Although I was never a Social Credit supporter, I must compliment Duane Crandall’s common sense letter last week. Like the anti Jumbo letter writers, very few contain real world facts.

to whoever smashed into our Volvo behind the Kootenay Motel on May 20th. You broke the tail light, ripped the bumper halfway off, and left like a coward without admitting what you did and arranging for the repairs to be paid for.

Re: “Jumbo Valley is seeing more skiers” Letter to the Editor, May 20th Pioneer
Message to Rowena Eloise, please leave MY town alone. Write letters to YOUR paper. Like the “anti deer removal” leaders who don’t even live here and cost us ridiculous monies for stupid lawsuits, I’m so tired of hearing your views! One person, one vote! Live globally and act locally. Not your town!
Cheers,
John Nairn (45 years here)

Jarred by taxation jeers

“Taxation is theft” read a Cheers & Jeers entry in the May 13th Pioneer.

I am staggered at such a display of ignorance.

Posted on May 20th, 2016 by


Dear Editor:
The Ktunaxa First Nation has petitioned the Supreme Court of Canada for a Judicial Review requesting that no resort development will be in their sacred place, Qat’Muk, by keeping the Jumbo Valley area naturally wild.

The proponents of the resort development have petitioned the B.C. Courts for a Judicial Review claiming B.C. Minister of Environment Mary Polak’s October 4th decision …

A very big CHEERS to the gentleman with the ponytail (I can’t remember his name) working at the Creekside course in Fairmont the other day. He took time away from what he was doing to explain to my 6 and 7 year old about the larger holes in the greens and got the kids very excited about golfing with dad. Oh and also for explaining to the boys after golf the one with the lowest score buys pizza and ice cream. I hope Fairmont realizes what a gem of a …
