Morning Start: Can dogs get cavities?

Your morning start for Tuesday, May 19, 2020

Get out your rain boots and jacket, the forecast is calling for rain all week.

In Penticton:

In Salmon Arm:

In case you missed it:

Downtown Kelowna was quite lively on what was a bright and sunny Victoria Day on May 18.

Residents were able to enjoy the sun as well as a flyover by local pilots in honour of the fatal CF Snowbirds crash in Kamloops on Sunday that took the life of Capt. Jenn Casey.

Well, that’s one way to ensure social distancing.
