Meet Linda Leitch
Linda Leitch has never lived in the city. In fact, even Haida Gwaii’s towns, like Masset, seem big compared to what Linda is used to. She has always lived in rural areas and believes that this lifestyle has helped to make her what she is today. “Small communities teach you about independence and being inventive” says Linda, “about strong morals and ethics, how to help one another.” This spirit, she notes, is definitely exemplified on a daily basis here on Haida Gwaii. Linda regularly sees people pitching in to help one another as well as to care for the land and the environment. “We gain support from our close community,” Linda declares.
Linda, who has also lived in Ontario in the past, fell in love with island life. She has a deep appreciation for its rugged, natural beauty. She volunteers frequently to do marine debris clean-up in Naikoon Provincial Park in an effort to help keep Haida Gwaii’s natural areas beautiful and healthy for upcoming generations to continue enjoying. Linda spends a lot of time outdoors, whether it is volunteering in the park, going for hikes, walking her dogs or going beach-combing. A sailing enthusiast, she naturally spends a lot of time on the water, both for work and for fun. When tourist season wraps up for the winter, Linda can be found on her sailboat for up to two months at a time, cruising BC’s northern coast and enjoying the amazing sights. She has even written stories about sailing which have been published in Pacific Yachting magazine.
Linda feels grateful to be able to have a business here in Haida Gwaii. Not only does it provide a means for her to live in this beautiful place, it also provides visitors with the opportunity to get to know Haida Gwaii. Linda has noticed an increase in recent years in people who are looking for eco-tourism based holidays, and she is happy to show her guests what makes Haida Gwaii such a mystical place.
Relaxing. Family-Oriented. Beautiful.
