More complaints regarding CVRD’s stance on Zuks

 

Dear editor,

Response to Leigh Carter’s letter (CVRD responds to letter defending Zuks, June 11)

Leigh Carter: You have some big holes in your fact or fiction. I don’t need to point them out. You already know what they are.

You were very creative in your letter.

The Zuks have admitted to doing things without a permit and at the end of the day it is not what they did that was wrong, it was how they did it. There is rip rap all along that foreshore, installed past and present.

There are numerous staircases, including the huge ones installed by the CVRD at Goose Spit. Again, something you already know.

The issue in the Zuks’ case is that it was done as you term unlawfully!

They have since then tried to comply and reached lawful agreement in writing with the CVRD in December 2014.

They have also met all the terms of their agreement.

Costs by either party were never part of that agreement and now the CVRD is knowingly in breach of that agreement. This is unlawful!  The CVRD is not above the law and should honour the terms.

You can compose another letter full of holes at great cost to the taxpayer, painting the CVRD as victims, but fiction.

They are conducting themselves outside the law and that is wrong. The CVRD has a team of high-priced, out-of-town lawyers who know this and who are dragging out the process at the expense of all taxpayers. Having expensive lawyers at your disposal does not make you right, but it does make you a bully when you are working outside the law.
