The Flood

The Flood

Cougar Creek in Canmore looked wild and exciting on the evening of Wednesday, June 19. My partner Toby and I were staying with Toby’s brother whose house backs directly on to the creek, and we went for a stroll before bed. The fire department was starting to put up caution tape, and the bank was abuzz with walkers and joggers. Almost everyone wielded a camera.

By 5:30 a.m. on Thursday, the story had entirely changed. As the fire department pounded on doors up and down the street, we heard our names.

“Toby! Jenny! We’ve got to get out.” . . .

Banff Centre Radio

Banff Centre Radio

The Banff Centre, Canada’s premiere destination for creative minds, is getting into the radio business. This year, the centre plans to launch three stations: renovations of the English and French Park Radio stations that have broadcast in various forms for years, and a new English music station.

I have the opportunity to spend the summer at the Centre to help get these stations off the ground.
