Hope Air provides medical flights for people across Canada, including those who call the West Kootenay region home. Columbia Power has supported the work of Hope Air with a sponsorship of $2500, a donation which will help eight local residents access Hope Air’s services.

Last month, Columbia Power had the chance to meet with a few West Kootenay residents at the Trail Regional Airport who have accessed Hope Air’s services. These include people like Connie Lew, and her sons Chris and Corbin, and Melissa Henderson and her family.

“We are so pleased to support the efforts of Hope Air, said Sue Dyer, Vice President of Operations for Columbia Power. They make a difference in the lives of families in our communities.”
