Environment Canada reminds  the public that highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery.

Take extra care when walking or driving in affected areas. Slow down driving in slippery conditions. Watch for taillights ahead and maintain a safe following distance.


When I drive on days like today I can’t help but think that Price George is blessed with an extra special kind of stupid behind the wheel. From the dud in the jacked up Dodge Ram who figures conditions are fine for doing a buck ten down the Hart to the guys with the summer tires spinning in the intersections to the guy straddling the middle of the street coming down 5th, we have them all.

Then there are the people driving without headlights or running lights in this low-visibility weather in the early morning gloom.

billposer, I agree!

Headlights people, headlights!!

And while we are at it, taillights people, taillights!!
