The Saanich Peninsular

I will be covering the areas of the Saanich Peninsula, part of Greater Victoria

The whole area is divided into 4 parts, East, West, Central and North.  I will be covering just the East and West as they are closer to downtown. Central Saanich is a little more rural and at least 20 minutes drive from downtown. North Saanich is a little further again and takes you right to the Northern tip of the peninsular, this is where the Airport is and also where Swartz Bay Ferry terminal is.
So more about East and West below, with a mention of some of the Suburbs but not all.
