The Predator Developer Will Now Concentrate on Area A Director – Spider to the Fly

The rot took hold with this developer 15 years ago along with the fake Union Bay Residents’ Association and has spread year after year dividing and destroying this community. In Union Bay you can only be friends with those deemed acceptable by your neighbours. Don’t have an independent thought and above all, don’t express it. Thuggish behaviour has become the norm.

This developer has been running the Union Bay Improvement District since 2005 through Sept. 2020 with the exception from April 2011 to July 2016 when we had 5 trustees working for all the landowners and not kowtowing to this developer. This developer spread falsehoods and turned the community against that board because they wouldn’t buckle under his pressure.

We can breathe a sigh of relief with the results of the referendum knowing our governance will now change. We still need to be informed – no one is claiming the CVRD is perfect – We can’t afford to be ignorant regarding issues with Union Bay and its future.

The developer knows now his flunky trustees and the landowner who claims not to be his “representative” have done all they can for him including negotiating the 2017 WIA which really gives Union Bay squat. Sure he gave 4 acres of land for the water treatment plant (yet his own consultants never identify any land within the development as suitable) at the same elevation as the existing waterworks. They negotiated DOWN on the agreed upon 4 acres for a new firehall. Great negotiators! I’d like to know how he came to the 4 acre figure since he had previously claimed 5 acres was too small. After all the promises over the years by this developer and that’s all they got in their “negotiations”? Do we have “soaker pits for the peat slurry” and are we paying trucking fees to haul the slurry away?

The Molstad board purchased the land the developer’s own consultants identified as the ideal location for the water treatment facility but for some reason the developer was opposed (which is contrary to his own statement in the last email exchange below “Phase 2 will see the new facility closer to the lake”) and offered the 4 acres at the same elevation as the old waterworks. His flunkies got on the board and sold “the ideal location” back to the original seller and instead built on 4 acres. The developer must have told them it was the right size and why would they ever question the bullshit being fed to them? What is going to happen in the future 20 40 years from now? Did they consider they may need a larger piece of land? Where will that leave future landowners – will they have to start from scratch and purchase land and build larger because we had ignorant manipulated people ignoring the future needs of Union Bay?

The developer favoured our current Area A Director when he ran for the position a couple of years ago. The developer didn’t want anyone who knew the history so his flunky trustees campaigned against a local who knew the entire history of this developer in Union Bay and campaigned for Arbour who has made positive statements about the Union Bay Estates development. Spider to the fly.

Posted in Area A Director

Our so called Area Director – Daniel Arbour – who knows what he’s doing – can’t rely on his calendar and didn’t answer my email.

So according to Arbour’s calendar, which we know is unreliable because of his hissy fit when I and other landowners relied on it in Dec., he is attending the Union Bay Community Club’s Annual General Meeting tomorrow night at 7 pm. Maybe he’s just attending and not speaking.

When is he going to put out a couple of bucks and rent a room at the hall to speak to the community? How many meetings has he had for “updates on Kensington Island Properties aka Union Bay Estates” and yet not a word to let us know what is going on?

What is the plan for the “…cesspool of contaminants that continued to leech (sic) into Baynes Sound” according to KIP/Union Bay Estates VP, Brian McMahon?

Here’s the main page on his webpage – geezuz it’s a picture from the market! Look how many people can fit in to that confined space. This is the best he can do? This is the picture he chose to show him engaged with the community?

Here’s a screenshot of his calendar:

Here’s the email he couldn’t be bothered to answer.

Received a card in my mail “CVRD Electoral Areas Community Update #2”. Followed the instructions to get updates in Area A – wow 2 pages and most of it pictures. I don’t know about you, but I am thoroughly informed! And this massive information is going out a whopping twice a year. How does he keep up this busy schedule?

Note the wastewater management? Emphasis added by me. The Electoral Area Services Committee will be presented with possible options in the coming weeks. What are they going to saddle us with? What is sleazy (in my opinion) KIP planning?

Landowners will pay dearly – remember last time they wanted less than 1000 homes to pay $60 Million dolllars? They also wanted to start billing us right away even though there was no guarantee the project would even go ahead. KIP offered nothing when the study was going on.

Add the promise of of a sewage system by this sleazy developer (in my opinion) to the endless empty promises over the last 15 years.

So we will pay dearly for the sewage and then have the added bonus of dumping it into Washer/Hart Creek. Doesn’t that sound great considering when the CVRD wanted us to pay $60 Million – it was not going to be dumped into Baynes Sound or Washer/Hart Creek.

Community Conversation Thank you to everyone who attended one of our Let’s Hear From You Events” – all eight of you – what a turnout. How did he manage to answer all those questions? Arbour shows up about as much as McMahon!
