Mine is a typical Island story: property acquisition, clearing and environmental mayhem. The Trailer, early retirement (SFU Physics), construction of The Cabin (2014-16), still a part-time resident with family living at home. My primary community involvement has been through figurative and pop art (two small-group shows and five open shows at the Ag Hall; www.davidboal.ca and some broom-clearing on Henderson Hill. Having a lab background, I’ve enjoyed learning the operation of the treatment plant while serving on the VPID water meter committee. If elected trustee, my interest would lie on the technical side: water and waste management, aquifer protection, soil inventories, provincially-mandated changes to the building code.
