A breath of fresh air to see Christmas in its true glory again.

Disappointed with the results of the fire hall referendum

Don’t we want our fire fighters to be as safe as they can be?

None of the requirements on which the referendum is based is cosmetic

Borrowing rates are very, very low right now

The Town of Creston would not be on the hook for $6.1M but $3.82M because BC Ambulance would be paying in .8M and contract areas would be paying $1.48M
