A B.C. Supreme Court judge has given the go-ahead for a class-action lawsuit for residents of the Slocan Valley affected by the 2013 fuel spill in Lemon Creek.

Editorial:  One more resource for voting decisions

As  most readers here know by now, I'm supremely tired of -- and sickened by -- election communications that tell you terrible (and usually inaccurate) things about the OTHER parties and their candidates, and make wild promises to get your vote.  But I think it's hugely important that people get informed about what the different parties really stand for and what they're most likely to do if elected.  And then vote.  Please vote.
