To The Editor:

In the words of Greta Thunberg: “how dare you pretend you are fit to govern!” For most of the last thirty-two years we have lived in this community, one or sometimes two of you political parties have held office at a provincial and federal level. Yet the best you can do in this election is point fingers at each other and make empty promises that...

To the Editor,

The Fridays For the Future youth strike last Friday was inspiring. Around the world, millions of youth and their supporters marched and demanded real climate action from the adults. By ‘real action’ I assume the youth mean action that avoids the forecasted global catastrophe and delivers the Paris Accord goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees C...

To The Editor:

Any day now the BCUC will rule on whether rural Nelson hydro customers will be paying more for power than city customers.

There is a clause in the Community Charter that says councillors can be held personally financially accountable. Might this apply to what I am presenting below?

Nelson hydro's bylaw says they will not purchase...

Dear Mr. Tassone & Mr. Price,

As citizens of the Castlegar community, we wanted to communicate our concern about the delicate global warming situation. We think the city of Castlegar and its council could and should make a difference, and set an example for many Canadians in committing to the West Kootenay EcoSociety 100% Renewable Kootenays.

Dear Wayne Stetski and Abra Brynn:

I'm part of a group of people who are profoundly concerned about climate change. Many of us worked on the proportional representation campaign, and have been involved with the Green Party or the NDP or both in the past.

I implore you to put the climate crisis ahead of partisanship...

To The Editor:

I find the reasons for the glyphosate ban being forwarded by the RDCK bothmisguided and misleading.

Forests Minister Doug Donaldson stated in 2018 that reforested areas were being sprayed to kill back broadleaf species and give conifers a chance to establish themselves. He further stated that the Ministry is producing hardier conifers that...

Dear Minister Heyman,

On behalf of the City of Rossland’s council, I am writing to you to express our support for dissolving the Jumbo Glacier Resort Municipality. The recent Court of Appeals ruling stating that no significant progress has been made on the development has given the Province a golden opportunity to re-assess the project and make some common-sense...

To The Editor:

In the lead up to the 2019 federal election MP Wayne Stetski talks a good line on climate change, but can we rely on him to oppose BC minority NDP and federal Liberal government fossil fuel expansion policies?

When Burnaby-South NDP MP Kennedy Stewart was arrested alongside Green Party Leader Elizabeth May, in opposition to the...

As the owner of MountainHigh Lighting in downtown Castlegar, I urge the city to pursue any initiative in renewable energy and positive environmental change.

We have been leaders in the advancement of LED lighting in this region and strive to support forward thinking citizens in their search for energy efficient...

To The Editor:

Wish: federal parties' political hierarchies take first steps towards a cross-party climate ”war cabinet”, as suggested in the Green Party’s "Mission Possible”.

They model working together to strategically capture more seats and proportional representation, in order to deal with the Climate Crisis and ultimately also the generational...
