A student from the Social Services Worker Program, Selkirk College, Castlegar, BC, stopped by recently in an effort to make everyone more aware of the dangers of travelling in the cold weather. He had personal experience when a loved one's trip to the store almost turned deadly. Be safe out there, everyone! A short, quick trip to the store, you wouldn’t think required much planning. A sudden snow storm, foggy, cold weather, icy roads. It only takes a second for something to go wrong. Please be prepared for cold weather travel. It may save your life or the lives of your loved ones. (more…)
