Top news stories for 2013

It was another busy year around the Okanagan with a number of stories vying for the top headlines of 2013. 

The following list is a compilation of video news stories that we believe mattered the most this past year.

         5. Two buildings with a significant history in West Kelowna are destroyed by fire and each is deemed to be arson.         (The Westbank Lions Hall and the Shannon Lake Golf Clubhouse.)

         4.  A massive fire rips through the Legacy Condo complex on Rutland Road, displacing over 30 families.

         3. Police remain tight lipped on circumstances surrounding the double homicide of Tiffany Goruk and her Boyfriend Jeremy Snow in West Kelowna.
         3 b. Little information has also been released regarding the murder of a 27-year- old mother of two in Glenmore.

         2. Joelon Verma is found guilty of first-degree murder in the 2010 slaying of Brittney Irving.

And the Top Story for 2013 is...
