Sooke district council has an alternative for folks who care about what’s happening in the community and have had enough of binge-watching old television series or movies.
Starting June 24, the district will make streaming videos of council meetings available on the YouTube channel.
Now, from the comfort of your home, you’ll be able to pop a soda, make some buttered popcorn and sit back to watch discussions of zoning amendments, bylaw considerations, and a host of other issues and concerns to the community.
The district has live streamed all Council proceedings since 2016, but the use of the YouTube streaming service will make that process more streamlined and efficient.
YouTube is the No. 1 live streaming video platform worldwide and brings an improved user experience for viewers. The interface is intuitive and familiar to many, videos will be of higher quality, and additional functionality such as closed captioning and improved analytic abilities are all benefits of the move to YouTube.
Council meetings are held on the second and fourth Monday of every month.
