  • Incorporation: Paradise Lost

    by on July 20, 2017 - Comments

    I grew up in a semi-rural municipality in BC’s Lower Mainland where most people had small acreages with modest homes surrounded by woodland. Even in the late 1990s, it looked a lot like Salt Spring. When I went back there recently, I found it radically changed. Many of the family farms that once shaped the […]

  • Incorporation: We Can Do So Much Better

    by on July 19, 2017 - Comments

    What we have on Salt Spring is rural sprawl. It’s the opposite approach to community planning that one would expect to see. Ganges is dead after 6PM, everyone clears out and goes home. You could fire a cannon and no one would even notice. What if home for more people was right in Ganges? Just […]
