To The Editor:

Top international lawyers to draft definition of "Ecocide" 75 years after Crimes Against Humanity and Genocide coined at Nuremberg.

It’s an extraordinary moment to be launching this project as the first international trials are remembered at Nuremberg. 75 years on, humanity faces a new and global threat: climate and ecological crisis...

Rob Morrison’s Fall 2020 Newsletter is both disappointing and concerning.

Disappointing because it’s been over a year since the 2019 Federal election and this is only the second time we’ve heard from our MP.

I say only the second time because Canada’s House of Commons encourages regular communication between MPs and their constituents, covering the costs of designing, printing...

To The Editor:

I just received a campaign flyer from my MP Rob Morrison.  I have some concerns about the content.  There is a certain luxury to being in opposition in that you don’t have to have demonstrated your performance in the situation for which you are being critical. 

The endorsement from other party members intended to add credibility to the...

(The following Letter has been sent to)

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland:

Two new reports have come to my attention which I wish to share with you both.

The first is by David Hughes, a renowned energy expert, and written for the Canadian...

To the Editor:

Imagine it's October, 2030. That special four year old in your life will be fourteen. Will the skies be filled with smoke? Will there still be caribou? Will Kootenays communities have drinkable water? 

What kind of a life will children be inheriting? And what are you willing...

To The Editor:

As a constituent in the Federal riding of Kootenay – Columbia, I wanted to find out how the values and issues of my newly elected representative and his Party aligned with my own.

The obvious solution for that would be to write my representative and ask.  It actually started before the Federal election, when I asked questions on the then...

Dear Dr. Henry,

Thank you profusely, Dr. Henry, for everything you and your ministry staff have done these past many months to safeguard British Columbians from the suffering of the global novel coronavirus (COVID 19) pandemic.

I am a sixty-six year old Extinction Rebellion climate activist residing in Victoria, and am writing to share my recent...

Editor, the Rossland Telegraph:

I want to be wrong about this. I am only half certain. I think the BC NDP are heading for a defeat.
 
Premier Horgan has watched New Brunswick's election result and drawn a conclusion, but he is wrong about British Columbians. We are not tolerant of crude political tactics to sustain his power by an election one year ahead of...

To The Editor:

I am sorely perturbed with the amount of misinformation I have had to endure from friends, family and acquaintances. Particularly those with a penchant for using garbage news.

As a student I was shocked when an English teacher remarked that my arguments would have been much better if I had used the Encyclopedia Britannica as a source...

I will start with one word, “unacceptable.”  That is how I, and many others view your plan.  The theory of it is sound, based on what we have learned with the various epidemiological crises of our times, beginning with the first SARS outbreak of 2003.  There is no argument about the benefits of physical distancing, frequent and thorough hand washing, and the benefits of wearing a mask in...
