For Thursday, December 12th.
City TV Calgary’s Breakfast Television crew is coming to Canmore tomorrow, and will be broadcasting their entire show live from Elevation Place! I spoke with Ted Henley about why they’ll be here and what they’ll be doing.
You’re invited to join the BT Calgary crew at Elevation Place between 5:30 and 9 tomorrow morning! They’ll be giving away prizes and serving up coffee and snacks. Plus you’ll get an opportunity to check out a live television broadcast, something we don’t get very often here!
Merry Christmas! Haley Bramble joined Karen and I to share a short story about Rudolph on today’s episode. Read the rest of the entry for the full story.

The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is contributing $10,000 towards Westslope Trout restoration in Banff National Park. I spoke with Teresa Homles, Environmental Systems Manager at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, and Shelley Humphries, Parks Canada Aquatics Specialist, about what the donation will do for the project.
The Bow Valley Elves campaign is back for a second year! The concept is simple – grab a tag from one of the trees around town, buy the gift on the tag, and bring it back. That gift will end up under the tree of a local senior. Organizer Christine de Soto says all the tags are claimed at our local schools but there are still a few left at TD Bank and Rusticana.
The Bow Valley Christmas Spirit Campaign prepares hampers for families in need over the holidays in Canmore, Exshaw, and Morley. With a week and a half to go in the campaign they need help, especially in the cash and toys department! They could also use assistance for hamper delivery on the 23rd. Kris Heilema tell us where they’re at and what they’re looking for right now.
Mountain FM is helping the Christmas Spirit Campaign with our annual Christmas Toy Drive! Thanks to new sponsors there are additional collection points around town this year – drop off new and unwrapped toys and gifts for kids of all ages (don’t forget about newborns and teens!) at ATB Financial in Canmore. Bow Valley Ford has also set up an F150 Truck in their showroom and encouraging you to “Fill the Ford” – we hope to have the entire bed of that truck full of toys for delivery to the Christmas Spirit Campaign by the end of next week!
Duck Duck Moose and ATB Financial Banff are also Toy Drive dropoff locations – we’ll highlight the Banff Santa’s Anonymous campaign in a post later this week.
With the red hot Canmore Eagles coming off two massive victories over the weekend against Olds and Fort Mac, the former #1 junior hockey team in Canada (Spruce Grove is now in that #1 spot, largely thanks to the Eagles shutout win on Saturday) the Canmore Eagles host the Calgary Canucks tonight. With the Canucks at the bottom of the AJHL standings, I asked Andrew Milne if a coach worries about his players taking it easy during a game like tonight. We also discussed the two weekend games, having two goaltenders who are both playing well, and the return of Luke Simpson.
Puck drops at 7pm. Catch the game at the Rec Centre and if you can’t make it listen live on Mountain FM!
Come and join the Rocky Mountain Section of the Alpine Club of Canada for a great night of fun, pizza, and photos 7pm tonight at the Canmore Seniors Centre.
First up is the Pizza Night – Members enjoy free pizza and pop while you catch-up with your friends. Beer is $3.00. Pizza and pop is $5.00 for non-members.
Followed by the results of the annual photo contest – enjoy seeing the best of your colleagues trips and travels.
Followed by the gear swap and new members orientation.
The gear swap is an opportunity to sell and used or excess gear. Any outdoor items from carabiners to tents. Should be clean and priced to sell.
The new members orientation is a chance for new members to meet those who have been here for a while, including trip leaders, and get some tips on how to get the most from their membership.
Assistant chair Steve Fedyna tells us more.
The opening ceremony is just getting underway as I type this up at the Canmore Nordic Centre for the Alberta World Cup! Two weeks of IPC Nordic skiing; it’s the first time the Nordic Centre has ever hosted a Paranordic World Cup event! Event chair Mike Carleton joined me on the show today.
