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...

In today’s landmark ruling in the Cambie Surgery Centre case, Justice Steeves dealt a strong blow to the efforts of Dr. Brian Day and others to undermine Canada’s publicly-funded health care system. The decade-long legal attack launched by one of the largest for-profit surgical centres in Canada sought to invalidate...

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...

To The Editor:

In this global climate crisis, when the world needs to reduce its CO2 emissions, it seems counter-intuitive to consider extending a coal mine in the Elk Valley (Castle Project). 

 Consider the following:

To The Editor:

Good afternoon,

I just returned to work after a lunch break walk up and down Baker Street, which I do regularly. I have to say, I'm quite disappointed at the lack of respect people are paying to physical distancing and the prevention of the transmission of COVID.

I was wearing a mask and so were maybe, six (6) other people out of...

To The Editor:

The BC government is asking for public input on how to set priorities for our province over the coming months. At the core of the discussion is how the $1.5 billion Economic Recovery Fund will be spent, as well as plans for next year’s budget.

Wildsight encourages all to fill out the government survey and participate in the upcoming...
