…and a soft launch for the Go Gertie Campaign. You can see (and hear) the bus drivers song here (thanks to Pandit Tejomaya for creating the video).
The vote for Gertie referendum is planned for February 2016. Please go to our new Referendum page for details about the governance, budget, and proposed service.

These changes will go into effect this Friday and Saturday (July 24th and 25th). Let us know how the timing works for you – we’re still figuring this out and we need your input.
GERTIE will be heading to the meeting tonight – she will leave the village at 6:20, Tashtego at 6:25, Silva Bay 6:45, arriving at the Community Hall at 7:00.
The meeting is to discuss fire safety, emergency preparedness, and to share ideas and plans for how we can cope and support each other through the drought. Fire chief Rick Jackson and members of Gabriola Emergency Support Services will be on hand.
Thanks to those who pulled the meeting together. Please help spread the word as this is a last-minute effort.
