Do we invest in an upgraded Regional Community Complex?  Be clear,  I am not writing this to tell people how to vote – I am asking them to be informed voters.

My initial reaction to upgrading  - “No”!  Higher taxes?  Not for me!!”  I felt I had not used the facility much over the years –why should I pay for it then?  Looking back, I really had made more use of the facility than...

Dear Editor
When driving into Trail from Columbia Gardens/Waneta I am always awed at the beautiful Rossland Range. Normally, I don’t think much beyond the view, except to note the increasing white patches (clear cuts) on the landscape.
Recently, I learned that Red Mountain Resorts was approved by Rossland City Council, to build 10 cabins near Paradise Lodge on...

To whom it may concern,

I am writing to express my concerns with the city of Castlegar and RDCK recreation commission’s plan to eliminate the ball field at the Castlegar complex as part of the upcoming complex revamp with no plan to replace it.

The city already took two ballfields out at Millennium with promises to replace them that still have not come about. The loss of the...

To The Editor:

I would like to respond to this proposal for recreational use of a large area of wilderness, south of the Purcell Wilderness Area. 

The impacts of this proposal need to be carefully considered.  Our Crown land is a Public Trust that requires care and respect for all living things and future generations as well. This proposal would see...

In a letter to the editor in the April 19 edition of the Castlegar News, Councillor Bruno Tassone explains his reasoning for voting against a council motion to support the upcoming Regional District Recreation Complex referendum. While I respect his right to support or oppose any motion, I do not accept his asserted reasoning. As elected officials we have a responsibility to...

To The Editor:

I was appalled to hear that the Prime Minister intends to provide a Texas extraction company with billions of tax dollars to foist their dirty pipeline on a reluctant province. 

First of all, the Trudeau government has no such mandate.  This government pledged to be a proactive partner in the fight against climate change and to engage in...

To The Editor:

I find it very disgusting that big business continues to manipulate public opinion with there ill gotten fortunes.

Newspaper, T.V., social media campaigns, are easy for these mega rich companies; and used to manipulate the general public. Health Care is particularly vulnerable to uncompassionate corporations who profit ammensley on the...

To The Editor:

Asking if pain killers should taste like candy seems like a ridiculous question doesn't it?

Until recently, every pain killer I have taken for my arthritis has not had a very good taste and I thought nothing of it. I bought a bottle of acetaminophen in a local drugstore with the store brand name Atoma. It is manufactured by Laboratoires...
