“This week on the Mercer Report, Rick travels to Fernie, BC to take in the sights and sounds of the 40th annual Griz Days Winter Festival.
Also, Rick goes to the University of Waterloo Centre for Automotive Research where he gets behind the wheel of a self-driving car.
Airs Tuesday March 14 at 8PM (8:30 NT) on CBC.”
If only you knew how much happened between the day Michelle and I signed up for this show and now. It’s been quite a crazy ride!! We’d love it if you joined us on Thursday, February 23rd to celebrate the opening of our show and to celebrate us surviving it. If you’re not familiar with Michelle Galway or myself, we’ll be the drunk ones in the corner high-fiving each other whilst crying.

The Fernie Lantern Festival is just 2 days away. Aahhee yaaaaeee! Our lantern Community Builds are done and there are so many lanterns in the works. It’s going to be an incredible sight! But I just wanted any of my readers to know, if you didn’t get a chance to make your own lanterns, Hospice artists/volunteers created some that are going to be available for $10 at the Arts Station (Nov 19) from 6pm – all proceeds to Hospice. Support a great local cause and join the event at 6:30! They sold out last time so get there early.
While we’re talking about fundraising, Bright Beginnings Community Preschool will be set up at the Aquatic Centre grounds with snacks to eat. Don’t forget to bring some change!
And, of course, there will be free hot chocolate – thanks, Starbucks!
