Total increase since last year for (3) office, (2) waterworks and (1) fire chief - a whopping $121,475. increase! This is for six individuals. Union Bay landowners are suckers. Suckers to a developer who promised millions of dollars and the UBID board first negotiated (2011) with Kensington Island Properties an interest free loan on a... Continue Reading →
Kensington Island Properties aka Union Bay Estates is consistent year after year with the BS!
Kensington Island Properties aka Union Bay Estates latest website claims 300 acres and includes the coal hill! What's "new municipal infrastructure"? Where's the Gil Hanse designed golf course? Where's the sewage treatment plant? Can't build any houses without a sewage system. Received the following response to my questions regarding the coal hill and KIP claiming... Continue Reading →

https://allthingsunionbay.com/2017/05/25/update-on-the-coal-hill-remediation-kensington-island-properties-claimed-would-be-complete-in-late-2016/ Wanted to add a note to Paul's post http://newdaysinunionbay.com/2019/11/26/union-bay-residents-are-updated-on-union-bay-estates-development/ I received an email from Alana Mullaly from the CVRD in response to my question about the work across from Jones St. and who was paying for it. She doesn't mention KIP - just West Fraser Mills. How many different versions of the coal hill... Continue Reading →
KIP aka Union Bay Estates plans on discharging 1875 meter cubes treated sewage DAILY to Hart Creek is more than the new reservoir holds!
Here's a very old KIP report. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ujaScR-ti4jp3eAaPoyzhHZDZSXko6Nj/view?usp=sharing Lots of info regarding the size of the reservoir and interesting reading about the elevation and pressure. This report was based on the assumption the reservoir and water treatment plant would be on the land identified as an ideal location by KIP's consultants. The piece of land by... Continue Reading →
Union Bay Improvement District 2020 Budget finally posted.
EDIT Nov. 30, 2019. Checked last years budget and the admin wages increased $17,681.63 over last year. 3 employees in the UBID office - this seems a hefty increase. Who got what? EDIT Nov. 28, 2019. Check out Paul's blog with some interesting questions landowners may want answered. https://newdaysinunionbay.com/2019/11/26/union-bay-improvement-district-2020-budget/ Thanks to Chair Hein Vandenberg for...

UBID employees join union. Hmm more scrambling hanging on to position not qualified to hold.
EDIT: an individual thinks it doesn't include the CAO. Will have to check on this. Appears the threat of conversion and landowner complaints prompted the unqualified admin to join CUPE for protection. https://www.comoxvalleyrecord.com/news/munro-wins-byelection-for-union-bay-board/ This is also an indicator we are in for a surprise on the wages paid as we still have not seen any...

1875 meter cubes of treated sewage discharged to Hart Creek – but, but … UBID website claims KIP aka Union Bay Estates “is to benefit the environment”.
Will UBID be posting the info about the 1875 meter cubes of treated sewage discharged daily to Hart Creek? Shouldn't they continue with their "Union Bay Estates Update" or is it just whatever McMahon/KIP wants posted? https://allthingsunionbay.com/2019/11/25/union-bay-estates-application-package-seasonal-discharge-of-up-to-1875-meter-cubes-per-day-of-treated-municipal-sewage-to-hart-creek-during-the-months-of-october-through-may/ Post from when UBID started doing blatant pr for Kensington Island Properties aka Union Bay Estates https://allthingsunionbay.com/2019/04/17/ubid-cant-wont-provide-answers-but-they-can-do-public-relations-for-kip-aka-union-bay-estates/ Under...

Union Bay Estates application package – seasonal discharge of up to 1,875 meter cubes per day of treated municipal sewage to Hart Creek during the months of October through May
Under Utilities in full page ad when KIP was making all those empty promises. All treated wastewater will be dispersed through an irrigation system on the golf resort property and not into an out fall in Baynes Sound. A landowner (name removed) was kind enough to pass this info along so all landowners are aware... Continue Reading →
The Conversion Petition the Union Bay Improvement District completely ignored for 3 years.
This post is what transpired with the petition presented Nov. 13, 2016, through to Feb. 2018. https://allthingsunionbay.com/2018/02/21/how-the-union-bay-improvement-district-pro-kip-trustees-weasel-out-of-motion-for-information-about-becoming-service-area-of-cvrd/. It's disgusting watching the incompetence Union Bay has suffered since the pro KIP trustees were elected. If the outcome of the referendum on conversion is to join the CVRD, the earliest we could become a service area is... Continue Reading →
A Union Bay Improvement District first – admin actually posted election results within 24 hours
Or was a competent person filling in? https://drive.google.com/file/d/1LM6TAGFWTZKyIQYYprn5gJ2uxGQX2P_g/view Where is the 2020 Financial Budget approved at the Oct. UBID meeting? I hope newly elected trustee Ian Munro has the experience to detect whether an individual actually knows their position or is spending all their time scrambling, claiming to be bullied and threatened in order to...
