Union Bay “Democracy Dies In Darkness”

The Washington Post added a new phrase beneath its online masthead this week — “Democracy Dies in Darkness”

From a definition I found, “In a representative democracy the citizens elect representatives from among themselves…. Democracy is a system of processing conflicts in which outcomes depend on what participants do, but no single force controls what occurs and its outcomes. The uncertainty of outcomes is inherent in democracy.”

That article got me thinking and I started to ask how that affected our lives in Union Bay

Union Bay landowners have an opportunity to elect a trustee to represent them on Saturday November 23rd

Where is the Union Bay Office you ask?…..https://goo.gl/maps/KxFBU6Q37FLKeGoT9

Our choice has been made…. now just get out and VOTE….Democracy dies in the Dark

Union Bay Estates Sanitary or Storm Sewer or ?????

PVC Pipe on development site

One of my neighbours stated, doubt that is sewer pipe. Maybe storm drain. So, I wonder if the storm water management plan will direct contaminated run of into Baynes Sound without some type of treatment. Some info on this work being done would be great for the residents so we can know what’s going on Maybe CVRD can advise.

So, I went to get some answers and called Alana Mullaly, she explained that she thought the PVC pipe may be drainage for the road work that was being constructed or possibly culvert piping.

More information will be on the CVRD and Union Bay Estates web site shortly.

Thats a lot of heavy equipment not working for weeks

Union Bay may get a surprise Christmas gift

We decide to take a walk today during the break in the rain and while strolling down Jones Street we noticed the heavy equipment and sanitary and storm sewer piping on the Union Bay Estates development site.

Didn’t notice any activity on the site today……

Noticed the Union Bay Improvement District Trustee Election sign by the Union Bay Boat Launch

New build on the old fire hall site starting to take shape….
