SOME SOUTH CARIBOO NEWS

June 25, 2017
Fire near Lac La Hache is contained but BCWS worried it could still spread
There are 50 firefighters on scene, backed up by a helicopter and some heavy equipment. Crews are working to reinforce the containment lines which were established on Saturday around the entirety of the fire. The fire's cause has been confirmed to be lightning. While the fire's “out of control” status might suggest concern for the public, it's more about the wildfire service remaining cautious.

May 18, 2017
Drastic drop in South Cariboo cattle
Pete Bonter is a third-generation rancher whose six children have all decided to pursue other, more lucrative career choices than agriculture.“Historically, we have smaller ranches in the South Cariboo anyhow but the demographics of it is that we’re all getting older and this is a particularly hard area to ranch in,” says Bonter. “The shift right now is from smaller to larger holdings."

May 4, 2017
Demo Forest and Nature Trail officially open
On May 3, the District of 100 Mile House officially opened the trail, which is part of a complex of trails at the 99 Mile recreation site located on Ainsworth Rd, just south of 100 Mile House. The trail is a loop, 5.7 km long, and takes about two hours to walk according to a local walking group who was on hand for the opening.

BACKGROUND

March 21, 2017
Union of BC Indian Chiefs back Tsilhqot'in Nation's position on New Prosperity
For the Province to advance an amendment process for the Prosperity mine despite the findings of the federal environmental assessment process and the profound impact such a project would have on the Tsilhqot'in Nation, is in direct contravention of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
