Like many Canadians, I was shocked to hear Canada Post’s announcement that it was planning to eliminate home delivery services, pursue the privatization of postal outlets, increase postal rates and lay off between 6,000 and 8,000 postal workers. The Canada Post Act doesn’t call upon Canada Post to make a profit at any cost. The three major mandates are service to all...

In late September, at a Council meeting packed with public wanting to talk about Cooke Ave. rezoning and broadband, Council noted its in-camera decision at meeting two weeks earlier in which they voted not to renew the contract of the City’s Manager of Planning, Mike Maturo.
Maybe it’s that there was so much other news going on then, or maybe it’s that I’ve just...
I am appalled by the decision of the Federal Election Boundaries Commission to separate Nelson from Trail and Castlegar with whom we have community, geographical and economic links.
Nelson has been moved into a new riding called Kootenay Columbia which includes Cranbrook. I attended the public meeting held by the Commission in Nelson along with approximately 20...
A decade or so ago Rossland engaged in a series of municipal exchanges with city officials from the city of Nyanga in Zimbabwe.

My wife and I spent 16 years out of country and...
It has come to our attention that Tourism Rossland has identified money designated under a line “Visitor Centre” to be re-directed to fund a free shuttle bus to Red Mountain in the winter.
The money listed under the line “Visitor Centre” in the city’s budget is, in fact, destined to go towards the “Museum Gateway Project”...
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...
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...
