UBID needs competent/qualified Admin to avoid stupid mistakes by trustees – like suspending an elected trustee!

History of the video bylaw. https://allthingsunionbay.com/2017/12/18/union-bay-improvement-district-bylaw-263-meeting-procedures-audio-video-recording-of-meetings-now-bylaw-270/

This is the first video UBID recorded after changing their bylaw preventing me or anyone from recording the meetings. I wouldn’t mind except the incompetence is mind boggling. My audio of the meeting is 1:28:06 and UBID’s video is 2:03:44 – how is that possible?

This video is a perfect example of the problems we have with these so called representatives. UBID bought a Go Pro camera to video record their own meetings claiming they wanted to retain copyright. Well that was all bullshit too. Their own bylaw states the videos will be only recorded by UBID and posted on their website. Because they are clueless and never research anything, they look like fools because they are uploading to Youtube which you automatically give up any copyright to the video.

The discussion regarding FOI requests is very telling. No matter what they are told they still think their bylaws trump Provincial and Federal legislation. That’s what you voted for – individuals who are clueless and refuse to allow any new information into their tiny brains.

The video below should have been 1 hour and 28 minutes. The reason UBID’s is 2 hours and 3 minutes is because at the 1:23.55.07 mark someone inserted the segment that starts at 1:06.03.16 and inserted at that mark again at 1:41.36.12. You can see the video frame suddenly change.

Then we have the Nov. 2017 meeting where Trustee Kaljur’s motion and the discussion which took 17 minutes was mysteriously erased and the minutes of the meeting do not contain any of the discussion. Below are 2 pages of the Nov. 2017 minutes with no mention of the discussion.

Here is the motion and the missing discussion which the board passed and then refused to follow through with the admin contacting the province and obtaining a letter telling them to get the Water Filtration System going. What a wimp.

Then at the December meeting the chair weaselled out of the approved motion from the Nov. 2017 meeting. They have refused to send a lousy letter. These clowns are not concerned about what the community wants.

Then the January 2018 meeting was not video recorded or audio recorded. The Administrator had to use my audio of the meeting to compose his minutes. The admin blamed the camera but didn’t offer any reason why he didn’t use the audio recorder used by UBID at every meeting!

The camera is returned and the Admin no longer is in charge of the recording and we are paying someone to come and turn the camera on and then off again at each meeting. How ridiculous.

This admin is not suitable for this position. He has zero government experience and has not attended any courses for him to learn the job. He’s learning FOI regulations one phone call at a time and appears to think this is acceptable.

If we had a qualified Admin we wouldn’t be having the problems with the board making stupid mistakes because they think if they vote on something – that makes it legal.

A competent Admin would be able to advise the trustees what their authority is and isn’t. There is no one who knows what they are doing at UBID and that’s why we have such a shitshow going on.

None of this shit would have happened when Kevin Douville was our Admin. He was a professional and knew his job. Always provided prompt answers to correspondence and if he didn’t know the answer he would find out and get back to the landowner.

We are scraping the bottom of the barrel hiring staff with no government experience – it’s mind boggling.
