  1. Thanks for sharing the link, John. More to come I’m sure.

    Chris,
    Your on-line newspaper does a great job. So much so, that if I’m reading this month’s municipal newsletter right, the mayor on behalf of our municipality is considering advertising with you. That would be a good decision in my opinion.

    Thanks for covering this for all of us.

  3. I guess I’d better read that newsletter. Thanks for the tip, and you’re welcome for the coverage. The only thing stopping us from covering CNP the way we do Pincher Creek is the revenue to cover a reporter or two.

    CTV News coverage of this on the 5:00 p.m. news was deplorable. More interested in covering drivers reactions to the traffic tie up and delays than the issues surrounding Bill C-45. Disgusting!

    CTV once again does a good job being a corporate hack and stooge of government than in being an advocate for injustices in our society.

    Pincher Voice,
    You and John had better go for coffee and make a deal. I see a perfect match here. By increasing production he will turn out to be a free assistant. You and John together in six months those other two papers will be off the map.

    Thank you for posting the info on Idle no more. I give the natives of all lands a lot of credit for the way they organized a world protest to protect their lands. We have a lot to learn from these people. Rachel

    Rachel,
    If we don’t blow ourselves up first and/or or despoil the land, water and air, because of corporatocracy’s GREED they will be our salvation in the end. For keeping their culture and ways, in spite of great suffering, they will lead us back to the understanding that “Mother Earth and I are one”.

    I too give them credit for organizing and standing up against Bill C-45 but Canadians other than Natives have to understand that this Bill impacts them too, and therefore it is their fight also.

    The HarperCONS primary concern is “profit before people” being the tool for corporatocacy as they are. They know nothing about protecting our lands for the future (our children), that we are its guardians only as native people know only so well, and as such, have a sacred duty in this regard.
