Tim Peterson

Island Trustee

I have nothing new to report on since our last local meeting in July. I'm just getting home from a week at the Union of BC Municipalities conference, which was packed with informative seminars, networking opportunities, and meetings with Provincial staff and Ministers. Islands Trust held meetings with Municipal Affairs Minister Kang, and Transport Minister Flemming, both focused on requests to meet on a regular basis, and both well recieved. ADM Kevin Richter at MOTI remembered me from a few years back, and asked if the Tucker Bay road issue was still on its way to court (as far as I know, it is). I also bumped into Premier Eby not once, but twice, and the second time we had a short but good conversation about ensuring Islands Trust is included in future Provincial programs and funding initiatives where appropriate.

Next week is Trust Council on Pender, where we will be hearing from the Governance Committee on the progress of their work; a report on Bylaw enforcement from the Ombudsperson's office; the usual reports from committees; and we will be working on a vision statement.

Our next Lasqueti meeting is October 23, at 11am at the Health Centre. Please consider attending if you are able to. And, as always, feel free to contact your trustees with your questions, comments, or concerns.
