A new fundraiser for the Canmore Community Daycare the whole family can enjoy is coming to Centennial Park 11am – 4pm Saturday!
Jay Honeyman from Alberta Fish and Wildlife joined me on the show today to let us know what the bears are up to in the final days of summer. Basically, they’re hungry and are finding easy pickings on ornamental fruit trees in neighbourhoods, leading to increased sightings in our towns and hamlets.
Report any sightings of bears or other wildlife of concern in town to 403-591-7755 in Canmore/Kananaskis and 403-762-1470 in Banff National Park.
Banff Mayor Karen Sorensen joined me on the show this morning to discuss yesterday’s special council meeting to respond to the petition against the paid parking trial in Banff, reiterating why council decided to rescind the motions related to the trial rather than go the plebiscite route and why they’ll wait another two weeks to do it. She also said paid parking wouldn’t necessarily be off the table among other options to reduce traffic congestion in Banff if the data supports it, but she would be open to a community vote if something more permanent was considered.

Remember how much fun the first edition of Canmore Uncorked was? It wasn’t just a bounty for our bellies – it ended up being a real boon for our local restaurant and hotel industry during a normally slow month.

At a special meeting of Banff Town Council, after hearing from a number of residents both for and against the issue, council essentially voted to end the paid parking trial in two weeks. With the valid petition necessitating a response, Mayor Sorensen felt a community vote would be a waste of time and money since the paid parking trial would be over by the time it happens. Her motion, which was passed, pushed final reading of a bylaw to rescind all motions relating to the paid parking trial to another special meeting set for September 29th.
Tanya Foubert and I discussed the meeting and the result.
