This week the board of School District 27 (Cariboo-Chilcotin) voted to develop and submit a deficit budget to the Ministry of Education for the coming fiscal year. As reported in the Williams Lake Tribune, trustee Bruce Mack said, “The board will develop a...

Ever wonder about the whole computer technology world? I don’t mean the technology itself and keeping up to date on the new, improved stuff available – that would be overwhelming. Just this week Apple introduced it’s iPad – a tablet style notebook computer that will likely be all the rage.

No, I’m talking about us poor users who were told, in the early ‘80s – that computers were going to...

It’s amazing that as one looks to entertainment for relaxation and a chance to get away from the stress of society, it seems harder than ever to just be able to enjoy a movie. Yes, sometimes when I watch a movie I just want to be entertained. I don’t want to think, and I certainly don’t want someone preaching about how I should interpret it. Sometimes the experience just isn’t that deep. Take...

Chris Moslin has been a city councillor for Grand Forks since 2005 and headed up trails development prior to his role as councillor.

The City of Grand Forks has the once in a lifetime opportunity to TRIPLE our legacy dollars by matching them with grants from the provincial and federal governments! If these grants are not spent in Grand Forks, they will be spent somewhere else....

The defeat of the alternate approval process (AAP) by local residents for the garbage services and the electrical truck in Grand Forks has had serious repercussions that make one wonder if the people who fought against the proposal completely understood what they were doing. A similar movement is underway right now with people collecting signatures to prevent low cost financing for the trails...

When the government has completed the legislative agenda they have put forward in the session following a Budget speech it is usual and perfectly fine to prorogue the House. In fact Parliament can be prorogued on one day and a new budget speech introduced the following day if the government chooses.

It is not okay, for any Prime Minister to use this privilege as a tool to prevent the...

Welcome to 2010! The time of all things new is January of each year. For 2010 we have new cell phone regulations, new security measures at airports, and a new look for the Boundary Sentinel. At the Sentinel we started out with a heritage look and decided that we would move to a more modern stylized look for the new decade. I hope you enjoy the same top quality news coverage with our eagle ever...

2009 has been a year of change across the Boundary region. For myself, although I left the Grand Forks Gazette with a heavy heart, my new venture into the Boundary Sentinel has been a huge learning experience and a fun adventure. While the site has not been active for long, as a journalist I have been writing through the year and have seen our communities’ own changes. With the downturn in the...

Ed. Note: The following was penned by the editor of our sister paper, The Rossland Telegraph:

If you find yourself at loose ends one evening this summer, walk downtown (in Rossland) and count the empty store fronts. You might need more than the fingers on your two hands, so bring a friend or family member along. After several years the old Bank of Montreal building is still for...

It’s that time of year again, when people contemplate the previous year, and here at The Source, we’re doing the same. When I reflect on the past year, the first thing that enters my mind is how lucky I am to have my beautiful wife Nichole and the seven years we have shared together; and my four children who, despite trying my patience at times, I have always considered to be my...
