To Whom it May Concern

RE: Reference letter for Ted Smith

From September 1997 to June 2000 Ted Smith was the youth representative
on the Steering Committe of CRUNCH, an initiative of the Community Social
Planning Council of Greater Victoria.

CRUNCH, a process for achieving effective community solutions for downtown
Victoria, set out to develop the capacity of the community to work together
more effectively. It brought together many diverse interests in Victoria’s
downtown, including social agencies, business associations, local government,
the street community, youth and churches. CRUNCH developed principles to
enhance a healthy, vibrant and sustainable Downtown Victoria, and these
principles continue to have significant impact in the relations and
initiatives across BC’s Capital Region.

Ted Smith was a fully functioning Steering Committee member who could
be counted on to follow through on his committments. These included
expressing the concerns and opinions of youth in clear and constructive
ways, keeping channels of communication open between the Steering
Committee and youth, and occassionally being the public spokesperson
for CRUNCH to the media, to government and in public forums. The
Steering Committee appreciated his collaborative approach to issues
and his thoughtful and intelligent perspectives.

We have valued Ted’s contribution to this community.
