Alice Finall, Mayor of North Saanich; Chief Vern Jacks, Tseycum First Nation; Gary Holman, MLA, Saanich North and the Islands and Greg Ramsay, Ramsay Machine Works Ltd. stand at North Saanich’s time capsule - built by Ramsay Machine Works - on display at the Mary Winspear Centre. Holman is presenting Jacks with his B.C. legislature presentation on the government’s purchase of Grace Islet. That move allows First Nations burial cairns contained on the island to be protected from development. The presentation, with a DVD and hard paper copy, were placed in the time capsule, which is to be opened in 2065.
