Moul to present

Comox Valley Conservation Strategy's Ian Moul will give a presentation Nov. 14 at the next Comox Valley Environmental Council meeting.

Comox Valley Conservation Strategy representative Ian Moul will give a short presentation Nov. 14 at the next Comox Valley Environmental Council meeting.

Moul will speak about the proposed annexation of four areas by the City of Courtenay. This meeting will be held at the CVRD boardroom at 550A Comox Ave. in Courtenay, starting at 7 p.m. A short CVEC annual general meeting will precede the presentation.

These proposed areas for annexation are all quite different in type, and two (Including the Millard Creek upper area, and former Lannan forest) are of special concern in terms of possible environmental impact within the Comox Valley.

Development within these areas if they are annexed would appear to be contrary to the aims of both the Regional Growth Strategy, and the CVCS Nature Without Borders report. There is also concern that the ‘population opposed’ petition method used to evaluate these areas is an inappropriate tool for this type of change.

Ian is a registered professional biologist, and has been very involved with environmental issues within the Comox Valley for many years, including CVEC, CVCS, the Wildlife Tree Stewards Program, and the Brooklyn Creek Watershed Society.

CVCS is an organization of about 20 local environmental groups bound together by the Nature Without Borders publication, and nature protection strategies within it. CVEC is an overview “umbrella organization” also of about 20 green groups, and meets about five times a year with appointed local elected officials.

The meeting is open to the public.
