Access to electricity from the grid has made mining in remote areas of B.C.'s northwest possible for the first time. Business in Vancouver takes a look at the Red Chris mine, and how NTL is shaping the next generation of mining.
Members of B.C.'s Wildfire Management Branch lay down lines of fire next to Arrow Lakes Reservoir as part of a prescribed burn to improve habitat for mule deer, elk and bighorn sheep and smaller mammals. This work was funded by the Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program, with support from BC Parks and the Wildfire Management Branch. Fire is a natural, normal process in many ecosystems. It is beneficial and necessary to maintain a healthy forest and diversity of plant and animal life.
