“True” Tofino News
I have second thoughts about linking to these guys at all: anonymous complainers who don’t see much good around here (and can’t get it around their heads that boulders are put on bike path entrances to keep cars off – i.e. to protect bikers!) But maybe we can encourage them to actually stop hiding and stand up for what they say; right now this site is a bit of an embarassment to any idea of “community”.  Or to just delete the site.

(Truer) Tofino News
This one is definitely way “truer” than the previous one – Ralph Tieleman keeps us posted on political issues that affect us here in town, especially relating to council briefs and decisions.
