Canadians across the country are mobilizing to oppose the rushed passage of the Omnibus Crime Bill. If passed, Bill C-10 would shift Canada to a cruel, costly and failed fill-the-prisons approach to justice. The 150+ cross-country actions at MP’s constituency offices are focused on Thursday at 1PM, with some taking place throughout the day and Friday.

Canadians will be arriving...

The Boundary District Teachers’ Association would like to thank the parents and students of School District 51 for their continued support and understanding as teachers work through phase one of their current job action. 
 
Teachers understand that parents are concerned about their child’s education and have structured phase one so that students are the focus. Much of the...

To The Editor;

"“Our Mission as educators is to encourage the physical, intellectual, creative, ethical, social and cultural growth in our students" states the mission statement of the Grand Forks Secondary School.

Sounds promising, but the current administration clearly prioritizes the physical aspect of education over literacy.

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...

During September, the Canadian Cancer Society is highlighting men’s health with a fun and informative campaign – What’s Your Game Plan? – to remind men of the simple steps they can take to reduce their risk of cancer below the waist including prostate, colorectal and testicular cancers. 

Each September I reflect on my own experience dealing with...

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:

This year I had the pleasure of attending the Seniors Games for the first time. 

I wanted to say how much I enjoyed it and how fantastic the townspeople and the volunteers were. 

From losing keys (and finding them) and eating fabulous meals at Nelson`s restaurants to riding on the Electric Tram I had a wonderful time.

Everyone was...

Dear Friends,

 

Tens of thousands of Canadians have written to me in recent weeks to wish me well. I want to thank each and every one of you for your thoughtful, inspiring and often beautiful notes, cards and gifts. Your spirit and love have lit up my home, my spirit, and my determination.

 

Unfortunately my treatment has not worked out as I hoped. So I am giving...
