The District of Sooke has withdrawn from the Canada 150 Mosaic project.

Sooke Program for the Arts recommended on Monday that council not proceed with the program due to costs and other factors.

Canada 150 Mosaic is a national project that will see 150 communities create murals that represent their part of Canada. The program is part of next year’s national 150th anniversary celebration.

The original cost for the program was $10,000, but after further investigation SPA discovered the district would have other expenses, which could possibly double the costs.
