A selection of stories for Nov. 29

These Greater Victoria stories for Nov. 29 are brought to you by Victoria Video Network (VVN).

Hillside’s Canadian Tire will match donations for the Fix-A-Heart campaign. The campaign raises money for cardiac care at Royal Jubilee Hospital. For more information on this story, click here.

Victoria currently has no policies against vehicle businesses using free charging stations. Beginning Dec. 1, Kelowna-based Current Taxi will take full advantage of this to fuel its taxi fleet. For more information on this story, click here.

The Sierra Club has determined that a potted tree is the best option for Christmas. A tree that can live year-round in a pot is more environmentally friendly. For more information on this story, click here.
