PETERS – Wildfires part of the rent we pay for living in paradise

WHEN I WAS young, growing up on the prairies, B.C. was a mythical place.

The rugged mountains and pristine lakes were the stuff of postcards and TV fishing shows, not real life.

Then, my family visited BC a couple of times before I was 12 years old, and for the first time, I could see that it was real.

My childish question became, “Why doesn’t everyone live here?”
