To The Editor:

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...

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...

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.

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...

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...

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"...

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.

To The Editor:

I cannot believe the new system that City Hall has instituted now with garbage pick up.

First garbage was included with my taxes and then the city decides to charge as they think that the service is not paying for itself. No proof was ever given of such a monetary loss. Now the new mode is to leave your garbage in a bag by the curb or lane...

To The Editor:

Where is BC’s leadership on climate change? Moving first can be risky. Doubt says leaping into the clean energy economy is like coming to the edge of a mountain pool and you cry “Lets jump in!” everybody responds “Great idea!”, so you bound into the air and just before landing in the water you turn and see that nobody has followed.

To The Editor:

Climate science makes rapid advancements while many national policies move backwards. Tragically, we have already entered the rapidly increasing phase of climate change, in which impacts increase nonlinearly. Until recently, we have been protected by the inherent strength of the environment: it can withstand a lot of punishment before it begins...
