having difficulty breathing. Make sure when you buy a HEAP filter that buying replacement filters will be affordable and available easily.

  4. …..its horrible – i lived / worked in Northern Alberta / BC for years – every summer theres a major fire somewhere …you wake up in the morning with this burning sensation in your throat + all day and night the smell of burning fire is everywhere – you cant escape it…it ruins the season..you cant wait for the crisp clean air of winter.
