My name is Scott Colbourne and I have put my name forward to serve as Trustee for the Gabriola Local Trust Area — Mudge, DeCourcy and Gabriola — on the Islands Trust.

I am honoured to call myself a visitor on these traditional territories of the Snuneymuxw People. I have lived here for a comparatively short time, but over those years I have become deeply involved in this place and passionately committed to these communities. In applying to all of you for this job, I am making these commitments:

  • To be straightforward and fair, and to communicate clearly and respectfully with all members of our communities.
  • To value transparency and openness over secrecy and closed-doors.
  • To recognize that environment and community are connected — you can’t have one without the other — and that responding to climate change calls for science-informed decision making.
  • To work collaboratively for these islands and their long-term health and vibrancy, in partnership with all levels of government.

Platform Priorities:

  1. Improve the availability of affordable, accessible, appropriate housing using land-use planning tools shaped by these communities and former Trustees.
  2. Continue to build community-to-community relationships with Snuneymuxw First Nation, and a strong focus on working collaboratively with the Regional District and Province.
  3. Ensure that when we say preserve and protect, we’re backing it up with science-informed tools for stewardship and reducing our ecological footprint.
  4. Create two-way conversations with people on Mudge, Decourcy and Gabriola so they see their priorities reflected in our community plans, by-laws and Islands Trust decision-making.
