Thanks for posting your wonderful TR. Back in the day, Haslam was one of my favourite lake paddles, especially when I could enjoy a quiet evening among the islands.

Nice TR, and good photos from a dreary day (I was getting wet at Lake O'Hara that same day!).

PS I still have my book too, first printing 1972 vintage.

Over the past month the CPR has been busy removing tracks and ties from its Okanagan Subdivision between Armstrong and Enderby. They graded the railbed and removed the years of weeds that had grown,...

In the Okanagan we are still bumping into snow every time we go above 1700 metres. It's taking its time melting this spring (again!). I can recommend some mid-elevation dayhikes but not a 2-3 day...

As others have partially explained, the proposed legislation DOES NOT change HOW logging takes place. It might only change WHO does the logging.

But it probably does not even do this. In most...

This is just sensationalism meant to play on people's fears. Typical "loggers are the bad guys" kind of stuff. Now, if somebody was proposing a ginormous gravel pit covering 20% of the island, then...

Nothing new there, oil and gas exploration has been happening on agricultural land for decades, at least since the 1950s. And it's relatively inocuous...build a pad, do some drilling, dig a trench,...
