This is the NDP's election to lose provincially.

However, according to a Mainstreet poll, more voters in the Interior would prefer to have the Green Party hold the balance of power in the BC legislature than elect an NDP majority government. So who do we vote for in Nelson-Creston? I like Tanya Wall, based on my experience of working with...

Nelson's new Kootenay food co-op and condo development needs a new store entrance.

I feel the entrance to the Co-op is likely illegal and is an accident waiting. The project manager for this new building and city should be asked to pay for a new entrance or create a barrier that prevents an accident.

The issue of problems with the quality of care in senior facilities has been widely reported in the last year which has been confirmed by the Senior Advocates Reports.

I have gone through the Day Care scenario with my children as a single parent and then again as a Granny with my G'Children and NOW as a Great Granny, we're in the same position:

Be employed to pay for Day Care and believe me, Day Care workers deserve every $$ they get or, stay home and hope to find a home-based business to help you...

Demos, the people, Kratos, to rule, put them together and you get democracy, the people rule. Not political parties, not political leaders, but you and I, the people rule.

An open Valentine to Justin Trudeau:

Dear Justin:

Please don't break my heart. You promised to reform Canada's voting system so that our votes would be fairly represented. A promise is a promise and there is nothing dearer to my heart that democracy. 

If you break this promise you will break my heart and I promise you that my...
