to the people who remove the flyers from the Pioneer and leave them on top of the pile for the next person to deal with. It’s the advertisers who enable the Pioneer to be free to us. If you don’t want to read the flyers, then recycle them. Don’t leave them for the next reader to deal with. Show some consideration for your neighbor.

No more trails in the Benches, please

Posted on December 2nd, 2016 by


Dear Editor:
We grew up on a mixed farm near Kamloops, B.C. and our family always respected the wildlife and the environment. As a child, I learned from my father to look after the wildlife; he would throw hay over the fence where the cattle couldn’t get it for the more than 50 mule deer and a few moose that wintered at our place.
We grew up always supporting clubs that protected wildlife and the environment. Yes, we were and still are hunters, but we respect the laws of hunting and …

Wild reception for film fest

Posted on December 2nd, 2016 by


Dear Editor:
When community comes together, great things happen. Wildsight would like to thank RK Heliski and all the other sponsors, supporters and volunteers for helping to make our 3rd Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival so successful.
It’s our annual fundraiser and Saturday’s event was sold out. We couldn’t be happier. But more than that, the films are meant to instill inspiration and motivation for positive social change, and there was a noticeable buzz in the audience.
We look forward to 2017 when we can make the Festival even bigger …

to all those who ignore the responsibility of removing their dog’s “business”, during their daily walk. This beautiful valley depends on visitors to Invermere and Panorama, and who wants to live or come to a town/resort and be faced with dog droppings all over the place? You are out with your dog knowing full well that they either crap in your house or outside so come prepared and CLEAN UP after your pet. Bags for handling this duty are available at many stores and dispensers in the valley.

to the old Tyme Candy shope, Higher Ground Coffee Shop and Wild Side Pizza in Radium! All of the owners and their employees at these business have gone above and beyond simple kindnesses when it comes to my children who are always stuck at work with Mommy. Whether you give them a job to do or just let them come over for a chat the break is just what they need to not feel so bored.

to the 2 to 3 boys that think it’s funny to ring a senior’s door bell and run. The police and the schools have been contacted and we will find the boys and punish them accordingly. Obviously your parents taught you no respect.
