Thetis Island

What I find frustrating on the Gulf Islands is that the way the Islands Trust has set up all the meetings to be held middle of the week and middle of the day. This excludes anyone who has a job or is a part time resident. There is no attempt on finding the consensus of people who cannot make the meetings. The community should  be contacted by email on all proposed changes and new regulations so everyone has a chance to comment. Any and all votes for changes to governance issues should have the opportunity to vote in person or vote  by email.

At present a very small group of people and the Islands Trust staff  have control with the majority of landowners  excluded from the decision making process. Not very democratic!
