As we so desparately need a strong consumer and public protection system in place to defend the underdogs. This in my opinon is not the right person at all. His approach to take the title of self-proclaimed expert on business. Appears to me as just another joker that gets the spotlight in the BC media and abuses it for his own personal gain. By unusal events I have met four indviduals to whom he has writen of all on separate matters. One is truely and bandit from what I saw. Two I would strongly disagree and the last I just didnt have enough to form an opinion. I got to meet these individuals directly through business happenings. How Mr. Baines who get more info than I. Well I just dont believe it. Each person request my support financially so I forced then to put any info forward I requested. They did in the hopes to get funding. It is my guess nothing was freely given to Mr. [continued below]....
..... Baines. Mr Baines resume states alot of schooling, but when I viewed I saw very little, if any practical experience. In my particular business. A person who speaks without qualification, lenghty field expertise, or the support of the vast majority in his field. Is considered a loud mouth and safety risk to all in his presence. He is quickly removed, to not prevent any risks, repremanded for his actions. It is then put back in upper management whether to let him back in the field. Usually he is not unless the company is desparate for manpower. This appears to be the case with the Vancouver Sun. Why he is allowed to continuely banter is troubling to me. In my opinion it says the fault lies above. Editor and Cheif? Patricia. Maybe it is she who enjoys the national equirer or maybe she is just tied to do so. Unlike Mr. Baines I can only offer perspect. I take a openmided approach and leave the facts to unfold themselves.

Editor, Please control your dog! (Hail Caesar Milan)

AUTHOR: anonymos - (Canada)

He is rabid, barks alot and has become a general public nusance. Maybe you should send him to doggie school before the general public is forced to put your paper and him down. I'm sure your intentions were of a helpful nature, but the fact you have let him run wild through the streets without any sort of management or a leash has become a matter of public concern and eventually a large class action lawsuit. He is biting everyone in his path. I have had no business dealings with he I would just like to see a positive ending for all parties involved including Mr. Baines. If he is the true defender of the people he should have no trouble being publicly chastised for his mistakes. If he is another phony like he claims to hunt. He will not want to lose face on the matter. Lets wait and see. Remeber Patricia you are responsible to the public for quality journalism and if what you are producing is no-fictional in nature. Is should be clearly be moved to the comic section or the list your rag as tabloid entertainment.

Kind Regards,

Your Concerned Neighbor
