Thank you!

Good morning everyone!

I'm posting this morning to thank everyone who came out to this event on March 17th to raise money for the Lasqueti Cemetary additions/improvements. It seems like the majority of those who are on the island at the moment came out to support this cause. Way to go Kathy Schultz for having a vision and making it happen!

Local Trust Committee Special Meeting Canceled

Due to my incapacitating back spasms, and that our electronic meeting bylaw states that no more than one member of the LTC can participate via phone, the Special Meeting for Monday, March 12 has been canceled, and will be rescheduled. We will announce the new meeting as soon as we have the date.

Looking for my Father

Good Day to all who get the chance to read this,

My name is Sarah-Louise Barker. I am looking for my father who left my life when I was 16 years old. His name is Michael Robin Barker. He spent some time in Mexico and was going by the name Miguel while there.

During the time he was gone, i had lost touch with my grandfather William Barker until recently when I surprised him with a visit during thanksgiving.

My grandfather told me that he had found my father, and he was living on Lasqueti Island. He said that my father was taking care of homes in the off season when people didn't live on the island. Grandpa actually called him but my father hung up on him.

Sadly my grandfather is not well enough to make the trip himself up there to find my father. I on the other hand really want to come visit and see what the island is like. I really hope to find my father while on vacation.

I wanted to see if I could find any help on finding him.

My info:

Sarah-Louise Barker

I am 36 years old and my bday is april 14th

Blue eyes and brown hair, i was born in an army hospital in North Carolina while my father was in the army. My mother is Mary-Lou. We lived on Sherman street in Westfield Massachusetts until my parents separated when I was 4.

Info about my dad:

Michael Robin Barker

He would be 65 this year and his birthday is in May. He is the youngest of 3 boys born from June and William Barker. He used to sport dark hair with a mustache and plays the guitar and piano. He would make up the best stories to help me when I would have anxiety as a kid.

I have a hole in my heart, in my life, and I just need to know what happened.

If you have any information or contact with him,

Local Trust Committee Special Meeting

We will be holding a Special Meeting on Monday, March 12, to consider amendments to the proposed Land Use Bylaw No. 95, intended to address minimum lot size in the Subdivision Regulations. While we gave first reading to this bylaw at our meeting of February 19, we have since rescinded that first reading, due to some proposals that would make further changes.
