We in the Kootenays, with pacificist traditions from Quakers, Doukhobors, and Viet Nam war resisters, surely must be alerted by a Prime Minister with a vision of Canada standing tall with military muscle beside imperial nations like America and Britain.

I fear that maybe...

The best way to explain my issue would be in chronological order but would require a longer article to accomplish.

A condensed version, in this case, is applicable.

On December 30th  at 3:50 p.m., our vehicle was caught in a collision with what best described was a pothole.

The pothole measured 48 inches long by 20 inches wide and was 7-1/2 to 8-1/2 inches deep....

Dear editor,

This week, teachers of grade 4 and 7 students in School District #20 will be sending letters home with students asking parents to withdraw their children from writing the FSAs.

To the Editor, The Nelson Daily

I write this from a big city, Victoria, during the holiday.

The new year has begun today, and I am moved to reflect on what Nelson might expect from the downstream effects of the Occupation events in 2011. From an urban landscape, which is the habitat of most planetary residents, I can see more clearly.

We of Occupy Nelson would like to thank the City of Nelson, the Nelson City Police and the helpful folks on City Council for assisting us with dismantling the physical Occupation in front of City Hall.

We would like to thank the incredibly helpful (and ever-thoughtful) City manager for waiting until our most vulnerable...
