Water Supply is Not a New Issue for Sechelt

At the Inter-Government Water Summit on Jan. 16, 2023, Steven Feschuk reminded us that there is a long history to the Sechelt water supply which far pre-dates all of our local governments. In the late 19th century when the shíshálh people were resettled adjacent to the Catholic Church at Trail Bay, water supply was the first issue identified because they knew it was a problem in that location.

Thank you to the Gibsons Museum and Archives for digging out this account.
