I wish castanet wouldn't put headlines like " black bear flees raging fire".
I think we all know that thousands of animals die horrid deaths in forest fires.
It's horrid enough without the headlines.

The media makes a lot of money from stories about the fires. They will post anything that will get them more views.

*Edit, castanet is usually pretty good for information and doesn't post stories like that very often.

The sad part is that obviously such emotionalized garbage "sells" or it would not be there. Or would appear in a different. less emotionalized, format.

July 8th compared to July 11th. Looks much better already, and there's way more rain in the forecast.

The government needs to get tough on people that start forest fires. I know it's hard to prove. But if someone is found guilty, there should be a minimum 6 months jail sentence. If we see people flicking buts out the window, we should take a picture of the car and licence and post it. There is a web page called @hi* parkers of Kelowna. Someone should start a web page, "Butt heads of western Canada" or "Butt Heads of BC." I would but i don't have time or really know how to. Someone please start a web page, we need to shame these people.

Summer is coming back and so will the dry conditions. We hardly received any rain, unfortunately.
