Dear Editor,

I read with horror the article Mount Polley Disaster published in the The Boundary Sentinel on August 6, 2014.

I have been following the news on the Fraser River Imperial Mines tailing pond contamination. I see that the government...

We regret to announce that our president, Tim Carson, has stepped down effective immediately. Tim stepped up from his role as vice-president to take over when Jeff Olson stepped down. He's one of the original Boundayr Youth Soccer Association (BYSA) board members and has poured an immense amount of energy into youth soccer in our region over the years. We are grateful for your efforts Tim...

In a Saturday morning interview on CBC Radio’s The House, Dan Albas, the Conservative MP for South Okanagan-Similkameen continued his government’s attacks on the Canadian judiciary. I feel his remarks betray a scary lack of understanding of the role of the courts in our country.

Albas claims that it is “an end run around democracy” when individuals or groups mount court challenges to...

Letter to the Editor:

To date, we have had the most secure voting procedures available!  Why would we want to change that?!  We've been told that electronic vote counting would likely be faster...  But, may there be some unintended consequences?

The quality of electronic voting machines cannot be determined "because their code is proprietary and they won't let anybody examine it...

Dear Editor,

Unfortunately this past week the summertime schedule for Parks and Recreation in Christina Lake missed out on mentioning Stretching for Mobility sessions with Gisela Ko. Those of us who attend regularly were disappointed because we know how these sessions are so beneficial to us. Gisela has decided to continue these classes all the way through the summer on Wednesdays at ...

Dear Christy Clark and the Government of BC:

As a parent of a child with special needs and a professional in the field of support, it is very disheartening to observe the disconnect the Government of BC has with the children, youth and families of today. I want our voice to be heard before our daughter enters the public school system and therefore I write you this…

Today, more...

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of spending some time with Kris Stanbra.  She had just been awarded the prestigious Courage to Come Back Award.  I was truly impressed by her story and thought I would share it with my constituents in the B.C. Southern Interior

Kris grew up as a fun-loving, athletic child with a competitive drive that continues to this day.  As a kid, she excelled in...

Dear Mayor and Council,

Instead of telling you at Monday's Council meeting, you asked me to write you a letter, so here it is:

There are five things I wish to bring to your attention:

1.  In our city engineering reports, there are differences in opinion about how much conservation water meters may...
