The lore of crystals

Oxygen Art Centre presents an artist

talk with Brian Lye on Saturday, March

13, at noon. Everyone is welcome and

admission is free.

The artist talk will share information

about Lye’s residency and current exhibition,

Above Above Below Below, as

well as his artistic practice. This online

event will also feature discussion on

the topic of Lye’s exhibition, crystals.

Lye conducted research for an experimental

documentary on crystalline

minerals across scientific, mining, and

healing fields, which this exhibition

and new series of films are derived. Utilizing

discussion-based research, Lye

investigated human and natural relations

to crystals. Interviewing experts

on crystals from the region forms the

foundational material for Lye’s experiments

in 16mm analogue film.

Fascinated by the semiprecious

stones and their capacity for transmission,

amplification, and new age

applications, Lye draws upon his background

in filmmaking and installation

to create an immersive body of work.

Lye is a filmmaker, artist, and educator

who lives and works in Nelson,

BC. His practice is focused in analogue

film production, merging the everyday

with formal experimentations in play,

special effects, and psychogeography.

To attend RSV.. by emailing info@

oxygenartcentre.org. Above Above

Below Below is currently on view at

Oxygen Art Centre until Saturday,

March 20, 2021, Thursdays and Fridays

15 pm and Saturdays 1 7 pm,

by appointment only. To make an

appointment visit Oxygen’s website

Whitewater now investing in summer

The Regional District of Central Kootenay

(RDCK) will receive a funding grant under

the BC Government’s Community Economic

Recovery Infrastructure Program (CERIP) destination

development stream worth one million

dollars.

Whitewater Ski Resort will use the funds for

the development of the first phase of creating a

new summer operations/tourism and hospitality

business centered on mountain

biking, hiking, and

climbing. The plan includes

the development of a Backcountry

Adventure Lodge,

a recreational vehicle and

tent camping area, as well

as programs supporting

backcountry education and

accessibility.

Located 20 minutes outside

of Nelson, BC in the

Selkirk Mountains, Whitewater

Ski Resort was originally

developed in 1969 and

is known throughout the

province for its unbelievable

deep, light powder and

its amazing food creations.

“Whitewater Ski Resort

is one of the cornerstones

of winter recreation in the

Regional District of Central

Kootenay and now a summer

option will enhance

our offerings,” said Ramona

Faust, RDCK Electoral

Area E Director. “For a

community bursting with

outdoor enthusiasts, we are

fortunate to see significant

development of recreational

opportunities throughout

the corridor, whether it be

through non-profit or private

organizations.”

The RDCK applied for the

grant in partnership with

the Whitewater Ski Resort.

The RDCK will administer

the funding, while Whitewater

will be responsible for

delivering the project.

“We really want to thank

the provincial government

and the Regional District of

Central Kootenay for their

support,” said Kirk Jensen,

general manager of Whitewater

Ski Resort. “This has

been a year full of challenges

and we are excited to

receive these funds to assist

in expanding our outdoor

recreational offerings. We

truly believe the changes

made with these funds and the significant

investment made by Whitewater will be

welcome additions to the area. The Backcountry

Adventure Lodge and associated

campground will not only support our

community by expanding the outdoor recreational

offerings, but also help boost the

economy by driving tourism.”

2020 has been quite a year, despite the pandemic.

The Coldest Night of the Year virtual

event went forward successfully, continuing

to maintain its dedication to raising funds for

homeless and vulnerable persons all across

Canada. By February,

2021 Castlegar’s Coldest

Night of the Year had

raised up to $14,755.00

of our $20,000.00 goal.

We still have a month to

reach that goal.

The Coldest Night

of the Year website

cnoy.org/castlegar will

remain open for the

month of March to

receive donations virtually.

People can still

donate, sign up to walk,

or companies can sign

up to sponsor.

Funds raised will go

to the Homelessness

Partnering Project,

Homelessness Shelter

at the Flamingo Motel

and Youth Action Network

Programs run

out of Castlegar and

When called to action, Castlegar,

you responded.

