I spent many years volunteering for this organization, only to find staff hording the best food and products for themselves, really sick people.
I am now in Estonia, volunteering to help many people who really need it.
Good luck with the stealing mustard seed!

The news mentioned BC Premier Christy Clark said Victoria the capital city has a sick culture and no real people to an Ontario reporter. It must be the dirty truth when the leader slams her own capital city? As a born Victorian, I agree the whole Victoria Region is only tolerable for short vacations and not a long term place to live, if one wishes to remain happy and sane. The twisted, uptight culture, coldness, bad overall economy, stingy wages, ripping off workers, cliquey attitudes really annoys a lot of people as they flee from Victoria to Alberta when they could no longer stand the lack of BC appreciation for good workers. Victoria on its best economic day could not compete with Calgary, Edmonton and others on their worse economic day. Being stuck on Vancouver Island with no practical way out is truly horrible, like in prison.
