Good morning Kelowna, here’s what’s making news Oct. 26

A summary of what's making news in Kelowna and around the Okanagan

A bit of a gloomy morning greeted commuters on Wednesday

Cloudy skies greeted Kelowna commuters on Wednesday morning as dark clouds covered much of the Okanagan landscape.

Here’s a quick recap of news events around the Okanagan.

1. West Kelowna council is exploring options for a new city hall after voters said no to its plan in a recent referendum. Yesterday West Kelowna council said the Westbank area is still the best spot for city hall.

2. Kelowna RCMP said a report of a suspicious person around local schools earlier this month has been cleared up after police spoke with the teen involved.

In case you missed it, police in Kelowna also raided the Hells Angels clubhouse yesterday afternoon.

Then there was this:

3. North Westside’s regional district director Wayne Carson is taking aim at Victoria, saying the provincial government is not telling the truth about governance.

4. North Okanagan school officials say no creepy clowns are aloud around their schools.

5. Penticton sports fans are celebrating the arrival of a former Vee in the NHL, although Troy Stecher couldn’t help the Canucks, who lost last night.
