Del Turner's Home Desk

...a collection of the views and interests of Del Turner of Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada

Kamloops, British Columbia, is a city of about 80,000 people located on the dry interior plateau of the most Western province of Canada. Two railways and two trans-Canada highways pass through the city. Cattle ranches, logging, a wood pulp mill and an adjacent copper mine are base industries with transportation and tourist services along withy retail sales employing most of the citizens. A university (Twin Rivers) is also located in Kamloops and it attracts many foreign students, especially from China.

That the public persists in the notion that cultural and social change can be legislated, that political action changes society, is regrettable, especially as the intentions of those who do act politically are more often than not admirable. Like the flea on the chariot wheel, in spite of shouts to the contrary, the political activist does not author social change: substantive social change only occurs as the result of the march of real world physical events.
