Letters to the Editor
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.

"“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.

We are appalled that they have...

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.
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...
