Your March 13 Morning Brief

Check out the top stories of the day in the Okanagan-Shuswap with Carmen Weld’s Black Press Morning Brief.

Mounties have identified the body found at the Dotmar pulp mill in Kamloops as David Michael Jeff, an evacuee from last summer’s wildfire.

Kelowna firefighters were kept busy this morning with two separate fires.

It was a (relative) scorcher of a day across the province as 10 communities saw record-breaking temperatures on Monday.

Vancouver Coastal Health’s four-legged infection fighter made a road-trip to Kelowna on Monday to showcase his C. difficile detection abilities.

Canada’s Defence Minister says a Vernon art project is a perfect example of how nations came together in times of the world wars, and a great message of unity and diversity.

Hundreds of people attended the Black Press Extreme Education and Career Fair Monday in Kelowna.

The Weather forecast today for the Okanagan-Shuswap is calling for a mix of sun and cloud with a welcome warm high of 10 C.

Tomorrow we’re looking at periods of rain ending in the afternoon then cloudy with a 40 per cent chance of showers and a high of 7 C.
