To The Editor.

Somebody needs to explain just how (BC Premier John) Horgan possibly can justify taking our hard-earned tax dollars and give it to families with annual incomes up to 175,000 dollars, and individuals earning up to 67,500 dollars, insisting they desperately need ‘emergency funding’.

There is no doubt a lot of people who suddenly lost their...

To The Editor:

How to occupy your time during a shutdown is something with which we are all having to deal. 

In this digital age it is so much easier to have access to and indeed create content  and have it posted on the internet.  As consumers it is important to be able to sort that content in to the good, bad and ugly.  With a little effort one can...

Top international lawyers to draft definition of "Ecocide" 75 years after Crimes Against Humanity and Genocide coined at Nuremberg.

To the Editor:

Imagine it's October, 2030. That special four year old in your life will be fourteen. Will the skies be filled with smoke? Will there still be caribou? Will Kootenays communities have drinkable water? 

What kind of a life will children be inheriting? And what are you willing...

To The Editor:

As a constituent in the Federal riding of Kootenay – Columbia, I wanted to find out how the values and issues of my newly elected representative and his Party aligned with my own.

The obvious solution for that would be to write my representative and ask.  It actually started before the Federal election, when I asked questions on the then...

Dear Dr. Henry,

Thank you profusely, Dr. Henry, for everything you and your ministry staff have done these past many months to safeguard British Columbians from the suffering of the global novel coronavirus (COVID 19) pandemic.

Editor, the Rossland Telegraph:

I want to be wrong about this. I am only half certain. I think the BC NDP are heading for a defeat.

To The Editor:

I am sorely perturbed with the amount of misinformation I have had to endure from friends, family and acquaintances. Particularly those with a penchant for using garbage news.

As a student I was shocked when an English teacher remarked that my arguments would have been much better if I had used the Encyclopedia Britannica as a source...
