Dear Minister Garneau:
Recently, Greyhound Canada, a private extra-provincial bus company, announced that they would no longer provide service to most of British Columbia.
Temperatures in the Boundary are expected to continue into Wednesday before cooling a few degrees Environment Canada said.
The 36 C heat has forced Environment Canada to continue a Heat Warning for the Boundary Region, at least into Wednesday.
In 2007, Canada was one of four countries to vote against the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (with New Zealand, the United States and Australia).
A mind in movement across space and time: Part III
Traveller Chaos, Column Coherence
Taking place Aug. 11 and 12, from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., the Columbia Basin Culture Tour allows you to explore artists' studios, museums, art galleries and heritage sites during this free, self-guided event. Travel to studios and archives that aren't normally open, see demonstrations, new exhibitions and collections or meet people behind the scenes.
Government! Government! Government!
Despite your initial reaction, government is not a four letter word. Too often, we criticize it and complain about it as if it were the enemy. Federal and provincial partisan governments get lumped in with local government often leaving a sour taste in people’s mouth.
Seventeen projects that aim to improve the lives of Columbia Basin residents by addressing social issues will soon be making a positive difference with nearly $965,000 in Social Grants from Columbia Basin Trust.
In a media release Monday, the Southeast Fire Centre said in the interest of public safety, the BC Wildfire Service is temporarily closing a portion of the Beaverfoot Forest Service Road near the Whitetail Creek wildfire.
The wildfire is burning just outside Kootenay National Park and about 40 kilometres north of Radium Hot Springs.
On August 18 and 19, the MS Bike – West Kootenay Challenge returns to Lakeside Park to raise funds and hope to find a cure for multiple sclerosis.
Approximately 100 cyclists will take part in this two-day weekend ride that will have them travel between 137 km and 161 km, heading to Crescent Valley on the first day of the tour, and Procter on the second day.
Twenty-one local fire fighters as well as BC Wildfire Service responded to an interface fire at the end of Spance Road, off Casino Road, Sunday afternoon, according to Regional Fire Chief Dan Derby.
Derby said the call came in at 3: 59 p.m. and crews were on scene at 4:17 p.m. the situation was contained by 9:25 p.m.
