Subject: Letter of Support-Kensington

Good morning to all-

Please find attached a letter of support concerning the recent developments in the Kensington saga,
and especially the Court decision of last week. It makes monumental sense that the CVRD take quick
action to get the Kensington application back on track. I also intend on providing this ‘open letter’ to
local media contacts, the Echo and Record.

Yours truly and thank you,

Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD)
600 Comox Road
Courtenay, BC V9N 3P6

Attention: Ms Debra Oakman CAO (via email)
            Mr. Bruce Jolliffe Director Area A (via email)

Court Decision-Kensington Island Properties (KIP) Application
and By-Laws # 2812 and # 2813

The recent BC Supreme Court decision concerning the KIP application and development marks a
significant setback for the majority of Union Bay residents and indeed the broader Comox Valley. Mr
Justice Wilson has “…set aside for illegality….” the subject Bylaws # 2812 and # 2813 effectively stopping
the KIP development in its tracks.

So, where to go from here? The ‘ball’ now rests squarely in the CVRD court and they should proceed
quickly to ‘right’ the ‘wrongs’ so clearly identified in Justice Wilson’s decision. In fact, and despite the
errors and omissions of the previous Comox-Strathcona Regional District (CSRD) administration, the new
CVRD administration now faces a golden opportunity to correct the ‘illegalities’ in the current By-Laws #
2812 and # 2813. Accordingly, I strongly encourage that the CVRD re-introduce and approve a new or
revised set of requisite by-laws that will allow the KIP development to proceed and to do so at the earliest
possible opportunity. To do otherwise would be grossly irresponsible and would exacerbate an already
significant, albeit inherited, ‘black eye’ for the new CVRD with respect to the District development
application process. This fact alone could well discourage any future developer from dealing or negotiating
with the new CVRD, and the potential economic downside alone is enormous.

It is also respectfully suggested that any new CVRD initiatives in respect of the KIP application include the
Union Bay Improvement District (UBID) especially in matters affecting the sourcing and provision of
water.

These recent developments in the KIP saga have been discussed with our Area A Director and he
understands and supports the requirement for quick action to get the KIP application back on track. He also
appreciates fully the strong support that exists among Union Bay residents for the KIP development, a
support base that has grown even stronger over the past few years.

I encourage all Union Bay residents who support the KIP development to say so publicly and to contact
CVRD Directors and Staff directly by letter, email, or phone. It is essential that residents and others
directly affected by the KIP development assume an active and aggressive role to ensure that our governing
bodies move this previously approved development forward as soon as possible.

The KIP development is clearly the right initiative at the right time not only for Union Bay but the entire
Comox Valley so it deserves our full and complete support.


Yours truly.

Dear Sirs:

I cannot believe that the above-noted development has once again been stalled in Union Bay. Judging
by the many meetings I have attended it certainly appeared that the majority of people in Union Bay are
in favour of this development. The benefits of this development will bring Union Bay once again to life
and enhance this area of the Comox Valley.

I certainly hope the Regional District would move as quickly as possible to amend whatever bylaws are
necessary for approval of this project. The people of Union Bay have been kept waiting long enough for
this development and it is time now to get on with this project quickly.

Yours truly,

Subject:         KIP and restoration of Hart(Washer)Creek
Date:            January 1, 4501 12:00:00 AM



Dear Bruce et all,
   I wish to register my dismay at the decision rendered by the Judge on shutting down the KIP project.
   Our 30+ members of The Hart Watershed Streamkeeping Society of Union Bay have been working
diligently with KIP in the restoration of the Hart Watershed for over ten years. KIP has already carried
out remarkable restoration work and is working east of the highway to provide surface water
runoff catch basins which will enable water flow in the creek throughout the dry summer months.
  The Streamkeepers of Union Bay have devoted many many hours of their time rescuing salmon
fry trapped in the pools before they dry up completely in the summer months. They are then stored in
the tanks at the Rosewall Creek hatchery and returned to Hart creek in the fall when the water is at a
good level again. We have salvaged in excess of 100,000 fry over the years while the creek is being
restored.
  As a result of the Judge's decision, this restoration work is delayed for yet another year and our
restoration and rescue work is becoming an endless task.
  To say it is disheartning to our membership, is an understatement, especially so, because the
proponents of UBASS claim to be environmentalists and according to Ms Hurley, "not against
development" but they have continuously thwarted our efforts. Just what this special interest
group stands for is a mystery to us.
  In conclusion, I urge you and the Board of Directors to take immediate action to rectify a perceived
injustice and let KIP get on with their work to the benefit of all concerned.
Sincerely,
Bob Grant

In light of the recent court decision to recind the by-laws affecting the proposed
Kensington development in Union Bay, please accept this letter as an expression of my
interest in ensuring that the Comox Valley Regional District moves as quickly as possible
to re-introduce and approve by-laws that will allow this project to commence.

