ï Paddling groups, ferry and sea plane operators, business owners, residents, tourists, Victoria City Council, Provincial and Federal Politicians, Community Associations, Environmental Experts and former Mayors have all expressed grave concerns over this proposal
ï A petition opposing the marina, containing over 7,000 signatures, was formally presented to the Provincial, Federal & Municipal Governments Allocation of Crown Lands must be for the BENEFIT OF THE PUBLIC ó not for the benefit of a single developer!