District Community

Services. Because we

are raising money for

charity, all donations

over $20.00 are tax

deductible.

By the end of February,

14 teams and 60

walkers and 190 people had donated or supported

this event and 4 companies had sponsored

this cause and we thank them all.

Castlegar Communtiy Services,

Youth Action Network and Homelessness

Partnering Strategy programs

wish to thank Mercer Celgar,

our lead sponsor for all of Castlegar’s

Coldest Night events, for returning

again, along with our supporting

sponsors Teck Trail Operations,

Kootenay Savings Credit Union and

the Pennywise Community Shopper.

Thank you so much for supporting

this need in the community. We also

want to thank James Kim at the Castlegar

Return-It Depo for offering a

bin to Coldest Night every February.

If you are a business that would like

to contribute, we are still accepting

donations until the end of March.

Visit CNOY.org/castlegar to donate.

And to our top three walkers so far,

Rhylan Streloff from TEAM COMPAS-

SION, Marissa Carrasco from the Selkirk

Walkers, and Leeza Perehudoff,

we thank you for your outstanding

fundraising efforts ~ CDCSS

For the walkers who have not yet picked

up their toques, we will be handing them

out again at the Flamingo Motel, Thursday

March 18th, from 4 to 6 pm and Saturday

March 20th from 11 to 2 pm. We will

have certificates made

up for our top

three walkers

and encourage

representatives

from

our sponsoring

companies to

drop in and pick

up some extra

toques for some

of their employees

as well.

The challenge is

on! Coldest Night

survived despite

the pandemic,

Castlegar has

now established

a Homelessness

Shelter, and we

need a little more

help reaching our

goal.

Will you help

us reach our goal?

Walk, donate, sign

up today to sponsor.

One dollar at a

time, one person at

a time, because you

can. Because you

care!

Op-ed on BC

forestry

By Eddie Petryshen, Wildsight Conservation

Specialist

The numbers are staggering; 500

square kilometres of old growth forests

are logged every year in BC. Many of

these forests in places like the Coastal

or Inland Temperate Rainforests are

irreplaceable because they have taken

hundreds, if not thousands of years to

develop.

Job numbers are equally staggering;

47,000 forestry jobs were lost between

2000 and 2019 in BC. BC’s forest service

lost a quarter of its workforce after

allowing the industry to police itself

under the Forest and Range Practices

Act and the professional reliance model.

Today, less than 3 percent of productive

old growth forests exist. And

most of those old forests are slated to be

logged in the near future.

BC’s forests are managed for fibre to

fuel the ever expanding timber industry.

Even when provincial legislation calls

for protection of key wildlife habitat,

these protections move forward only if

they “do not unduly impact timber supply”

(Forest and Range Practices Act).

Nearly half of BC’s Crown lands are

managed only for low biodiversity values

and managed almost exclusively for

timber production. Biodiversity is simply

the variety of life on earth; it’s what

makes our province so special. Many

areas that the province considers to be

of little value for biodiversity are crucial

for old growth, for wildlife, for water,

and for local communities. The risk

Commercial, Industrial and Residential

Garage Door Sales, Service, Repair & Installation

bobsdoorserviceinc.com

bobsdoorservicerh@gmail.com

236-972-BOBS (2627)

of managing for low biodiversity was

acknowledged in the original Ministry

of Forests Biodiversity Guidebook: “…

the pattern of natural biodiversity will

be significantly altered, and the risk of

some native species being unable to survive

in the area will be relatively high.”

The current degraded and fragmented

state of many of our most endangered

ecosystems like the Coastal Douglas

Fir and Inland Temperate Rainforest

highlights the accuracy of this prediction.

Across the province we are experiencing

wide-scale declines in sensitive

species like caribou, fisher, salmon, bull

trout, and mule deer.

