Balancing airport uses

I had an especially great weekend earlier in August. On August 8 and 9, I participated in my all-electric Tesla Roadster, along with several other electric vehicles, in the Rod Run and Show N Shine. What a great event for Sechelt! On August 10, Councillor Randy Joe of the Sechelt Indian Band and I were ... Read More »
