If your talking about your guys bail out didn't happen that is the pits for Canada and mainly for B.C.

Its already tough to get money from financial institutions in B.C. its going to get even tougher

Anybody in the financial world is nervous watching the news today and people in B.C. are worried. There are so many people in B.C. living way beyond their means with 2-3 credit cards maxed out a huge house payment etc.

Who knows what is going to happen

Call me crazy, but ever since they been talking about this mess a couple weeks ago I have sold 4 machines. I don't get it. One of them wrote a check for a new 50D yesterday. Hope it keeps going.
Our truck driver said that a service station he just stoped at had a sign up refusing to take Wachovia credit cards. I heard that Citi bank just purchased them so the cards should be good. People are getting scared I guess.

Should we all refer to GR as "Reverend" Gravel Rat?

Sorry I'am not a religous man I have too many sins

For us here in B.C. the economy is slowing down its like a car with the emergency brake partially on the brakes haven't seized up yet.
