    by on 2 hours ago - Comments

    A group of ex-Fire Board Trustees have written a letter to the current trustees chastising them for not coming out in favour of incorporation after an attempt was made to strong arm them to do so. Our current trustees sensibly waited to hear what the “no” folks had to say. That group didn’t ask the […]

  • Twisted Town Hall

    by on 3 hours ago - Comments

    What a hoot it was! Community members gathered at the gazebo in Centennial Park, drawn by the danceable dance tunes, the day’s last warm rays on the grassy hillock, and the frolicking and giggling clowns. It was the Twisted Town Hall ― a Referendum Social for In-Co-operation. Organized and hosted by Nomi Lyons and Robert […]

    I went from a staunch YeSS! voter to a PosNo voter … and then the more I supported the PosNo’s position and saw how much they want to preserve and protect (which I do), prevent rampant development (which I do as well), save our precious farmers (love buying local!) and prevent runaway tax increases (yeah, […]

    by on August 14, 2017 - Comments

    The sheer size of Salt Spring is its “achilles heel” in any plan to incorporate and grow as a municipality. Large size means a large road network, which means high annual road costs, which means much higher taxes for all residents if Salt Spring incorporated as a municipality. In short, we simply do not have […]
