After receiving 70+ requests from you to do so, as your Regional Director, I have secured a meeting with Darshan Sihota, President of Island Timberlands for January 23rd in Nanaimo.

Now I want to hear from you.

What message do you want me to take from you to that meeting? I represent you, residents and landowners of Cortes. I have booked the Gorge Hall for Tuesday the 17th at 7 pm to hear from you. Come to this public meeting and tell me what you would like to have conveyed. Bring any written material with you that I can take for submission. ALL perspectives welcome. I will not be asking for consensus and fully expect a range of opinions. They can all be spoken and shared, and I will do my best to convey them all to Darshan Sihota the following week.

I am calling this meeting the first in the 'Speak-Easy' series where we come together as a community to discuss topical issues in a respectful space that welcomes all.

I strongly encourage participation in person, even if only to listen, as I am sure there is something you will learn from someone else there. However, if you cannot attend in person, please send me any written submissions to or call me at 250-935-0320.

In gratitude,
Noba Anderson
