To The Editor:

Finn and I are writing to thank you, our donors, once again for your generous support for our GoFundMe effort.  Special thanks especially to our sponsors Ripping Giraffe Boardshop and Retallack Resort Catskiing as well as BC Snowboard, who really came through for us.

We'd like to give you a final update on the success that you helped create.

LETTER: Staff increases and personality evaluations urgently needed in senior facilities

LETTER: Staff increases and personality evaluations urgently needed in senior facilities

To the Editor:

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

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”.

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.

Letter: Just an Ordinary Day

Letter: Just an Ordinary Day

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.

Letter: Business owner frustration boils over

To The Editor:

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 made you aware of these concerns in early September, and have sent several subsequent emails, but I have yet to receive any type of reply.
