WHAT’S
NEW Greyhound Canada Update

We have made the difficult decision to make substantial changes to our service in Canada effective October 31, 2018.

In Quebec, we are able to continue the routes and services we currently offer today.

We are permanently cancelling all Greyhound Canada services in the provinces of Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

In British Columbia, we are cancelling all services as well. However, Greyhound US and BoltBus will continue to offer 4 daily trips each between Vancouver, BC and Seattle.

In Ontario, the majority of the routes will continue to operate. Here is a list of cities where Ontario services have been canceled.

We will maintain a full schedule through October with the last trips departing from affected stations on October 31, 2018.

For customers who purchased tickets online or via our call center, we are automatically refunding tickets for canceled trips. Customers who purchased their tickets through other channels may call us at 1-877-463-6446 and our customer care team will process a refund. Additional details are available here.

This has been a difficult decision for us, but we’ve seen ridership drop consistently since 2010 and continuing service on the affected routes has become unsustainable.

We sincerely appreciate your business over the years. It’s been a pleasure serving you.

News from the LV Historical Society

Thanks to all who entered the 100 questions Centenary quiz:  The winner  is John Jeffreys.

Raffle tickets can be purchased up until the Meadow Creek Fall Faire for several great prizes; and to support the Historical Society!

 The Museum is open weekends and statutory holidays from mid-June to Mid-September.

The 100-Year birthday celebration was an unqualified success. We had planned for approximately 250 people, and that is about how many turned up. A number of adventurous people attired themselves in “period” costume—fun. Face painting, kids’ games, collectors’ displays, and the in-museum treasure hunt all added to the festive spirit.

Thank you to so many people who volunteered their time and/or equipment. And, course, thank you to the following agencies/people who contributed funds to pay for it all: RDCK Area D, Columbia Basin Trust, Columbia Power Corporation, Boards by George, Hamill Creek Timber Homes, Grizzly Bear Ranch, Meadow Creek Store, and Lardeau Valley Service.

Survey….from the Young Agrarians..

From  the new Columbia Basin Young Agrarians Coordinator who  will be organizing farm related events across the Kootenays:

” I want the events to be meaningful and relevant so I have created a survey to see what type of events farm folk are interested in attending in their area.

The survey is here: https://docs.google.com/…/1FAIpQLSeEiaz-Jq0Sa28IU0…/viewform
Thank you for your great ideas and feedback!”

 

 

 

Come Join us on July 12 – Community Consultation

July 12 at 6pm at the Seniors Hall, Kaslo.

Main Topic:

Community based tenures in the Wildland Urban Interface

Fire has been on our minds since last summer’s catastrophic events, which thankfully spared much of Kaslo and Area D. July will be a good month to discuss the message we received from our government and leading wildfire specialist during the Wildfire and Climate Change Conference in Nelson on June 26 to 28. We will also discuss the direction of the BC Community Forest Association in what role Community Forests can play in fire proofing our community.
Come and meet with us and guest speaker Susan Mulkey from the BCCFA as well as John Cathro, the co-author of the new Kaslo and Area D Community Wildfire Protection Plan.
Community forests offer a proven way forward. Given the successes of BC’s 56 community forests to date, and the ability of the community forest model to achieve multiple, complimentary goals, the BC Community Forest Association (BCCFA) is proposing an expansion of the community forest program, for both new and existing community forests, primarily in the wildland urban interface (WUI).
The KDCFS has been successful in securing a Forest Enhancement Society (FES) grant towards the development of a Landscape Level Wildfire Protection Plan within our license area. We have started to collect input from other stakeholders and hope to complete the Report by the spring/summer of 2019.
You can find out more about LLWPPs from the Slocan Integral Forestry Cooperative (SIFCo) who have done excellent work towards fire proofing communities in the Slocan Valley since 2008 and are one of the main organizers of the Wildfire and Climate Change Conference in Nelson.
