Emily Brydon Rediscovers the East Kootenays

When COVID brought her back home in March, I did my best to take advantage. Over the summer, I observed her getting reacquainted with a town that had developed and changed, just as she had, in the years they had been separated.

Best Patience in Fernie?

To Kate, the Best of Fernie includes exploring the endless trail networks at various speeds; being inspired to push her own physical boundaries by a wonderfully active and motivated community. It’s also been on her mind recently, however, that these things can be a double-edged sword.

Building Resilience to Thrive

After the tumult and financial bleeding of 2020, I think it is safe to say our local business community is cautiously optimistic for a new year and a new beginning in 2021.

Dave Morrison

2020 has thrown everyone for a loop. Reinventing your business, learning to work from home, becoming a teacher to your kids… there is no wonder the word of the year is “pivot!” Dave Morrison is no exception.

Expand, Engage and Escape

The new year offers a chance to reflect, to realign priorities and put mindful thought into the future. It’s a great time to skim read the past year, bind together its highlights and find lessons in the unplanned and unexpected. It’s a time to begin anew, fresh and ready to tackle anything.
