Letter: Clean up of greenspace needs to be completed

Those who feel they have native ancestral rights to store their personal belongings on the green space are sadly mistaken.

Open letter to District of Lake Country councillor LisaCameron:

Just a note contrary to the nay sayers.

Everything you have said is fact and your support is growing among those I’ve talked with.

Those who feel they have native ancestral rights to store their personal belongings on the green space are sadly mistaken.

I am questioned often and feel the survey previously done stands with good merit and represents the thoughts of the vast majority of residents.

As is the case with those who thought their docks were grand fathered—not the case, in fact the greenspace plan suggests a grand fathering but the legal opinion of the day was it simply was not legal and that letter from legal counsel is included in the suggested plan.

I do have a challenge for our mayor:

1. Show me the document that ratifies grand fathering of the docks. I will donate $200 to his choice of charity

2. Show me an agreement that allows personal property to be stored on the foreshore—another $200.

Should the latter not be available then please finish the job by removing the personal assets stored on the green space.

Blaine Copeland,

Lake Country
