“2015: Both heartening and heartbreaking,” is the headline for the Vancouver Sun editorial on December 31, 2015
For British Columbia, this was the year of the great drought, dwindling snow packs, melting glaciers, beleaguered salmon runs and a costly forest fire season, followed by windstorms and heavy rains. Launched from a powerful El Nino, storms caused the single largest electrical outage in the province’s history.
