Many people are not aware that non-profit credit counselling societies receive 70% or more of their funding from credit card companies, banks, and other creditors. Since they are primarily funded by creditors, it is their interest that they protect. While they are non-profit, they do charge monthly fees to the Debtor. It is essential to have someone on your side, who is working for you and your long term interests, while you go through this process. The decisions you make will have a long term impact on your life. At 4Pillars, our only focus is our clients.

History

Butler Brothers Supplies 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 Brothers Supplies Ltd., a recognized leader in the industry, continues to grow and meet the changing needs of its customers.

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 of 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.

Today, Butler Brothers Supplies Ltd. has three gravel pits in operation - Keating Cross Road, Sooke and Duncan - and sells ready-mix concrete from Keating Cross Road, Bay Street in Victoria and Sooke.

Butler Brothers Supplies Ltd. continues to grow to meet the needs of Island consumers and to carry on the tradition of quality, integrity and service to Vancouver Island communities.

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.

Eric Denne became a financial advisor so that he could help people live their best possible lives.

Interestingly, 15 years as an engineer prepared him well for this role.

What he loves about applying those skills as a financial advisor is the significant difference he makes – one client at a time – in people's lives.

Eric helps his clients think ahead to their goals, consider their challenges, and protect their family's lifestyles from catastrophic events. Financial stability allows choice.

  • Insurance (Life, Critial Illness, Disability)
  • Planning (Retirement, Education, Estate, Tax Optimination)

Outside of work, he is passionate about spending time with his young family and enjoying the great outdoors, from hiking, golfing, mountain biking, snowboarding, and scuba diving.

First Choice Cannabis Products is a medically focused licensed cannabis processor based in Sooke, British Columbia. Our online medical sales platform aims to become the First Choice for Canadian consumers seeking innovative products with rich cannabinoid and terpene profiles that will help to improve their daily health and wellness.

The company was founded by Bryan and Linda Mooney in 2019, in what was, at the time, a highly successful fish processing plant. With salmon stocks dwindling and an eye to the future, Bryan and Linda looked to use their 30 years of experience in food product processing to transition their business from one that processed fish to one that processes cannabis products. With tremendous perseverance and commitment to the process they were awarded a Health Canada Micro-Processing and Medical Sales license in late 2020.

Zoë Baldwin
Business Description

Practitioner Zoë Baldwin established Mountain Heights Healing in 2014 has practiced energy healing for over 20 years. She is certified as a practitioner in Sound Healing Therapy, Indian Head Massage and Crystal Therapy. She is a Reiki Master / Teacher and has trained in many aspects of Intuitive, Psychic and Mediumship practices. Zoë also teaches Reiki and Intuitive courses and workshops out of her healing space in Sooke, and Indian Head Massage through the International College of Energy Healing.

Zoë believes there are many ways of healing but it is in our own hands. No-one can heal us, we heal ourselves, with other's help, and she loves nothing more than helping others on their own personal healing journeys.

As an holistic practitioner, Zoë provides heart-centered treatments that heal mind, body and spirit. Every modality she uses is different, but each one consists of a deep state of peace and relaxation during the treatment and healing benefits during and afterwards. Whichever modality you choose Zoë will include an element of one, or more, of the others when needed, which enhances the healing benefit and provides an intuitively individualized treatment.

As a psychic and Medium, Zoë connects with each client personally. She does this energetically using divination tools such as Oracle Cards, Pendulums and Psychometry. She also uses mediumship to communicate with your loved ones in spirit, your spirit guides and her own spirit guide team. This results in guidance, affirmation and assurance.

She offers the following services (see her Facebook page for more information):

Treatments:

  • Crystal Healing Therapy
  • Energy Cleansing and Tune Up
  • Indian Head Massage
  • Reiki

Doctors Nicole Hewitt and Chris Hewitt
Business Description

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.

Call us to book an appointment today.

Sooke Eyecare is a proud partner of BC Doctors of Optometry.

Tim Ayres
Business Description
Sooke, BC, is located on the spectacular south-west coast of Vancouver Island at the entrance to the Strait of Juan De Fuca, and offers a diverse range of housing options for every budget. Whether you're a first-time buyer seeking an affordable townhouse or condominium, a family seeking a newer home with a genuine, real, non-postage-stamp yard for the kids to play in, an investor seeking a rental unit, or a wealthy individual who desires the finest in waterfront properties, Sooke real estate is for you!
With the introduction of our community sewer system in 2006, Sooke has been growing. New developments like Sunriver Estates View from Sooke to Washington's Olympic Peninsula and Mountains are home to affordable family housing in a beautiful, park-like setting, surrounded by majestic firs, creeks, and amenities. Older areas of Sooke have larger properties and land for sale, with solid, time-tested houses. Because much of Sooke slopes downward to the Sooke Basin from the Sooke hills, many properties have spectacular views over the Basin, Sooke Harbour, East Sooke, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and the Olympic Mountains.
Sooke's average real estate prices are much lower than Victoria and even other West Shore communities like Langford. Single family detached homes average $432,405 compared to $585,027 and $511,143 in Victoria and Langford, respectively. Based on Victoria Real Estate Board MLS® 6-month average June 2008.
The short commute of 45 minutes or less to major employment centres like Victoria and the Canadian Forces Base at Esquimalt make Sooke an ideal choice. Good bus service to and from Sooke makes it easy to be green and save money while still enjoying a Sooke lifestyle.
Tim is dedicated to providing the highest level of client satisfaction in each and every real estate transaction. Drawing upon award-winning real estate sales and marketing experience, years of customer service background, and the desire and motivation to achieve nothing but the best, he has a proven track record for results. Tim delivers this on a daily basis for his valued clients.
