Those who attended the meeting last night will recall the Chair’s claims about the governance study. Another example of this Chair being oblivious and unable to respond to questions with accurate information. Mind boggling.
Trustee Kaljur has posted info backing up her statements. https://unionbay.news.blog/2019/06/04/i-accuse-the-chair-of-lying-why/
March 19, 2018 “..a vital step not yet completed – namely, getting construction of the water treatment plant well underway.” page 1
“the practical window of opportunity for the CVRD to request a governance study opens following the October 2019 general local elections.” page 2 – Marijke Edmondson Director, Governance Structures
May 6, 2019 “Once the new Board is up and running, the Ministry is prepared to support the efforts by UBID and the CVRD to work together to review governance. However it is important that the priority work of continuing construction of the water system plant continues.” Brent Mueller Director, Governance Relations (note: Several landowners received this letter due to multiple complaints about UBID governance)
Here’s the email I received from Mueller as I was one of the landowners who received a response concerning the water treatment plant and a governance study. https://allthingsunionbay.com/2019/05/26/we-need-to-start-ignoring-the-ministry-of-municipal-affairs-and-housing-they-have-made-it-clear-we-are-on-our-own-to-make-decisions-so-lets-get-the-study-done-to-become-a-service-area-of-the-cvrd/
Here’s the letter from the Ministry that the Chair and Kaljur disputed.
