Ten years of serving you

Here we are 10.

Music to our ears

If you are a band student in School District No. 46 (SD46), news this week from the provincial government is music to your ears.

The art of protesting - the right way

Protesting - it can be a worthwhile and effective way of getting out an important message. Just ask many community groups here on the Coast who have done soeffectively in recent weeks and months. I have never had a problem with people protesting.

Budget a bust for B.C.

Monday's federal budget is a big disappointment -especially if you are a citizen of the province of B.C. Yes, the Conservatives did unveil more than $10 billion in goodies, including a child-tax benefit, a tax benefit for low-income families, $1.

Seeking a solution

The emergency room at St. Mary's Hospital will be staffed for the month of April.

Newspapers alive and recovering

Gone are the days of Joseph Pulitzer, Edward R. Murrow, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. Gone are the times when people relied on daily newspapers and their favourite evening anchor for the news.

Time to butt out

If you're a smoker, you probably want to stop reading this column. If you're not, feel free to keep reading. The provincial government has taken major steps to reduce tobacco use by putting some pretty tough smoking regulations in place.

The time for change is now

I may be many things in this world, but stupid is not one of them. That being said, there are some things I will never understand. One in particular stands out.

Life line needs life support

This Wednesday was another day from hell in the winter that just won't end. For anyone unlucky enough to be travelling north from Gibsons, slippery snow on top of black ice made the trip a nightmare.

In my mommy shoes

There are people I've wished could walk a mile in my shoes, if not to see things my way, at least to understand where I'm coming from. My sister is one of those on the list. She is 10 years older than me and perceived as that much wiser.
