    Rural health care is a pressing challenge for many small, often isolated, communities in rural BC.  physicians Fenn Smit and Dan O’Connell share their thoughts on practicing medicine in the small West Kootenay village of Kaslo, on a sunny Spring morning in front of the S.S. Moyie .     Watch Video

    The challenges facing small communities struggling to provide an acceptable standard of care for their citizens are legion, ranging from long distances to major care centres to dangerous roads. Often the most difficult hurdle is persuading physicians to consider practicing in small towns.

    The Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Committee (PROSC) are encouraging YOU, the community of Kaslo, to participate in the Village of Kaslo Waterfront and Parks Strategy Project. 
    What is the Waterfront and Parks Strategy Project?  
    Parks, open space and recreation have been identified as valuable resources for residents and visitors alike.  Striving to manage these areas to their full potential, the Village has recognised the need for an environmental management plan, a beach grooming plan, an invasive species control program, and the creation of standard maintenance guidelines for Village staff and volunteers.  In addition, much of this work will support and provide recommendations for a future Parks Master Plan for the community.
    How will the Project be carried out?   
    The Project Management Team will study and evaluate all regulatory, social and environmental aspects of the waterfront and upland parks. This project will expand upon the work initiated by the
    “Parks, Open Space and Recreation” objectives in Kaslo’s 2016 Consolidated Parks Regulation, 2014 Sustainability Strategy for the Village of Kaslo, and the 2011 Village of Kaslo Official Community Plan. 
    Community consultation is central to the success of this project.  PROSC and the Project Management Team are requesting your input on the important values and uses for Kaslo’s waterfront and parks spaces.  The Team has already been engaging with community members in a variety of ways to gather information and ideas on park and waterfront use.
    How, Where and When can YOU participate?  
    The first public open house will be held on September 14, 2017, at J.V. Humphries
    Elementary/Secondary School from 5:30 pm – 8 pm. 
    This will be a “drop-in” format with no formal presentation in order to accommodate as many attendees as possible.  A second public open house will be held in October.
    Who should you contact for information? 
    On behalf of PROSC, the Project is being managed by Marie-Ange Fournier-Beck of VIVID Consulting Ltd. in Kaslo and Brian Arquilla of Mountain Pacific Environmental Consultants Ltd. from Vernon (the Project Management Team).
    The public consultation process is ongoing, throughout this project. If you are unable to attend the public open house, or if you have any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to forward them to: 
    Marie-Ange Fournier-Beck, marie_ange_fbeck@yahoo.com, 250.353.1335
    OR  Brian Arquilla, info@mtn-pac.com, 250.540.4623 
    OR  The Village of Kaslo:  Box 576, Kaslo, BC V0G 1M0

    Dominion Command has notified us of a fraudulent website that looks exactly like their website being advertised through Facebook. The website also has a fake poppy store on it which collects your credit card information. Please make sure the information below is distributed to your members and the community.

    Dominion Command issued the following statement:

    The Royal Canadian Legion warns members of the public of a fraudulent website that is misrepresenting themselves as the Legion. The website, displaying the Legion logo and VETS Canada logo plus information from the Legion’s national website, features an online ‘Legion Shop’ which sells Poppy items protected under trademark.

    Listed as www.legionca.com, this website was widely promoted using Facebook ads, even going so far as to create a bogus Facebook page to draw in supporters. The website is operating illegally and deceiving people into thinking they are supporting the Legion and Veterans through their purchases. Sites such as this may also be used to steal money and personal information with every transaction.

    The Legion has reported the website and Facebook pages to the authorities and has taken steps to have the website, Facebook page and ads removed. We encourage anyone who purchased items through the website to contact their financial institution to ensure their credit card and personal information are secure.

    Although their motivations are not known, the Legion is shocked and disgusted that our trademarks and goodwill have been used to mislead Canadians and to profit from their support for Veterans.
