Firstly, I commend the paper for printing Jamie Fishers letter criticizing your perceived political bias, although the 200-word-plus Editors Note bespokes thou doesnt protest too much!
I dont really notice a political bias, but that may be as I hold the same views (left wing).
I do, however, see a huge anti-Jumbo bias, as do all my friends who own businesses, create jobs and want Invermere to prosper after the 20 or so recent business closures.
A prime example is the past issue where the ONLY decision in 12 years that could be conceived to be against the proponent was given such HUGE coverage (even a picture of three couples all with pensions celebrating) the decision.
Not much mention of the countless decisions and judgments the proponent has had over the dozen or so years.
A shorter editors note: The photo of the three Jumbo Wild supporters appeared in The Echo, which is currently running a series of columns by BC Liberal regional director Doug Clovechok on the merits of the provincial governments Promises Made, Promises Kept platform. See page A7 for this weeks instalment.
