"Lynn Valley B&B encounters the wrath of Vandeman"
http://www.bclocalnews.com/community/105357658.html

The following is referencing a letter Vandeman wrote to a little known
bed & breakfast owner decrying his marketing towards mountain bike
riders.

**quote**
For a laugh, Knowles decided to forward the letter to a couple friends
at local mountain bike shops, and posted it to the blog on his
business’ website. On Oct. 3, the day before Vandeman’s letter
arrived, the Lynn Valley Bed and Breakfast website had four visits. On
Oct. 4, they had 552 hits. And on Oct. 5, 675. In total, their website
has received 3,300 hits from 54 countries.

“He hasn’t done his cause any good or bad, but he’s done my cause a
lot of good,” said Knowles.

“I offered him free accommodation as a thank you. I doubt he’ll take
me up on it but the offer stands.”

Vandeman probably won't take up that offer if Canadian customs is
doing their job..

from...
http://www.wikihow.com/Travel-to-Canada-with-a-Felony-Charge

"Do your research beforehand. Despite some internet information out
there, a criminal conviction does not automatically bar you from
entry; however, it can make it very difficult. Canada requires that
all persons convicted apply for rehabilitation before entry.
Rehabilitation considers that five years have passed since probation
or parole sentences have finished or since an incident for which you
were not charged (but may still be on your record)."

"Be prepared to pay.
In order to file for Rehabilitation certification, Canada can impose
an application fee from $200 to over $1,000. The amount you will pay
is tied into the seriousness of your conviction."

Given Mike was age 67 when recently arrested, plus he must serve
whatever sentence his is given, tack on another five years, plus
another year for processing.. He'll be well into his seventies before
he can clear Canadian customs.

A bed and breakfast that caters to mountain bikers is beneath contempt. It
is difficult to say what the ultimate good or bad is of a message that is
communicated to 3,300 souls, even if most of them are slobs. Mr. Vandeman
has accomplished exactly what he wished to accomplish, which is to get his
message as widely disseminated as possible. Many mountain bikers have no
idea how the rest of the world regards them. Now they do.

It doesn't matter what you think, Ed.

The B&B that was the target of Vandeman's misplaced outrage has seen an
increase in interest from 4 visitors to over 3,000 visitors. Surely some of
those have booked stays, which is good for the business involved. YOU won't
be placing your reservations anytime soon because you despise anything that
remotely resembles fun, but clearly the masses are reacting with enthusiasm.

I'm certain that Vandeman did not wish to increase the patronage of the
establishment, therefore by any measure, his message is a dud from his
perspective. Mike's message served to ATTRACT visitors, clearly the
anti-message he intended.

Mr. Vandeman does not give a damn about the establishment. All he cares
about is getting his message to as wide an audience as possible. The
business owner played right into his hands. At least an additional 3000
persons, some of whom are slobs no doubt, now know that mountain biking is a
despised activity only engaged in by asshole-idiots.

Nothing on Usenet is admissible to anyone who has any brains. Usenet is the
province of asshole-idiots like you and me.

Be thankful no one takes Usenet seriously or else you might be getting a
visit from the Mossad. As it is, you just have me around to kick your dumb
ass.

ASAIK yes it is, as a publicly published writing. Provenance would
have to be proved of course, as the recent rash of fake Mikeys proves,
but anything published under his name prior to the events is
admissible into the record to establish intent and premeditation.

Fun is for everybody. If you actually had any kids instead of devoting your
life to hating them, you'd appreciate that.

They are too busy with false flag operations. However, it would not be
surprising if they used violence to silence negative public opinion.

Fun is for kids. An adult trying to have fun is the most pathetic sight in
the world.

The only kids I hate are the grown up kind who ride mountain bikes on hiking
trails. I also hate slobs who drive their motor vehicles off road.

You probably do not like our own intelligence services either. If Hitler had
been assassinated early in his career a lot of trouble could have been
avoided.

Your positive opinion of the Palestinian terrorists is what is going to get
us all killed. It is actually a form of treason. It is the chief reason why
I hate liberals as much as I do.
