Fire Safety; High Risk Activities

We are Currently at a High state of risk for Fire Hazard Rating and have been there for more than 3 days. Which means that high risk activities (such as running a power saw) must stop by 1pm and be followed by a 2 hours fire watch. Once the Hazard Rating has escalated to Extreme for 3 days we will have a full stop to such activities. This is likely to happen soon. 

Weekly Barge run reminder

On every second Tuesday I am running a freight service from Squitty Bay to French Creek. The barge will leave at 8 am arriving approximately 9:45. Loading will commence at 1:30 until 4 pm departure. The rate is $60. which allots you a 4x8+ space on deck, plus space on the upper deck for groceries. The spaces will be flexible allowing you to load longer goods. Also you can take over your well contained garbage, recyclables, etc. You come as a guest with your freight, one person per deck space or pay extra $30. each way. Groceries and smaller goods should be in totes, bring a tarp if your goods need protection from the weather. This run is weather permitting only and can run Wednesday if necessary. You will have until noon the following day to unload. I can lift items up to 500 lbs. Bring a handcart. Freight space is limited to 8 portions. I will carry up to eleven people. Please call to reserve. Dates are as follows:

Dump Truck on Lake Road hill

There's a dump truck, with no license plates, that has been left just off the side of the road at the top of the hill after you turn off Main Road onto Lake road.

It's been sitting there for well over two months. Could whoever owns it please move it off our property?

Here's a photo of the truck:

Comments on Guest cabins from Jessie McCooey

Growing up on Hornby Island where our community was around 1200 locals dwindled down to a small 400 to 500 people later on due to price of property, lack of rentals and lack of work. Hornby turned into a haven for the rich to buy property and only use it during summertime, not renting to the community during winter months.
