Did you stay at the Tin Wis in Tofino? If so are the rooms still clean and well looked after? Did you see in the Longhouse/Meeting facility? I had heard they had augmented the Longhouse. I had stayed there once when everywhere else was full and was quite pleased.
Maybe someone knows, but I was told that there was going to be pullout and commemoration/memorial built at the location of the Peace Camp, that was the main base for the Clayoquot Sound protests. It was along Highway 4 not far from the Kennedy River Bridge where everyone was arrested. I remember stopping at the camp on the way to Tofino one summer before the mass arrests took place. I haven't heard anything about this and can't see any information online about it. I think the person who told me, perhaps misheard someone expressing a wish.
I was at Tin Wis in Feb 2010, and they were in the process of updating their guest rooms and renovating the restaurant.
- I will be there again in October, and I'll see what's new.
The Tla-o-qui-Aht 1st Nation band office is also on that TinWis property.
Regarding the black-hole area where the 1993 protests were, I haven't seen or heard anything about a commemoration. I track the Tofino local news regularly, and I've never heard of this initiative.
I dropped by for a short visit at the Tin-Wis a few days ago. There are a few guys that are working on it, but it doesn't seem like there has been any changes to the restaurant so far, since the last time I was there (Summer 2008).
As for the guestrooms, I do not know, because I wasn't a guest there on my trip.
