To The Editor:

On the November first weekend the Creston Curling Club held a benefit bonspiel for the Nelson Curling Club, to help Nelson pay for repairs to their ice plant.

The Bonspiel raised almost $10,000, and is a first of its kind in this area and perhaps anywhere in Canada. The Creston Club worked extremely hard using volunteers as usual to put on...

To The Editor:

To Wayne Stetski, my thanks for his service, and a piece of advice — if the NDP are afraid to call themselves socialist, as their forerunners the CCF were not, then his party does not deserve to attract support from the Liberals.

Fight for the "S word" and make it your own, not what your enemies say it is. Americans cannot comprehend nor...

To The Editor:

I had the privilege of growing up in The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program which was started by war amputee veterans. Through Operation Legacy, which is made up of members of CHAMP, we pay tribute to the veterans who founded the Association and all those who have served our country.

I have participated in Operation Legacy as far back...

To The Editor:

I was part of a cross-party team that worked to elect Jenica Atwin as the first Green MP from Fredericton. We focused all our attention on providing voters with information about our candidate, our platform and what she would try to do if elected. One voter told me she really liked Jagmeet Singh, but thought that voting NDP was a wasted vote. I...

A hearty congratulations to the City of Nelson for undertaking the removal of Japanese knotweed and the Kootenay Invasive Species Society in supporting their efforts.

Ed. Note: This letter is in reference to an act of vandalism that destroyed a local mural, for more coverage, see https://castlegarsource.com/news/vandals-destroy-castlegar-mural

I wonder what the impact is on people who are targeted by vandalism.

As with most gross acts of vandalism we, as a community, speak out, especially on social media (me being one of them).

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...

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.
