to the District of Invermere and the RDEK for being two of only a few jurisdictions in BC and Alberta that do NOT have heat pump noise by-laws. Get with the program! People need a good night’s sleep in order to maintain good health.

Keep a leash handy when letting your dog roam

Posted on February 12th, 2016 by


Dear Editor:
Not all dogs play well with others!
I am a fairly new resident to Edgewater and, like many, have a family dog that I love with all my heart and enjoy walking him in this beautiful country. I am not against dogs being off leash. I personally do not allow my dog off leash in the township for a variety of reasons; others seem to feel differently. If you’re going to allow your dog to run or walk off leash in the township, please carry a leash in case …

to the people who don’t have their dogs on a leash. I don’t know you or your dog, so just because you say your dog is friendly does not make it ok. When your dog isn’t on a leash walking, heck, running down the road into my yard, don’t be surprised when you don’t get a sympathetic, friendly, or cute ‘can I pet your dog’ type response from me. It’s not ok. Keep your dogs on a leash people! Some people, and children especially, are afraid of dogs, particularly larger …

Concerned about Canada

Posted on February 12th, 2016 by


Dear Editor:
Canada should be building refineries at the oil sands, instead of pipelines. Why make a product dirtier by pushing millions of tons thousands of miles to a refinery?
Refineries aren’t discussed because foreign corporations aren’t willing to invest into Alberta, just what they can get out of Alberta.
Foreign companies pack a lot of clout in Alberta. StatsCan reports the oil sands are, at the blink of an eye, somehow, 50 per cent foreign controlled.
USA’s Koch brothers lease between one and two million acres of oil sands — …

Youth soccer deadline looming

Posted on February 12th, 2016 by


Dear Editor:
This is a letter to all parents who will be registering their children in either the Rep (competitive) or House (non-competitive) soccer leagues.
The Columbia Valley Youth Soccer Association is run completely by volunteers. These volunteers put in many hours organizing the teams for the start dates. In order to make creating the teams a less time-intensive process, it was decided to have firm deadlines for registration.
The deadline for Rep is Monday, February 15th and for House it is Monday, March 14th. There will be absolutely no registrations …

to people who let their dogs run wild. There are NO DOGS ALLOWED signs posted around all the school properties for a reason! Obey the rules, no dog is an exception, especially not because they are cute. Got to love walking down the sidewalk and playground, and having to maneuver around your dogs defecation because you think it’s ok to let them poop wherever. Clean up after them people! It’s not hard. I don’t poop in your yard, so don’t let your dogs poop in mine, or our children’s.
