Ask anyone who has lived under a dictatorship and they will tell you of its ugly features: A Supreme Leader who rules with an iron fist; legislation pushed through by a rubber stamp legislative assembly with little or closured debate; government officials ordered into silence or fearful of speaking up; and a press denied the right to even ask questions, let alone get any answers.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the heroes and heroines and martyrs of Libya, and with our brave correspondent in Tripoli, now under fire. Communication is on and off, mainly off. Here is her most recent report. Since she sent it the phone lines have been cut entirely and the city’s electricity is also disconnected.

I live in the Ben Ashour area of Tripoli. Minutes ago my...

To the Editor,

During the week of Jan. 3, CBC Vancouver ran an exposé on organized crime laundering money in Vancouver area gambling casinos. 

The allegations put forth in this exposé are very serious and probably true. They are another black stain on the record of the Gordon Campbell government.

To help...

To the Editor,

As most people will recall, the NDP sent out a cartoonish flyer last fall, which discussed the Canada-European Union: Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement, also known simply as CETA. 

Since then, there has been much discussion about the issue and recently, our current MP has spent time criticizing both...

To the Editor,

Thanks for the recent article in The Nelson Daily.

I am totally opposed to a ski resort in this area. Who wants it exactly? Developers? Government? I don't get it. Is it another way to get Albertans to spend oil money in BC?

A year round ski resort makes no sense to me. People don't have enough of winter by April? I would rather...

Open Letter:
To begin, our family would like to thank the community of Grand Forks, Constable Bell and our Victim Service Worker Catherine Riddle for their overwhelming support and kindness. Words cannot express the loss our family has suffered, nor the horror of having to do it in such a public way.
We have heard repeatedly that the mental health...

Dear editor,

This summer, the Canadian Cancer Society wants to remind the community to practice sun safety while enjoying the outdoors. Natural sunlight is important for good health.  However, too much exposure to the sun’s rays can cause skin cancer and eye problems. Being safe in the sun can go a long way toward protecting you and your family.

Sun burns and sun damage build up...
