What can Cortes, Quadra and other northern island communities learn about governance, ecology, and protecting rural culture from the Island Trust model with Sobhana. This Friday on Folk U Radio 1 to 3 p.m. at 89.5 FM or livestream at

The Island Trust is a unique federation of local governments working together to preserve and protect over 450 islands and surrounding waters in the Salish Sea. This unique approach of regional governance developed as small island communities faced growing development pressures and under-representation in other regional governance systems. Learn more about this governmental model, its history, uses, future, and what lessons northern Salish Sea islands can learn from their southern neighbours.

Regional Director Noba Anderson will be available during the last part of the show to answer questions if she can about our own history of governance in the northern Salish Island and how what we learn might apply more locally.

Email your questions in advance of the show to or call in live on Friday from 1 to 3 p.m. at 250-935-0200.

NEW: Folk U Radio now repeats on Mondays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. or you can find repeats anytime at
