Came across this info from Aug. 2009, right before the hearings the CVRD held after it lost the legal case for changing the water source to Langley Lake after promising it wasn’t even considered or on the table. What happened to all the benefits this development was going to provide? What happened to these conditions UBID wanted in exchange for supporting this development? Check out #10 regarding fire fighting for a marina and #13 about the developer building a fire hall.

Even in 2015 and 2016 when KIP was wanting an extension on his expired 2011 Water Agreement, he was offering an interest free loan. Was never mentioned again when UBID negotiated a new Water Agreement. We have had trustees negotiating agreements that were not qualified to negotiate. The Jacques, Bitten, Loxam board dismissed the professional negotiators the previous board had hired and handled it themselves and that’s why we are where we are.

Let’s dump this hillbilly form of government and have some experts looking out for our best interests. Vote YES for conversion. Advance polls on Tuesday, Nov. 10 and 17, with general voting day set for Saturday, Nov. 28. Voting time each day occurs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Union Bay Community Hall.
