We were always cheaper for gas in the Kootenays, then the lower main land was. Lower the prices gas stations. It is 1.06 in Vancouver right now.

Lets be realistic, Canada will shut down. Lets do it now rather then later. Who agrees? Lets do the time so we can start rebuilding.

Can someone wiser then I, please explain how you have to pay for shingle shots (160.00) but we can get something in case we overdose on drugs for free.

I do see the point of jaywalking to save that “minute.” But if you see a vehicle coming towards you. Would you not think it wise to scoot across the street. If the vehicle hits you they will feel a feeling that they endure the rest of their lives. However you could live the rest of your life with chronic pain or worse.  Is is worth it. So be respectful jaywalkers, do not test the car. Have the common sense. Especially in the winter.  I know I will still do it, but I will jaywalk with respect the vehicle is bigger then me.

I am concerned by a Nelson trend in retail business. Before, it was “the customer is always right” which indicated respect and deference in serving the public. But today, (because of region? age group? mindset?) this is not being taught. I can think of 3 times recently when it was the employee that was supported in front of and in spite of the customer’s presence. I am one who values customer service so much, I implore employers to give this a think. I shop more south, customer service is great!
