All Candidates Meeting October 19, 2016 from 7 – 9 pm. Union Bay Community Hall.

Published today in the Comox Valley Echo

As a land owner in Union Bay I appreciated the Echo’s coverage on the by-election. Before I can cast an informed vote the Facilitator’s Report must be released to the public. I attended meetings last spring where the developer made numerous accusations against the trustees. The developer went on to complain to the provincial government this resulted in a facilitator becoming involved in subsequent negotiations between UBID and the developer KIP regarding water treatment infrastructure. The result was a Memorandum of Understanding which the developer has thus far refused to sign. Three aggrieved trustees resigned in protest late July. Many accusations made from both sides.

Our community is frozen without governance. We are divided, deprived of accurate information about what has transpired and a vote impending. The government must release the Facilitator’s Report before the election. Otherwise the October 22 election could be contested until such time as the report is made public. I can not vote with a blindfold on.
