Natural Selection: Who Deserves to Rule Human Society?


“And if you call me brother now, forgive me if I ask –

‘According to whose plan?’

When it all comes down to dust,

I will kill you if I must. I will help you if I can.

When it all comes down to dust,

I will help you if I must. I will kill you if I can.”

Leonard Cohen, Song of Isaac (1969)

EDITORIAL: The CBC -- Boon or Boondoggle?

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) is Canada's national radio and television broadcaster -- loved by many, reviled by others.  Its exact date of origin may be open to interpretation; its predecessor, the Canadian Radio Broadcasting Commission, was established as a state-owned company  in 1932, following a  1929 report  that raised concerns about  Canadian airwaves being taken over by American radio.  In 1936, the organization was re-created as a Crown Corporation and re-branded with its present name.

Philosophy Returning to Selkirk College

Dr. Jonathan Vanderhoek will teach Philosophy 101 at Selkirk, starting in January.

Students will have the opportunity to explore questions at the very heart of human existence as Philosophy 101 returns to the School of University Arts & Sciences at Selkirk College in January.

This intro-level philosophy course focuses on the nature of human reality. Students will discuss metaphysical issues such as self-identity, free will, and the relationship between the mind and the body. They will also examine issues in value theory including the nature of aesthetic judgment, the foundations of morality, and problems of social justice.

COLUMN: Tread Lightly

Too much stuff?

How much stuff will you give and receive this holiday season? Add it to the growing pile — the 30-trillion-tonne pile. That’s how much technology and goods humans have produced, according to a study by an international team led by England’s University of Leicester. It adds up to more than all living matter on the planet, estimated at around four trillion tonnes.

On Sunday, December 18, Rossland’s Joe Hill Coffee House invites you to an evening of eclectic  entertainment by  talented performers in our community.

It’s in the Rossland Legion, 2081 Washington Street,  while the Miners’ Hall is being renovated, but it’s the same Joe Hill Coffee House as always – coffee, tea and goodies for a good cause (no bar), nice surroundings, good sound.

Doors open at 6:00 PM; the show starts at 7:00.  Adults pay only  $3 each;  kids and students get in free.

Editorial: Seven Summits Centre For Learning is now partnered with SD 71; how is that working?

See video

Thanks to the Seven Summits Centre for Learning (Seven Summits), Rossland still has Kindergarten to Grade 12  (K -12) education within its city limits.  When School District 20 decided to close Maclean Elementary School, sell that building and move its former students into the former Rossland Secondary School building, and bus Grade 10, 11 and 12 students down the hill to the brand-new J.L Crowe Secondary School, a group of Rosslanders dedicated to maintaining K - 12 education within Rossland got busy. Very busy.  And so Seven Summits was born.
