To The Editor:

Many environmentalists and climate-warming panic artists have bemoaned Stephen Harper’s less than speedy transition to non-carbon sources of power. 

While there have been some  efforts towards windpower (Alberta) and tidal power (New Brunswick) in conversion to electrical energy it is obvious that these efforts, while brave, have minimal;...

Is The US Dollar Collapsing, or is it Not? There are three schools of thought on where the US dollar is headed, some say it will be dead before Sept. 2015  is over. Some believe it is business as usual, while a third group points to the US dollar as deflating.

Now I’m a Canadian, and personally, I do not care who is right, or who is wrong. But, what I do care about, and what is...

How much would it cost for the City of Grand Forks to test the accuracy of local industries' water meters? Last year, the CAO told me it would be too expensive. But, as far back as five years ago, expert engineering companies have been recommending this to our city.

Why would our city be considering installing more water meters if it can't afford to properly take...

What good can come of an election, where a fraudulent, discriminatory disconnection exists between the Canadian voter, and those who Rule?

Canada, and its working class, at this moment are held in a death grip by traitorous political powers. Powers, which cannot be seen to be serving the interests of Canada’s popular majority, or providing Governance in Canada's best interests. The...

As we live through a hot summer, we are faced with the constant threat of fire and with water shortages in most of BC. It is heartening to finally hear ongoing public recognition of the fact of global warming and the warnings that fire threat and water shortages will be a fact of life in the years to come. It is also heartening to hear that the federal government and some provinces are taking...

Dear Editor,

The video media tech recording council meetings is publicly discrediting and debasing our mayor. He published demeaning things about Councilor Butler (that she had him remove on the basis of Respectful Workplace policy). He openly states biased opinions about issues that intimately involve the city and its residents. And all this is done on the same website  (gftv.ca) as...

Public Service Announcement to Community Regarding Smart Meters

In researching smart meters or Itron meters, I have learned there is a lot of misinformation circulated by email and available on the internet.  I continue to support only peaceful, legal and harmonious resolution of resident concerns about Itron smart meters.

I strongly encourage people to only accept legal advice...

This wildfire season has been one of the most challenging in recent memory.

As of July 14, fire crews have responded to 1,083 fires throughout the province - compared to 523 at the same time a year ago. Of those fires, we know over one-third are human caused. That's 375 fires, leading to an estimated 43,718 hectares going up in flames.

We must send a clear message to those that...

I just want to give a huge thanks to all those who played a part in allowing me and my family to keep Chumlee and Rosie.

To The Editor:

June 18 was a momentous date for the people of the Kootenay and British Columbia – cancellation of the Environmental Assessment Certificate (EAC) for Jumbo Glacier Resort must now mark the end of a decades-long struggle for the protection of one of this region’s most beloved wild places, the Jumbo Valley.
 


The would-be...
