Bowen Island/Gulf Islands - help please?

RE: Bowen Island/Gulf Islands - help please?
Very interesting Skook, as always. At the risk of lighting the blue touch paper on the firecracker with my intended future neighbours, and to quote the Irish poet, "I have seen them at the break of day" - and I do wonder why quite so many people *have* to commute by car. I get it that the island is not that small, that you pay for leaving a car in Horseshoe Bay (and not just financially: crime can be a problem) and also that the bus service on the island can hardly be described as frequent. But all that aside, it is 5x more expensive to take a car than to go on foot. I think this speaks to the Council's plans for Snug Cove and to expand parking options. Right now, the mornings are something of a nightmare...

this summer we will rent on the far side of the island (and I'll buy you that Drambuie someplace :-)) so I'll get my taste of what it's like to commute about, etc...
