Pro-choice students and anti-abortionists displayed their clashing views at Okanagan College’s Kelowna campus Tuesday afternoon.

A Penticton teen’s parents told him he would be evicted, albeit jokingly.

Kelowna’s mayor says councillor Ryan Donn will not be exempt from a new buskers bylaw if he chooses to play his guitar downtown without a permit in protest.
