This blog is meant to stimulate discussion in the Peace River Votes 2013 Facebook group. The posts will by their nature be one sided. As a voter I have a position on the issues. And I will describe that position as objectively as possible, with thorough documentation of references and sources used to arrive at my conclusions.
That does not make my position the right position. There is no right position in a democracy, only a collection of ideas that when respected and openly discussed, make for a more civil and advanced society. If you find yourself in complete disagreement with me, by all means, challenge my position. But do it respectfully. If the length of your position or response exceeds that of a typical comment, I’m happy to consider guest posts.
However, I will not publish anonymous comments. All comments are sent to me for moderation and if there is no name, it will be deleted. And even if your name is attached to a comment, if it is derogatory, defamatory, slanderous, or otherwise offensive, it will be removed. I will not edit for stance, only for decorum.
An astute observer noted that I failed to identify myself on here. An oversight on my part. My name is Tony Nickonchuk and I’ve lived in Peace River for 5 years. You can contact me below or by email at email@example.com
