    Nope! You guys cannot stand the fact that other people have a different opinion than you professional protesters.  Get used to it! :)

  • UPDATE: Perry Ridge logging protestors have change of heart   25 weeks 5 days ago

    According to the Supreme Court of Canada (May 2013)

    "The failure by the Aboriginal individuals to legally challenge the issuance of the government authorizations to the logging company in the first instance was fatal to the individuals' ability to later plead defences against the logging company based on a breach of the duty to consult or treaty rights violations.

  • LETTER: Rethink water meters   25 weeks 5 days ago

    My question is; are the tree farms and other farms also going to be metered? I see these with water on most of all days and nights even when it is poring rain. Is it fair to meter only residents?

  • UPDATE: Perry Ridge logging protestors have change of heart   25 weeks 5 days ago

    Again the people that in reality own the forest products have lost to the corporation that owns the governments and the courts. Another of the so called democratic countries robbing the citizens of their rights. Why have we allowed the privatisation of all our national resouces??? To make the 1% richer at all cost.

    Conservancy is good. Sould the RDCK be taking this on? No. 

  • Proposed Parks Act amendments could open the door for industrial developments in provincial parks   26 weeks 4 days ago

    The current Provincial Government of BC doesn’t care about anything but filling their own pockets – collecting “campaign donations” (bribes) from corporations. 

    “balance the government’s priorities of economic growth and environmental protection”

    Eliminating the protection of provincial park land, (i.e. allowing commercial activities and development), does not bring things into balance.  The balance is already tilted against environmental protection.  Provincial parks are a very tiny part of BC land, and they were meant to stay pristine forever by the past Provincial Governments who instituted the provincial parks protection laws. 

    This is a small, but blatant chipping away of the little protection the law provides for the environment.  Don’t be under the impression that they intend to stop at this new law.  The rest of the land in BC is already subject to exploitation, but the corporations want it all without restrictions.  And why would the politicians stand in their way if they get rich right along with them!

  • UPDATED: Man killed/woman injured after being caught in avalanche near Kootenay Pass   27 weeks 13 hours ago

    Both thumbs are down on this one. It’s a very sad moment when a life is lost or someone is injured. I’m still hoping everyone fully recovers. The frustrating part is that some people still do not think an avalanche warning identifying such a high risk applies to them. Meanwhile they put themselves and the SARS crews at risk. Just sounds a bit too selfish.

    Thank you Dr. Gill for trying to educate people about the benefits of Coconut Oil. I buy it by the pail (excellent price at Mother Nature's in Castlegar..organic and fragrance free.)

    I truly do not know why you are being villified for what is very sound advice

     Thanks and keep up the good work!

    No-- I see that you really don't get it .AS a taxpayer, could you please refund the  subsidy we paid so that you could get educated with your so-called degrees?

  • UPDATED: Man killed/woman injured after being caught in avalanche near Kootenay Pass   27 weeks 1 day ago

    Hope they make it okay... hate to see this especially with the avalanche ratings what they were this weekend. Fingers crossed!

    Anyone can improve someone's health ten-fold figuratively. Improving someone's health literally is another matter altogether. Again, to be fair, she does give some good general tips like exercise, eating healthy etc. But that's a bit of common sense that even the most out-of-shape person knows, the hard part is doing what you know you should. If she can convince people to live more healthy, she is doing a great job. I only want to point out false, and potentially harmful, aspects of her articles. It's up to her clients and the readers of her articles to do their own research to decide what to believe. But I do feel the Nelson Daily should do their due diligence in making sure that they don't publish misleading or unsafe information as fact when it comes to health information. And that's why I'll continue to point out errors and misleading information - it's because I truly care about your safety Willy.

    On a side note Willy - don't you find it a bit suspicious that naturopaths have been lobbying (and sucessfully in BC) to be able to prescribe medications (the same meds that Big Pharma produces that you seem to hate so much!) just like real doctors? I always thought they were against so-called Big Pharma... but then they just want a piece of the pie like everyone else I guess.

