To The Editor:

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.

There was very little...

To The Editor:

More funding might help our seniors if they are in a publicly owned facility. A few more staff and maybe an extra therapist. But history shows that more funding has not improved the quality of care in "for profit" or even "non-profit" facilities.

The taxpayers shelled out more money in 2010 when the client rate was increased which...

To The Editor:

Donald Trump and Justin Trudeau, democratically-elected leaders, have a similar problem with social licence.

Trudeau admits he needs it for his fossil-fuel development policies such as new pipelines. Trump does not admit -- it but he too needs social licence for many of his policies, as Nixon needed social licence in 1971 for his...

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...

To The Editor:

I happened to be in downtown Nelson recently and appreciated the huge job the City still has to do.  At the same time, I appreciate why so many people are walking on the roads – many sidewalks continue to be impassible. 

Many local residents missed the boat in not clearing successive snow falls ; but choosing to wait until the task seems...
