Your March 6 Morning Brief

Check out the top stories of the day in the Okanagan-Shuswap with Carmen Weld’s Black Press Morning Brief.

A 66-year-old man is now facing a charge of second degree murder following an incident at a Logan Lake motel.

Three people from Kelowna are facing a series of drug trafficking charges in Saskatchewan.

A Kelowna resident was sentenced to two years of probation for exposing himself at a Salvation Army Thrift Store in Rutland.

The show is almost over for a long-running video store in Summerland.

A renewed focus on engaging young people, and particularly women, in trades and technology as early as high-school is among the initiatives being championed by industry and educators alike.
