Maple Pool defence fund announced to assist Lin family

Submitted

Maple Pool Defence Fund committee spokesperson Jean Rowe has announced that a bank account has now been opened at the Coastal Community Credit Union for the purpose of receiving donations to assist the Lin family and the residents of Maple Pool Campground with their legal fees.

“The Lins are personally out of pocket tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees as they have opposed the court action that has been brought by the City of Courtenay which is applying to the court to force the closure of the campground and the displacement onto the streets of 57 of our community’s most vulnerable people,” said Rowe.

“These are people who are feeding the residents of the campground on a weekly basis, out of their own pockets and all the while they have been bearing the costs of defending their small community within a community alone. We believe this to be very unfair,” added Rowe.

Donations may be made at any Coastal Community Credit Union to the Maple Pool Defence Fund account or cheques may be mailed to the Maple Pool Defence Fund at 4685 Headquarters Rd, Courtenay, B.C. V9N 9H4.
