Peter Brunette composes and performs songs that celebrate the everyday follies of life and love, revel in the glory of the expanding universe, and stick it to the powers that be. Organisms of all ecosystems, unite! You have nothing to lose but your chain stores! An admirer of goodness, truth, and beauty—especially the feminine variety—Peter is an active member of the folk-music community in Victoria, the biggest city on the biggest island off the west coast of North America, located in the Canadian province currently known as British Columbia.
That unfortunate name may not persist much longer, though, since Peter and his friends have launched an initiative–the Cordillera Campaign—to change it to something a trifle more descriptive. After all, they argue, Britain only laid claim to this far-flung corner of the globe for thirteen years (1858-1871), or approximately 0.1 percent of the time that the land has been inhabited, and as for Columbus, he was pretty sure that no such place even existed! Want a better name? Have a listen to the campaign’s official theme song. If you like what you hear, why not join the CNBNC (Cordillerans for a Non-British Non-Columbia)? Or, at all events, sign the petition!
