Will it all be for naught?

will it all be for naught?

I’ve spent the last few years working this blog in an attempt to share my thoughts, opinions and ideas with primarily the people of my community here in the ‘beautiful’ Crowsnest Pass. In four days time, we will see if it has been wasted time, or not?

If my time indeed has been wasted, my work has been for naught, then I doubt very much that I will continue to waste it anymore and will instead shut this baby down, and pursue other interests instead. If it hasn’t been wasted then the future is our oyster as they say, and then the real work begins. Work that will transform our community into one that can realize the great potential that lies within, while at the same time finally bringing peace and harmony to our valley.

I don’t fool myself, that with the insurmountable disadvantages I have suffered from during this campaign, worse of which was my inability to reach the greater masses here with my message of hope in my ‘middle-way’ platform, that those I have spoken out against as being a real threat and danger to our community will ultimately be victorious. I believe it will take a miracle or some sort of cosmic awakening of the masses to be otherwise.

But you never know, sometimes miracles do happen, sometimes people come to a realization that what we have isn’t what we want and what we had before isn’t what we want to go back to either.

So do enough people know about the ‘middle-way’ option, I don’t know? Do enough people still have this negative image of me ingrained in their minds by the likes of the Pass Herald and their minions, I don’t know that either? With respect to this latter question, I have this to say “Don’t judge me by my past, I don’t live there anymore”…. in fact, I never did.

On election day we’ll all find out what our future holds for us. In the meantime, all one can do is do all what one can do to make it a future of our making, rather than one of theirs.



Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.

    Yes I would not blame you. You have spent a lot of time keeping people up to date.
    I think your blog would really be missed though.

    Good luck John. Regardless if you win or lose, thank you for your time.
    I have spoken with a lot of people about the election. For the first time I am hearing people say they have personally researched the candidates. BP seems to be your only competition. He seems to have a lot of support, but there is also a lot of concern over whether or not he will be a strong leader or will just be led. People here are desperate for a strong leader that will be transparent and not afraid to tell it like it is. I am hearing a lot of people say they would not consider voting for you in the past but plan to vote for you this time. People are finally seeing how long and hard you have fought for us. Of course I have not spoken with the “silent majority” as they are “silent.”
