Letter: Concerns about radio tower location

I am writing to express my disappointment in the location choice for the radio communication tower on the bench above Marysville. This is an important location, north of Marysville on Jim Ogilvie Way by the Volksmarch Trail. For many residents walking along this trail, they sit on the bench under the big tree while taking in the beauty.

Letter: Thank you Dynamiters

As a volunteer goal judge for the past 23 years, I have watched many teams pass through our community, some better than others. However, this year's team stands out for their incredible commitment,sportsmanship and determination. Supporting this great group of young men were amazing fans and volunteers. It is my pleasure to support such a fantastic community organization. Looking forward to another fabulous season. Go Nitros Go.

LETTER: Canada and BC’s Draft Mountain Caribou Recovery Plan

I cannot accept the Ken Sumanik's ("Caribou", April 10) implied premise that spending taxpayer's money on protecting and re-establishing the mountain caribou numbers in BC and involving the West Moberly and Saulteau First Nations is a waste of money because "(caribou) have never been an important source of meat and hides for (southern) indigenous people". This investment is about much more than just meat and hides. The drastic declines and recent local extirpations of mountain caribou herds are indicators that unsustainable forestry and recreational practises have been in place in this province.
