Local Voices – On the Water

June 5, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Bounded by Burrard Inlet, Howe Sound, and the Capilano River, West Vancouver is almost an island. Join us for Local Voices “On the Water”  to hear how three men sailed a dugout canoe from West Vancouver to Hawai’i, and other stories from our shores.

Speakers: Cathy Tocher & Bob Aylesworth — the voyage of the Orenda,  Norah Corbet — building a sailboat at Hollyburn Sailing Club and Pauline Le Bel — a community sets out to save Howe Sound.


Local Voices celebrates our community – as it was and as it is – in the words of the people who live here. Our neighbours share their work, studies, creative expression and community participation through dialogue, readings and performance. Local Voices is organized in partnership with the West Vancouver Memorial Library.
