Carpenter Skills Ingrained from 30 Years Building Experience

The pressure we've put on wild salmon has created serious management challenges, according to John Paul Fraser, Executive Director of the B.C. Salmon Farmers Association. Fraser is familiar with the subject of managing west coast salmon, "I worked for Hon. David Anderson in the mid-1990s when he was the Minister Responsible for Department of Fisheries and Oceans." Fraser notes Anderson was from Victoria and uniquely able to move the focus of Canadian fisheries management from east to west coast at a time when it was required to do so. 
      "I managed communications for the minister and that's when I got a sense of wild salmon as a symbol and a lifeline," says Fraser. "In those days the push for conservation was intense enough that Anderson had to institute sweeping closures and buybacks of salmon fishing licenses, even boats."

T'Sou-ke Nation is a community on the south-west corner of Vancouver Island, busy not only culturally but economically, since they achieved construction of the largest solar array in B.C.. Linda Bristol is an Elder, Arts Manager, and Cultural Advisor who was engaged from the beginning of a Comprehensive Community Planning process that began in the last decade. Out of this community engagement came the powering of the community with solar renewable energy. “The process was vision-oriented and we had a progressive-thinking group. One of the options was solar energy and it caught the imagination of the people creating the vision,” says Bristol. 
       Success of the T'Sou-ke solar energy project came from the T'Sou-ke CCP process, she explains, and unity was the key,              READ IT HERE
