We hail from the heartbeat of the Bulkley Valley we are the “People of the Wa Dzun Kwuh River (Bulkley River) all part of the Bulkley-Morice watershed, and stretch as far east as the Lakes District (Burns Lake) and we are all about what happens in OUR communities, so this website is about us, and our people, not just aboriginal, its about all of us. And no we are not on the cancel culture bus and or implying we need any name changes.
We are in fact living at “Ground Zero” on Wet’suwet’en Territory. We are your source of what is going on here on Wet’suwet’en lands.
First a bit of history, we took over a website called JLS Report. mostly on account of the audience that it catered to, locals in the Bulkley Valley. Despite the incredible conspiracy theories some people dream up, the change of name had nothing to do with that of a movie character Jonathan Livingston Seagull. Although for a local blogger it might have been a fun theme, our goal was to provide local facts supplied to us by local people. It was a simple and natural conclusion that the name JLS Report did not fit what we were doing. So the search for a more appropriate name started and BC North sounded pretty accurate to us. Next we lined up with several dozen people (many of them are Wet’suwet’en matriarchs), and we showed the world that there is a lot of difference between local events and the hysteria driven agenda of a bunch of radical anarchists.
Our theme since our inception has been “And now for the rest of the story” as a long time fan of Paul Harvey, we drew a sharp parallel with the mainstream media telling us only one side of the story, while we were living the other side of the story. In Dec 2018 we decided it was time to tell, the rest of the story, with that our journey began and here we are today with well over half a million site visits. People wanting to know the rest of the story.
“The Rest of the Story was a Monday-through-Friday radio program originally hosted by Paul Harvey. Beginning as a part of his newscasts during the Second World War and then premiering as its own series on the ABC Radio Networks on May 10, 1976, The Rest of the Story consisted of stories presented as little-known or forgotten facts on a variety of subjects with some key element of the story (usually the name of some well-known person) held back until the end.”
First I want to thank our readers for making this website the most read (Non Commercial) and non funded website in Northern BC. We are now getting close to 3/4 million website visits. Thank you very much for making this happen. Nobody within the industry knows who we are, we are anonymous, they cannot influence our writing, we write what we believe is the truth, we do not allow others to dictate those terms to us.
In desperate attempt to discredit our website on social media, those people who never challenge what we say, or challenge the evidence we presented they now seem to want to make the erroneous claim that we are pretending to be aboriginal. SERIOUSLY? No where on this website have we ever claimed to be male, female or cross gender, or black, white, or yellow, or even purple. These goons are so desperate they converted the meaning of the word anonymous to pretendian. Get a life kids. We knew from the start that telling the truth was going to hurt, mostly those using aboriginal status in hopes of cashing in on a free ride.
In northwest British Columbia Eco-Radicals are backed by a “billion dollar” American smear campaign to shut down its competition in our part of the province. This is worse than David vs Goliath they are using our own citizens against us.
They are like a well oiled Mafia, hiding as dozens of organizations pretending they care about our environment and our salmon.
There are a lot of good reasons for a writer to share their name, its a good way to earn a living if you get traffic high enough that advertising can add to your income, or other writing contracts can end up as a good sideline. Not for me though, I am a grandpa, and a story teller, no income needed, its a compulsive need to share the truth, or as my wife would say, an obsession to share the truth. It’s not that we have not had offers, we get offers almost every month but they want me to use my birth name.
We do have one major advantage over most of the commercial press, we are pure born and raised local, plus we are very well connected to the diverse residents living in the Bulkley Valley, with many contacts and friends living between Prince George including every town and city and village through to Haida Gwaii,
The truth can often result in a withdrawal of advertising revenue, and or lawsuits if they see that you have money they can bleed off. Another good reason to remain anonymous is safety, when you expose the truth, you end up with angry people, and that also can result in some nasty consequences. Another good reason is your children, or as is in my case even grand children, who become the targets of unscrupulous people.
We chose “Two Feathers” as our pseudonym, there is a story behind this name Two Feathers, in the Wet’suwet’en culture if ever you get a nickname, you get stuck with it for life. I was once told I will never make it to chief, I would never get more than “Two Feathers” so here we are. “Natni bita” in Wet’suwet’en.
Recently we have people claiming Two Feathers is or is not Wet’suwet’en, they wish to redirect your attention away from the facts we posted, no where on our website did we ever say Two Feathers is, or even is not Wet’suwet’en, So they are just inventing an excuse to avoid talking about the truth posted on this website. When we said anonymous, we meant it, we refuse to identify the voices who dare to speak up, because the only reason on their part is trying to silence the truth, if they know who they can attack, they will, not face to face, but as in criminal actions, hit and run like the cowards they are.
We do have a research team that is 100% Wet’suwet’en, many are wing chiefs or higher in status, plus a group of non Wet’suwet’en researchers as well, so if you have an issue with us, it should be about what are facts and what is incorrect, we are and always have been open to correction.
(We added the color text colour and font, to highlight the false claims made by detractors in social media.)
In summery, maybe its due to not being rich, it gives me more time to reflect on growing up here, being neither rich or poor, but content and willing to share the truth to the best of my recollections and fight for our community as a whole as opposed to propping up one group over another.
It does help if your poor and make nothing from writing, it keeps litigation at bay as they will end up paying their own bills if they cannot bleed your wallet, plus being poor makes much more time available to share your stories with a younger generation.
That said, we will leave it there.
NOTICE: We do not own the web domain (https://www.jlsreport.com/) we have copyright to its contents, but the website is an illegal copy of a website we closed when we opened BC-North. We cannot correct update or alter any content on that website and as such are not responsible for its existence.
Many people have asked us what we will be doing with the website after pipeline completion. In reply, I am sure that those radicals who we have been exposing for the last few years will claim they had us shut down. No they did not, it costs money to keep going, that is the only factor that matters. So we will make it clear, we plan to shut down once we feel this website is no longer needed. In large part its also a team decision, if or not everyone on board wants to keep going.
When this project is completed, there also comes the opportunity for healing, if the will to do so exists. So there you have it, if there are articles you wish to save, best do so now. We will also investigate the cost of archiving this website for those who wish to preserve history. How soon will this happen, possibly some time in 2023 to 2024. I know there will always be some moron claiming they shut us down or had us shut down, that is why we are announcing the ending to our website far in advance. There is a lot of evidence published on our website, you might want to make a personal copy of it before its gone.
Meanwhile our goal is to reach over 1 million visitors, to have shared the truth with over 1 million people, not a bad goal for a tiny local blog.
