“Prince Rupert Minor Hockey Association is extremely grateful for the ongoing support CityWest has provided over the years. Our organization wouldn’t succeed if it wasn’t for the generosity of the business community and as such, children in Prince Rupert have benefited from CityWest’s corporate citizenship.”

Veterans and mountains featured on Community Television this month
Posted: March 09, 2017
TERRACE – The fog of the D-Day invasion. The mist of snow swiffing off skis. A pillar of the community of Terrace. A mountain that brings people together.
These scenes, and more, are featured in “We Remember Them” and “Your Mountain,” two programs that will make their debut on CityWest Community Television this month.
“We’re very proud to bring the stories of local veterans and of a ski hill run by a co-op,” says Devin Wall, Community Channel Manager. “These stories will make you proud to be part of our Northern communities.”
In “We Remember Them,” host Charlie Meek speaks to veterans living in the North, and listens as they re-live their memories of military service. Premiering on March 15 at 8:30 p.m., the first episode will feature the stories of Bill McRae, a Second World War veteran who took part in D-Day, and who was named a freeman of the City of Terrace for his contributions to the community.
There will be an episode airing every Wednesday night at 8:30 p.m., and each one will present the stories of other veterans from around the region. “Listening to the stories of people who served their country is one way we can honour them for their sacrifice and their duty,” says host Meek.
Exploring another aspect of Northern living, “Your Mountain” is a half-hour special that celebrates the place that Shames Mountain inhabits in the communities of Terrace, Prince Rupert, Kitimat, and beyond. CityWest Community Television talked to skiers, boarders, volunteers, and employees of the ski hill, to get a sense of what makes Shames so special and unique. “Plus, we got some contributed footage of skiers shredding some pretty gnarly runs,” says Wall.
“Your Mountain” will debut on March 27 at 6 p.m., and will be re-broadcast on March 29 and 31 at the same time.
