“In a peaceful age I might have written ornate or merely descriptive books, and might have remained almost unaware of my political loyalties. As it is I have been forced into becoming a sort of pamphleteer.”—George Orwell, Why I Write, 1946

Ninety-nine per cent of the time, I’m incredibly proud of the Source, including our interactions on social media. We’ve used Facebook and Twitter to disseminate important public information, to reunite lost pets with their people, even to help find a missing child.
Santa Claus is on the hot seat, literally, after receiving some gentle criticism from local fire officials.
Kootenay Boundary Regional Fire Rescue deputy chief Dan Derby said they felt a warning was due, given an incident last year involving a singed beard, soot stains, and a not-fully-extinguished fireplace.
RE: Radon awareness and the risk to your health.
Cigarettes, second-hand smoke, asbestos, and pollution are all well-known cancer causing agents.
However, many people do not know that radon is actually the first leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers and the second leading cause in smokers.
I was born and raised in Trail and, I’m proud of it. I’ve served three terms on City Council. I’m community=minded and support a lot of nonprofit groups and volunteer at Trail Smoke Eater Spud Shack, Greater Trail United Way, Fair and many others.
I’m an active member of my church, which is Holy Trinity Parish, and also Council member of St.Michael's Catholic School.
I will only do my best for the whole community if elected to Mayor. I will be there to work for everyone in the City, young and old, I will not be there to be friends, I will be there to try and help the City return to its former self.
I will be looking to bring in new business for employment, to enhance the downtown areas.
I am running for Trail Council because I will offer a fresh perspective to City Hall. We need to continue the transition of our City of Trail to a new generation of leadership.
I have been married to Lynn (Dimock) for 40 years. We have three children Adam (Kim) and Hannah, Leah, Laura (Jason) and Jayci Halifax.

Seven years later I went to work for Cominco (Teck) in various accounting jobs and retired after 30 years.
