KAMLOOPS — The first time I read about the boycott of B.C. wines, the thought that came to mind was that no one will think it a good idea.
KAMLOOPS— The not-guilty verdict in Saskatchewan’s Gerald Stanley trial has sparked a lot of outrage, resulting in rallies in several cities over the weekend in support of the family of Colten Boushie.
KAMLOOPS — Politicians! There are weeks when the only thing you can do is give your head a shake and wonder in bemused befuddlement, if we have indeed entered the Twilight Zone of local politics. Here’s what I mean:
KAMLOOPS — We’ve lost our sense of humour. I recently made a joke about Prince George in an editorial and received a heated rebuke from a reader. I fully expected to get the same for some jokes about Alberta this week.
