Posted on June 24th, 2016 by


Dear Editor,
The Kinsmen Club of Windermere Valley has hosted the Columbia Valley’s annual Canada Day Fireworks for over 20 years and folks line Lake Windermere to catch a glimpse of the spectacular show.

However, Canada making a show about marking this year as the 100th year women have had the right to vote shows exactly how privileged people continue to write the history books, laws and stories of our country.
