Public watching sea cucumber licensing

Dear editor,

Re: Applications for licences of occupation for sea cucumber ranches.

We, the public, must be diligent in protecting the health of our Baynes Sound shores and waters from compromise and degradation due to the pressure of profit.

A long-range plan clearly setting aside areas absolutely protected for recreation, untampered by industry, is essential for this valley.

May our elected decision-makers and their staff act with care, diligence, vision, and integrity when evaluating these two applications for licences of (massive) occupation of our coastal waters.

Enough is enough! Please place these areas of Baynes Sound yet unlicensed to industry in the hands of the public to preserve in beauty, balance, and health for this and future generations of the Comox Valley.

The public IS watching this carefully!

Eleanor Riddell,

Comox Valley
