Letter: BC’s Future – Forward or Backward?
by Letters to the ... on May 16 2017 - 7:08pm

To The Editor:

The election “results” are not yet final, but  there is a lot to learn from the process. Strong Liberal support in the past has weakened. “Green” has expanded substantially. Not a lot of change with the NDP, but significant.    Issues of housing affordability;  infrastructure – hospitals, schools; climate change and fossil fuel use, First Nations rights, jobs and the economy were clearly answered by electors and the  “new government”, whoever that turns out to be.

To The Editor:

The mydemocracy.ca survey that the government has invited all households to take part in, has been designed to confuse and ultimately dodge the vital issue of fair voting (proportional representation) in Canada.

The postcard invites Canadians to take part in the national "conversation" on electoral reform however the survey is the furthest thing from a conversation.

LETTER: Senior services sorely lacking

LETTER: Senior services sorely lacking

Dear Editor,

On behalf of a large concerned group of students and local community members, it has come to our attention that there is a lack of senior support financially in the Kootenays, let alone across the province.

The local Senior outreach and support program (SOS) under the Castlegar district community services that has made an incredible difference in our local community, and their funding have been cut as of April 2017.

Regarding the mayors recent article putting Nelson in the top 10 of North American cities moving into the high speed digital internet world. 

Anyone in the technical field knew the city couldn't play in the sandbox with Telus or Shaw.  When I first heard of this I said when the big boys come to town they will be squashed like a bug. They have just been squashed.

LETTERS: Rebels executive needs more accountability

Dear Editor/Public:

During the last year I have been asking questions of the Castlegar Hockey Society's executive (Rebel executive). I attended the AGM, became a Member in Good Standing and have continued to ask questions, which is my right and my obligation, to make sure this executive is acting in a responsible manner.

I have asked for clarification on items, I have asked that they keep a complete and accurate recording of all meetings and I have asked for documents pertaining to contracts signed on behalf of the membership.

Letter: The Good News of Climate Action Economics

To The Editor:

The Paris Agreement on climate change garnered enough signatories, and went into force Friday.  Economists see it as a framework for cooperation among countries, those not pulling their weight may suffer penalties such as trade sanctions. Meanwhile, some astute multinational corporations are already seeing the positive economic benefits of climate action.

To The Editor:

I was pleased to attend the opening of the newly renovated pool at the Nelson and District Community Complex recently.

The facility is gorgeous and the staff did a really great job in getting it completed.  I and my family look forward to years of uninterrupted use.  Before the ceremony started every person was handed an information sheet with frequently asked questions on it. 

The second last question was about funding and I will quote the question and answer directly.
