Dear Editor;

Recently I came across the Boundary Sentinel editorial entitled Beating a Dead Borsht. As a proud Canadian Doukhobor (not Russian as the editorial implies Doukhobors to be), I was offended by the tone of the editorial with respect to Doukhobors.

First, I was not able to detect what positive result your editoiral writer hoped to achieve.by indulging in juvenile...

Dear Mr. Baird;

We are writing to express our surprise and dismay at being left off of the voters' list for the upcoming fire protection referendum to be held in Rock Creek.

Unfortunately we were not able to attend the public meeting held to clarify the issue. However, we have kept abreast of the issue with great interest.

The Boundary Creek Times reported on the meeting and...

Canadians across the country are mobilizing to oppose the rushed passage of the Omnibus Crime Bill. If passed, Bill C-10 would shift Canada to a cruel, costly and failed fill-the-prisons approach to justice. The 150+ cross-country actions at MP’s constituency offices are focused on Thursday at 1PM, with some taking place throughout the day and Friday.

Canadians will be arriving...

To the Editor;

Shaun Eadie and Brian Thomas, a gay couple, wanted to spend the night at a bed and breakfast in Grand Forks which turned out to be run by a Christian couple. When the Christians refused, Eadie and Thomas sued.
But why would Eadie and Thomas even want to stay in a devoutly Christian household? Would they be suing if it had turned out to be a Muslim couple? Rights...

To the Editor;

While paying Boss Power resolves a lot of problems,it is a very sad state of affairs and I can only hope that the both the government of B.C. and the federal government will learn from this so that all is not lost.
My comments in this regard are:

1. No government should ever convey the rights to their natural resources to any private enterprise without...

Minister Rich Coleman and Premier Christy Clark have not learned a thing.  Even though the government spent millions on ads (that did not make sense by the way) the people did not support the harmonized sales tax.  I only hope that this smart meter initiative will have the same fate.

To the Editor:

I was fortunate enough to participate at the Union of British Columbia Municipal Conference as an outgoing municipal councillor for the Town of Oliver. The key address is always on the last day, and always by the Premier.

It was the first time I have heard Christy Clark speak in person, and although she put a lot of effort into the delivery of her...

To the Editor:

In response to a "Letter to the Editor" regarding the Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS) library move, I would like to bring some clarification to the issue.

As part of an initiative aimed at providing students with increased opportunities to pursue personal fitness, over the summer we relocated our fitness facility (originally located in the...
