Well balanced journalism
Read these two articles in reverse order. Seems like the original report was updated to maybe not be quite as crappy, but this recent piece was really well done.
I know next to nothing about life in the BC, but thought that the accounts of how it went down and the stories from the various parties told a balanced tale. Seems like its hard to find that kind of unbiased reporting these days. I'm not sure I'll ever be a BC or even sidecountry caliber boarder, but articles like these are a great way to get a glimpse into all the aspects that go into it. Well done and thanks to Killclimbz for sharing it. It is sad, but there's something to be said for living life to its fullest, and for doing something you love to the end.
