LETTER: Glowing commendation for Safeway managers
by Letters to the ... on Apr 18 2016 - 2:14pm

I wish to express my heartfelt appreciation and gratitude to Erica (Gregory), the pharmacy manager and Brian (Bogle), the store manager, of our local Safeway in Castlegar for going above and beyond expectations.

Due to human error, a component of my medication, which is vital to my well being and life, was not delivered to the store. Upon hearing of this, Erica began calling the local pharmacies and hospitals to inquire if the drug was in stock, to no avail.

Letter: Green Party candidate raises concern over TPP

Kootenay-Columbia Green Party Candidate, Bill Green

To the Editor:

I am deeply concerned about the misinformation being spread in our riding about the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Former Conservative MP Jim Abbott, now senior advisor to the David Wilks election campaign, trumpets the new trade agreement as “a gigantic achievement” and suggests the Elk Valley’s coal industry is at stake if Canada’s Parliament does not ratify it.

Letter: Government should not push through TPP trade agreement during campaign

Letter: Government should not push through TPP trade agreement during campaign

To The Editor:

The recently negotiated (Trans-Pacific Partnership) TPP trade agreement is another example of the Harper Conservatives trying to throw the Election in their favour.

Again Harper has shown his disdain for democracy by ignoring the Canadian Constitution.

According to our Constitution, when Harper dissolved Parliament early, as he did, that placed his Government under rules of the “caretaker convention”.

Letter: To vote strategically or to not vote strategically

Letter: To vote strategically or to not vote strategically

To The Editor:

In 2011, Stephen Harper convinced Canadians to give him a majority, and look how that turned out.  Harper used - some might say abused - this majority to bring in a vast amount of poorly conceived, highly partisan legislation - including all the omnibus budgets - badly done but rushed through Parliament with severely limited debate and rubber stamped by the Harper Senate. 

Take time to consider the options when you vote

Take time to consider the options when you vote

To The Editor:

With the two front runner candidates, (Wayne) Stetski (of the NDP) and (David) Wilks (of the Conservatives), currently locked at 37 percent in the local polls, those voters planning to vote either Green or Liberal need to know that their votes will only serve to help Wilks get re-elected.

Only if those of us who want the Harper Conservatives gone, vote together, will we have a chance to rid ourselves of the most undemocratic regime in Canada’s history.

Clean Energy Future Leaving Canada Behind

Clean Energy Future Leaving Canada Behind

To The Editor:

According to an article in Forbes magazine, Japan’s lost nuclear output since Fukushima has been half displaced by efficiency, frugality, and renewables. Renewables provide 13% of America’s energy, 33% of Italy’s, 46% of Spain’s, 50% of Scotland’s, over 50% of Denmark’s, and 64% of Portugal’s. Germany’s fossil-fueled generation hit a 35-year low; renewables were its biggest power source.

And what is Canada doing?

LETTER: Top two federal parties suppressing and oppressing working class Canada

LETTER: Top two federal parties suppressing and oppressing working class Canada

Is The US Dollar Collapsing, or is it Not? There are three schools of thought on where the US dollar is headed, some say it will be dead before Sept. 2015  is over. Some believe it is business as usual, while a third group points to the US dollar as deflating.

Now I’m a Canadian, and personally, I do not care who is right, or who is wrong. But, what I do care about, and what is abundantly clear to most  working class people, in Canada, is that back in the 1990s, good living wage  jobs came under attack, (with government help) they were dissected into  part-time jobs, and that (with government help) permanent living-wage (living  income) job creation was discontinued, and never restarted.
