As with many previous Novembers, we will soon see an influx of new faces into Fernie. Some of the new faces will be from other locales within Canada, but many will come from outside the country.
Every time I update my resume or write a cover letter I have to admit that I’m surprised at the work involved. My mind goes blank on what to say and how to say it let alone what I’ve been doing in the last years. It feels like the first time I rode the Haul Back T-Bar… I’m a tad overwhelmed, feeling a bit self-conscious, and knowing I just need to dive in as the outcome is well worth it.

It is difficult not to notice the hustle and bustle of October. Last rides are sought, wood is split and stacked for the winter, kids are in full extra-curricular swing, and conversations begin to turn toward snow. Fernie is very much a seasonal town, which also means that many people at this time of year are challenged to find work. My hope in writing to you in the next months is to provide some insight into the process of finding, getting, and keeping a job.
Elk Valley Family Chiropractic

Dr. Mike Rumpel has recently joined the Chiropractic Cancer Foundation for Children. “We will enrich the lives of children suffering from cancer by helping to ease their pain and nurture a process of self healing,” says Rumpel.
When parents of children separate, one of the first issues that should come up is what amount of child support should be paid. Initially, this can increase tension in an already tense relationship, but it really shouldn’t. You see, child support is to support the child or children in the relationship. This seems like a very basic principle, but it’s something that often gets lost in the emotion of a separation and/or divorce.
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
571A 2nd Ave
B2 Body Beauty would like to welcome Lindsay Reynolds to its team. Lindsay moved to Fernie in 2008 from Oakville, Ontario. Soon after her move, she fell in love with the community and lifestyle that Fernie had to offer and knew this was where she wanted to call home. She decided to pursue a career in Esthetics. Having the chance to work in a spa in a ski town was the perfect fit for her.
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. You do have a right against arbitrary detention, which means several things, including that you do not have to go with the police if they have not placed you under arrest.
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?
