Salmon Point Restaurant Burns To The Ground

March 02, 2019

The early morning solitude of Salmon Point, 20 km south of Campbell River, was rocked by the sound of sirens this morning as fire engulfed the Salmon Point Restaurant and Pub.

Fire broke out before 5 a.m. when firefighters from Oyster River and Campbell River fire departments arrived, area resident Warren Janes said.

“I live on Salmon Point and was woken by the sirens and lights,” Janes said. “Our power was turned off in the area and I walked down after seeing the rising smoke.”

The Salmon Point Restaurant and Pub is a popular location on the shore of Georgia Strait in a rural area south of Campbell River that has been in business since 1982.

Ferry Cuts To Be Re-instated

February 25, 2019


The province has announced its re-instating ferry service on 10 routes that were cut in 2014.

That means 2,700 round-trip sailings will be added for those who live in coastal communities.

Claire Trevena, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure said some of the cuts made in 2014 had been reinstated, including one on the Sunshine Coast.

“For the Sunshine Coast, that’s basically Powell River to Texada, the other ones were re-instated already.”

At the same time the service changes were announced, Trevena also released the Redlin report, an operating review of the coastal ferry service that identifies opportunities to improve services under the current model.

The Redlin report had more than 60 recommendations including one to establish a long-term vision for ferries and to connect coastal communities in a more integrated manner.

One of those recommendations includes the establishment of an advisory council made up of representatives from municipalities, industry, chambers and other organizations that currently may not have a say in ferry operations.

Trevena said they’ll look at the broader picture for ferry service including passenger-only ferry services.

Part of that broader picture includes passenger ferry service for communities.

When Trevena was asked about whether the government will be supporting the passenger ferry service that’s in the works for Nanaimo, she was non-committal.

“I am very aware of the project and very interested to see how it moves on. I think it would be a game-changer for Naniamo to see a foot ferry. We are just waiting to see how that evolves.”

Passenger ferry service for Nanaimo was a promise many of the candidates in the recent Nanaimo election threw their support behind, including the NDP.

Thanks! (this post from Suzanne Trevis)

Name the Puppy 2019: Help the RCMP name their newest puppies

February 15, 2019

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police needs your help to name the next generation of police dogs.

The chosen names will be given to 13 German Shepherd puppies born at the Police Dog Service Training Centre in Innisfail, Alberta.

The 13 children whose names are selected will each receive a laminated 8×10-inch photo of the pup they name, a plush dog named Justice and an RCMP baseball cap.

Contest rules are simple

  • Names must begin with the letter "M"

  • Names must have no more than nine letters

  • Names must be one or two syllables

  • Contestants must live in Canada and be 14 years old or younger

  • Only one entry per child will be eligible

  • Entries must be received by March 26, 2019

Contest winners and the winning names will be announced on April 30, 2019, on the RCMP website and social media.

There are two ways to enter

  1. Enter online

  2. Send a letter to the following address. Be sure to print the child's name, address, telephone number and the suggested name for a puppy.

    Attn: "Name the Puppy Contest"
    Police Dog Service Training Centre
    Box 6120
    Innisfail, AB T4G 1S8

We love to receive drawings and paintings! If submitting by mail, children are invited to get creative with their entries.

Winning names will be chosen by the PDSTC staff. A draw will determine the winning entry in the event of multiple submissions of the same puppy name.

Although there can be only 13 winners, names not selected for the contest will be considered for other puppies born during the year.
