Rossland used up a portion of its 15 minutes of fame recently when Global TV News featured the Golden City in its Small Town B.C. feature.

Airing July 6, the 3:48 cut of video includes plenty of photographs shot in Rossland by Rosslanders, spiced with some local and recent history of the city.

Hosted by Sonia Beeksma of Vancouver’s Global, the feature also contained some explanation of the city’s evolution as a year-round tourist destination with the development of Red Stone’s 18-hole golf course and the popularity of the local mountain biking trails.

The feature is based on a collection of photographs from Rosslanders, sent in over the weeks prior to the feature airing.