As a resident of Union Bay I am aware of the benefits that this project will bring to our
community. I am also aware that if the court had decided in favour of the Region in the
aforementioned case, a number of projects related to the development and salted for
completion this year would have positively impacted not just Union Bay but the Comox
Valley.

I believe that it is imperitive for the Comox Valley Regional District to prioritize the
passing of any new by-laws required and do so post haste so that this project will not
experience further delay.

Yours truly

Please find attached my letter dated May 8, 2009 regarding the situation with the Kensington Island
Properties development.

My wife Terry and I own and operate Pearl Point Beach House(s) just south of Union Bay. We also
own a storage tank component design and manufacturing company known as Enviro Vault Canada Ltd.
with a sales office in Calgary and manufacturing facility in Edmonton. We do business primarily in the
oil and gas industry in Canada and the United States.
Many people come to Pearl Point, either as paying guests renting the homes on our property or as
clients of Enviro Vault. Collectively, they spend a lot of money supporting local businesses including
airlines, restaurants, car rentals, shops and stores, Mt. Washington, fishing guides, real estate brokers,
etc.

For the record, I am fully aware that Kensington Island Properties intends to offer dozens of vacation
rental homes, posing direct competition to our Pearl Point Beach House business. If I were merely
concerned about my own self-interest, I certainly wouldn't be going out of my way to support
Kensington. I support KIP because it’s the right thing to do.

Comox Valley Regional District,
Attn: CVRD Board of Directors


May 8, 2009

               RE: Kensington Island Properties Development


       Dear members of the Comox Valley Regional District Board of Directors,


Please consider the following letter as;
       a. my statement of displeasure at the mismanagement of the Kensington
Development bylaws, and
       b. my plea to you to correct the wrongs of the past by immediately tabling new
bylaws that would see the Kensington project move forward at the earliest possible
opportunity.

I would like to start by stating my opinion that this entire debacle stands before us as a
result of the Comox Valley Regional District lead negotiator’s grandiose attempt to
procure a regional water system at the expense of Kensington Developments. What was
moving along fairly smoothly in the Kensington public disclosure process took a
disastrous turn when the Van West Lakes “condition” unexpectedly appeared at the
second of three public meetings held in Union Bay. Many of us were struck by the
appearance that the Regional District seemed to be working very closely with the Village
of Cumberland in promoting the Van West Lakes water system for the Kensington
project. In fact, the CVRD and Village of Cumberland representatives attended a public
meeting in Union Bay, having arrived together or at least at the same time, sat together,
and both spoke strongly in support of the Van West Lakes/Cumberland water system.
Undoubtedly the fact that this system would also miraculously solve Cumberland's
severe water shortage problems was a mere coincidence. My “opinion” is that this was
an ill thought gamble that was played at the expense of Kensington’s pocket book and
Union Bay’s future. As it turns out, this strategy ended up costing everybody dearly. Not
only are we now left without a major development that would have supplied
unprecedented employment, services, and tax base to Union Bay and the entire Comox
Valley, the CVRD just burned upwards of 100 grand of taxpayer’s money in the resultant
lawsuit. Furthermore, Union Bay’s required upgrade to its current water system may now
fall squarely on the shoulders of the taxpayer and the entire Union Bay to Royston sewer
system is now in limbo or perhaps in jeopardy altogether. What a mess!




1)
That is now history and cannot be changed. We must now turn our focus to the future.
Now more than ever, on behalf of the entire Comox Valley, I implore you to get
Kensington back on track. At a time when the world's economies are arguably on the
most shaky ground they have ever been, with trillions of dollars being pumped into
stimulus packages to breathe life back into them, we have just kicked to the side a viable
job creation, “non-taxpayer-funded” stimulus program that would have benefited our
Valley and its future immensely. Growth is inevitable. Kensington is a model of smart
growth. It could well be the standard for subsequent developers to follow as the bar has
been set high. Allowing Kensington to fail by failing to act immediately and decisively
sends a very disturbing message to all other developers who are watching anxiously on
the sidelines; “Comox Valley is not open for business”.


