WATCH: Oak Bay Mayor asking province to step in, to help with derelict vessels left in Cadboro Bay. Isabelle Raghem reports.
It’s been an ongoing problem for years: Who should be responsible for the clean up of derelict vessels in Cadboro Bay.
The bay sits within the municipalities of Saanich and Oak Bay and the local residents association says they’re frustrated with the lack of action on one of the sides.
“On the Saanich side, no boats they’ve been all cleaned up, but the other side” says group member Jerry Donaldson, “we’ve found 16 derelicts.”
