Cops deserve weed, too

Oct 17, 2018 / 10:34 am

People who have never used weed are so hypocritical. They might not be wife or child beaters, or hateful, angry people, if they did. Their blood pressure would...

A big no on prop rep

Oct 16, 2018 / 10:54 am

The upcoming referendum on electoral reform has been postured to make it as confusing as possible. It is not a yes or no vote, and has been designed this way...

Democracy will fail and turn into an aristocracy or even a corporatocracy if the majority of voters do not show up to vote during elections. Peachland has the...
