Use reason, not fear

Feb 5, 2019 / 11:26 am

I read with considerable dismay the recent letter from Garry Rayner. I do agree that it is time for greater engagement of Canada's youth in our electoral...

Disappointed in council

Feb 5, 2019 / 11:22 am

Very disappointed that our recently elected city council’s efforts to create “all-inclusive” neighbourhoods showed apparent little regard for...

Bigger issues to deal with

Feb 4, 2019 / 4:50 pm

After walking at Marshall Fields in Vernon for over 17 years, I guess its "just a matter of time" before I get hit in the head with a soccer ball...

Why so many wildfires?

Feb 3, 2019 / 9:00 am

Why so many damaging, catastrophic wildfires? The long answer is that Canadians and Americans, over the last decades, were fearful of forest fires. Every fire...

Survival of the fittest

Feb 3, 2019 / 9:00 am

A few thoughts on recent headlines... 1. Seriously, Mr. Weaver, do you really think anyone wants a suspected criminal back in their job? You’re not...

Enabling, not helping

Feb 3, 2019 / 9:00 am

I can't believe that Kelowna city council approved the Aggasiz Road supportive housing project. Homeless people do need assistance, but I do not want my...

The cost of recovery

Feb 2, 2019 / 9:00 am

I have to shake my head when I hear about the complaints about not enough recovery houses. There were not-for-profit recovery houses available, but Gordon...

What about our leader?

Feb 2, 2019 / 9:00 am

We are so obsessed with a foreign government and its leader, President Donald Trump, that we are giving our own Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a free pass. Our...

Costco still has 'em talking

Feb 2, 2019 / 9:00 am

As someone who does not believe in having to pay for a membership to shop, I have never been a Costco member and do not shop there, so personally I don't...

Comparison doesn't fly

Feb 1, 2019 / 12:24 pm

It really makes me angry when I hear someone from Interior Health or Journey Home refer to my home in the same sentence as "wet facility." The wet...

Ship LNG, not coal

Feb 1, 2019 / 12:18 pm

Last summer, like many prior, we loaded up the boat and headed to Prince Rupert for a summer fishing vacation. During our visit in 2017, I was fascinated by the...

Life for Saudi women

Feb 1, 2019 / 12:11 pm

Ken Sutherland's ill-informed letter of Jan. 21 tells me he knows little about the life of women in Saudi Arabia. I lived there for nine years. Because of...

Dr Oz went over and above

Feb 1, 2019 / 12:01 pm

We want to express our extreme gratitude and appreciation to Dr. Oz and his amazing staff at the Rose Valley Vet Clinic. He took great care of our...

Losing a loyal customer

Feb 1, 2019 / 11:59 am

I have lived in Lake Country for 27 years, and have shopped at Costco Kelowna at least once a week for 26 years, having raised four children, loading up an...

Another vote for 2 stores

Feb 1, 2019 / 11:53 am

I don’t understand why Costco would not just open another store on the west side of the lake and keep the existing one open in Kelowna. This store is so...

What is city spraying?

Jan 31, 2019 / 11:42 am

What is the city spraying on our roads? I drove to work the other day and later had to drive home to retrieve something. When I left my office, I looked at the...

Canada doing its part

Jan 31, 2019 / 11:36 am

The carbon tax is a scam in letter writer Steve Novak's words, but I cant follow his logic. Even if we are carbon neutral, we in Canada do not live in a...

Two Costcos needed

Jan 31, 2019 / 11:32 am

I am afraid there has not been much thought given to the impact Costco relocating to the Westside will have on traffic congestion. First of all, we have the...

Help, don't ruin Venezuela

Jan 31, 2019 / 11:25 am

I am saddened that Ottawa would join the gang that would overthrow the government of The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. Venezuela has earnestly pursued a...

Didn't listen to the people

Jan 30, 2019 / 3:05 pm

Kelowna's mayor and council should reconsider reconsider their approval of the Agassiz Road project. If the general public had been asked, they would have...
