If it is smoke, more then likely from a combination of those with wood heat & a lack valley bottom air movement/venting.
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

We were wondering the same thing, took this picture above West Kelowna yesterday.

Found this, appears bsuds may be right. On our hike yesterday we were actually saying to ourselves, while walking on a bed of pine needles an inch and a half deep, that this is a perfect time to do some slash burning and wondering why they weren't. Happy to see at least some areas of the province are proactively fighting forest fires.

Most likely open burning on farms.

Major slash burning all over the Okanagon and north east of Kamloops.
Like we didn’t have to choke on enough smoke all summer!
How about chipping that wood instead into mulch instead of pollution!
Better yet, have the culprits pay a carbon tax on that burning!,,

I wouldn't call the lumber industry "culprits".

for the last 14 years the smoke in our valley has become almost unbearable...so these farm and forest burn offs are just way over the top when so many of us are forced to breath all their smoke...there are many ways to burn with out smoke eg the burn curtain kelowna owns....

I'm not sure how a burn curtain would work in such large areas where the lumber industry has the slash burns (they are massive).

It's okay it's just Tolko illegally lighting slash piles that are less than 100 meters from my house which is provincial law, as well as lighting upwards of twenty slash piles within a 1.5 mile radius of my property yesterday which was listed a a poor venting day. But that's okay because if you do it when it's low overcast nobody will notice right? Closest pile was 76 meters from my house.
