HAPPY CANADA DAY 2022 FROM SHHHH! DIGITAL MEDIA! A Quick Note Nothing on Shhhh! Digital Media is produced in British Columbia, however, having been to British Columbia a few times in my life, I can honestly say it is one of my favourite places in Canada. It seems that the cult that attempts to steal the credit for my stories and writing, and at times, my own identity, have someone in Surrey BC, who is claiming the credit for my stories and writing. However, I can assure you that I don't live or work in Surrey, BC and never have. I am letting you, my loyal readers, know that I Brian Joseph Johns, the author of The Butterfly Dragon and A Lady's Prerogative: The Yearning And The Learning, live and work in 200 Sherbourne Street Suite 701, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Also, my current photograph is at the bottom of this post and every post on . I do occasionally use a VPN from my web browser when I need privacy to thwart attempts by local neighbours to steal

Great Throne Speech For Canada And Happy Thanksgiving To Those Celebrating...

Happy Thanksgiving To All Those Celebrating In November

To all of my readers south of the border, I'd like to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. I'm very grateful for your readership and for Canada's American and Mexican neighbours. Please continue to ensure that liberty and freedom of conscience remain at the forefront of your ideals.

Our problems in this world are solved via cooperation, not stalking, bullying or forced coercion and any ideology that builds its foundations on that platform will be sure to fail, and more likely devour itself in the absence of those it preys upon.

The Speech From The Throne very much reflects my own sentiment, especially with regard to challenges like climate change and sustainability and certainly our future here in Canada. Despite having celebrated Thanksgiving in October (as is our custom), I'm grateful that what I know and love about Canada, America, Mexico and the rest of the world is built on values of free thought, free speech (responsibly so, as is Canada's way), free expression, good conscience and the liberty to pursue one's own path in life in accordance with the laws and rights we've agreed upon so as to navigate the compromise between our differences, regardless of our beliefs. 

Religion can be a wonderful yardstick for the self evaluation of one's own spiritual journey, so long as it never becomes the means to enforce any specific journey upon others outside of one's own self. We all have the right to our belief, including Atheism and any other neo-pagan concepts - whatever they may be, and that right should never be infringed upon by the enforcement of the rules of any other religion upon a person.

Perhaps in the aftermath of this very changed world, we'll learn to overcome the means that have kept us polarized to unproductive extremity for so long and move forward with the common ground that we do have.

Thank you Canada for the great Throne Speech, and a most Happy Thanksgiving to America and all of those celebrating it in like.

Brian Joseph Johns
