Humanity has played a significant role in changing the climate of our little blue dot. The past few decades have seen our time in the naughty corner increase, with Mother Nature (and David Attenborough, among others) scolding us to get our act together. We see her wrath in rising temperatures, thunderous storms, bushfires, floods, and extreme climates. She’s mad, and we did this. We need to do better. 

In Fernie, the women of the non-profit, Community Energy Association (CEA), believe that not only can small communities contribute to solutions, we can be leaders. This leadership-focused approach defines CEA’s work and has accelerated action on climate change in communities across western Canada.

With spring in the air, many people will be heading outside to do spring clean up around their homes and properties and the RDEK is urging residents doing any spring burning to use caution.

“Anyone doing spring burning must make sure they are taking steps to be prepared by having a water source, shovel or tools, burning when it’s not windy and staying on site monitoring the fire until it is completely out,” says Columbia Valley Rural Fire & Rescue Chief Jim Miller.
