Letters to the Editor

Regarding your article “Speaking for Rosslanders – Council takes a stance on IPPs” and the discussion question you raise.

I agree with Mr. Kenyon that this is not an issue that Rossland Council should be getting into. The letter they are proposing to send to the Provincial Government certainly does not represent my views and seems to...

Dear Editor,

A leadership vacuum is developing at Rossland City Hall. As many people know by now, the City’s Administrator, Ron Campbell resigned  early last week.

I wish I could provide more details about his resignation but I can’t.  I  don’t know any details.  Mayor Greg Granstrom has refused to circulate Mr. Campbell’s letter of resignation to council and a meeting of...

Dear editor: Just a reminder that tomorrow, Thursday March 26th, is the day of action to keep our rivers wild and our power public. Every step of the way, this campaign has been successfully pushed forward by you. Without all of us out there talking to our family, friends and neighbours, this issue wouldn't be on front pages, TV screens, and radios, and in the hearts of minds of people all...

Dear editor, Rossland Council is in the process of adopting a water rates bylaw for 2009 that will impose significant rate increases on people who are least able to afford it - seniors living in apartments. The rate increases are based not on the amount of water used by residents in the apartments but primarily of the number of units in the building. According to examples provided to Council...

Dear Rachel Witter (and the many others who have voiced their comments in regard to the proposed project by Aquilini Renewable Energy): I am newly appointed as an RDKB Director as of the recent Municipal Elections. I welcome and encourage your letters and emails. I read every piece of correspondence I receive. Public input is a LARGE part of “due process”, and I am very cognizant that an elected...

I’ve just finished a fascinating read: ‘Old Fences, New Neighbors’ by Peter R Decker, the story of the ranching community in the Ouray valley of SW Colorado – mountain country, beautiful and remote, but a tough place to make a living. Geographically this area is not far from the ski resort town of Telluride, and a good part of the book does discuss the effects of in-migration and development on...

Thursday is recycling and garbage day here. The driveway was a sheet of ice. After doning coat, over nightgown, boots and kleats, I slide my way down the driveway with the 1st box. After one fall, I decided that was stupid and gave the next box and the garbage a push which sent them sailed to the bottom of the hill. Then I only had to position them. Recycling in Rossland in the winter is...

January 2008 Johan Kruus of Nordic Spirit Timberworks was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The tumor is a rare but aggressive form of cancer. Johan underwent brain surgery to have the tumor removed and then received radiation treatments and chemotherapy. As some of you know, Johan has also been pursing novel chemotherapy approaches and combining these with diet change, meditation, acupuncture and...

Dear Editor, Will Koop of the BC Tapwater Alliance has just released a report on the history of Rossland's watershed reserves: http://bctwa.org/RossResRep-Dec8-08.pdf The report is a very interesting and thorough description of Rossland's efforts over the last 85 years to protect our water supplies and the machinations of the provincial government to undermine the control we once had over...

Dear Rossland residents, Many thanks to the people of Rossland for electing me to City Council. I'm looking forward to this opportunity to serve our community and will do my best to justify your confidence in me. As we enter into the new term, I hope that you will remain (or become) actively engaged with local issues, and take full advantage of opportunities to funnel your input into...
