Goat news…..

from Friends of the Lardeau River:

Thanks to all who phoned the MOT re concerns of Mountain goats and traffic on Hwy 31 north of Lardeau. The Ministry listened and hired a Mountain goat specialist. This week a group of volunteers placed a variety mineral salts at select locations high above the road.

Apparently the shift to succulent green vegetation each spring alters the goats’ mineral balance causing them to seek minerals, they are most often seen at this location Apr through July.

Of course there is no guarantee the goats won’t be back on the road, please drive carefully.

Feel free to share.

Questions and Discussion

Swimming Lessons cancelled…

 

LVCC regrets to inform that there will be NO Red Cross swimming lessons at Glayco Beach in Howser this year. Despite extensive efforts by our volunteer board members ( special extra thanks to Sandra Rempel )- we were unable to secure an instructor. If you are interested in becoming a Red Cross certified swim instructor – or need to upgrade or renew – please contact Cari Liverman-Lamoureux Sandra Rempel or Tracy Remple to discuss some options for future seasons.

No more Greyhound….

Subject: An Important Update from Greyhound

See how the changes may impact you

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.
