Good morning, Kelowna. The snow has been falling through the night and plows have been scraping it off roads since before dawn. Be careful out there, though. It’s slick. Now read on to learn a little more about the day.
1.) Anywhere between seven to 12 centimetres is expected to fall before tomorrow, according to Environment Canada. The first wave of snow will end late this morning and temperatures aren’t expected to rise above – 2 C, which is actually nice compared to last week.
2.) Supervised Injection sites help clean up neighbourhoods, says a top member of a Vancouver BIA area near InSite, who urges business owners to re-evaluate their stance.
4.) Christmas community spirit is always impressive this time of year. Volunteers flooded Kelowna’s Gospel Mission to feed approximately 700 people Christmas dinner. Check out our photos to get a feel for the event.
5.) In world news, tourists from Canada, Britain and Malaysia were hiding inside a Crusader castle during armed clashes between Jordan troops and gunmen at the site, Jordan’s interior minister said Monday, denying that foreigners had been held hostage at any point.
Sunday’s violent standoff capped a series of shootings that killed 10 people, including a Canadian tourist, and wounded 34 people.
