Great Turnout!

Surveying today at the Salt Spring Saturday Market was a great success. Over a hundred of you dropped by to take our survey. Thank you! We appreciate your feedback and will be compiling it all to help strengthen our case for a new CRTC licence.

We also plan to visit our Gulf Islands neighbors and communities nearby to get their feedback too. So, more surveying to come… If anyone missed us today who would like to submit a survey, email us at contactus@gicrs.ca and we’ll get in touch. Every bit helps.

Listener Interest Surveys

Some of us will be conducting surveys at the Saturday Market on October 24. Please drop by to say “Hi!” and if you haven’t filled out a survey yet, this is a great opportunity for you to voice your preferences and get involved! See you there.

Saturday Meeting at Library

Thanks to all of you who took the time to join us and filled out surveys.  This meeting was a great start, and we look forward to future gatherings.
