Thankfully Rossland has so far been able to maintain a great balance between real town and resortification. Here's a biting sarcastic look at the mountain resort world. Worth a watch, a few pensive thoughts and some laughs for sure.

This is a cut and paste of a comment I found on the Tyee. It has a lot on interesting information about taxation in BC. Quote: How appropriate that the "Vancouver Sun" should today publish a summary of a new report by the CCPA that demonstrates why the BC Liberals were forced to rush out the HST so soon after the 2009 provincial election.

Every two weeks, we put out our blue boxes full of recyclable swag to be picked up and be recycled.

Remember the sidewalk bins that facilitated so much mess downtown last summer? The Bear Smart committee is recruiting sponsors for a solar powered trash compactor garbage bin or a returnable bin for a 3 month summer trial on Columbia Ave. A successful trial period provides our city an option to budget for purchase of a year round solution to garbage and returnable’s after the Columbia Ave...
