What should we be allowed to do…

There is no shortage of opinion among cottage owners about what we should be allowed to do and why, during the ongoing State of Emergency. 

However, the Band and the Medical Officer of Health have both made it clear that they do not want us coming to our cottages. This is not about us but rather about keeping the Band and surrounding communities safe and helping them cope better with this pandemic given the limited resources at their disposal. Please stay home. When the appropriate authorities remove the restrictions we will let you know.

In the Meantime…

In the meantime there are many unanswered questions for which SCOI is trying to get answers.  However with the Band offices closed, and Council coping with a lot more than cottage issues, it  may take some time to get all our questions answered. As stated previously, it is also early days and too soon for even Band Council to consider a number of issues that cottage owners have raised.

Thank you for your patience and support!

We thank you for your patience and for the many messages of support, which we really appreciate! (We have chosen not to publish these so as not to appear self-congratulatory.)

Many of you are aware that we have also chosen not to publish comments that we think are unhelpful or inappropriate. We are gleaning the important issues from these messages and reporting on them as we have information to share.
