This month, writer Peter Worden dives into the history of masquerade balls and dances in Revelstoke, uncovering a dynamic chapter in local history, finding love affair innuendo, the trials and tribulations of a class-based clique system, a good old-fashioned Revelstoke public gripe-fest, and more. How times change.
After news broke that Revelstoke has the third-worst rate of illicit drug overdose deaths in B.C. reporter Melissa Jameson connected with stakeholders in the sector, including harm reduction workers, mental health workers, drug users, the police, and more. Her story focuses on what’s being done to prevent overdose death and injury, and what more can be done to stem the wave of opioid overdoses and deal with the root causes.
Writer Emily Kemp meets with Revelstoke resident Trish Khan, a humanitarian aid worker for Médecins Sans Frontières who works on the ground in some of the most challenging foreign aid crisis locations around the world. Khan shares her story of experience during pandemics there, including diseases often unknown to Canadians that bring suffering and hardship to those fleeing war, famine, genocide and more. The story presents an opportunity to pause and reflect on the challenges we face ahead.
In our Revelstoke Recovers feature, we spoke with community leaders who are engineering a Revelstoke response to the COVID-19 pandemic. They speak about the impact the pandemic has had on Revelstoke so far, and plans to help Revelstoke’s recovery in the months and years ahead.
