Reflection

Posted on December 30th, 2016 by


By Dean Midyette
Pioneer Publisher
For me, looking into a mirror is scary at the best of times, but the days that linger between Christmas and New Years call for us to gaze not at ourselves, but over our shoulders and reflect on the year that is quickly drawing to a close.
As I was driving into work this week, the radio seemed filled with comments from those who can’t wait for 2016 to end. If we allow ourselves to dwell on international stories, like the ongoing slaughter of innocents in Syria or …

to customers who travel through this valley and who bullied staff into selling goods far below the asking price with sad story that is no worse or better than anyone’s else’s tough times in the last year. If you want to buy higher end goods I imagine your necessities of life are well provided for.

Peeved with polarizing politics

Posted on December 30th, 2016 by


Dear Editor:
B.C. is a diverse province and rarely is a one-size-fits-all approach to social or environmental issues fair or wanted. For instance, recently the NDP announced they would, if elected, shut down the grizzly bear hunt. This activist agenda was put into action by NDP politicos to polarize individuals and to garner an emotional vote response. It is also the front end of an activist-driven anti-hunting campaign to shut down hunting province-wide, with trapping to follow.
Some folks are against hunting period; others are against trophy hunting. Yet others …

Big Cheers to all the caring folks who call ICAN about animals out in the cold! The most recent cat we were called about by Canadian Tire had a broken hip and was very emaciated, so we are so happy that someone took the time to report him. That being said, we are running out of space at the shelter so if anyone is wanting to add a feline furry companion to your household, please give us a call!
