Gallery Cabaret at ArtSpring

    News & Events    January 23, 2013

    I have lived on Salt Spring Island for exactly 50 years. Arriving here was a big lesson in politics for me. Where I hadπ lived before, mainly in Calgary, politics was something that was “out there;” it was something that we read about or watched on the news and sometimes it was interesting, or scary, […]

  • Incorporation: Which side are you on?

    by on July 25, 2017 - Comments

    So which side are you on – Positively NO or Negatively YES? The Incorporation question by it’s nature divides our community rather than uniting it in creating an inclusive model for self-government. Some folks win, and others inevitably lose. Why would we do this to ourselves? (More below). Once upon a time the Duncan area […]

  • 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 […]
