EDITORIAL Recycling: More Questions Than Answers

As Rossland ponders the future of its recycling program, it’s worth giving some thought to the options under consideration and to the nature of recycling itself.

EDITORIAL: A Pro-Rogue Indeed

Stephen Harper can no longer be Prime Minister. Even though Governor-General Michaelle Jean has allowed Harper to prorouge parliament until January 26, when his government must table a budget, he has lost the moral right to lead our nation. When Harper went on television last night and tried to insist that his government was...

Guest Editorial: Child Poverty and Olympic Dreams in BC

As the international press learns this week how much it will cost them to cover the 2010 Winter Games, many activists hope to apprise them of how much they believe the Olympics are costing British Columbians.

Editorial: Rossland Telegraph Supports K-12 in Rossland

Rossland is at a crossroads. In uncertain economic times, and with our population dwindling (and our school-age population dwindling more quickly) we need to do everything we can to shore up the pillars of our community if we’re to survive in the long haul. One of those pillars, an essential one, we believe, is Rossland...

Editorial: Earning Our Whinge Wings

Editorial: How Many to Vote For?

It happens to me every three years, and it probably happens to you too. People come up to me around election time and say, “I really like candidates Tom, Dick, and Mary, but I don’t know much about the others—although I’ll never vote for that dastardly Brunhilde in a million years!” Then they pause and add, “But I don’t know...

Letter to the Editor: Improving Council's Communications With Residents

Dear Editor, During the all candidates forum, most folks at the front had something to say about improving council's communications with residents. I would like to suggest the debate surrounding the future development in Pinewood would be a good example of where council could start being proactive in their outreach. While...

Letter to the Editor: Pinewood

The great thing about democracy is the freedom and ability to voice one's opinion.

The potential development between Pinewood and Happy Valley is a case in point. The reality is...
