September is back to school month, which is a big change for school-aged children. But, adults, even those that don’t have young children, also need to tweak their habits in so far as driving is concerned. When the kids head back to school, all of us drivers need to be more aware of where school speed zones start and end. We also need to pay special attention to our responsibilities toward school buses.
The Motor Vehicle Act establishes the maximum speed and time periods allowed in all school zones. Section 147 of the Motor Vehicle Act reads:
With hunting season right around the corner, and some recent events that were on the news regarding firearm storage in the flooded town of High River, Alberta, I thought an appropriate topic would be safe fire arm storage.

B2 Body Beauty would like to welcome Lindsay Reynolds to its team. Lindsay moved to Fernie in 2008 from Oakville, Ontario.

Last month’s article discussed your right to remain silent upon arrest or detention, which is something that too many people don’t take advantage of. As promised, this month I will deal with some of your other rights upon arrest or detention.
When police arrest you, they must identify themselves and tell you the reason for the arrest. If you are not sure, ask the police if you are under arrest and why.

This article is the first in a two part series about your rights and obligations upon investigation, detention or arrest by police.
In Canada, we have the right to remain silent. If you think this is called “taking the fifth,” you watch too much Law & Order because that saying is a reference to the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Rather, in Canada, your right to remain silent is found at sections 7 and 11(c) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
One of the first decisions when planning your vacation or visit to Fernie is where to stay. Does staying on the hill or in town better suit your needs? Is your group large enough that a house rental is the best option?
