As we enter the midst of winter in a pandemic, the hospitality sector is facing grim times. Your favourite coffee shop, restaurant or pub is having a very rough go right now.

Chamber President Tanya Finley, also the owner of Finley’s Bar and Grill and Sage Tapas and Wine Bar joined Kootenay Morning today.
