The Okanagan Skaha School District says the time is right to sell a strip of property next to Queen’s Park Elementary.

Environment Canada has now cancelled a snowfall warning that issued late Tuesday for Revelstoke, the Shuswap and North Thompson. There are currently no weather warnings in effect in B.C.
