Creature of the Black Tusk

Greed, Avarice, Venality. Lesser traits of the human condition. The founder outdoor clubs who fought to create Garibaldi Provincial Park had higher motives. But, under provincial administration the founders' lofty vision has been demeaned and debased. The park today is under threat. BC Liberals and BC Parks roll out the welcome mat to commercial development while curtailing hiking and climbing access and threatening the founder outdoor club guardians with jail and heavy fines.

"Uncivil Servant" Campfire Horror Stories

Quickly cover your children's ears and eyes, for this section isn't for the faint of heart.  These horror stories will bring sheer terror to the hearts of even the most grizzled of mountaineer and hardened of prospectors.  Run to the shed as fast as you can and hide your trail building tools and chainsaw before it is too late.  Quickly close the blinds and draw the blankets over your head.  For the wrath of the raging BC Parks and Ministry of Forests and Lands Bureaucrats may soon be coming to a hiking trail near you too.

Two Quotes regarding bureaucracy:

If you are going to sin, sin against God, not the bureaucracy. God will forgive you but the bureaucracy won't.

Hyman Rickover

“In our time... a man whose enemies are faceless bureaucrats almost never wins. It is our equivalent to the anger of the gods in ancient times. But those gods you must understand were far more imaginative than our tiny bureaucrats. They spoke from mountaintops not from tiny airless offices. They rode clouds. They were possessed of passion. They had voices and names. Six thousand years of civilization have brought us to this.”
