telephones out at south end today

I retrieved a message this morning from Telus saying that they would be cutting and repairing the main line and telephone service to the south end of Lasqueti today. The message said it would be out from about 11 till about 2. The cut must be north of Gline & Fletcher Roads, because our telephone is out, too.

A new season is freshly upon us and a great time to do some preventative maintenance around the home and for your engines. A little now can avoid a lot of pain in the future.

Woodstoves - Sweep chimney, clean ash box and change batteries in fire alarms.

Generators - Fuel conditioners to clean out any residues and improve efficiency.  Change the oil and filters.

Looking for a woodstove

I am looking for a small, safe airtight woodstove.  Enough to heat 300 sq ft.  I am currently using a home made stove but it is a bit less efficient than I need it too be.  If you have one or have any leads please let me know.  8818 Cheers  Jess

A message regarding the trespass issue at Mount Trematon Nature Reserve


The Islands Trust Fund would like to take an opportunity to clarify a few things regarding the trespass issue at Mount Trematon Nature Reserve.

Mt. Trematon, Lake Trematon & Road Access

With respect to the question of road access through the Mt. Trematon Reserve, the B.C. Government road mapping layer (as shown on the map below) indicates that at least at one point it was believed that there was a road connecting Lake Road to Weldon Road. This data is often quite out of date, but is worth noting.

Having said that, no activity should have been performed without permission of either (and ideally both) the Island Trust Fund and the Ministry of Transportation.

my view of Mt. Trematon Nature Reserve situation, different from Laurence's

I have a very different view of the alleged witch hunt that Laurence writes about, where some Lasqueti people are thought to be unfair to a person who loves his part of Lasqueti.
