LETTER: When it comes to TSMV, council should take nuanced view

Editor: This letter is in response to Mr Wilkinson's simplistic arguments in support of the Three Sisters Mountain Village's plans.
LETTER: Impressed with turn out for TSMV discussion

LETTER: Impressed with turn out for TSMV discussion

Editor: On Tuesday, Feb. 23, I had the honour of moderating the largest public meeting ever held in the Bow Valley.

LETTER: Getting real about 'wildlife corridors' in Three Sisters

LETTER: Getting real about 'wildlife corridors' in Three Sisters

Animals don’t need wildlife corridors; what they need is habitat and space.

LETTER: Not satisfied with the way public hearing is being held

Editor: My first comment is that this limited, ill-timed, virtual format event is not sufficient to qualify as a public hearing and should be postponed until a full and open hearing is possible. 

LETTER: If we don't set limits to development, when will it stop?

Editor: Jason Wilkinson uses two popular arguments in his letter suggesting council approve the Three Sisters Mountain Village development plan. First, that Canmore “needs” more jobs.

LETTER: Development in Three Sisters will diminish what we value about Canmore

Editor: No need to make this a long letter. Any further development East of Canmore along the three sisters will end up hurting wildlife and diminishing what makes this valley so special.

LETTER: Canmore is at a turning point

Editor: In every crisis, there is opportunity. Because of the climate crisis, the world has reached a turning point, as has Canmore with the Three Sisters Mountain Village area structure plans. I have been a full-time town resident for 20 years.

LETTER: Earthquake raises concerns about TransAlta dam infrastructure

Editor: As a geotechnical engineer and resident of South Canmore, I read the article about TransAlta’s investigations following the 3.9 earthquake in Banff with great interest (RMO 2021.02.18).

LETTER: Opposed to development on Three Sisters lands

Editor: The citizens of Canmore have been asked to make their comments regarding the area structure plans (ASP) for the Three Sisters Village and Smith Creek put forward by Three Sisters Mountain Village (TSMV).
