The Interior Health Authority’s decision to reduce Emergency services to Kalso will only result in hardship to the members of that community, and those members who live in outlying communities which are serviced by Kaslo. 

Contrary to The Ministry of Health’s strategic goal #3 which speaks to accessibility of timely, safe, and...

Doesn’t it just cream your corn when you witness a situation that you have no control over?  One knows there is a problem and it needs to be solved however, helplessness seems to control the moment.  Am I the only person with skull cramps caused by incomprehension of our health system?

This is for everyone who feels a need to share this photo (the one attached to this story). As someone on assistance, this is very hurtful.

Mr. Harper:

I write about your directing our military to revert to the use of British military rank insignias and designations after 45 years of a home-grown Canadian system.

Online schooling has demonstrated success...

Open letter to Premier Christy Clark:
 
Dear Premier Christy Clark.

Your ambition to pay off BC’s debt, and not burden the next generation with it, is praiseworthy.

But, have you really thought about the big picture?

Money and debt is a man-made creation and is not real. Natural gas...
