I have begun a new blog. I want to focus attention on the impact retailer Wal-Mart has on communities, the economy, trade policy and poverty.
There is more, as you will see, an impact on local regional and national governments that is costing you and I tax dollars and some sleep.
You can check it at BIG Box Costs, the WalMart blog.
I am looking for people to join me in posting articles and information on Wal-Mart. The focus is Wal-Mart. Nothing else. Send me an email if you are interested or post a comment.
I have a long history of involvement in the social justice and workers issues and will be using my contacts in these communities to help provide some up todate opinion pieces and background material. Recent decisions by the City of Vancouver and Campbell River to say no to Wal-Mart have encouraged me to begin this blog.
Interested, contactme, provide a link, tell others about what we are doing.