Today, while forest liquidation and

corporate profits have continued, BC

forest companies have invested record

breaking profits in new mills in Sweden

and the southern US. BC residents face

a legacy of severely impacted watersheds,

a province that has been carved

up with 750,000 kilometres of resource

roads, and large scale declines in sensitive

species.

A new future?

The harvesting of irreplaceable old

growth forests must end immediately.

In the face of a rapidly changing climate

and a biodiversity crisis, BC must focus

on building a forest industry that is ecologically

and socially responsible.

A brighter future for BC’s forest sector

is exemplified by small operators.

They cut less and make more. The

Harrop-Procter Community Forest

just east of Nelson, BC, delivers about

twice the amount of jobs/1000 m3 of

timber harvested with their logging

operations compared to the industry

average, and their sawmill produces 10

aftermarket parts

times more jobs than the industry average.

Harrop Procter has also reserved

70 percent of their community forest

landbase from harvesting to protect

old growth forests, water, wildlife

habitat, and community values. This

precautionary approach to forest management

prioritizes the health of water,

wildlife, and the local community while

also ensuring that local employment is

sustained.

The future of BC’s forest sector will

be shaped by the communities, Nations,

and landscapes that make our home

province so incredible. But it remains

to be seen whether the provincial NDP

government will have the political courage

and leadership to shape a brighter

future for old growth, for communities,

and for jobs. Nearly 6 months since

John Horgan committed to full implementation

of a recent government-led

report on BC’s old growth forests that

called for a paradigm shift in forest

management and we have seen no substantive

action. It’s time to move beyond

the old dogma where the government

only values our globally important forests

for their timber. It’s time for leadership.

After decades of unsustainable cut

levels, old growth forest liquidation and

corporate control of BC’s forest industry,

communities and nature deserve

action and they deserve a fighting

chance.

Spring Break

is going to be

fantastical!

Join us at the Rossland Museum

for two full weeks of fun, artistic,

and interactive day camps:

Week #1 March 22-26: A Quest

to Camelot

Princesses, kings, jesters, knights,

dragons, ogres, and unicorns - oh

my! The museum will be transported

to the Middle ages where

fantasy and reality meet. A day at

the museum will yield dramatic

play, studying folklore and Middle

Age-engineering where Merlin will

visit with magic and more!

Week #2 - March 29-April 1: Masters

of the Renaissance

The Renaissance - where creativity,

knowledge, and innovation blossomed.

We welcome our camp-goers

Bent On Art

goes virtual

Sorely missed in 2020, Bent

On Art: Kootenay Queer &

Trans Art Festival returns for

2021 in an online format. Join

us virtually for a series of events

designed to promote the work of

LGBTQ+ artists in the Kootenays

(and across British Columbia)

while creating educational

opportunities, fostering community

connection and promoting

resilience through the

arts. The festival was founded

by Samonte Cruz in 2018 and

is now delivered in partnership

with Samonte Cruz Studios and

the West Kootenay Regional Arts

Council.

This year’s theme focuses on

Queer & Trans Resilience and

over the month of March we

will be engaging local artists in a

daily art challenge, culminating

in an online exhibition and Q&A

session on March 28. We will

also be offering a Queer & Trans

Life Drawing Workshop, as facilitated

by Nadia Moss. Our virtual

festivities will also include a

string of streamed performances

on March 27 from some of our

favourite BC-based performers,

finishing with a “Meet & Greet”

Q&A session.

Hub will scale-up food processing

Fields Forward Society is excited

to announce a new Regional Food

Hub in the Creston Valley. Farmers

and food processors from across the

Columbia Basin will have access to

the food processing facility, beginning

August 2021 when Phase One

will be complete. A full launch will

take place in the winter of 2022.

“Producers and processors in

the valley and Columbia Basin are

ready for a dedicated facility to

accelerate innovation and aggregate

our food products to the scale

required to reach new markets,”

said Danny Turner Fields Forward

Chair and owner of Just-A-Mere

Organic farms.

