Living Off The Grid On Lasqueti Island

On lasqueti.ca they describe the island as a place where residents live "a self-sufficient lifestyle reminiscent of an earlier century. Lasqueti ís the place where the conversation is more likely about solar panels or composting toilets than about microwaves or toasters -- foreign objects for most of the 400 residents. Nobody can work a five-day week away from home because it takes three days work just to survive -- to cut firewood, to maintain power, water, and waste systems, to work in your garden to produce your food."

Also, "Statistics Canada says is the most highly educated community in British Columbia."
