Dear Editor,

For over 100 years Trail Operations has operated as a world class refinery and smelter in the West Kootenays of British Columbia. Our facility refines and recycles everything from metal concentrates to used batteries into metals and fertilizers that we all rely on. Over our 100-year history we have grown in lockstep with the city of Trail and surrounding communities. Our...

The Interior Health Authority’s decision to reduce Emergency services to Kalso will only result in hardship to the members of that community, and those members who live in outlying communities which are serviced by Kaslo. 

Contrary to The Ministry of Health’s strategic goal #3 which speaks to accessibility of timely, safe, and...

Doesn’t it just cream your corn when you witness a situation that you have no control over?  One knows there is a problem and it needs to be solved however, helplessness seems to control the moment.  Am I the only person with skull cramps caused by incomprehension of our health system?
 
While waiting to see a doctor at a...

Letter to the Editor:

This week is Gay Pride Week in the Kootenays. This is a celebration of love and understanding to millions of people worldwide and, in many cases, the acknowledgment of equal rights for LGBT couples. I am afraid to say that I
have been remiss in my duties as a councillor as I did not bring up the topic
at the last City Council meeting. As such...

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...