    And Willy, why would someone want to ingest some untested, unregulated and unstudied chemicals, natural or not (difficult to say what's in something that isn't regulated or tested or approved by any third party), when you could take something that's been studied, regulated, inspected and proven safe in humans? Seems to be a bit of a gap in logic there.... but we all want to believe in something! And if you want to believe that the magical potions and herbs behind someone's counter are going to do the trick, more power to you! The mind can do powerful things to our decision making!

    You are so full of it Witherton! I have been to Dr. Gill, more than once and followed her advice, which I did. All I can say she has improved my overall health ten fold! I will not hesitate to go back to her in the near future.

    You sound like you work for the big Pharmaceutical companies the way you talk. HA!

  • Post Valentine’s Day POSITIVE STEPS TO A HEALTHY HEART   27 weeks 2 days ago

    Salmosam... 

    I don't get it. An article about loving your heart? You mean taking good care of your cardiovascular system? That's also what we care about, and we're pointing out her misinformation (which to be fair, isn't likely to be deliberate she just doesn't know any better). And what is a fake priest of science? I am not a priest (I don't preach some ideology which is unfounded, but Dr Gill does repeatedly), and I do actually have multiple science degrees so I don't get the fake suggestion (although Dr Gill calls herself a doctor which is a bit fake don't you think?).

    Very confusing Sam.

  • COMMENT: The War on the Poor   27 weeks 3 days ago

    The problem is not the poor on wellfare the real problem as always are the corporate bums on welfare as they have all the money but are not allowed to be taxed. As always the rich are going to get richer at the expense of the 99%. And the government will make sure it will stay that way as they know where their support comes from.

  • Post Valentine’s Day POSITIVE STEPS TO A HEALTHY HEART   27 weeks 3 days ago

    This article is about loving your heart which confuses these fake priests of science, who tell deliberate lies to confuse the readers. 

    Very disappointing

  • Post Valentine’s Day POSITIVE STEPS TO A HEALTHY HEART   27 weeks 3 days ago

    Look witherton, Dr Gill doesn't need facts to make her points.

    After all she is a naturopath and like the rest of them, she has been educated in a naturopathic school, none of which are affiliated with a university because their teachings are based on hearsay and devoid of scientific thought, reasoning or experimentation. Universities don't want to be associated with such nonsense. 

    You are right there are so many errors here that you can't chase them all. My for instance here is that alcohol is metabolized into sugar. If "Dr" Gill knew even basic first year biochemistry, she would know that alcohol is metabolized like fat (via Acetyl CoA) not sugar. 

    Want more made up stuff just call the number at the end of the article or just watch for her next fantasy piece. 

  • Post Valentine’s Day POSITIVE STEPS TO A HEALTHY HEART   27 weeks 4 days ago

    Again, for the umpteenth time, why does the Nelson Daily keep publishing these articles of misinformation - they could potentially cause harm to the reader's health - is this not reason enough to stop publishing these articles? At least put them in the Opinion section, because they are full of false information - and shouldn't responsible journalism and editing refuse to publish something as 'fact' if it is easily verified to be completely false?

    For instance:

    1. Coconut oil has the highest level of saturated fats out of any oil you can find in the grocery. According to this article? It has low amounts. A quick look at wikipedia and it's as clear as day. In fact, the World Health Organization, the American Heart Association, the American Diabetes Association, Dieticians of Canada, and NUMEROUS other associations all recommend NOT TO USE coconut oil because it is so harmful to your health, worsening your cholesterol and theoretically increasing your risk of heart attack, stroke and death. Yet what does this article report - SHE RECOMMENDS IT FOR THE EXACT OPPOSITE REASON. 

    I don't have time to point out all the innacuracies of these articles, but I still am so shocked these are continuously published - free advertising for something that is proven to be unsafe information. I hope the readers are better able to research these fabrications than the editors are - because otherwise they are putting their health in jeopardy.
