Editor, the Rossland Telegraph:

I want to be wrong about this. I am only half certain. I think the BC NDP are heading for a defeat.
 
Premier Horgan has watched New Brunswick's election result and drawn a conclusion, but he is wrong about British Columbians. We are not tolerant of crude political tactics to sustain his power by an election one year ahead of...

In today’s landmark ruling in the Cambie Surgery Centre case, Justice Steeves dealt a strong blow to the efforts of Dr. Brian Day and others to undermine Canada’s publicly-funded health care system. The decade-long legal attack launched by one of the largest for-profit surgical centres in Canada sought to invalidate...

I am sorely perturbed with the amount of misinformation I have had to endure from friends, family and acquaintances. Particularly those with a penchant for using garbage news.

Good afternoon,

What have the B.C. and Canadian Governments got themselves and their taxpayers into?

The Zincton resort will host up to 1,500 skiers daily, a real estate and village development in the middle of the mountains, and year-round recreation in the middle of important wildlife habitat.
