Received this email circulated by the guy who brought you the petition that screwed up the 2015 Board’s plan to build water treatment facility by claiming KIP wasn’t being treated fairly. Their version of ‘fair’ was to force the 2015 UBID Board to extend the 2011 Water Infrastructure Agreement that KIP allowed to lapse Dec. 31, 2014. Here we sit under boil water advisory when we would have had the system by Aug. 2018 if these KIP flunkies hadn’t brought the process to a standstill getting people to sign stating they did not want to pay for the system.
More on Godfrey https://allthingsunionbay.com/2016/12/30/kensington-island-properties-zealot-david-godfrey-claims-union-bay-trustees-trying-to-pick-up-the-pieces-left-of-the-former-wia/ The documents Godfrey claimed to have seen proving UBID was stalling was bullshit. McMahon did his usual bullshit and stalling claiming he was going to provide me with the documents and then claimed I would have to attend his lawyer’s office in Vancouver to read them.

This is also the same guy who told the landowners in 2011 that the WIA was a $1.7 Million dollar GIFT to the community and only admitted it was an interest free loan after Dec. 31, 2014! Look at the track record from this guy before you drink the KIP koolaid. Plus, this same guy has been referred to as “Kip’s Representative”.
The CVRD isn’t turning Union Bay into a third world country – the hillibillies have that locked up.
Note the last line: “With the Development stalled..” Oh gosh, who would have thought the development might not go ahead? It’s only been 24 years since KIP has been making outrageous promises only to have nothing happen. How could anyone be surprised?
Did these guys send an email to Arbour about the 1875 cubic meters of treated sewage planned to be dumped into Washer/Hart Creek daily if they are concerned about the shellfish industry?
Anyone buying a home in Union Bay is getting ripped off. Every couple of years this developer shows up and announces he’s going ahead and renames the development. The realtors latch on and spew the bullshit about a marina, hotels, blah blah and nothing ever happens and yet the prices continue to rise with nothing happening.
Mar. 1, 2018 KIP announced their new development, Union Bay Estates. https://allthingsunionbay.com/2018/03/01/kensington-island-properties-aka-34083-yukon-inc-announcing-new-development-again/
This is the bullshit McMahon spewed 2 years ago. Let’s get real. This guy isn’t going to build a sewage treatment plant. He’s going to sit and wait for the landowners to put up the bucks. When the South Sewer Project was active there was not a peep from this developer – never offered anything towards the system. What exactly has KIP done since 1996 when it was no longer Weldwood? Zip. Cleared land, dug trenches, dumped the 27 contaminated coal hill acres back on the province all the while patting the local hillbillies on the head telling them how smart they are.
“Everything is approved now. Before, we had ongoing hurdles we kept trying to overcome. Everything has improved,” he said. Next steps Before construction of any of the housing units can occur, Kensington will have to supply a wastewater treatment facility in order to service the projects. “We have to get the wastewater treatment plant up and running before we can sell any homes,” he said. “In order to do that, we need to get the pipes in the ground, we need to get roads built. We were meeting this morning talking about where the pipes are going to go.” McMahon said the company has applied to the Ministry of Environment to begin work on implementing a wastewater treatment facility. “That application is in the process,” he said. McMahon added the goal is to possibly begin construction on homes by summer 2019. “Before that, there will be roads, pipes put in the ground. There will be all the underground servicing going in,” he said.