As part of StrongerBC: BC’s Economic

Recovery Plan, the Ministry

of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries

is providing a $750,000 grant over

three years to Fields Forward as the

lead community group on the food

hub. The facility will be one of seven

new Food Hubs in the province.

“Our food and agricultural community

have so much potential, and

this Food Hub will help everyone

who wants to grow their business

and will contribute to food security

If it is posted by March 29 it

directory.

in the Creston Valley,” said Tanya

Wall Fields Forward Vice-Chair

and RDCK Area B Director. The

funding will be used to renovate a

facility, purchase equipment and

cover staff positions for two years.

The Food Hub will produce juices

from fruits and vegetables, package

vegetables for institutions, bottle

jams, freeze-dry products into

powders, and provide other food

processing services.

The purpose of the Food Hub is to

help Kootenay region food and farm

businesses to grow and innovate by

giving them access to community-based

processing equipment and

facilities they might otherwise not

afford. It will also offer an aggregation

and distribution service, and

sales support. Cold, dry and freezer

storage is planned. Businesses will

rent the equipment or hire Fields

Forward’s staff on a fee-for-service

basis. Fields Forward will participate

in the BC Food Hub Network

connecting and learning from 12

food hubs throughout the province.

Fields Forward Society is a food

and agriculture initiative in Creston

and District with a mandate

to support and sustain

the community’s

environmental,

indigenous, social,

cultural, economic,

and aesthetic values.

In addition to

the new Food Hub,

it owns a community

fruit-juicing

machine used by the

region’s orchardists.

Kaslo Jazz Etc

2021 cancelled

It is with great sadness that we

must announce the cancellation of

the 29th Annual Kaslo Jazz Etc Festival

to be held the summer of 2021.

This isn’t a decision our team

wanted to make and we wish we

could bring you all more positive

news, but in light of COVID-19 we

do believe this is in the best interest

of our organization and broad community

to make the decision now

and focus our sights on 2022.

We appreciate all of you for supporting

the festival throughout

these past 28 years, and we plan

to continue navigating this uncertainty

so we can bring music, art,

community and magic back to

Kaslo as soon as we are able!

Please keep an eye on our social

media platforms for various events

and updates through out the year!

If you purchased a ticket for the

2021 festival, you will be receiving

a message through our ticketing

company regarding your order next

week. Please read and follow the

instructions!

Through these challenging times

- please continue to support the

arts, culture and tourism however

you can! It is incredibly important

to keep our industry alive and

able to return. We will continue to

reimagine ways to bring beauty and

art to your lives, but many artists

and venues are struggling and we

ask that you please buy merch and

donate to the arts and culture in

your area.

It is so greatly important.

Thanks for your support!

Dear Editor:

I’m sure your readers have noticed how out of whack wildlife populations are

today. Increasingly, there are more predators than anything else. Ranchers in the

Creston Flats report seeing as many as 20 grizzlies in their fields at one time.

Other farmers report a dozen grizzlies on one small area. Some bears saw no

need to hibernate this winter because food was available. If the government’s

decision to end the GB hunt was to multiply these predators, the strategy has

worked! Every year for 20 years, they’ve told us there are 15,000 GB’s in BC.

This is of course, nonsense. And as spring approaches, we

know the huge number of grizzly & black bears, wolves,

coyotes and cougars will feast on our elk, big horn sheep,

moose and deer. Dr. Vince Crighton, one of the world’s most

respected moose biologists, has a trail cam video showing

two coyotes dragging 19 mule deer fawns to the den in just

29 days. Dr. Charles Kay, another senior wildlife biologist,

tells of one grizzly bear killing 44 moose calves in a month.

Government does not appreciate the impact of predators on

young wildlife.

