While the Courts have said Canadians must have reasonable access to a legal source of marihuana for medical purposes, the Government of Canada believes this must be done in a controlled fashion in order to protect public safety.

On June 10, the Government of Canada announced the new Marihuana for Medical Purposes...

Dear Editor,

It is my pleasure to write a letter supporting the Red Mountain Academy.  I feel confident that an academic partnership between the Academy and Self Design High (SDH) will provide a favorable outcome for all involved; students, athletes and parents.  It will be a “win win” situation for all.

Online schooling has demonstrated success...

Open letter to Premier Christy Clark:
 
Dear Premier Christy Clark.

Your ambition to pay off BC’s debt, and not burden the next generation with it, is praiseworthy.

But, have you really thought about the big picture?

Money and debt is a man-made creation and is not real. Natural gas...

Dear editor,

It has recently been stated in a local news publication that “Rossland held the notorious tag as the fattest energy town in BC last year”. This deserves comment and correction.

Where on Earth does this myth originate? If this originates from the Energy Diet folks, they should do their homework before making such statements. A draft Community...

Dear editor,
 
Regardless of any particular election result, federal, provincial or municipal, certain truths remain self-evident. In the case of our two senior levels of government, excessive party discipline is slowly killing our democracy. In the May 14th BC provincial election barely 52 per cent of registered voters bothered to cast a ballot, down three per...

Many of my friends and I have been discussing politics lately with the Provincial Election happening next week. I, like the others, have been uncertain where my voice will be heard.

Who will represent me, and my conservative values of fiscal responsibility and free enterprise? Generally I vote Conservative but currently there...

I have seen the damage the “Liberal“ party has done to our province since being elected in 2001.

- Jumbo wild is a beautiful, pristine and magical place that needs to be protected. Christy Clark has ignored the enormous public protest of the people in the Kootenay’s and is bending the laws by setting up a municipality where there...

Neither Teck nor the BC government has denied the well documented facts reiterated by the recent selenium study quoted in Wildsight and its partners’ media release on the poisoning of the Elk River. 

B.C. Environment Minister Terry Lake reacted by the afternoon of our release stating that there would be no new coalmines...

A recent study out of the U.S. has generated much discussion about the health of the Elk River. 

As the operator of five steelmaking coal mines in the Elk Valley, which employ over 4,000 people who live in the region, we take environmental issues very seriously.

Our people raise their families in the Valley, fish in the...

Did you know Nelson now has $50,000 dollars of grant money in solar power panels? 

This is grid tie PV solar, or in other words, it is hooked to the power grid and if there is excess power the meter spins backwards making money. 

The data for the first system on a public building has been in place for two years now...
