Barge ramp problem

Here's what I've learned so far:

After a complaint to the Trust about retail sales/vending of fuel at the ramp, arrangements have been made for the vending to take place elsewhere, and delivery to be made at the ramp, just like happens with most things delivered to Lasqueti via the barge ramp.

Local Trust meeting canceled

The Lasqueti Local Trust Committee meeting scheduled for Monday, November 27 has been cancelled. A new date will be announced as soon as it is set.

Winter Wednesday Social Nov.1st

November is upon us, and that means that the Winter Wednesday Social will be happening again. If you haven't been, the Social is a weekly gathering at the Community Hall for a full dinner by donation (no one turned away for lack of funds), with conversion, ping-pong, cards and board games as you wish.

Salt Spring vote

For those who are still wondering, the vote on incorporation on Salt Spring island this past weekend maintained the status quo by a large margin. The voter turnout was high, around 70%, and the NO vote carried the day, with around 60%. The implications for the Islands Trust mainly relate to how better serve Salt Spring going forward, in order to avoid further incorporation votes.
