    Avalanche Canada funding problem due to BC election

    Despite B.C. NDP government promise, Avalanche Canada, the Revelstoke-based national avalanche forecasting and safety organization is left out in the cold with no funding commitment as record backcountry snow touring season looms.

    Valade says the snap election call by the John Horgan government has put funding for the organization in question. Their existing grants are not guaranteed, and the grant-based funding means they receive funding news late into the season, potentially interrupting staffing levels.

    Full article at https://www.revelstokemountaineer.co...election-call/

    "the confirmed BC Government funding so far for this coming year is zero dollars. This means we are obligated to start planning for cost-cutting measures. We will be sure to inform our users of any cuts to programs."

    I think you will find the liberals are asleep at the switch and the NDP called the election cuz they knew they could get in again. I predict apres election some money will come thru later in the game which is what happened last year or maybe it was the year before?

    our american cousins should note in BC the liberals are actualy the conservatives

    the Liberal campaign is on life support ^^ apparently , Andrew Wilkinson was interviewed on CBC today, he was pretty sharp but will likely be a sharp loser

    no wonder they posted this on FB

    When there's no avalanche forecast available, the Dangerator can help you estimate the danger using weather data and field observations.

    I didn't believe in reincarnation when I was your age either.

    Not exactly. MAYBE their promise in the legislature, which they didn't follow through on before the election, still stands. But even if it does it is discretionary funding and will be bottom of the to do list of the responsible Minister (who may change in the new cabinet). Certainly won't happen in time for this winter season.

    Michelle Trudeau was the victim of an Aviy and is still somewhere in Kokanee lake,

    I can't see funding of Avalanche Canada just fading away
