To The Editor:

Hats off to the NDP minority government for introducing legislation on electoral reform. BC will hold a mail in referendum by November 2018 following public consultation. The threshold...

We have been increasingly distressed by the many, many bags of dog feces neatly bagged and thrown on the mining school road and on out the trails and presumably all over Rossland.  The bears are hungry now and dog feces are rich in nutrients, and ugly as this photo is, people need to know that they are threatening the lives of bears who can die from ingesting plastic bags which can block their...

August 6th marked the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima in 1945.
 
The "official" story presents this bombing as a way to end the Second World War. I question this interpretation chiefly because Hiroshima was not a military target, it was a city inhabited largely by women, children and the...

Dear Editor,

We live in one of the most beautiful areas in this region and I am in favor of a waterfront trail along the Columbia River! 

I don't feel however, it needs to encroach on private property!

All of the city waterfront trails I have experienced have existed on cit- owned land.

I am one of the waterfront property owners and I feel blessed at the tranquility...

To The Editor:

A strategy to end strategic voting:

The political landscape in British Columbia has been plagued by polarized politics for as long as anyone can remember.

Dear Editor:

As we head to the polls on May 9, a question we should be considering is what type of world we want to leave for our children and grandchildren.

Are we are doomed to go over the climate cliff – facing a world with ever increasing extreme weather, mudslides, catastrophic wildfires, and sea level rise? Or should we just not think about it because it is too overwhelming...

To The Editor:

When I contemplate the choices we have in  the upcoming provincial election, I must admit I get depressed. I think we need a new category on the voting ballot entitled None of the Above.

The Liberals can be characterized as sneaky taxers with a conceited attitude. They are also given to flip and smart alec sophistry instead of candid,...
