I will agree completely with anyone who claims the issues we untangle below are petty, but we at the Telegraph feel obliged to defend ourselves against a number of unsubstantiated attacks leveled against our news coverage and editorials—specifically mine—by certain members of council who dislike what we’ve written.
Two weeks ago we reported a ...
[In response to a letter by Henry Van Der Molen, published in the Rossland Telegraph on 11 June 2011]
We note that Mr. Van Der Molen is a contract sprayer with Supergreen
Lawn and Tree Care, hardly an impartial by-stander, which explains his
support for B.C.'s status quo.
I am retired middle-level public servant who is...
To the editor,
I have to say, the article by Ms. Daghofer and Ms. Sears (PhD) (I could not find her name in the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario's researchers list) was an interesting read. Apparently the Special Committee on Cosmetic Pesticides is placing a blind faith in Health Canada's Pest management Regulatory Agency.
What a telling statement "placing blind faith" is,...
Dear Rossland Secondary School and Parent Advisory Committee:
We would like to thank you for inviting us to your sixtieth anniversary of the High School. It was very special for our classes of 1951 and 1952.
We were very impressed with the tour of the school led by two knowledgable students, Clara and Alexandria. They easily answered our many...
In reading the May 23 OPED “Pushing the West OUT of Canada” I was shocked at the hateful level of vitriol and misrepresentation being expressed by the author. To suggest that NDP leader Tom Mulcair, or any other New Democrat MP would consider “screwing the West” to win seats in Eastern Canada is a slanderous attack based purely on fiction.
It would appear that the...
Do you have an idea or program that addresses the health, social or environmental challenges facing BC communities? Do you know someone who does?

The Editor, The Nelson Daily:
Calls to end the infamous 'War on Drugs' don't just come from the funny dressed hairy crowd anymore.
Over the decades a number of Canadian senate committees have called for an end to it and the conservative Fraser Institute has condemned it since 2001.
Last June the United Nations Global Commission on Drugs Policy put it this...
Wilf was having trouble with his horses. He’d spent a long day with his team packing loads up to the mines; all he wanted now was a cold beer in the local saloon. But first he had to park his horses. In the past, no problem, just tie them up side by side to the hitching rail on the sidewalk, give ‘em a bit of hay, and they’re happy.
But now there’s this new law...
Dear Rick Hansen:
I hope that during your next 25 years of raising money for spinal cord research (SCR) we will see the end of inhumane, scientifically fallacious spinal cord experiments on animals. It was 25 years ago when Lifeforce, a Vancouver based ecology and animal rights organization, gave you extensive data about the failure of “animal models” but you went on to fund animal...
