To the editor:

Did you know that Castlegar has a huge hidden resource that is barely tapped? The bears know! I am talking about all the fruit that falls and is not used in our area. There were, at one time, at least 60 orchards in our valley. Now, there are no commercial fruit farms here, to my knowledge, but there is a ton of fruit to be gleaned.

To the Editor:

New Democratic Party (NDP) MP Alex Atamanenko is concerned about genetically modified (GM) foods. Great… But how does he explain the two NDP premiers who established the GM industry’s permanent presence in Western Canada?

In all the media coverage of Atamanenko’s discussions on genetic modification, not one reporter has ever asked him why...

The domestic dog: a wolf descendant whose bite is responsible for about 1,000 hospitalizations per day (mostly facial injuries of kids), and 34 deaths in 2010 in the USA alone.

Known for producing loud noise at all hours of the day, often roaming freely and leaving unsightly and smelly poop everywhere. Perfectly legal in...

To the Editor,

It is our Government’s long-standing position that political parties should rely on their supporters for financing, supporters who choose to fund the activities of political parties.

The “per-vote subsidy” to fund political parties is, in fact, a tax-on-voting. Canadians should have choice over whether...

Dear editor,

After 30 bargaining sessions at the provincial table we have had no offers of pay increases, benefit improvements or the return of the class size and composition language that the BC Supreme Court recently ruled was illegally stripped from our contracts.

The court found that then-Minister of Education Christy Clark proudly led legislation based on information that...

Re: Hurricane Irene and the staggering costs of climate change

To the editor:

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...
