Letter: The tale of two political leaders

To The Editor:

Donald Trump and Justin Trudeau, democratically-elected leaders, have a similar problem with social licence.

Trudeau admits he needs it for his fossil-fuel development policies such as new pipelines. Trump does not admit -- it but he too needs social licence for many of his policies, as Nixon needed social licence in 1971 for his aggressive war-waging policy in Viet Nam (bombing the North, Laos and Cambodia with more tonnage than was dropped in WWII).

Dear Editor,

Since 2001, tuition has increased annually for Selkirk College students..

The issue of problems with the quality of care in senior facilities has been widely reported in the last year which has been confirmed by the Senior Advocates Reports.

As a result of these reports, the citizens of BC have been expecting some news of improvements concerning staffing levels, enforcement procedures and enhanced training.

Letter: No problem for $10 daycare

Letter: No problem for $10 daycare

To The Editor:

I have gone through the Day Care scenario with my children as a single parent and then again as a Granny with my G'Children and NOW as a Great Granny, we're in the same position:

Be employed to pay for Day Care and believe me, Day Care workers deserve every $$ they get or, stay home and hope to find a home-based business to help you survive.

I would have no problem having the Government set up a Provincial CRA deduction to contribute to $10 day care.

Demos, the people, Kratos, to rule, put them together and you get democracy, the people rule. Not political parties, not political leaders, but you and I, the people rule.

Letter: Don't break my heart Justin

Letter: Don't break my heart Justin

An open Valentine to Justin Trudeau:

Dear Justin:

Please don't break my heart. You promised to reform Canada's voting system so that our votes would be fairly represented. A promise is a promise and there is nothing dearer to my heart that democracy. 

If you break this promise you will break my heart and I promise you that my broken heart will remain open to every possible way to ensure your party is defeated next election.

With Love (for fair Democratic representation),

Letter: Snow Removal in Nelson

Letter: Snow Removal in Nelson

To The Editor:

I happened to be in downtown Nelson recently and appreciated the huge job the City still has to do.  At the same time, I appreciate why so many people are walking on the roads – many sidewalks continue to be impassible. 

Many local residents missed the boat in not clearing successive snow falls ; but choosing to wait until the task seems impossible.

Letter: Left at the voting alter by the Prime Minister

Letter: Left at the voting alter by the Prime Minister

To The Editor:

The Liberal Government under Justin Trudeau has chosen to abandon its commitment to reform our voting system. This is something that the Canadian voting public should not take laying down.

Our voting system stands at the core of our democratic process and represents our most fundamental democratic right. Our current "first past the post" voting system is outdated and does not reflect the wishes of the voting public.

Letter: City of Nelson please re-think new garbage rules

Letter: City of Nelson please re-think new garbage rules

To The Editor:

I am a person with a physical disability who is writing to voice my displeasure over the new garbage rules. 

These new garbage rules are whack. I understand less weight, but I am a person with a physical disability, who thankfully has nice neigbours who are willing to put out my garbage and recycling out on the morning of garbage day.
