A Letter to the Minister Responsible

PEJ News
- Carolyn Knight - This matter is critical to water quality safety of Florence Lake and likely Goldstream Provincial Park river systems. Diversion of water has already occurred on Skirt Mountain; further devolving of water systems should not be allowed to continue to be perpetrated. Further, I implore your office to act to quell the frenzy of development inflicting untold damage to provincial and local water systems.

blasting the bluff

relative newz
- janine bandcroft - i found out what's going on at the intersection of landsend and dolphin roads, near the bc ferry terminal. a friend of mine had mentioned this several months ago, and i had circulated something about it, but i didn't connect it with what i saw today until i spoke with him this afternoon.  i had thought he was talking about the trees further along dolphin road, but apparently those are owned by the canoe cove people and they have development plans of their own (perhaps another, separate, battle).  my friend wants to remain anonymous, but here's what he said about what's going on in the photo (all this is otherwise unsubstantiated).

A Mountain for the Taking: Tangled Webs on "Bear" Mountain

SEA - Ben Isitt - Residents of the Capital Regional District, in Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities, remain committed to the protection of Spaet Mountain/Skirt Mountain in Langford. A Land Titles search in December revealed a Crown land grant of 44 hectares for Bear Mountain, for $1.05-million, a month after Gordon Campbell's Liberals were sworn into office. This public land, in parcels 81 and 84, Highlands District, borders Goldstream Park, below Mount Finlayson, and now contains the Bear Mountain Golf Course and proposed Bear Mountain Parkway. The mainstream media has been silent on this issue. On adjacent Bear Mountain property in the Highlands, a second golf course is under construction.

Snow Job

PEJ News - janine bandcroft - today's a snow day in victoria, a time to stay home, slow down, contemplate the power of mother nature to render us completely immobile.  i watched, from my fourth story apartment window, yesterday's early morning rain slowly form into snow flakes, and then continued to swirl about throughout the afternoon and evening.  it was beautiful, and brought back many childhood memories of community skating rinks and toboggan adventures.  snow is fun - decidedly more play friendly than the constant rain and wind storms we enjoyed last week.

A Second Snow Day for Victoria

PEJ News - C. L. Cook - Reminiscent of the Big Blizzard of '96, Victoria, the city so magnificently unprepared for snowfall then, is again shutting down. At this hour (7:15 am pst) bus service has been shut down, while forecasters are reporting more snow is on the way.

Proposed Transit Funding "Options" for Victoria

BC Transit - The Victoria Regional Transit Commission is reviewing fare and taxation options to improve transit service in the next three years. The Commission has invited residents to comment on these local funding options.
 
[Last year, a breakdown of BC Transit's costs was published in the local newspaper. What struck me at that time was; the single biggest expense for Transit apart from salaries was a 13% allocation, equal to fuel costs at that time, to service Transit's debt. I've not seen any remarks about this extraordinary and wasteful budget management. If the provincial government were to refinance this debt, how much more could the transit system do for the people of B.C. and our shared environment? - lex]