It is politically incorrect to say out loud there are too many

predators. Some urban-based groups are calling for the end

of wolf culls, the black bear hunt and for the protection

of predators generally. These people are either ignorant or

willfully blind. We’ve lost our woodland caribou. We’re going

to lose our moose, elk, deer and sheep, unless the politicians

wake up to the reality us locals know all too well. It isn’t

roads that reduce wildlife populations and it isn’t hunters or

trappers. It is an imbalance of too many predators. We need

access to hunt and trap these predators. We need wildlife

management policy that stops the current direction towards

predator pits. For goodness sakes, do not create more AMA’s,

VAC’s and WMA’s. The issue is not people and roads. The

issue is predators. This has been proven in NE BC with wolf

culls improving caribou populations and wolf reduction in

Muskwa Kechika saving mountain sheep and moose. It can

easily be proven here in the Kootenays, if politicians listen to

people on the ground to do what is right, rather than what is

politically correct. Please call the Honourable Katrine Conroy

in Castlegar and ask her to help. She is Minister of FLNRO.

She is a rural person and we need Minister Conroy to carry this forward.

in the Columbia Basin Culture

Tour (CBCT), a celebration of culture

taking place August 7 & 8, 2021, from

10 am to 5 pm. Help us make the 13th

anniversary tour the best yet!

The CBCT is a self-guided tour showcasing

local arts, culture and heritage

offered at no charge to the general

public. “Arts” includes visual, written,

Call for entry: artists/heritage venues

performing, media and inter-arts! Participating

as a venue allows you to really

connect with locals, develop a wider

audience, educate the public about what

you do, sell your art, and attract visitors

to your community.

The CBCT lets visitors visit artists’

studios that may not regularly be open

to the public, purchase work directly

from artists, and visit galleries, museums

and cultural centres to view special

displays, archives, demonstrations

or performances. It is also a chance for

them to meet the people behind the

scenes that are such a vital part of our

local culture.

Full colour tour directories will be

available free of charge to the public as

a guide to visit your location. Signage,

posters and postcards are provided to

promote your participation. Display ads

and media coverage widely promote the

event, and your web page profile will

remain for the rest of the year to list

your contact info and business hours

outside of the event.

Final registration deadline is April

15, 2021. Participating individuals and

venues must be located in the Canadian

Columbia Basin, the southeast corner

of British Columbia roughly bordered

by the communities of Valemount,

Golden, Elkford, Creston, Rossland,

Arrow Lakes and Revelstoke. Although

not in the Basin, the communities of

Grand Forks and Christina Lake are

again invited to participate this year.

February RDCK highlights

RDCK Emergency Management

Bylaw Amended

The Board amended the

RDCK Emergency Management

Bylaw to keep

current with the Provincial

approach to emergency

management. The amended

bylaw includes the addition

of mitigation as a critical

pillar of the emergency program

to reduce risk during

flooding and wildfire season

and changing the definition

of Emergency to include

priorities beyond life and

property, such as significant

indigenous cultural sites.

These changes will help support

actions aimed at adapting

to climate change.

Nelson Cycling Club to

Receive $20,000 for Infrastructure

Updates

The Board approved a

one time grant contribution

to the Nelson Cycling Club

in the amount of $20,000.

The funds will be used to

improve the outdoor infrastructure,

including the

ongoing maintenance

and

management of

local trails within

the area, with

an emphasis on

Morning Mountain

Regional

Park.

Castlegar &

District Community

Complex

Child Care Centre

Project

The Board

approved the

Castlegar & District

Community

Complex

Child Care Centre

Project team

to undertake the

procurement,

negotiation and

awarding of the

construction contract

for the building

of the new

child care centre.

Announced at the

end of January, the

child care facility

will be built on

the grounds of the

Castlegar & District Community

Complex and will

provide 30 new child care

spaces for local families. The

centre is expected to open in

September 2021.

Kootenay Lake Local

Conservation to Fund 2021

Projects

The Board approved the

release of $71,000 in grant

funds from the Kootenay

Lake Local Conservation

Fund to be spread among

eight different projects. To

be eligible for funding, all

projects have to address one

of the International Union

for Conservation of Nature

threats to biodiversity. The

projects include the Harrop

Wetland Restoration Project,

Land securement for

conservation purposes at

Cottonwood Lake, Habitat

restoration for beavers along

the Duncan Lardeau River

flood plains, and the North

Kootenay Lake Water Monitoring

Project.

can fi gure out the order in which the numbers

will appear by using the numeric clues already

Thank you Pennywise!


