Letters to the Editor

Dear editor,

I would like to say how wonderfull it is to live in a city where you can walk up the street and ski and walk on a groomed trail! I thank the city for being progressive by funding the grooming of Centennial trail, so that folks can walk to a trail that they ski, snowshoe or walk on, instead of having to get in their car and drive somewhere to be active.

It makes getting...

Dear editor,

I am taking the CCSW (Classroom and Community Support Worker) program at
Selkirk College. I am at the end of the fall semester and it was a wild and
crazy time, so much coming at you so fast, but have truly enjoyed and learned
so much.

I’ve always wondered if I was being politically correct in my naming words
that went with those that I will...

If a plunge in the river is not your bag

If you’re finding your muscle tone starting to sag

If your head is still aching from the evening before

If your back feels tired and your legs are sore

If you ate too much and your belly is groaning

If you want to be happy and are fed up with moaning

Then try something different that gets your blood racing

Dear editor,

I would like to commend the Telegraph's discussion with Nelson and Creston on their recreation infrastructure improvements and resultant tax increases. These were very timely considering Rosslands problem with our arena roof,  i.e. 'should council have commenced studies on whether to take up the grant of $400K to repair the arena roof?'

My thoughts on...

Dear editor,

The time has come to legalize marijuana, tax it, and create a few hundred thousand jobs. Marc Emery is currently waiting to see if we will let the US extradite him, to face a possible life sentence for selling seeds on the internet.

44% of Canadians have admitted to smoking weed, leading to the obvious conclusion that millions of Canadians currently possess marijuana...

Dear editor,

All the fresh, new snow has certainly got everyone in the community excited about going skiing or riding this season. And that’s a good thing. We like to see people playing in the snow! As a seasonal reminder, please take great care if you plan on touring or hiking either Red or Granite Mountains prior to our official opening day.

There are many early season...

Dear editor,

Last week the three male judges of the BC Appeal Court ruled that they agreed
with the rules of the International Olympic Committee and the female ski jumpers were banned in partaking in the 2010 Games.

In other words, the I.O.C. regulations overrule the human rights laws that are supposed to protect the citizens of this weak-kneed country.

One can only...

Dear Editor,

In response to your article entitled "French court convicts Scientology of organized fraud" on October 28, 2009. We are blessed to live in a country that embraces the multifaith nature of our rich Canadian society.

We pride ourselves on building a pluralistic world of peace, understanding and acceptance of...

Johan is the son of Annie and the late Peeter Kruus and the brother of Anders, Martin, and Linda. He is also family to Anne and Michael, Darrel and Dianna, and...
