February is Heart & Stroke Month

During the month of February Lac Le Jeune residents Pat Burton and Jenny Perry will be canvassing our community for donations to the Heart & Stroke Foundation. In the past the Lac Le Jeune community has donated generously to this organization. A donation of any amount is welcome.

As a leading funder of heart and stroke research in Canada, hundreds of research teams depend on the Foundation to support their work year after year. This important work leads to earlier diagnoses, leading-edge treatments and world-class prevention strategies. Please help us continue to support this vital research by making a donation to the Heart & Stroke Foundation. If you would like to donate, but will not be around during canvassing, you can reach Pat by email at or Jenny at

Update on obtaining ID and punch cards

Another update on obtaining ID and punch cards was sent out to Lac Le Jeune residents by email this morning:
Seasonal residents may call Adriana Mailloux at TNRD at 250-377-8673. She will send out the ID and punch cards for the Lac Le Jeune transfer station. Adriana will also be at the Lac Le Jeune transfer station Sunday January 17th to hand out more cards. She will post a notice on the transfer station gate.
Note there was a comment (anonymous) on an earlier blog post about the Sunday hours to say they are 1:00 to 4:00, and not 2:00 to 5:00 as originally posted.

Further to the above, this is the latest public notice from TNRD arrived today.
To: Lac Le Jeune Residents

Pop Goes the Weasel!

If you've walked along the Lac Le Jeune Park Drive West recently you may have spotted this little neighbourhood ermine. He likes to hang out along the edge of the lake, and he's been known to pop his head up ice fishing holes! This photograph was taken by Frank Morton.
