Editor, We are grateful to be here today and we give thanks to the many people who helped us. We were on the bus that crashed on the connector on Christmas Eve. Thank goodness, we were wearing our seatbelts! We were hanging from our seatbelts for about 30 minutes while the bus was evacuated and care was given to the injured. It was better than flying through the bus and hitting something. People were really good about helping each other, retrieving whatever they could and staying relatively calm. Travellers in cars, stopped to let people from the bus warm up. Blankets got d ..read more

Joanne Layh The Peachland Wellness Centre is launching a new program this month to provide Parkinson’s support to the community. The program, “Shaken but not Stirred,” will be led by Peachland Wellness Centre director Barrie Hewer, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s 12 years ago. “Of course, it’s a devastating diagnosis for anybody and I’ve spent the last 11 or 12 years reading about it and adjusting my life for Parkinson’s as it comes up and the symptoms develop and found that it doesn’t have to be a life changing diagnosis, if you make all kinds of adjustments,” Hewer told the View.  “D ..read more

Dan Albas MP This week began with a significant announcement from the Trudeau Liberal Government that $19 billion will be spent to acquire 88 Lockheed Martin F-35 fighter jets, in a deal that will require a further $70 billion in related maintenance costs over the lifetime of the aircraft.  You may recall that these are the same F-35 that Prime Minister Trudeau made comments ranging from “we will not buy the F-35 stealth fighter bomber” to the “F-35 did not work” and that “It no longer makes sense, if it ever did, to have a stealth, first-strike capacity fifth-generation fighter.” Trudeau ..read more
