“Have we found the floor, or is this just a hiccup in the overall downward trend? Only the future will tell. We are faced with another 4 per cent increase in April, 2015.”

District of Sechelt building, October 24, from 1pm to 3pm. The public can make presentations, provided they first contact the advisory committee chair
