Regular place/time: at the Community Hall on Dec. 3, 1:15 pm

We will be having our AGM as well and proceed to a regular meeting once we complete our formalities. Please let me know if you’d like to get more involved ! (email)

I’ll probably skip the Zoom simulcast as it hasn’t been attended but drop me a note if you’d like one setup.

Bus to All Candidates Meeting

September 23, 2022

Lightning Taxi and MAP are happy to provide eBus transportation for Sept. 24th all candidates meeting at the school.

MAP sponsored a information meeting and discussion/debate to help inform the community about the SGI Transportation Commission proposal that may be going to referendum this fall. Many thanks to our guest speaker Fay Weller from Gabriola as well as our local moderator/speakers (Ben McConchie, Peter Pare, Rob Fawcett) for helping us understand some of the issues involved.

AGM 2021

November 7, 2021

We held our AGM for 2021 on Saturday Nov.6 3:00 pm at the Community Hall with Zoom simulcast. Thanks to everyone who made it out or connected. Our new board is:

  • Peter Easthope 
  • Dave Hargreaves
  • Barry Mathias
  • Peter Pare
  • Niall Parker

We’ll be having our AGM at the Community Hall (upstairs) following the Winter Market cleanup (2:30 or so). Anyone interested in a position on our board please let me know (chair@movingaroundpender.ca).

There will be a short regular meeting following the AGM to catch up on current projects.

MAP has recently received the report we commissioned to help design the multi-use trail from the ball park to the school. This project will provide a valuable alternative route for students and others but is still at very early development, we welcome all input !


Pender Earth and MAP collaborated with the Galiano Conservancy Society to do a transportation footprint for the islands. Data from this survey will be used to advocate for public and active transportation options on Pender.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the survey and congratulations to Larry C. who won our draw prize of $100 TruValue card ! Stay tuned for next year when we will check in again.

Interested in electric vehicles ? Checkout this !

Lots of interesting discussion both online and raised at our Aug. 29 event at the hall. Comments in full

We have decided that it is impractical to run the community bus this year, given the requirements for physical distancing to minimize CoVID transmission as well as limited funds and drivers. We shall revisit the idea in the future, in the meantime if anyone is interested in charters please contact us as usual via charters@penderbus.org
