  • Wake Up Call for the Sunshine Coast

    Forest fires, water restrictions, air advisories. This summer is becoming a wake up call for the Sunshine Coast. Living in this beautiful place with such clean air, water and lovely rainforest and coastline is something you can certainly get used to and take for granted. The drought and recent Sechelt Old Mine Fire have put in all back into perspective.
