Assorted items….

To soften the journey (a bit)… Corporate blue seat padding has belatedly appeared on the new metal seating on the Mayne Queen.

Visioning the schedule…. In early July Southern Gulf Island ferry advisory committee representatives will meet with Saltspring Island reps to discuss ideas about scheduling for both route 9 (that’s the mainland) and route 5. The SSIFAC has been working on some possible schedules and this is the other islands’ first chance to see what they've achieved and add their input.

Car Stop - letter - Hancock - Smyth - June 11, 2011

I am following up our previous conversations regarding the Car Stop Program. Although you have kindly forwarded our application to the CRD approvals process, I believe you previously asked that I provide all information related to the consultation activities the Saturna Island Property Owners Association (SIPOA), the Saturna Community Club (SCC) and Saturna Lions have undertaken with respect to the proposed Car Stop Program for Saturna.
