Wrong location for centre

Apr 22, 2016 / 2:06 pm

Should the bullies win?

A couple of thoughts

Apr 21, 2016 / 10:58 am

I have a couple of thoughts here. One is about the $8,000,000 for a trail to walk on. Rip out the train tracks and make a path. The money would be better spent...

Why not the Bluff?

Apr 20, 2016 / 3:27 pm

It’s not been mentioned in the dialogue so far, but the Bluff location just up the hill from the bridge would be a fabulous location for the...

I would like to think that BC Hydro make enough money to look after events like this one, which does not happen too often. It would not be safe for an...

No better location?

Apr 20, 2016 / 2:14 pm

Sports fields overwatering

Apr 19, 2016 / 2:07 pm

To our city council: Seeing as water is apparently your top priority this year, why not cut back on the wasteful use of it on the sports fields? Try the...

Save pets up poles?

Apr 19, 2016 / 1:42 pm

As the person who had to create a social media storm in order for BC Hydro to rescue the cat in Princeton, this video enraged me. The cat wasn't up just...

Bike paths

Apr 19, 2016 / 1:32 pm

Why the rush?

Safe cyclist routes

Apr 18, 2016 / 2:45 pm
