Vox Populi

LETTER: Intersection is too confusing and impedes traffic flow

Editor: My wife and I fill-up on gas in Canmore roughly 50 to 100 times per year. On the Canada Day weekend, we went into town to check out a painting at a gallery and grab a bite. I have to say, the design for the new intersections for the main

LETTER: Banff punishing vehicles by lowering speed limits

Editor: After reading an article in the paper, I wanted to send a letter so everyone can read my opinion on what the Town of Banff is proposing for the 30 kilometre-an-hour speed limit bylaw.

LETTER: Thank you to our rescuers, locals for assistance

Editor: I went heavy bush hiking near Gap Lake June 3rd and I ran into a large grizzly that was about 10 to 20 yards away.