We have before us a new, energetic, and intelligent Regional Board. I am very happy to
see these changes as they provide strong evidence that, like me, the greater percentage
of the Valley population was unhappy with the direction of the previous board and were
looking for new direction. Since the election, I now have a renewed hope in the regional
system. I am not alone in this view. Please don't let us down. Now is the time to correct
the wrongs of the past and implement a well thought plan that will see Kensington back
on track quickly “and fairly”.


Respectfully submitted,

I am a resident of the Comox Valley, living in Fanny Bay. I have followed with interest the ongoing
process of the Kensington Development.
I do not understand the recent court decision to rescind the by-laws which affect the Kensington

To all.

Let's hope that common sense prevails and the Kensington Project get's under way in a hurry.
If KIP acted on directions from the Regional District (i.e. did nothing illegal) does anyone beleive that
they would just walk away without seeking reimbursement from US (taxpayers in the valley) for their
costs.
We were/are looking forward to the new services, golf course, restaurants etecetera and just a real
sewer system would make it worth while.
In protest to the BSASS actions I would be prepared to contribute to KIP's legal costs.

Looking forward to some good news before too long....

Subject: Proposed Kensington Development

I'm writing this letter to encouage you to move as quickly as possible to reintroduce and approve by-
laws that will enable the proposed Kensington development to commence.

This project, which offers so much to Union Bay and also to the Comox Valley, has been delayed for a
variety of reasons for a long period of time. The Kensington proposal offers so much in terms of a
brand new sewer and water system that could be hooked up to by Union Bay residents, an 18 hole golf
course, a modern marina, the coal hills cleaned up, designated space for a future school, and a hotel
to name a few. Union Bay needs this development. It desperately needs a new fire hall and other
amenities that have been lacking for a long period of time.

Most importantly, the proposed Kensington development would be an indirect boom to the entire
Comox Valley. It would be one of the first areas of our Regional District that visitors would pass
through, creating a positve first impresssion. The Comox Valley is rapidly changing and this
development would be a tremendous asset to the entire Valley, creating jobs and encouraging
investment. It would also enhance the entire Comox Valley as a destination of choice.

I've worked in all three communities of the Comox Valley and was born in the Comox Valley. Union
Bay needs Kensington. The Comox Valley would be improved tremendously by the approval of
Kensington.

Please do your very best to ensure this well thought out development goes ahead poste haste...

Thank You..

Subject: Kensington Development

T he Kensington Island Properties project has been in the works for quite some time now.
It appears that the whole project has stalled over the past 5 years or more.

All I have read and head about this development seems to be positive, expect what comes from what
I perceive to be a small group of individuals calling themselves the "Baynes Sound Area Sustainability
Society".
I am not clear on their motive in blocking this project.

A walk from Royston to Union Bay along the water front certainly seems to indicate a great number of
failing septic fields.
It sounds as though an upgraded water system and sewer system for this area will only be possible if
the development goes ahead.
The economic future of Baynes Sound ( i.e. "sustainability") appears to be best served by eliminating
these old and failing fields.
Even without the new Kensington Development, it sounds as though we will need upgraded water
systems for the area.

The recent court decision to rescind the by-laws affecting the proposed Kensington Island development
in Union Bay, seems to have hinged around a lack of "due process" not the content of the bylaws.
I would certainly hope that you will re-introduce and approve by-laws that will allow this project to
commence in the immediate future, this time following "due process" and sparing us another costly
legal battle!
I believe the project will be good for all the Comox Valley, not just Union Bay, and look forward to
seeing it back "on track".

From Dee McDonald

It has been said that the Kensington Island Properties project has been in the works for some 17 years
or more. Whether this is true or not, we have certainly watched the progress or lack thereof of this
development for these past five years with much disappointment. Newspaper articles, public meetings,
newsletters and e-mails have gone back and forth to the point where there is little else to be discussed
or reviewed that hasn’t all ready been talked to death…LET’S GET IT DONE!!

In light of the recent court decision to rescind the by-laws affecting the proposed Kensington Island
development in Union Bay, please accept this e-mail as an expression of my interest in ensuring that
the Comox Valley Regional District moves as quickly as possible to re-introduce and approve by-laws
that will allow this project to commence.

I live on Spindrift Road, adjacent to Union Bay and I am aware of the benefits that this project will
bring to Union Bay and potentially to our area here south of Royston. I am also aware that if the court
had decided in favour of the Region in the aforementioned case, a number of projects related to the
development and slated for completion this year would have positively impacted not just Union Bay but
the entire Comox Valley. I firmly believe for example, that the Royston / Union Bay sewer
development as approved by referendum some years ago has no hope of approval by senior
government without the KIP development proceeding.

