For you Facebook members, I have formed a group to petition Facebook to form a Gulf Islands Network.  Similar requests are in the works for Vancouver Island, Victoria, and the Sunshine Coast.  Right now Vancouver is the only Network available for this region. The more people that ‘suggest’ a new Network, the better chances we have.

Follow the link to the group, then ‘suggest’ a  Gulf Islands, BC Network.  Instructions on how to do that are on the group’s home page here.
