The Islands Trust –

Governing the Southern Gulf Islands

of British Columbia

The Islands Trust is a layer of government imposed in 1974 on the British Columbia Southern Gulf Islands, an archipelago that is home to 25,000 people.  The Trust  was intended to prevent the spreading of the  Pender Island “Magic Lake Estates” type of subdivisions in the archipelago which was ceded to become the Republic of the Trust, alias the “Trust Area”.  The Trust    has since evolved into an authoritarian government entity, an extra layer of government the islanders have been made to endure ever since,  to the dismay of many.

In this room  of the Alcy Home you will find snapshots of what happens when democracy is sidetracked to yield to a particular group, even if one with a cause that is, or appears being, noble.

Booth Canal is in need of resoration, protection and preservation.
