Open burning prohibition rescinded

The Coastal Fire Center has rescinded the open burning prohibition effective at noon Friday, September 25th. This means that campfires, category 2 fires and category three fires (with permit) are all allowed.

Moderate Fire Danger Rating

Our local fire danger rating has been lowered to moderate, effective Tuesday September 15th. The 1:00pm shutdown of high risk activities will be rescinded starting Thursday September 17th. When at a moderate fire danger rating, and after the 1:00 shutdown has been rescinded, a one hour fire watch is required after completing high risk activities.

OCP Review process and bylaw complaints/enforcement

Lasqueti's planner Heather Kauer sent the trustees some information that I think might be helpful in distinguishing our OCP review from issues around bylaw compliance and enforcement. Here is what she sent us:

I've fallen behind in posting these. I have no idea if nobody reads them, somebody reads them, or everybody reads them.  There is some interesting and useful information in them.

PVC

I'm looking for 40 feet of 1+1/2" (40mm) white PVC pipe. Anyone have some laying around before I go off island? timpeterson24 [at] yahoo [dot] com or 250-607-7094

 

Ferry Committee Report to LCA AGM August 2020

LCA Ferry Committee Report 2020

Submitted for the AGM, August 22, 2020.

 

During the past year, the Ferry Committee has been busy.

Moderate Fire Danger Rating

With the recent downpour our fire danger rating has been lowered to moderate. Morning shift (1:00pm shutdown of high risk activities) will continue until at least Saturday. If we remain at moderate until Saturday, early shift will be rescinded. 

I will keep the email list and Fire Safety page updated.

Be safe and fire smart.

applications for private docks in Scottie Bay

I do not know Scottie Bay well. My son, Isaac, has anchored his sailboat there this winter, and maybe for longer. I am trying to make a fair and reasonable decision, as one of the three trustees that make up the Lasqueti Trust Commiittee, on the future uses of Scottie Bay.
