EDITORIAL: Fear-Mongering Invades Rossland
by Sara Golling on Nov 26 2016 - 2:33pm

A reader has notified me of a disturbing incident.  It was just paper -- three pages of it -- tacked to a fence in downtown Rossland, but the reader reported that it was an attempt to spread hate in our Mountain Kingdom.  The targets were the usual ones that bigots love to hate:  "liberal,"  feminist, Jewish,  LGBTQ;  and the tone, said the reader, was "hateful, aggressive and belligerent."

LETTER: Dear Erwin Malzer — What can you be thinking?

To The Editor:

Dear Erwin Malzer:

This is to register my strongest objection to your crass and anti-social decision to kill 29 jobs in Nelson and something like 70 other family supporting jobs by centralizing and PRIVATIZING this service.

What can you be thinking?

Once again we are exposed to the kind of efficiency-at-any-cost philosophy of a corporation that might make car parts.

I have been keeping track of the Senior Advocates reports which are an excellent example of extensive research that outlines all aspects of the care that our seniors are receiving in this province.

Letter: Urgent need to reduce emissions

Letter: Urgent need to reduce emissions

To The Editor:

With the Paris Climate Agreement, leaders’ world-wide overwhelmingly accepted that human-caused climate change is real and, because the world continues to increase fossil fuel use, the need to reduce emissions is urgent.

 Why are our politicians contemplating spending billions on pipelines when the Paris commitment means 75 to 80 per cent of known fossil fuel deposits must be left in the ground?

What's the Business Case for Kinder Morgan and Energy East

What's the Business Case for Kinder Morgan and Energy East

To The Editor:

Building either Kinder Morgan and/or the Energy East pipeline should be challenged from the perspective of asking why Canada is exporting oil when we are importing it as well? 

Letter: Lot of work ahead for Canadians

Letter: Lot of work ahead for Canadians

To The Editor:

Canada drew upon its compassion during the Paris Climate Summit.  Knowing that if our carbon emissions continue unchanged, some of the earliest and most tangible consequences are to island nations in the southern hemisphere.

They will be overwhelmed by the rising sea level, lives and livelihoods lost, and so we made a commitment: A pledge that we would not allow rising global temperatures to exceed 1.5 degrees Celsius.

It’s a remarkable promise, since October 2016 saw a 1 degree global rise in temperature.

Letter: Paris Climate Summit, A historic first

To The Editor:

Negotiations are difficult by nature.  Managing negotiations between 195 countries is nearly impossible.  This was the dilemma facing the negotiators of the Paris climate Summit.  To solve it they brought in a unique management strategy.

The trick to getting through over-complicated negotiations comes from the Zulu people of South Africa, called “induba”.
