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. I also note that you previously had directed our services to revert to 'Royal' services in name, indicating service under the Queen of England.

My wife and I spent 16 years out of country and...

Dear Editor,

It is my pleasure to write a letter supporting the Red Mountain Academy.  I feel confident that an academic partnership between the Academy and Self Design High (SDH) will provide a favorable outcome for all involved; students, athletes and parents.  It will be a “win win” situation for all.

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...

Dear Editor,

Ken Holmes’ recent critique of the new Kootenay Energy Diet initiative was puzzling to me, not so much the pedantic detail offered to support his criticism, but rather the difficulty I have in...

Dear editor,

It has recently been stated in a local news publication that “Rossland held the notorious tag as the fattest energy town in BC last year”. This deserves comment and correction.

Where on Earth does this myth originate? If this originates from the Energy Diet folks, they should do their homework before making such statements. A draft Community...

One of the major reasons cougar sightings have increased recently is the dramatic decline in the province’s deer population, their traditional prey.

Contrary to the pathetic posturing of fish and wildlife staff and organized hunters the ungulate populations in our province are in serious trouble. Although there are a number of reasons the most prominent and egregious is liberalized...

Dear editor,
 
Regardless of any particular election result, federal, provincial or municipal, certain truths remain self-evident. In the case of our two senior levels of government, excessive party discipline is slowly killing our democracy. In the May 14th BC provincial election barely 52 per cent of registered voters bothered to cast a ballot, down three per...

Neither Teck nor the BC government has denied the well documented facts reiterated by the recent selenium study quoted in Wildsight and its partners’ media release on the poisoning of the Elk River. 

B.C. Environment Minister Terry Lake reacted by the afternoon of our release stating that there would be no new coalmines...

A recent study out of the U.S. has generated much discussion about the health of the Elk River. 

As the operator of five steelmaking coal mines in the Elk Valley, which employ over 4,000 people who live in the region, we take environmental issues very seriously.

Our people raise their families in the Valley, fish in the...

Dear editor,

When Laurel and moved our family to this part of the world, we were were blessed with the option of sending our children to Camp Koolaree. On the shores of Kootenay Lake, just a bit north of Nelson, it's a rustic wilderness camp owned by the United Church that’s accessible by boat or a hike on the railway only. Home to 140 kids who canoe, swim, hike, play, sing, and run...
