Premier Christy Clark has commended members of the Ahousat First Nation for their courage in rescuing people from a capsized whale-watching boat. Five people from Britain died in the tragedy Sunday, and one person from Australia is still missing. Clark says her father was a fisherman who was once rescued from the water on B-C's coast. (Clark says she will nominate the Ahousat First Nation and the mayor of Tofino for a newly established citizens award.)
