to all the hardworking volunteers that installed a new floor in the Legion Veteran’s Hall on the weekend. It would not have been possible without funding from the Columbia Basin Trust.

to all those who attended and donated to the Invermere GoGo Sisters’ annual St Patrick’s Tea on March 18th. We are always appreciative of your support. The money raised will directly support African grandmothers who are raising large families of children orphaned by AIDS.

Errant trailbuilder versus Parks Canada

Posted on March 24th, 2017 by


Dear Editor:
It was with interest that I read the article regarding David Pacey’s legal problems associated with his trailbuilding efforts. It was unfortunate that the article was not complete and I hope to see the full article in the next edition (Editor’s note: See adjacent “Correction” ).
Regardless, why is Parks Canada wasting so much time and money on something so trivial? You would think Parks Canada couldn’t afford to waste money after all the free passes they are handing out this year. I wonder how many trails could have …

to John and Kerry Nason and the Balance Bobcat crew for plowing our driveway while we were in Mexico for an extended period, so that our house sitter could make it up our driveway. Without being asked it was nice to come home with relief to see our driveway plowed. You guys rock and are pretty good neighbours too!

to inconsiderate people who donate CDs or video cassettes that do not work to the Thrift Shop. It’s not fair to the people who buy them.

to the folks who provided food for the elk and deer. It’s nice to see an act of basic human kindness. It’s too bad it was met with such criticism from the “anti-everything” crowd, but what else is new?

to our Columbia Valley Revelstoke Liberal Candidate Doug Clovechok for seeing a problem, identified by local conservation supporters, AND for participating in a “solution to help” support our local wildlife. As a supporter of his, I applaud his doing so, notwithstanding some people who always want to take the opportunity to put a negative political spin on simple good deeds. As an ongoing contributor to Doug’s activities, including the current campaign, my wife and I had asked that some of our funds be so directed.

Watkins house at Brisco

Posted on March 24th, 2017 by


Dear Editor:
(Re: Historical Lens photo in the March 10th Pioneer) I appreciate the photo of my grandparents’ house in your last issue. However, your date of the photo is a bit out.
My mother, Annie Watkins, was born on February 14th, 1902. In this photo, she is probably six or seven years old. This would mean that this photograph was probably taken around 1908 or 1909 (Editor’s note: details about this photo provided to The Pioneer by the Windermere Valley Museum indicate it was taken in the 1920s). …

Natural gas not cheap

Dear Editor:
It is probably a good thing that when politicians are thrown out of office they go quietly into the sunset and enjoy their retirement. To a large extent, the three living former MLAs — Jim Doyle, Wendy McMahon and myself — do a fairly good job of that. But it doesn’t mean that we don’t still have many thoughts about current issues.
I am prompted to write today because of subjects raised in the last three issues of The Pioneer. The most recent was a Letter to the Editor …
