UBID dictator cancels Feb. and March meetings. “Haraldson declined to explain his decision”.

They’re on the run and hiding.

Dunning-Kruger effect again. “Chair Haroldson has are cancelled the February 21 & March 21, 2019 Board Meetings.” Isn’t his name Haraldson? Has are cancelled?

The Chair does not have unlimited powers and certainly can’t cancel meetings unilaterally.

Everything these clowns say and do has to be checked on because they dream up rules and just spout things off the top of their heads.

From the bullshit election flyer: “I would never agree to anything that I felt would be a bad decision for this community and its people.” Well he’s already made numerous bad decisions and continues to do so because he hasn’t got a clue about what is involved in being a Trustee!

Union Bay is in a mess because of actions like this which are made without any information to back them up. The Chair is doing exactly what caused the Ombudsperson’s Office to step in when the then Chair pulled this same type of bullshit.

Why does the Chair believe he has the power/authority to cancel meetings? Wouldn’t this be made by the entire board?

Excerpt from below which set off alarms bells with the Ombudsperson’s Office:

…which granted additional powers to the Board Chair to close meetings to the public by decree “when circumstances interfere with District operations”.  This amendment did not provide any legal authority for the decisions made to close meetings to the public, and also raised new questions for us about the reasonableness of the amended meeting closure procedure.

Now we have a Chair that believes he can just cancel meetings. All motions must be brought before the public. UBID can’t run behind closed doors. How are they to function? Anyone want to make any bets on whether the dictator got legal advice before making this stupid decision? https://drive.google.com/file/d/1h5mZSpHP1iidmdBtJ9WbLoByfRhmrHKI/view

UNION BAY, B.C- Union Bay’s board of trustees won’t be meeting in February and March.

That’s according to a brief statement posted to the website of the Union Bay Improvement District on Tuesday afternoon, saying that the board’s chair Ted Haraldson has cancelled the meetings of February 21st and March 21st.

The district board has been roiled by disagreements in recent days, with trustee Susanna Kaljur getting a “suspension” lifted and an apology from the rest of the board.

When contacted by the MyComoxValleyNow.com newsroom for comment on the cancellation, Haraldson declined to explain his decision.

Union Bay gutless wonders

Trustee Kaljur should tell them to take a hike.  This ‘suspension’ is bullshit.  Under what bylaw/statute/rule are they basing this so called ‘suspension’.  Just like everything else they do – just make up rules and vote believing they can do whatever they want as long as they vote.

Did you notice this gutless board had a Committee of the Whole meeting Jan. 10, 2019, and didn’t advise Trustee Kaljur of the meeting?  They intentionally did not inform her to allow her the opportunity to address the allegations in person and have it recorded in the minutes.  No, the gutless wonders are terrified of this woman and didn’t have the backbone to face her.

They cherry pick what rules they abide by.  The Administrator, who is supposed to be objective, obviously took part in keeping information from a duly elected official by not providing information that is sent to all other trustees.  Again, this Administrator has proven to be unqualified for the position.  How many times has he kept information from Kaljur that was sent to all the other trustees?  The job isn’t to be a flunky to certain board members.

According to them, everyone at UBID including the Fire Chief will not attend public meetings because “…it is a very uncontrolled and hostile environment and could lead to violence”.  I want this claim verified by those mentioned – I call bullshit on this.  The only harassment has been dished out by some of these spineless men and their spouses.

How about the complaint from the landowner who was harassed by Bitten after the last AGM in 2018?  How about Bitten, Haraldson, Jednorog at the All Candidates meeting disrupting, pushing and shoving landowners?

These idiots think asking questions is harassment.  They get insulted if you challenge them on their information or request information.

They are unfit because they simply cannot treat everyone equally.  They have always acted as though they only represent those who voted for them – the rest of us are treated like shit.

Pacific Herring: Small Fish – Big Problem

Received the following informative email and amazing video. Well worth the watch.

Hi All,

If you’ve not seen this….   Folks on Hornby & Denman have launched a campaign to close the herring fishery.   They’ve produced a petition, and a great video.

Among other things, the video includes an important link to salmon farming – a large % of the catch is turned into food for fish farms. 

– Alice

The Petition:

...the last herring population Pacific Coast (the little fish whose spawning here in early March kickstarts everything) is in critical danger.
 ... sign the petition "MP Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister, Fisheries and Oceans Canada: Say NO to Pacific Herring Roe Fishery".   You can help by adding your name.
You can read more and sign the petition here:
 http://chng.it/NGzwM8D6kJ
 And, please forward to others so we can actually speak with a loud and clear voice.

The video: 

Please take the time to have a look and send it along to friends.

The Roe fishery takes the biggest and the best herring just before they

spawn.  Each female carries 50,000 eggs +/- so each female the fishery

removes is a potential 50,000 baby herring.

( “If we killed a chicken every time we wanted an egg pretty soon we

wouldn’t have any chickens” )
