Dysfunctional Union Bay made the news in 2019 Year in Review
Union Bay Improvement District Meeting Dec. 19, 2019. Audio only.
The board is going to retain a person qualified to assist the Admin with the negotiations now that UBID employees have joined a union. Too bad they didn't keep the professional negotiator the Molstad board retained to negotiate a water agreement with Kensington Island Properties. The pro KIP trustees decided they had the qualifications to... Continue Reading →
Arbour upset – wants an apology. Sorry we read the incorrect info on your calendar and website – which is still wrong!!!
Have been exchanging emails with Arbour. He thinks my statement at the top of my blog about "intentionally mislead" is ironic. No, Daniel, it would be ironic if I didn't post the correction! Arbour's emails to Paul https://newdaysinunionbay.com/2019/12/14/union-bay-area-a-director-daniel-arbour-going-to-seattle-washington/ You would never have seen emails like that from our previous Director, Bruce Jolliffe. Took this screenshot... Continue Reading →
Area A Director Arbour now the target of Kensington Island Properties aka Union Bay Estates. Spider to the fly. How gullible is this neophyte Director?
EDIT Dec. 15, 2019. Arbour upset about me posting the info on his calendar on his website which he now states is wrong. Hasn't fixed it though. Noticed this on Paul's blog http://newdaysinunionbay.com/2019/12/14/union-bay-area-a-director-daniel-arbour-going-to-seattle-washington/ Apparently, Arbour https://danielarbour.ca/contact/ can travel out of the country to receive an update on Union Bay Estates, but couldn't be bothered to...

Landowners questions allowed at Dec. 19, 2019 Union Bay Improvement District Board Meeting
EDIT Dec. 14, 2019 Check out Paul's blog on the UBID wage increases http://newdaysinunionbay.com/2019/12/14/union-bay-improvement-district-trustee-vandenburg-answers-budget-inquiry-questions/ It has been literally months since landowners questions were allowed at the board meetings - not that you will actually get an honest answer. Let's hope mrknowitall doesn't have another hissy fit calling for the video camera to be turned off... Continue Reading →

Remember the South Sewer project was not going to outfall into Baynes Sound?

An outfall to Baynes Sounds was rejected when the South Sewer Project was planned. Will be interesting to see if the First Nations agree to KIP's plan. Previous posts regarding... Continue Reading →
