Welcome to The Gumboot...
... Quadra Island's interactive community website. Send us your stuff!
Frontpage articles (Island News & Views) are about ideas and events of interest to the whole community. No infomercials please! If your article is just one or two measly sentences with talk of money, guess what? It's an ad. Put it where it belongs!
Ads, events and commercial announcements go in our free Classifieds section. We welcome listings from Cortes and Read Islands, and Campbell River too, as long as they're relevant to islanders.
(The Cortes Tideline accepts Cortes-content-only, but the good news is, folks from Cortes read The Gumboot too!)
Use the Event Calendar to post important dates to islanders of all stripes.
