Talk the talk, paddle the paddle

With all the news about Grace Islet these days, it's important to notice the good news too surrounding this little island in Ganges Harbour of SaltSpring Island. While construction of a private home over the First Nations burial sites continues, there is at least some good news. Several times, there have been peaceful demonstrations on the water around Grace Island, with people in kayaks and canoes and other small boats.
I've just learned that Island Escapades, a kayak rental business right at the water's edge in Ganges, has been loaning the use of its boats for these orderly and non-violent demonstrations. Kudos for being a conscientious local business!
