As Juan de Fuca regional residents we share this in common:
We are gravely troubled by the staggering rate and volume of deforestation in our region. We believe that our forests are being grossly mismanaged, and that these lands which should represent our commons have been unjustly expropriated in the name of fast profit for industry shareholders, at the expense of ecological sustainability and what is literally the birthright ground for future generations.
Our vision is two-fold:
The District of Sooke is the local government body responsible for providing services for the residents of the municipality of Sooke.
A municipality is a corporation of the residents of its area and the governing body of a municipality is its Council. District of Sooke Council is composed of a Mayor and six (6) Councillors who hold office for a three (3) year term.
The citizens of the District of Sooke voted to become a municipality in 1999 and upon incorporation elected their first Mayor and Council.
The Sooke Bike Club is dedicated to building a friendly and organized local mountain bike community in Sooke. We do this by supporting and encouraging riders of all ages and abilities through fun events, mentorship and volunteer opportunities. The Sooke Bike Club assists land managers and owners in their efforts to include bike trail systems on their lands, and promotes Sooke's trails and opportunities to the global mountain biking community.
