Students from Janet Langston’s Grade 3 and 4 class at Margaret Jenkins elementary celebrate the school’s efforts to remove invasive species from Trafalgar Park (below King George Terrace). The park was covered in gorse and blackberry and wild flowers and roses are now thriving. (Travis Paterson/News Staff)

Margaret Jenkins students 2.5 years into restoration

 

The reclamation of Trafalgar Park continues but to anyone who has visited in the past three years, the removal of invasive species has revealed a landscape unseen for decades.

And the work has been done by a pair of Margarets.

Well known Uplands Park advocate and volunteer Margaret Lidkea helped lead a program for nearby Margaret Jenkins elementary school students. Lidkea provides the know-how and the students provide the muscle.

I asked the Saanich Municipal 2018 candidates for Mayor and Councilors these two questions.  Following the questions are their responses. Only the candidates listed here responded. 

 

"I have two election questions for each of you that concern me.  Note that I may publish your responses including no responses.
1 - Have you located a property to put forward for government funding for homeless people and if not do you intend to do so?
2 - What action will you take to synchronize traffic lights?"
