Editor, The Nelson Daily
I would be remiss if I did not respond to Mr. Tony Brummet’s letter which appeared in (the media).
Interestingly, in an edition of the Osoyoos Times which appeared the same day there was an article paying tribute to Mr. Brummet for his many years of service to Osoyoos and to our province.  It is fitting...

Further to the letter I sent you yesterday, I regret to inform you that the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation has served notice of their intent to move to a full strike and withdrawal of services.

We would appreciate you including this letter of gratitude to the health professionals who so ably supported the birth of our child.

As I sit here writing this letter after holding my two-day-old healthy baby girl for three hours skin to skin on my chest with my wife Michelle recovering in the bed beside me I'm feeling so...

Dear Premier Clark:

The proposed changes to the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) in Bill 24, don't take into account that the ALR is just one leg of what should have been a two prong approach to agriculture from the start. While the ALR mostly succeeded in protecting our farm land, it did nothing for BC farmers,...

RE: Strike Action

As you are aware, negotiations between the BC Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) and the BC Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) are ongoing. From March 4 – 6, 2014, teachers across the Province held a strike vote.

I just watched P. M. Harper do his cold warrior toughest-man-on-the-block pose for the world's media. Here is a quote, more or less:

"We know from History, that those who make it their historical mission to turn back the clock, as Mr. Putin has done, will ultimately fail."

He added three fine adjectives to...

The headline in a March 23, 2014 article appearing in The Nelson Daily is misleading (at best) and there is some seriously self-serving spin in the content and quotes attributed to Mr. (John)...

ALR- Agricultural Land Reserve.

I had never given much thought to the ALR. Honestly, I took it for granted because it's just common sense to protect the farmland which feeds us, period.

The ALR town hall meeting in Nelson saw a room packed with people who care about food.


Because the BC government is...

Congratulations to the MIR Peace Lecture series for bringing in Chris Hedges for his extraordinary talk last Friday, February 28th.

Hedges covered a huge landscape of the world today in a little over an hour. He centered much of his message around the imagery of the novel Moby Dick. The author, Herman Melville, was a...

This week the BC Supreme Court ruled, for the second time, that the BC government broke the Constitution, twice when it stripped teachers of our working conditions.

Those working conditions kept class sizes small, ensured students had access to specialist teachers, and provided extra help to students with special needs. This...
