Funding boost from Teck for The Great Trail in the Kootenays

The Great Trail in the Kootenays is getting a big funding boost from Teck Resources.

It's a one million dollar donation for front line Trail Groups, and municipalities, and indigenous communities to make upgrades between Castlegar and the BC Alberta Border, including Trail.

Trisha Kaplan is the Trails Development Manager for Western and Northern Canada.

She says while the Great Trail across Canada was connected in 2017, it will never be complete.

There's still work to be done, including making them ore accessible for people with disabilities, and repairing damage caused by floods and fires, and general maintenance and upgrades.
