With the School District No. 8 (Kootenay Lake) board scheduled to vote April 22 on the staff recommendation to move Homelinks from the Creston Education Centre to Canyon-Lister Elementary School, a petition has been created to support leaving the program where it is.

“I, a resident of Creston or surrounding area and of the age of majority, request that Creston Homelinks remain in the Creston Education Centre, and motion that SD8 and all those involved absolve any recommendation on relocating,” says the petition.

It can be found and signed at, and the link can also be found and shared from the Advance’s Facebook page. The petition’s creators are hoping for 1,000 signatures; 67 had been received by Tuesday morning.
