British Columbia pedestrian accident leaves child in coma

Many young families in British Columbia choose to live in neighbourhoods where traffic is minimal, largely local and with appropriate speed limits.

That's just what's happening in British Columbia this winter, as motorists encounter hazardous road conditions.
