One Coast government



One community government is needed for the people of the Sunshine Coast.

article continues below

It’s time to abolish the obsolete Sunshine Coast Regional District and replace it with a new, effective, united administrative governing council consisting of Egmont/Pender Harbour, Halfmoon Bay, Roberts Creek, Elphinstone, West Howe Sound and five elected Sechelt councillors. People would also vote for a mayor. The new 11-person democratic Sunshine Coast council and the Town of Gibsons would work together.

We can’t continue suffering a water shortage. Unity is needed. The Minister of Municipal Affairs has the power to change the obsolete regional district governing system to a democratic working community.

What do you think?
