Stormy weather

Wednesday's wind whipped up a real dust storm from the area cleared for expansion of Interoute's gravel pit off Westside Road. Stuart Andrews and other residents who live across the Columbia River from the pit are fighting the proposed expansion, which is likely going to be a topic of discussion at a Columbia Park Neighbourhood Committee meeting on June 30 at the Community Centre. The meeting starts at 7 pm. Photo courtesy of Stuart Andrews
The winds that blew gravel pit dust all over town on Wednesday also damaged one of the walls going up on the fourth floor of the new Best Western being constructed on Laforme Boulevard. Photo courtesy of Ken Talbot
