We are individuals in the community coming together: residents, businesses, youths, employees and retirees. We are unaffiliated with any political party or lobby group. We are individuals who care about our community and our island's culture, health and wellbeing.
We are the grassroots of this community, people who raise families here, breed livestock, grow food and operate retail stores or create artisan wares.
Who's behind this group?
People like Pender Island’s George Leroux! or Jamie Harris, Salt Spring,
Allen Achilles, Mayne Island,
Ron Spencer, Salt Spring Island Contractors’ Association,
Mary Beth Rondeau, North Pender Island,
Mairead Boland, Saturna Island
Other Gulf Islanders have launched grassroots groups, like Stop the Islands Trusts, part of this growing opposition.
We are all aligned in calling for appropriate public consultation, and a new, better plan that balances environmental protection and works with Indigenous communities, while expanding our fresh water supply & affordable housing options without harming our local economy or food sources.
