Hospital group's credibility is gone

Dedicated staff and volunteers at Burnaby Hospital have served our community for decades. Unfortunately, over time the hospital has been neglected and is now in desperate physical condition. Conditions for patients are equally desperate.

Fee increase surprises

Dear Editor: It will be three years since the new garbage pickup has been in service on Nov. 23, 2009; this will be roughly 150 weeks, less the official holidays.

Public has come to expect 'toxic' politics

Politics in the B.C. legislature has become toxic. That has been perhaps Christy Clark's most astute observation since becoming premier at her party's behest a year and a half ago.

Taxes of great concern

Dear Editor: The fact that people discuss their ability to pay taxes, property or any other, is a sign of great concern. Taxes are set by the strength of an economy in the free market society.

Sad to see changes

Dear Editor: With regret and sadness, after all these years, Save-On-Foods at Station Square at McKay Avenue, is closing on Dec. 29 owing to extensive construction.

Family Day? Perhaps this should be the theme

The first official B.C. Family Day statutory holiday is on Feb. 11, 2013. Chances are most of us will be putting our feet up watching TV, going shopping, or taking off to the ski slopes for a fun-filled break.

Change at centre is necessary

Dear Editor: George Derby Centre is a community based complex care facility for 300 residents, most of whom are veterans of the Armed Forces.

Carefully consider agendas and intent

Jane Sterk's column (A trojan horse for Canada?, In My Opinion, Burnaby NOW, Nov. 9) casts a critical spotlight on the current proposed investment treaty between Canada and China.

It was a very rough week for Premier Clark

One has to feel for Premier Christy Clark, no matter what one's political affiliations may be. In one week she was faced with a former Liberal MLA, John van Dongen, yet again, demanding an investigation into the 2003 sale of B.C.

Centre decision is cruel

Dear Editor: Re: Families worried about care changes, Burnaby NOW, Nov. 14. I was moved to tears when I saw what you are doing. This is cruel and unacceptable. People are more important than the bottom line.
