I have occasionally been critical of the way we do politics. The recent leaders’ debate on electoral reform provides me with material to explain.

A few residents of Rossland, and several in Trail, may awaken at 6:00 on Sunday, November 11th, to the haunting strains of bagpipes playing “When the Battle is Over.” 

At that time and date, exactly one hundred years ago, the Allies and Germany signed the Armistice of Compiègne, which marked the end of the fighting on the Western Front, and ultimately led to the end of the...
