Patient Care Tower construction

Interior Health has a webcam (click image below) just in case you want to check on the progress of the new Penticton Regional Hospital Patient Care Tower.

This will be much more interesting once the project is complete and they time-lapse the images.  Until then the webcam provides a quick and easy way to check the weather in Penticton!

South Okanagan feels strain of demographic shift

Out with the new and in with the old. The future of Canada is right here in Penticton and they are starting to get a little grey around the hairline or what’s left of it. New population numbers from Statistics Canada show that the boom that produced a staggering increase in babies from 1946 right into the early 1960s is about to have its last great affect on Canadian demographics. The baby-boomers are becoming seniors, and with our warm weather and lack of snow days attracting elderly people of means from across the country, B.C. is well ahead of the demographic curve.
