Learning to safely intervene is a skill, and an important one. “You can stand beside the person being targeted and let them know that you’re here for them. You can choose to walk away with them from the situation so that they don’t have to walk away alone.” #DifferentTogether twitter.com/humanrights4BC…

Wow. Tens of thousands of volunteers just got thrown under the bus. #bcpoli https://t.co/oi8lIsj05B Quoted tweet from @toddstonebc: Today, Selina Robinson was asked about community gaming grants funding. Question: “Could grants be impacted in the future?” Her answer: “Hard to know. I have no answer for what might happen next year.” Not good enough – people deserve funding certainty now more than ever. #bcpoli https://t.co/TXL9CeX7lp

That’s very troubling news for hundreds of arts, sports, culture, kids services and other non profits across B.C. (this program is $140M – less than the cost overruns brought on by the NDP’s sweetheart construction deals with its building trade donors) twitter.com/toddstonebc/st…
