We recently highlighted the faulty logic of a pseudoscientific argument against addressing climate change: the proposition that because CO2 is necessary for plants, increasing emissions is good for the planet and the life it supports. Those who read, write or talk regularly about climate change and ecology are familiar with other anti-environmental arguments not coated with a scientific sheen...

Rejoice, Rosslanders! Rossland will receive a sprinkling of money from the federal and provincial governments to help with the Spokane Street infrastructure replacement project.  This will help keep our taxes from rising faster and further, and it will make our water supply more secure, and keep us from spending a lot of money treating storm-water instead of just sewage at the treatment plant...

Be aware:  if anyone phones you and asks for funds for a Search and Rescue group, it's a scam.  " We cannot state clearly enough, not one of the 80 recognized SAR groups in British Columbia, ask for donations by phone.  And neither do any of the recognized air or marine search and rescue groups in BC.  Simply put, if you receive a phone call asking you to donate to search and...

In 2011, I travelled with my family down Yukon’s Hart River. It’s one of seven pure rivers in the Peel River watershed, a 68,000-square-kilometre wilderness that’s been at the centre of a legal dispute for many years and a land-use planning debate for more than a decade. For two weeks, we fished from the river’s vibrant green waters and gazed at the limestone and dolostone peaks of the Ogilvie...

 A recent documentary film, " A New Economy," explores what might happen if working together for the common good were to become the most common business model.

Can the world be saved?  Can co-operation save us? Or can global capitalism, with its dependence on the infinite exponential economic growth demanded by return on investment, continue unabated without exhausting the resources...

When the weather here was very cold -- remember that, back in February? -- a group of Rossland's young people decided to have a little taste of how homeless people live.  They camped out overnight at Harry LeFevre Square -- to raise awareness of homelessness in local communities, and to raise funds for a project called "Getting to Home."

And their Winter Campout for Homelessness did...

Apparently, fossil fuel companies protect watersheds and rivers by removing oil. That’s according to comments on the David Suzuki Foundation Facebook page and elsewhere, including this: “The amount of contamination occuring [sic] from extraction is far less than if we just left the oil there to continue polluting the waterways.”

The “logic” of climate change deniers and anti-...

In my few years of reporting on Rossland City Council, I have observed different styles of interaction between Council members, and between Council and the public; I have observed different concerns and priorities.  But always, our City Councils seem to have been concerned to do the best thing for Rossland and its people -- according to the values of our Council members of the time.  Yes,...
