MERRITT — With another winter weather system making its way through the higher elevations this evening (Jan. 19), Environment Canada has continued their snowfall warning on the Coquihalla Highway from Hope to Merritt.

VAVENBY, BC — On December 30th, a transport truck went into the North Thompson River just south of Avola, rupturing its fuel tanks and spilling over 300 litres of fuel into the river. The incident prompted the TNRD to issue a “Do Not Use” order for residents downstream of the spill.
