Is YouTube police officers' nightmare?
For many years, privacy advocates fretted the appearance of video surveillance tools in the hands of law enforcement in Canada and jurisdictions around the world, fearing such monitoring would be abused.Ironically, it seems the shoe has fit itself on the other foot.

Children should not be taught to kill to appreciate nature
This is a copy of a letter we have recently sent to B.C. ministers Terry Lake, Steve Thomson, and the BCWF’s Bill Bosch: We are dismayed that the province’s Wildlife Act has been amended to make it easier for children to pump bullets into wildlife. Is this government so cash strapped that it must......

Gilchrist: Caution must guide choices
While everyone’s savvy to the Nigerian email scam requesting banking information in exchange for millions going into your account, people continue to be burned by con artists.

Beet juice must be tried
I commend Bill Lipsey for suggesting the City consider an environmentally beneficial alternative to road salt. That beet juice be given a thorough assessment by the City is a must. I read the comment from Coun. Pat Wallace worried about beet juice staining clothing. I wonder if beet juice is more staining than blood on surgical gowns and equipment......

Rezoning process disappointing to see
I learned something today about the public hearing process. Recently a home adjacent to our property was purchased. The new owner decided to seek rezoning so that she could subdivide the property and construct a second home.

Consumers still winners
You can’t blame Canadian consumers for feeling like they’re getting an unfair shake when it comes to buying goods that are more expensive here than south of the border.Everything from books to food and vehicles to electronics take a bigger chunk out of our paycheque than the wallets of our American neighbours. Even with U.S. companies......

Don't accept oppression of women
In response to Robert Koopmans’ column about a recent incident of racism (It’s Easy To Be Racist In Good Ol’ Kamloops, The Daily News, March 23). First of all, Muslim is not a race, it is a religion. And although I believe that we should respect others beliefs, maybe these two women saw this as an affront to women’s rights. ...

Did we even really try?
I am totally ashamed and embarrassed to call myself a Kamloopsian. People here seem to have a NIMBY attitude toward all new development and they are very fast to state that it’s the environment that they care about.Well on Saturday night the city had the opportunity to walk the walk. Instead, you failed miserably. ...

Should iPods be off-limits to the state?
Our digital devices are central to our lives. Our smartphones, lap-tops, iPods and iPads have become, in many respects, electronic representations of who we are.

Kamloops' natural areas worth saving from industrialization
Regarding the We Say editorial Kamloops Shines Bright In The Spring (The Daily News, March 21).

Charbonneau: MDMA drug research offers promise
I didn’t know it back in the 1970s when I was experimenting with psychedelics but others were looking at applications other than an altered state of consciousness.My "experiments" weren’t as meticulous, nefarious, or luxurious as some. Aldous Huxley made meticulous notes on the afternoon he took mescaline, from which he......

Kamloops needs well-paid industrial jobs
There has been a lot of controversy regarding KGHM-Ajax’s decision to invest in Kamloops, and that is healthy. However, having lived in Kamloops for 58 years, I have seen lots of changes regarding industry. Our jewel Riverside Park was once a loud, busy sawmill.

Young hunter plan not well thought out
I am writing because it seems that the B.C. government has not thought through the latest plan to encourage young hunters to get a hunting licence and go out into the great outdoors and hunt. The first problem encountered will be the B.C. hunter number. The hunter number card must be presented when buying a hunting licence. ...
