My father turns 97 in May. I have not seen him in two years. I may never see him again. He lives in England and I have lived in Canada for 33 years. In the past we have visited every year, more frequently since my mother and his wife of 61 years passed away in 2009.
I just finished reading the article "Feds to pay for 80 abandoned boat assessments and removals in B.C." by Greg Sakaki, and I am wondering if there were any questions put to the ministry on why the owners of those abandoned vessels are not paying for the cleanup. It seems that the taxpayers are always cleaning up after big business (i.e., oil well clean up).

I read with interest David Black's commentary about the possible hosting of the 2026 Commonwealth Games.
There is a clear theme emerging in the development applications being brought forward in Saanich. Many greatly contravene the scale and form that are allowed or considered reasonable by planning, zoning and other guiding documents, and a dismayingly large number conflict with neighbourhood expectations and values.
The good news is the hope that this cost should come down each year
With regard to David Black's Feb. 18 op-ed concerning hosting the 2026 Commonwealth Games: Greater Victoria's 13 municipal 'fiefdoms' are gaining a growing reputation for "missing the forest for the trees." There's always a small vocal group of naysayers ready to rush to judgment and criticize any and every big, bold, challenging proposal that would bring benefits to the area.
I am writing in regards to the proposed parking fees at CRD regional parks. I am a resident of Central Saanich and frequent Beaver/Elk Lake and Island View Beach daily. I am totally opposed to parking fees as I am a homeowner and pay property taxes which helps fund our parks and pay CRD staff wages.
