Dear Editor,

As the one who a month ago launched the torpedo to sink the Habitat for Humanity project in Grand Forks, Coun. Chris Hammet now finds herself standing ankle deep in the old-Taylor-council doo-doo.

As per council tapes of the April 20th meeting, Hammet, under unannounced authority, is releasing “in-camera” data of the Allin/Taylor-council dealings of...

Dear Mayor and Council,

I understood from the local radio news that you were looking for solutions to the water system issues in Grand Forks. Here is an extremely inexpensive and effective solution: District Metering.

Veritec engineering did a study for the City of Revelstoke on their water system, dated Oct 10, 2013, ...

Over the past few months, Grand Forks City Council has received a few complaints directed towards myself and the Mayor, suggesting us to be in a conflict of interest with regards to the water meter program and water rates committee.   As we both had a strong objection to the program during the campaign period, it isn’t surprising that proponents of the commodification of water should object to...

The recent article in local media celebrating the public funding of the invasive weed program is one of many examples of pathetic behavior by our politicians that showcase why it is virtually impossible to have an honest intelligent discussion of the management of our province’s natural resources.

Cows traversing moderate steep grassland slopes create a major erosion problem which...

To the Editor:

Recycling is a way of life in this day and age, and I’m pleased to say that I make every effort to support the movement. For example, take the paper and flyers that is delivered to my door every week. I faithfully pick it up and walk it over to my recycling bin. Clean, and ecologically appropriate. Yes folks, that’s all I do with the weekly delivery from a local company...

Dear Editor,

There seems to be a desperation in the minds of a few to “move on” with the water meter program, shake hands, smile, and carry on like nothing happened. Well, something did happen, and it has fractured this community.

A small group of “we know what’s best for you” political types totally ignored a huge public outcry against plans for the water meter program and...

To the Editor:

Recently, Thalia Vesterback (Interior Health) rebutted an article in the Nelson Star questioning the IHA’s recent decision not to purchase a new digital mammography machine for KLH and move these services to Trail, which can absorb the additional capacity.

Her response was misleading, neglected some hard truths and has raised more...

Dear Editor,

I would like to urge all citizens of Canada and our local MP Alex Atamanenko,  to speak out against Bill C-51.

The government’s secret police Bill C-51 is reckless, dangerous, and ineffective: reckless for turning CSIS into a ‘secret police’ force with little oversight or accountability; dangerous for opening the door to violations of our Charter Rights including...

To the Editor:

The Valhalla Wilderness Society (VWS) played a leading role in the establishment of Valhalla and Goat Range Provincial Parks, and it goes without saying that VWS welcomes the recent expansion to West Arm Park.

Contrary to government claims, however, the addition will not significantly benefit the endangered South Selkirk mountain caribou herd....
