Secret meetings !

Hello, sorry for the lack of posts....I've been trying to find out about the DCC committee but all the meetings are held in should be a public process but I guess they have something to hide......the Development Cost Charges as imposed now are illegal as they are based on the District of Tofino going to Kennedy Lake for water......they have to be reconfigured......ask your council or committee members why they are meeting in is as bad as this council which goes into "in camera " secret meetings all the time......not since the Nixon era have I seen this kind of paranoia !!!

Giving credit

Have to give full credit to Councillor Ashton for generating more publicity for Tofino than the O-zone and Tsunami warnings combined......I got calls and emails from all over the globe in response to his proposed franchise ban !! Well done ! and at zero cost to to the taxpayer !!! The story was picked up by all major news services and received lots of attention across North America......

Hooters in Tofino

It seems that the new anti-franchise stance taken by Tofino council may put on hold the rumoured Hooters Restaurant in Tofino....this is another issue that promises to divide the community.....regardless it is good to hear councillors voicing their opinions in spite of the gag law.....
Happy to report that Tofino is actively working on a liquid waste management plan......I haven't been able to get any details on the agreement by Tofino to accept sewage from Pacific Rim National Park.....I'll post them as soon as available.....

march 9 2010

Sorry for the lack of news I was away for a few days.....interesting to see that Tofino is going to be accepting sewage from Pacific Rim Park !! I'm surprised that the park would want its sewage pumped raw into the waters of Clayoquot Sound !! I'll try to get a copy of the agreement between the district and the park as soon as possible......Looks like the war on vacation rentals has fizzled and it will be business as usual........a new war has been declared on franchise businesses in Tofino !! just heard Councillor Ashton on CBC radio speaking on the proposed ban !! details to follow
