Ideas for making life better in the Kootenays through technology? The rewards could be more than the improvements themselves; there's a big cash award involved for winning this contest.

Smart cities use data and technology to create efficiencies,...

Spring seems to want to take its own sweet time in coming back to the southern Interior, and with that the gray days of winter are gradually being replaced by sun.  That comes as good news for us all, including the travelers who rely on regular flights in and out of our local airports.  Winter is a time of frustrating cancellations—turning back over Penticton, Castlegar, or Trail to return to...

Misguided government decisions that stalled revenues and failed to contain runaway costs are largely to blame for the financial crisis facing the Insurance Company of British Columbia (ICBC), finds a new study released today by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan Canadian public policy think-tank.

There is a war between the rich and poor, 
A war between the man and the woman. 
There is a war between the ones who say there is a war

Why don't you come on back to the war...

SCAMS: callers purporting to be from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) are again, or still, targeting residents. The caller will provide a name, and say that the resident owes back taxes and fees; he or she may also threaten the resident with a visit from the police if the resident fails to pay.  A new twist to the tired old CRA scams is a letter that looks as if it comes from the CRA, telling...
