Island Tides is taking a break from publishing a new pdf 'newspaper' edition every second week.

Sorry about not curating your news. We do know it's great to have a good read assembled for you. The sort of stuff you wouldn't usually find put together (or find presented at all). Meantime, browse our back issues. There's tons to read and beautiful photos to enjoy.

On Island Tides pages connections arose; as if by magic. Our aim — by putting 'found objects' of news and pictures together — is to create a side-by-side spread which will allow you to gain insights to help you think outside the box. Intensified serendipity.

We can't thank our contributors enough for sending important news and ideas and glorious images along all these years. People often talk about our 'team', What it really is—as Jim Campbell once said of doing the Saturna Lamb BBQ— is 'inspired ad hockery'— by dozens of passionate west coasters. It's what we do on the coast: we pitch in, we have our say, we know stuff, we can think about stuff, we can express it, and we help each other.

During our break, check back to see what might be here. Our advertisers—and their website links—are on this page.

If you are interested in a specific topic, Type it into the search bar, at the bottom of this homepage, make sure it's set to search www.islandtides.com (not the whole web). You'll be amazed what you find. You could search more conventionally from our 'Back Issues and Reprints' section, back as far as 2003. Everything before that (and after) can also be found in the Provincial Archive.

Also keep in touch. And ask to get yourself on our email reminder list so we can tell you what's up. Christa hopes to post some new stuff on her badly neglected blog (link to left) and will keep you updated on the progress of her book, Electing Elizabeth: how a westcoast community elected the first Green in North America.

PS: September is Salt Spring's referendum about forming a municipality. Please get to know the issues before voting.

Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened. — Winston Churchill