I believe that it is imperative for the Comox Valley Regional District to prioritize the passing of any new
by-laws required and do so post haste so that this project will not experience further delays.

Yours truly,

To whom it may concern;
   I am a resident here in Union Bay. The Kensington Project is in my back yard.
   In the recent court decision to rescind the by-laws affecting the proposed Kensington development I
wanted to have my views known. Please accept this letter to let you know my interest in having the
Comox Valley Regional District move quickly to reintroduce and approve the by-laws that will get the
Kensington Project back on track.
As a resident of Union Bay and a mother of 4 boys I am aware of the benefits, future employment and
new business that this project will bring not only to benefit Union Bay but also the Comox Valley.
   I believe that it is imperative for the Regional District to prioritize the passing of any new by-laws
that are required and to do so as soon as possible so that this project will have no further delays.
Thank you

Dear Sirs and Mesdames:

Even though we do not reside in Union Bay (we live on the most southern street in
Royston), we are very concerned about the Kensington project and believe that it
would be in the very best interests of the entire Comox Valley, including Union Bay
and Royston, if this project were to proceed as has been planned and in the works
for many many years. Before the principals of Kensington Island Properties decide it
just not worth fighting for this project any more, please do all you can to get it
done, sooner rather than later.

In light of the recent court decision to rescind the by-laws affecting the proposed
Kensington development, please accept this letter as an expression of our interest in
ensuring that the Comox Valley Regional District moves as quickly as possible to re-
introduce and approve by-laws that will allow this project to continue.

We live on Spindrift Road and are aware of the benefits that this project will bring to
the entire Comox Valley. We are also aware that if the court had decided in favour
of the Regional District, a number of projects related to the development and slated
for completion this year would have positively impacted not just Union Bay but the
entire Comox Valley.

We believe that it is imperative for the Comox Valley Regional District to prioritize
the passing of any new by-laws required and to do so as soon as possible so that
this project will not experience any further delays.

Sincerely,

Bill & Lena Whyte

Debra pollution:


This short note is regarding the recent decision to over-turn the proposed
development in Union Bay.

We are relatively new in the community by 5yrs. We have been at most of the
meetings regarding Kensington and listened to the pros and cons of the whole
scenario. With the aging community comes aging septic systems and water
problems as you know. The septic tanks are already leaching into Baynes
Sound and we are certain that it is polluting the waters of our lovely
community. There were people at the meetings that were not residence, some
from Victoria. They should maybe stay in Victoria and address the problems
of sewage going directly into the strait in their area where the problem is
one hundred fold more of a problem than in our community. We believe
Kensington is trying to do everything the proper way by cleaning up our
streams and oceans.

I believe that is imperative that the Comox Valley Regional District pass
the new by-laws required as quickly as possible. What ever happened to
majority rules?

Yours respectfully

G Buchanan

       Hello Mr Jolliffe, and the entire Regional District
       I am once again concerned for the future of our community.
       You are in a position to improve the quality of life for the residents of
       Union Bay.
       Our friends and neighbors in the area are ready for the Kensington
       Development.
       Our water needs a proper filtration system and the majority of the septic
       systems are falling. The people of Union Bay will be hard pressed to
       come up with 15 thousand dollars each to put in proper septic systems
       that are approve by the Vancouver Island Health Authority. I, in fact paid
       over 20 thousand dollars for a septic system 5 years ago. Kensington
       Development will improve our water and bring in a muchly needed sewer
       system to our community. And lets not forget how many jobs will be
       created. Everyone in this Valley will benefit from this project....the
       companies that build roads, install electrical, piping, pour concrete, frame
       homes, provide roofing, plumbing windows, flooring, tiling, drywalling,
       landscaping, tool rentals, heating systems, cabinet work, appliances,
       paint, furniture, window coverings, moving companies, clothing, bedding,
       beauty salons and spas, restaurants, hotels, airlines, car rentals, all
       industries related to tourism, heath care professionals, lawyers,
       insurance agents....the list goes on and on and on and on.
       I have seen some moderate growth with the town of Courtenay, minimal
       growth with the town of Comox, and no growth under the governing
       body of the Comox Valley Regional District. It is time to change that.
       Under your watch, you have been given a great opportunity with
       Kensington Island Properties. It is time to step forward and not
       backwards.
       Barb Nixon
