Why is my favourite flower girl moving?
Doris Lancaster – going but not gone
We look forward to floral colour from her new location once she gets settled.
Due to air quality, Music in the Park is moving across the park this evening from the band shell to its indoor venue, the Oliver Community Hall. Come listen in comfort to the RCAF “Command Brass” with special guests the “RCAF Clarinet Quartet” on Thursday August 10, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. They are promising a great show, including music from Game of Thrones, Pirates of the Caribbean, Carmen, the Beatles, and the classics. You can still bring your own comfy chair, but chairs will also be available in the hall. Donations are welcome for the Oliver Community Arts Council. Be sure to browse and buy at the Evening Market in the park on your way to the concert. Great art, jewelry, crafts, baking, coffees, fresh produce, and food vendors!

Government takes action to protect B.C. over Kinder Morgan pipeline and tanker traffic expansion
VICTORIA – The provincial government is taking initial action on its commitment to protect British Columbia’s interests in the face of the proposed expansion of the Kinder Morgan pipeline and increased tanker traffic.
At a news conference today, Environment and Climate Change Strategy Minister George Heyman and Attorney General David Eby outlined both legal and consultation steps the government will take immediate action on.
“Our government made it clear that a seven-fold increase in heavy oil tankers in the Vancouver harbour is not in B.C.’s best interests,” said Heyman. “Not for our economy, our environment, or thousands of existing jobs. We will use all available tools to protect our coastal waters and our province’s future.”
The British Columbia government has secured Thomas Berger, QC, OC, OBC as external counsel to government in the legal action related to Trans Mountain Expansion Pipeline.
Only a few days left to register for this VERY helpful workshop. The afternoon session is almost full, (2 spots left) and the evening has openings (5 spots left)
The RDOS is pleased to promote and be a part of this upcoming workshop opportunity. The New BC Water Sustainability Act requires well owners (with a well serving more than one residence or for agricultural/commercial purposes) to register their wells.
Tyrion Miskell of BC Grapegrowers responded to calls from grape growers requesting assistance in filling out the well licensing application and organized this workshop.
The Province is supporting this event supplying Ministry of Agriculture staff to assist in the application process, to be there to answer questions and offer personal hands on computer input assistance. The small cost is to offset the rental of the room and computers.
The RDOS has also fielded calls from a variety of agricultural producers with the same request.
This is a good opportunity to be able to offer hands-on assistance at nearly no-cost to well owner/producers (across all sectors) throughout our region.
