Time for a bypass

Sep 25, 2015 / 12:28 pm

The Okanagan is truly a treasure of British Columbia. The only thing it has going against it is Hwy 97 that plows through Kelowna, WestBank and Peachland. If...

Trudeau is amazing

Sep 24, 2015 / 1:32 pm

I adore the fact that Trudeau has, yet again, shoved his misleading Fiberal foot into his own mouth. Justin, it was the Liberals under Chretien in 1999 that...

What's the fuss?

Sep 23, 2015 / 12:52 pm

What is the big fuss about what Clark says and how she says it? After all, she is of your generation. How often I find people today acting like they are...

F-35 aircraft

Sep 23, 2015 / 12:48 pm

Regardless what the Conservatives and the NDP say, Canada has no contract to buy the F-35. Trudeau is bang on by saying he will cancel this huge possible...

Re: Ripped off at the pumps. The excuse for us being ripped off at the pumps is “there is no competition," ie: Costco gas bar. We have Superstore...

What's a parent to do?

Sep 22, 2015 / 11:00 am

Is eight old enough to be home alone? Any age to me under 13 is too young to be alone. But then, as a single mother of four children, I can honestly say today...

Home alone: my kids did it

Sep 22, 2015 / 11:00 am

My 10-year-old watched his six-year-old brother after school until their dad got home, but he also had taken a babysitting course. We had three immediate...

It depends on the child

Sep 22, 2015 / 10:00 am

How old to be left alone? I would say nine or 10 years old, but I think it also depends on the responsibility of the child. Some children are too wild and...

Home alone: I survived

Sep 22, 2015 / 10:00 am

To have made an arbitrary ruling on the appropriate age of a child that can be left alone, the judge should have based his decision on a number of factors....

How old is old enough?

Sep 22, 2015 / 9:00 am

How young is too young to leave a child home alone? I don't believe there is a answer for this. You have to consider so many factors. What kind of...

Dougall a speedway

Sep 22, 2015 / 9:00 am

Take a drive down Dougall Road south. In the city's current plan re the traffic circle at the north end of Dougall, traffic doesn't even begin to pick...

Teach 'em how to fish

Sep 21, 2015 / 3:23 pm

I'll tell ya what. When there are no more homeless people wandering Canadian streets, when there is no more unemployment and under-employment forcing...

Look after our own first

Sep 21, 2015 / 3:14 pm

Canada has been unfairly treating immigrants from other countries, as shown in recent video. We have friends from Germany who have been on the waiting list for...

A knee-jerk reaction

Sep 21, 2015 / 3:05 pm

Re: Castanet’s survey regarding Canada’s acceptance of Middle East refugees/migrants. Like most Canadians, I sympathize with the plight of the...

No to refugees

Sep 21, 2015 / 3:00 pm

Re: the Syrian refugees. No way to accepting them. Why? just look at what is happening in Sweden, England, etc. They will change our country; they don't...

Stay home on election day

Sep 21, 2015 / 10:42 am

Unquestioning Conservative/Harper voters will not change their thinking. Recent Canadian polls reaffirm this, showing 71 per cent of Conservative voters would...

Help them on their own turf

Sep 20, 2015 / 9:00 am

Would you prefer to help Syrian refugees remain in their own country or help them immigrate to ours? It would make more sense to help keep them over there, so...

Formerly proud Canadian

Sep 20, 2015 / 7:59 am

I used to be proud to be a Canadian. But, now, I am bitter and disillusioned by what the Harper government is doing in the name of Canada. The mistrust created...