Some of us have read bad news answers to this question!

But, thanks to RecycleBC, when we cooperate by getting our

acceptable recyclables to collection points, 94% is getting to

their end markets! Our significant part is ensuring we take

care that nothing goes in garbage and landfills, by being

informed what we can put either in blue containers for Village

of Kaslo curbside pickup, or collect carefully to take to

the RECYCLE BC transfer station. Materials collected then

go to the GFL(Green for Life: “waste to energy”) site in Trail,

for a pre-sort and pre-scans; then such scanned materials are

transported to Vancouver, to be sorted for different facilities.

Similar materials are baled together, then sold to end markets

to be made into new packaging or products.

These primary end markets for the majority of materials,

ensured by RecycleBC are as follows: plastic (BC); paper

(U.S.Pacific NW); metal (BC, Ontario, U.S.); glass (BC). .

Lower Columbia River Fish Habitat

Recontouring Project

K O O T E N A Y S

Greg Gritchin • 250-365-9791 • KootenayConnection@gmail.com • KootenayConnection.ca

As part of the Columbia River Water Use Plan, BC Hydro has been working to support indigenous fish

populations in the Lower Columbia River. This month, we will be recontouring the stranding pools at

the Genelle Main Bar, which will result in reduced fish stranding at this site. Work will commence on

Monday, March 15 and will be completed by Monday, March 22, pending suitable water levels.

An Environmental Management Plan has been developed for this work, and an Environmental Monitor

will be on site during the work and will monitor water quality and erosion sediment control for the

project.

Safety is BC Hydro’s top priority and we are working with our contractors to continually plan work in

ways that will protect the health and safety of both our workers and the public. We are committed to

continue to meet and exceed all BC public health and occupational health and safety requirements and

recommendations for employers and workplaces to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Measures are in place to make sure workers can maintain physical distancing guidelines and stay two

metres away from other workers and the public throughout the project.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mary Anne Coules at 250 365 4565 or by email

at maryanne.coules@bchydro.com.

Get your hair done!

Solving the riddle of building human connection in the

midst of a pandemic, students in the Selkirk College Hairstylist

Program are offering an in-person salon experience at Nelson’s

Silver King Campus while adhering to post-secondary health

and safety protocols.

A cornerstone program offering at the Nelson campus since

the mid-1960s, decades of learners have honed their skills in

the student-run salon that is open to the public. One of the

Selkirk College programs offered in-person since September,

students have been immersed in classroom learning and have

now opened the doors to a full range of salon services.

technical aspects we have learned so far,” says Amy Blomme,

one of 12 students in this year’s cohort. “What we can’t learn

in the classroom is communication with the client, so having

people come into the salon is an exciting part of our education.”

Blomme entered the nine-month Hairstylist Program as a

high school student through the Youth Train in Trades (YTT)

stream. Designed to help secondary students get a head start on

careers in the trades while earning credit towards high school

graduation, Blomme began preparing to enter the program in

Grade 10. This spring, the 17-year-old will graduate from Selkirk

College before she graduates from L.V. Rogers Secondary.

“I love this program so much,” she says. “When the whole

COVID thing started, it was very difficult for me as a high

school student to participate in the online learning. Coming

into this program was so amazing. Being part of an education

where the goal is to make people feel better about themselves,

that just feels good.”

Instructor Kat Zaworonok is an industry veteran and Class of

1998 Hairstylist Program alumnae who is in her first year of fulltime

teaching on the Silver King Campus. When the provincial

government instituted its first round of pandemic restrictions

last March, Zaworonok was part of the team at Waves on the

Lake Hair Design in Nelson’s Prestige Lakeside Resort.

