See video

Thanks to the Seven Summits Centre for Learning (Seven Summits), Rossland still has Kindergarten to Grade 12  (K -12) education within its city limits.  When School District 20 decided to close Maclean Elementary School, sell that building and move its former students into the former Rossland Secondary School building, and bus Grade 10, 11 and 12 students down the hill to the brand-new J.L Crowe Secondary School, a group of Rosslanders dedicated to maintaining K - 12 education within Rossland got busy. Very busy.  And so Seven Summits was born.

A reader has notified me of a disturbing incident.  It was just paper -- three pages of it -- tacked to a fence in downtown Rossland, but the reader reported that it was an attempt to spread hate in our Mountain Kingdom.  The targets were the usual ones that bigots love to hate:  "liberal,"  feminist, Jewish,  LGBTQ;  and the tone, said the reader, was "hateful, aggressive and belligerent."

OUT OF LEFT FIELD: Blueberry School AGM a slap in face to taxpayers everywhere

OUT OF LEFT FIELD: Blueberry School AGM a slap in face to taxpayers everywhere

I would like to preface this by saying I have long been a vehement – almost rabid – supporter of the Blueberry Creek Community School Hub (BCCS). I lobbied hard, both personally and professionally, for SD 20 to sell the BCCS property to its non-profit society to keep the school in operation.

COLUMN: On the Quality of Public Discourse, and the Difference Between Debate and Dialogue

A portion of the cover of James Hoggan's book, "I'm Right and You're an Idiot -- the toxic state of public discourse, and how to clean it up."

The U.S. election was a chilling illustration of the atrocious state of public discourse. It doesn’t bode well for a country once admired for leadership in education and science.
