Although small, I understand the fermentation process does produce CO2, a known greenhouse gas (GHG) and as such contributes to climate change, much in the same way that flatulence emits methane – a much more potent GHG.

In terms of scale, however, the burning of fossil fuels is by far the most significant emitter.

On Feb. 27, the Selkirk College Board of Governors will vote on whether to once again increase tuition fee rates for the coming academic year. Students are reasonably agitated – the College has increased fees every year for over a decade. From 2008/09 to 2017/18, arts program tuition fees, on which average tuition fees are estimated, increased 19 percent at Selkirk College.

Tuition fees...

Some of my resolution for 2018 involves understanding my behavior. 

I drive a gas powered vehicle and understand that the exhaust emissions are a form of pollution.  I try to limit the use of that vehicle by planning an “errand day”, when there are a lot of stops, or sidewalks have yet to be cleared. Walking is still an option, if I’m not...

Dear John Horgan:

Without beating around the bush, this is a “Dear John” letter, both literally and figuratively.  I know that we have only been hanging out for the past months, but my relationship with the NDP goes back quite a ways, long before you came on the scene.  Unfortunately, we have come to a place of...
