Global Weirding - B.C. - and An Addition to the Family.

It's snowing on Vancouver's north shore mountains. Snow is accumulating on Grouse, Cypress and Mt. Seymour.

And British Columbians can welcome a new arrival to our coastal dolphin community. Short-beaked common dolphins have moved into the Salish Sea. Usually not seen north of California these dolphins seem to be migrating out of hotter southern waters or they're travelling in pursuit of their traditional bait fish.

Other resident dolphin species include the orca, Pacific white sided dolphin, Dall's porpoise, harbour porpoise, Northern Right Whale dolphin,  Risso's dolphin and striped dolphin.
