Your evening recap, Kelowna, for Oct. 18, 2016

A rundown of the top five things making news today in Kelowna, across the nation and in the world

  • Oct. 18, 2016 8:00 a.m.

As we get set for hump day tomorrow and close out Persons Day in Canada, here’s your top five things that you may have missed today.

1. Locally, investigators continued to investigate the fatal plane crash last Thursday night but now say the official cause may never be known.

In the latest report today, a TSB official said “In this case we have no witnesses and no survivors and the information we are going to get from the wreckage is compromised because of the level of destruction.”

2. Central Okanagan bus drivers today said enough isn’t being done about safety, after BC Transit unveiled new bus cameras.

3. Nationally, Gord Downie’s latest project highlighting the problems with our indigenous people was on centre stage tonight as he performed from his latest album.

4. In sports the Kelowna female peewee A hockey team won a gold medal by hosting and winning its own tournament in Kelowna.

5. The weather tomorrow looks good, mainly sunny, and they are saying it will stay that way through Saturday.
