Starting in the logging industry in 1946, leading to a successful concrete and aggregate division now operated by Butler Concrete & Aggregate, Butler Brothers Supplies Ltd. continues on the south island as a property development company, industrial property rental, with locations on Keating Cross Road, Sooke Road, West Coast Road and now a robust 60 slip marina, offering monthly and annual moorage.
History - The Butler Brothers Family
A part of the rich heritage of the Saanich Peninsula and continuing to play a key role in the development of Vancouver Island Communities.
Although Butler Brothers Supplies Ltd. was incorporated in 1954, the Butler family has been a part of the History of the Saanich Peninsula since Captain George Stephen Butler began farming there in 1868.
The 'Butler Brothers' of the company name were Claude, Wally, Tom, and Eric, all grandchildren of the Captain. Claude Butler, who was president of the company for quite a few years, passed away in 1986. Wally, the second brother, passed away in 1992. The company is now under the leadership of the Captain's great-grandson, Brian Butler.
The brothers were doing business on the island before the Second World War when they were engaged in logging and the sale of gravel. In the late 1940s, they built a small store to handle the sale of a limited selection of building materials. Following this, in the early 1950s, they became involved in the manufacture and sale of ready-mix concrete.
Butler Concrete & Aggregate Ltd. is an aggregate and ready-mix company whose primary purpose is to provide a high quality of life by maximizing long-term profits.
We will be number one in our selected market area in product quality and customer service.
We will ensure that our employees, who are the major asset of the Company, are both challenged and satisfied.
We will act responsibly concerning the environment and the community's well-being.
We will do this while maintaining a commitment to ethical business behaviour.
Department of Mines gave us top marks for our reclamation project which was the first phase of the Keating X Road gravel pit, now known as Butler Crescent.
We have also won the Department of Mines Accident-Free Safety Award.
Butler Concrete & Aggregate Ltd. has a longstanding tradition of providing a wide range of building materials to lower Vancouver Island. The company first began in the 1930s, engaging in logging and the sale of gravel and expanding into the manufacture and sale of ready-mixed concrete in the 1950s.
Today, the company serves its customers with ready-mixed concrete and aggregate products all over ther Capital Region and Vancouver Island. There are three gravel pit locations in Central Saanich, Sooke and Duncan, providing everything from fill material to specialized sand and rock products.
The company has ready-mixed concrete batch plants in Central Saanich, Sooke and Victoria and, with one of the largest fleets of ready-mix trucks on the island, can supply ready-mix to any size of job site.
Butler Concrete & Aggregate Ltd., a recognized leader in the industry, continues to grow and meet the changing needs of its customers.
Butler Brothers have been serving the South Vancouver Island area with quality aggregate and ready-mix since the early 1940's.
BC’s First Private TV Station Celebrates 60 Years in Broadcasting
At 5pm on December 1, 1956 CHEK-TV, B.C.’s first privately owned television station and affiliate of the CBC network, hit the airwaves. Over the next six decades, the station’s identity, logo design and network affiliations changed numerous times, until in September of 2009, CHEK became North America’s first and only employee-owned television station.
In the last 60-years the evolution of CHEK has come full circle. Live television of the past gave way to film, videotape and satellite feeds, only to find its way back to the energy and spontaneity of ‘live’ news broadcasts. Throughout the station’s incredible history it has continued to produced popular local programs relevant to viewers on Vancouver Island. Most of the station-produced programs in the early days were primarily entertainment shows such as the TV House Party Show in 1956, the Ida Clarkson Show from 1962 to 1991 and Club 6 where local teens could come and try the latest dance moves every afternoon ‘live’ in the CHEK studio located on Epsom Drive in Victoria. From the days of CHEK-TV’s founding father Charlie White to the present-day employee-owners, CHEK has a rich legacy of producing local news, weather and sports as well as information programming including the current crop of productions like Cookin’ on The Coast hosted by Garrett Schack, The Wealthy Life with Sybil Verch, Trend with Amy McGeachy and of course the time-honoured CHEK Around with Gordie Tupper, to highlight just a few.
Over the past six decades, CHEK has grown to meet the ever-changing needs of advertisers and audiences. Gone are the days of live commercials, where the message was more important than the length. Today, CHEK’s award winning Creative Services department captures an advertiser’s message in a precise highly-crafted, 30 or 15 second spot that is often complimented by on-line advertising.
CHEK has been part of the fabric of the communities it serves since 1956, and continues to provide viewers with compelling and comprehensive news coverage from all across Vancouver Island seven days a week. Giving back has also been a major part of the station’s 60-year history. CHEK continues to dedicate its people, airtime and resources to countless events and causes.
Thank you for watching and supporting CHEK! Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Since 1988, we have provided comprehensive eye health and optical services to the community of Sooke and surrounding areas.
We are a team of doctors and certified staff that work together to provide you with a great experience in a caring environment. Whether it is expert eye care services, an annual eye exam, or choosing the perfect pair of lenses, our friendly and professional staff is always here to assist you.
Eye exams aren’t just for glasses and contacts. During your comprehensive eye exam, our doctors will not only assess your vision but also your ocular health using the latest technology. A routine eye exam can detect ocular diseases, like glaucoma, and diseases of the body, like diabetes and multiple sclerosis. Early detection is key when it comes to the eyes, as many eye conditions will go unnoticed until it’s too late. In general, it is recommended that kids have yearly eye exams starting at 6 months and adults have eye exams every 1-2 years depending on age, medical status, and eye conditions.

Shelter for all
We must not let them fall
Sooke Shelter Society is a grassroots Registered Charity working together to increase access to affordable housing for those with lower income, to prevent and end homelessness in Sooke, BC. Through advocacy, we raise awareness of the critical value of stable, affordable housing to people’s education, employment, health, and overall well-being.
Sooke Shelter Society offers shelter and temporary outdoor survival shelter gear for those experiencing homelessness in the Greater Sooke Area. Support is provided for people over 18 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in need of immediate basic necessities such as food, clothing, and outdoor living supplies and or have self-identified as engaging in substance use, are having challenges accessing housing or have mental health concerns.
We connect with our most vulnerable, approaching each person with compassion, empathy and understanding, treating all with dignity, respect, fairness and equality.
We care about our community and believe that safe, decent, affordable housing benefits the entire community – economically, socially, and environmentally.
As part of our community housing strategy, we need a rights-based national housing strategy that is also adequately funded and is developed in consultation with all levels of government to ensure that everyone has the right to secure, adequate and affordable housing.
