Comments about Lasqueti on TV
Whatever we may think of the potential negative impacts from TV coverage, today I got a message (via the website) that reveals at least one tangible, positive outcome - increased awareness that alternatives exist. Thought I should share this with the community:
Hello, my name is Eileen and I just saw a tv special on your island. I have to say it was one of the most inspirational things I have seen in a long time. The people that live there off the power and resources of the island amaze me. I think it is wonderful that you have found such a beautiful spot to enjoy the true wonders of the world in their natural state. I am not one that could cope with such a lifestyle, but I admire those that can. I would love to be able to visit the island, but not sure how or if there are visitor type locations that I could stay. Do you offer accommodations for people that would like to experience the wonde of your world? I would love to be able to show my children that there is more to life than the conveiniences of modern life. It scares me that they could possibly grow up not appreciating the enjoyment of life without tv, computers and cell phones.
Thanks so much in advance. Eileen Cruz.
