LETTER: B.C. needs to fix its record of brutal inaction on poverty policy

Dear Editor,

In response to Deb McIntosh’s recent letter re: the Community Harvest Food  Bank’s struggles to assist families and individuals living in poverty, we suggest it is high time that our wealthy province makes  some meaningful policy changes so that the families of one in five children in BC don’t have to be dependent on charity to survive.

To The Editor:

As Black Friday has come and gone followed by the impending Christmas season I begin to worry about my days. I am fully in support of various causes and events of awareness but our 24 hour slots are quickly being consumed by 'special days'. Failing to stem the tide we risk finding ourselves with a day shortage.

Cyber Monday, Toonie Tuesday, Superbowl Sunday and Seniors Thursday leave only Wednesday, Friday and Saturday unclaimed.

'Floater' days remove a vast number more.

Dear Mayor Kozak, and City Councilors:

As a health care provider and a business in the City of Nelson I am appalled and extremely frustrated by your lack of action regarding the access issues your Stores to Shores project has created in front of my office.

I am writing to alert dog loving Nelsonites that the off leash dog park by the lake is no longer safe to visit.

Dear Ms Stead:

The Globe and Mail has just written off the Green Party of Canada as irrelevant as a result of the election numbers they have found. I suggest they do their sums again.

In the three provinces where the Green Party have an elected MP and/or an elected MLA the results were as follows:

To the Editor:

There is another important reason to vote out Harper that I have yet to see in print, so I bring it to voters’ attention now. Simply put, 4 more years of Harper risks ruining the tourism industry in the Kootenays.

Let me explain. Thanksgiving weekend my girlfriend and I made the long drive from Vancouver to the Kootenays to reconnect with friends in Nelson and to enjoy the wilds. We camped Sunday night by the shores of Slocan Lake. With utter quiet, we quickly fell to sleep.

To the Editor:

Kootenay Columbia voters should be worried there are candidates running for office who don’t understand the giant benefit of the Trans Pacific Partnership.
