Ninety-nine per cent of the time, I’m incredibly proud of the Source, including our interactions on social media. We’ve used Facebook and Twitter to disseminate important public information, to reunite lost pets with their people, even to help find a missing child.

Santa Claus is on the hot seat, literally, after receiving some gentle criticism from local fire officials.

Kootenay Boundary Regional Fire Rescue deputy chief Dan Derby said they felt a warning was due, given an incident last year involving a singed beard, soot stains, and a not-fully-extinguished fireplace.

I will only do my best for the whole community if elected to Mayor. I will be there to work for everyone in the City, young and old, I will not be there to be friends, I will be there to try and help the City return to its former self.

I will be looking to bring in new business for employment, to enhance the downtown areas.

I am running for Trail Council because I will offer a fresh perspective to City Hall.  We need to continue the transition of our City of Trail to a new generation of leadership.
