The Kootenay Planet
monthly visits: 1,000
The Kootenay Planet was created to fulfill a need in the West Kootenay for a common place for events listings, thereby binding the region together more closely. And while each community can take pride in its own uniqueness, there is much that can be accomplished through better coordination and communication. We believe we should be seeing ourselves as a citizens of the Kootenays, and The Kootenay Planet is our way of contributing to greater synergy and interaction.
