The local government of the Archipelago know as the Southern Gulf Islands of British Columbia is the Islands Trust. This is a unique type of government, insofar as it was imposed by the Government of British Columbia, as contracted to normal generis of local governments intitiated by and consented to by the people to be governed.
Proximity, size and, yes, the genesis of the Trust make it a good model for the study of Local Governance.
We at Alcyone find this model irrisistible to study and essential to expose for the well-being of our society, as well as for the wider purpose of making a contribution to the study of modern governance.
We are a product or our past contributions to public affairs and we are committed to stay proud in the future.