In a sector impacted significantly by the initial pandemic

shock and subsequent pivot, Zaworonok is perfectly positioned

to help guide students through both the challenges and opportunities

of current times.

Adhering to proven Selkirk College health and safety protocols,

the Silver King Campus Hair Salon is open for appointments

on Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday between 9:30 a.m. and

3 p.m. With a full range of services available from cuts to perms

to colours, clients are immersed in a learning environment

packed with enthusiasm and careful consideration to detail.

Guided every step of the way by Zaworonok, the extra time

it takes sitting in the chair is rewarded by the appreciation students

have for the in-person client experience. During a time

lacking human interaction, it’s an opportunity to bring people

together.

Salon call 250.354.3243. Find out more information about

On January 18, Canada Post Corporation (CPC) announced

that 2020 was a record year for parcel delivery. Obviously, public

health measures had something to do with it. But parcel

delivery at CPC has been growing exponentially for the past

five years, and it shows no sign of slowing down.

With this kind of growth, a corporation like Canada Post

must roll up its sleeves and review its values, its commitment,

and the service portfolio it offers to the population, including

businesses. Canada Post already has the infrastructure and

the network it needs to be an integral part of the post-COVID

recovery and to become a leader in sustainable development.

In doing so, it would create jobs across the country and be part

of the government’s environmental plan, while also respecting

What if Canada Post was part of the post-COVID recovery?

its mandate to be financially self-sustaining.

To achieve this, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers

(CUPW) has launched a bold campaign called “Delivering

Community Power.”

Whether in the city or in the country, in remote areas or in

the suburbs, post offices are everywhere throughout Canada.

CPC has more than 6,400 outlets, the largest retail network in

the country.

CUPW proposes to accelerate the electrification of Canada

Post’s vehicle fleet. CPC operates more than 20,000 vehicles,

generating 65 kilotons of CO2 every year. The acquisition of

electric vehicles would benefit the environment, stimulate the

automotive sector and create decent jobs.

Now, imagine if Canada Post installed charging stations at

its facilities and made them available to all, creating the largest

network of charging stations in Canada. Imagine you are

driving on the highway or an isolated road, but the battery of

your electric car is running low. No more worries, because you

know you will find a charging station at the post office in the

next village.

COVID has brought to light the problem of high-speed

Internet access in hundreds of communities. With its extensive

presence in those communities, Canada Post could play a central

role perfectly in line with the government’s commitment

to bring high-speed Internet access to all communities. This

also fits with Canada Post’s mission, because it supports online

shopping, and online shopping fuels parcel delivery.

In 62 countries, the post office also provides banking services.

Canada’s extensive postal network could also provide

crucial banking services, especially in remote, rural and Indigenous

communities, which have been abandoned by major

banks. Did you know that there are only 66 bank branches in

all 700 First Nation communities? A postal bank would have

the power to reinvest in communities through infrastructure

or social housing, for instance. In addition, a more inclusive

postal bank would reduce the dependence of thousands of

workers on payday lenders and their usurious interest rates.

Finally, imagine letter carriers knocking at the door of someone

who lives alone. They could offer this check-in service at

the request of a family member who could receive a notification

saying that everything is fine, or that help has been called

in the case of an emergency. The postal service in France and

Japan already offers this service.

My 56,000 brothers and sister from CUPW will not accept

that Canada Post is sitting idly, refusing to change its old values

and habits. I urge you to contact your Member of Parliament

to demand a strong postal service for the future. It’s up to you!

RDCK Commits to Fund Rural Organics Collection

Program

The Board commits to contributing to the implementation

of curbside organics collection programs in portions of the

RDCK to support organics diversion. This summer the RDCK

will be constructing compost facilities in Creston and Salmo

to process organics from residential and commercial sources.

The RDCK will be partially funding start up costs such as

containers and education for municipal curbside organics

collection programs expected to start in Creston in 2021 and

Castlegar and Nelson in 2022.

This spring the RDCK will be consulting with residents
