Kensington Island Properties spokesperson, David Godfrey rears his misleading head again – the chief divider in Union Bay.

David Godfrey known as the KIP spokesperson spinning more bullshit. Things were progressing well in Union Bay in 2015, with a board who planned a new treatment plant and eventually purchased the very piece of land by Langley Lake that KIP’s own consultants targeted as a prime spot for the plant.

David Godfrey then took a petition around and misled the landowners telling them KIP would fund the facility and encouraging them to sign a petition demanding the then board give KIP an extension. This was the start of the division.

From the guy on the board who left the community just about bankrupt by the time he was turfed out. They spent every penny they brought in and never planned for the future – just like the board we have now.

From the guy on the board who was involved in purchasing the school property which turned out didn’t have clear title – no one seems to know if they bothered with a title search.

From the guy on the board who authorized thousands to be spent on renovations on a piece of property UBID didn’t have clear title to.

From the guy on the board that can be thanked for the legal costs incurred trying to get SD 71 to take the property back. From the guy who cost Union Bay tens of thousand of dollars while on a board who ignored due diligence.

We all know what Loxam was talking about. He thought it was a big deal that the developer would write a cheque for around $400,000. instead of giving a cheque for each lot with a CEC of $8900. Jim correctly stated that it’s nothing to crow about since it is required by our bylaws. Loxam is ignorant of the bylaws and it looks like Godfrey is too.

From the guy who told the community in April 2011 that Union Bay was receiving a $1.7 Million dollar GIFT in the 2011 Water Infrastructure Agreement from KIP only to have to admit (after the agreement expired in Dec. 2014) in 2015 it was not a gift – it was an interest free loan.

From the guy who took credit for the negotiated 2011 WIA giving 500 water connections which violated our water license. Max is 1045 connections – currently approx. 700.

From the guy on the board who negotiated the 2011 WIA which gave KIP ownership of the water treatment facility until a new permanent facility would be built. In other words, we wouldn’t own it until we no longer needed it.

From the guy who took a petition around insisting the then board give KIP an extension on the agreement which KIP allowed to expire Dec. 31, 2014.

From the guy who never bothered to find out if an expired agreement can be extended, instead he divided the community by telling landowners KIP would fund the water treatment plant.

From the guy who was part of the board who locked us out in 2011 and then wrote letters condemning the board in March 2016 for not being accountable. Upset because the board wouldn’t commit an illegal act by extending an expired agreement.

From the guy on UBID boards who never did a thing to prepare for the future water treatment when VIHA kept advising UBID of deadlines until the lousy April 2011 WIA. How many deadlines passed with no thought to the future?

From the guy who, like our present idiotic board, kept secret the fact that one of the trustees was negotiating with KIP and two of the trustees were only made aware when they received a draft. The current board is using the same playbook – excluding trustees that might disagree.

From the guy who promotes the dysfunction and disregard for the bylaws, policies and directives, and encourages the current board to continue stomping on democracy.

From the guy who can’t stand that someone might have a different opinion and wants people to believe that exercising their right to free speech is “trying to divide the community”.
