Accountability.

Local city councils in the Kootenays should follow the examples of  Victoria, Saanich and the District of the Highlands, who voted nearly unanimously to send a "Climate Accountability Letter" to 20 of the world's largest fossil fuel companies,...

Dear Editor,

We live in one of the most beautiful areas in this region and I am in favor of a waterfront trail along the Columbia River! 

I don't feel however, it needs to encroach on private property!

All of the city waterfront trails I have experienced have existed on cit- owned land.

I am one of the waterfront property owners and I feel blessed at the tranquility...

Most of us don’t realize how valuable our car keys are until we lose them. With remote starters and built-in unlock systems, keys are not as simple or cheap as they used to be, with many owners paying hundreds of dollars in replacement fees.   

But for more than 70 years, The War Amps Key Tag Service has been helping Canadians avoid these...

As our customers know, the winter season brings higher electricity bills given the home heating energy requirements compared to the rest of the year.

During the mid-December to mid-February billing period, many parts of our electricity service territory experienced much colder than usual winter temperatures. With colder than usual weather...

The Vancouver Sun article: “Scarce Moose” is hardly surprising to that small percent of hunters, outfitters and concerned citizens who are fully aware of the sorry state of wildlife management in BC.

Weak wildlife management started to go downhill in 1996 when Premier Glen Clark facing a sea of red ink demanded more money from all of our...

As Black Friday looms followed by the impending Christmas season, I begin to worry about my days. I am fully in support of various causes and events of awareness but our 24 hour slots are quickly being consumed by 'special days'. Failing to stem the tide, we risk finding ourselves with a day shortage.

Cyber Monday, Toonie Tuesday, Superbowl Sunday and Seniors Thursday leave only...

Dear Editor,
 
Phase 2 of the universal water meter boondoggle is in progress… there were approximately 400 meters remaining to be installed. Here are a few things all residents and homeowners should know:

Daily there are thousands of migrants fleeing to Europe from Syria and Iraq.  This year there have been over 300,000 refugees arriving on European shores.  People are fleeing the savage rule of ISIS in parts of Iraq and Syria and the ongoing civil war in Syria.
