Season's Greetings and Merry Recycling!


I wish everyone a healthy, green and prosperous new year!


For those who live in the south island's CRD, here are my top 5 recycling FAQs for this festive season.

It can't go into the Blue Box and there is lots of it - like plastic bags of every size and shape. These products are full of nasty chemicals and often end up polluting our environment ...and they don't need to!

Will you help?

Hi Everybody,

Check out this video about the Mustard Seed and my food drive, made by local film-maker Greg Horne.

From Dec 1st to the 17th my community office is doing double-duty as a Saanich drop-off depot for the Mustard Seed Food Bank.

Everyone who makes a donation will have a chance to win two tickets to the Speech from the Throne at the Legislature and lunch for two at the Legislative Restaurant … with me!

We’ll be open for extended hours to receive your donations: Monday-Thursday, from 8 am – 6 pm.

The office is located at 4085 Quadra St.

Thanks, Lana.
