I am so looking forward to amalgamating our two families, James. Sharing wives and kids, pets, homes, cars, money...gosh, everything. I mean, who could imagine a better outcome? Some people might argue, "but don't you have different histories, cultures, identities, purposes, priorities, characteristics?" And what do we say to them, Jim? We say: "Piffle." And we say: "You're conveniently overlooking the operating efficiencies, the cost-savings, the, the upsides."
Yes, I've read a lot of the Canadian post-municipal amalgamation studies and literature confirming that imagined efficiencies and cost savings--one of the principal spurs for pro-amalgamators--rarely happen, but who believes those biased reports written by people who want amalgamation to fail? Besides, we'll do it better, and different from all the others. Those people don't understand that we have the amalgamation idea in our minds, and that we are planning to take the idea that's up in our minds and make it real in the world. After all, that process has a long history of success.
Gosh, as I write, I'm beginning to lose my commitment to amalgamating our two families. It suddenly occurs to me that the legibility of my group "story" might be more important than I realized, and that maybe all of my energy as a participant should be based on an ever-greater investment in that story; and that, to that end, smaller is better, and an aid to coherence and the accessibility of meaning (which is elusive under the best of circumstances).
Yeah, more I think about it, the more I believe I shoud just hoe my own row.
Hi David - The BC CDC follows a rigorous conservation status ranking process that is based primarily on the NatureServe ranking system. The purpose of BC's red, blue, and yellow lists is widely misunderstood. While these lists are a helpful tool for planners and land managers, being on any of these lists does not confer any protection; they simply indicate a species' or ecological community's degree of risk of extinction (i.e., conservation ranking). More information can be found at https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/environment/plants-animals-ecosystems/conservation-data-centre/explore-cdc-data/status-ranks.
