Tens of thousands of Canadians have written to me in recent weeks to wish me well. I want to thank eachand every one of you for your thoughtful, inspiring and often beautiful notes, cards and gifts. Your spirit and love have lit up my home, my spirit, and my determination....

To the editor:

The Liberals have made the HST an interesting topic of study for political scientists around the world; not in a positive way mind you, but as a fine example of how NOT to implement a tax shift.

What started as a lie in an election has now evolved into Christy Clark's attempt to buy your vote by reducing the HST rate by...

To the Editor,

Why are Bill Vander Zalm and Chris Delaney afraid of local voices? The B.C. government has announced it will hold HST public dialogues featuring speakers from the No and the Yes sides in 10 different communities across the province.

It is clear that the intent was to have local participation from both sides so that attendees would have access...

 Dear Editor,


We are writing to ask your readers to help us make poverty an issue in this election campaign.  We know the Harper government has the needed funds to reduce poverty, but instead it has chosen to spend billions of our tax dollars for things like the G-8/G-20 Summits, reduced taxes for large corporations, fighter jets and other “big ticket” items which don’t benefit...

Dear Editor:

Throughout the current election campaign, (including  the Castlegar All Candidates forum), NDP candidate Atamanenko has railed against 'the Harper government's' lack of co-operation, their 'inability to compromise', and to simply 'get along with others

Yet he fails to acknowledge or explain how - if the...

I have been a proud pit bull and American Staffordshire owner for 10 years now. Our six-year-old dog Pearl is great with children, adults, and other dogs. Never have we seen her bare her teeth, growl, snap, or bite at another dog or a human.

I was upset when I read (an article about the city's $1,000-licensing fee for pit bulls and American Staffordshire dogs).

Ask anyone who has lived under a dictatorship and they will tell you of its ugly features: A Supreme Leader who rules with an iron fist; legislation pushed through by a rubber stamp legislative assembly with little or closured debate; government officials ordered into silence or fearful of speaking up; and a press denied the right to even ask questions, let alone get any answers.

To the Editor:

I am writing to advise you that the road over the Hugh L. Keenleyside Dam will be closed to all traffic beginning at 6:30 a.m. on Monday, March 28.

In the Facilities Report released by the school district this fall, three of the top-rated scenarios see Rossland Secondary School closing and MacLean Elementary becoming a K-7 school. This is based on the assumption that grades kindergarten to seven will fit in MacLean. When you take a closer look at the numbers, however, it becomes clear that this is not a viable option.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the heroes and heroines and martyrs of Libya, and with our brave correspondent in Tripoli, now under fire. Communication is on and off, mainly off. Here is her most recent report. Since she sent it the phone lines have been cut entirely and the city’s electricity is also disconnected.

I live in the Ben Ashour area of Tripoli. Minutes ago my...
