Meet Mark Rowswell -- a.k.a. 'Dashan' -- a 48-year-old, non-Asian Canadian who, for more than the last two decades, has been a national performance and media celebrity in the People's Republic of China.
This week will be filled with really big moments for both Enbridge and Kinder Morgan in BC. Today, Kinder Morgan announced that they have finally filed their application to build a new tar sands oil pipeline along the route of the Trans Mountain pipeline. On Thursday or Friday this week, it is suspected that we may finally have a decision from the National Energy Board (NEB) on the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline. Both Kinder Morgan and Enbridge really have become Harper's pipelines. But Enbridge and Kinder Morgan do not have the permission of the people of B.C. The Harper government and these companies still have the opportunity to do the right thing and listen to the people. Please pledge your opposition and end the year by reminding Stephen Harper who really is in charge.

Not everyone seemed to share my excitement. At least not in a positive way. Twitter and Facebook seemed to explode with negative comments before the first commercial break.
The creativity of scientists across the world continues to astonish me. In this week's episode the team and I investigate new technologies that are going to improve our lives by making things easier, more efficient and much faster.
I am forced into a dangerous melodrama between me and my loved one -- my television.
When I read that Romeo Dallaire had been in a car accident on Parliament Hill just outside of East Block, I wondered if it was due to fatigue. I have never known him to be other than fully occupied and frequently exhausted in the course of his heavy schedule. Romeo has a lot more than just memories to fight. As he explained this week, he fights depression and remains medicated for PTSD. But he has turned his pain into a purpose, and in so doing he can get up every day.
