Snow day in Parksville Qualicum Beach

SNOW DAY: Unlike many neighbouring areas, schools were open Monday in School District 69 (Qualicum) but buses were not running and many took a snow day to enjoy the projected 15 cm of slushy, white stuff, which slowed driving but sped up toboggans on the famous Parksville Community Park hill, where Alexis and Mya Mercier (above) had some fun Monday morning. Municipalities remind people it’s their responsibility to shovel sidewalks and they say they will plow roads on a priority basis. - Auren Ruvinsky photo
