Hmm $1000 a night fine.
What does Tofino charge?
Oh yeah they don't enforce the bylaws.

Tofino bylaw is impeded by Tofino council

1000 per day is a good deterent but only if enforced. Show some backbone council!

And make it retroactive $1000 per day based on the first day the violation started. We could be talking large enough fines that the district could take over the properties when they failed to pay the fines that get attached to their taxes. $30,000 a month adds up pretty quickly. Then we could have some town owned rentals.

The last thing we need is town owned rentals.The town cannot adequately manage the assets it already holds.

Town could sell them off as affordable housing, and make a killing. Putting more money into some rental housing. Wild speculation in any event.

$1000.00 per day should be sufficient deterent that even VR owners will want to hang on to their properties and desist. Or sell them at a potential loss.... as such actions by council will suppress crazy valuations for VR use.

Council needs to step up and show some backbone, this VR-BS has gone on to long. Any councillors expecting to get re-elected better get on board and fast or go down with the ship.
