Kevin Pearce is a remarkable young man.

Last (Thursday) night at the Civic Theatre screening of The Crash Reel, he...

To Our SD8 (Kootenay Lake) Community

The purpose of this message is to advise you that recently CUPE Local 748 has...

Remembrance Day this year put me in a terrible, conflicted quandary. I really couldn't figure out what to do.

I think Remembrance Day is important, in its original sense of remembering the terrible sacrifices and pain of war. It came out of World War I, the war to end wars, and I think the key message was: Lest we...

Have you participated in a research project or know of anyone who has?

The Interior Health Authority’s decision to reduce Emergency services to Kalso will only result in hardship to the members of that community, and those members who live in outlying communities which are serviced by Kaslo. 

Contrary to The Ministry of Health’s strategic goal #3 which speaks to accessibility of timely, safe, and...

I am writing on behalf of the Consulting Foresters of BC, who have members who live and work in the Kootenay Region, to express unease that the Duhamel Watershed Alliance are learning how to take nonviolent
action as a means of halting Kalesnikoff Lumber’s logging plans (Nelson Star - September 5).

Doesn’t it just cream your corn when you witness a situation that you have no control over?  One knows there is a problem and it needs to be solved however, helplessness seems to control the moment.  Am I the only person with skull cramps caused by incomprehension of our health system?

After receiving the video link to Raising the Curtain, Maia and I were overwhelmed with the amount of energy, work and talent that went...
