To the Editor:

Over the past five months the Executive of the Trafalgar Middle School Parent Advisory Council (PAC) felt that School District #8 has been on a destructive path, both in terms of how it was working with parents and its use of flawed criteria for selecting which students would be denied an educational opportunity offered through a public education...

Dear Editor;

The World Health Organization (WHO) has released a report in the past few weeks that states that people should exercise caution using cell phones and similar wireless device. I have recently learned that Fortis wants to remove our safe power meters and replace them with newer wireless meters that will transmit radiation waves throughout our homes every three minutes day and...

To the editor:

The Liberals have made the HST an interesting topic of study for political scientists around the world; not in a positive way mind you, but as a fine example of how NOT to implement a tax shift.

What started as a lie in an election has now evolved into Christy Clark's attempt to buy your vote by reducing the HST rate by...

Dear Editor;

I am so happy at the way the government is handling the harmonized sales tax (HST) question. It has assured me that although the head of the snake has been cut off, the rest of the snake continues to wiggle in deceit.

The head of the snake was forced to resign when his popularity and credibility fell below 10% but Gordie was recently appointed by Stevie Harper to the...

To the Editor:

It has been brought to my attention that gas prices have fallen 17 cents in the past three weeks, but not in Nelson.

It has been reported by people at the "Mall" that seniors are tired of paying through the nose for gasoline in Nelson, when all other surrounding cities have much cheaper gas prices.

Dear editor,

My recent expulsion from a Rossland City Council meeting has been widely reported.  What wasn’t reported was the events leading to that situation or the inaccurate, unfounded, and misleading statements presented by Mayor Granstrom.

I commend RCMP Constable Scott Powell for the professionalism he displayed in handling the situation.  I was impressed by his knowledge...

Budget fails to make life more affordable for Canadian families: Atamanenko

To the Editor,

Your story “Budget fails to make life more affordable for Canadian families: Atamanenko” is misleading. As Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification...

To the Editor:

We, the undersigned write to express our shock and revulsion following your publication on June 1st of an abhorrent caricature by notorious anti-Semitic cartoonist, Carlos Latuff.

While we favour a broad marketplace of ideas, those which contribute to hatred against the Jewish people have no place in a publication like...

To the Editor:

Bicycles should not be allowed in any natural area. They are inanimate objects and have no rights.

There is also no right to mountain bike. That was settled in federal court in 1994:

To the Editor,

Why are Bill Vander Zalm and Chris Delaney afraid of local voices? The B.C. government has announced it will hold HST public dialogues featuring speakers from the No and the Yes sides in 10 different communities across the province.

It is clear that the intent was to have local participation from both sides so that attendees would have access...
