Work on the Red Apple mural begins

Steve Wilejto was spotted working on the Red Apple mural last week. The mural is part of the village’s mural project through the BC Rural Divident Grant and has been awarded to Lakes Artisan Cooperative. Wilejto has already cleared the previous mural, sketched out an outline and started adding colour to it. His mural is promising to capture all of Burns Lake and its qualities.

The history of Topley Public School

In 1923, in exchange for a salary of $108 per month, a city boy named J. Ronald Todd accepted the job of principal and teacher at the Topley Public School. He and his mother left Vancouver, B.C. in late August, traveling north by steamship to Prince Rupert. After spending a night in that fair city, they boarded the Canadian National Railway for Topley.
