In his capacity as CBRA Chair and founder of the Cadboro Bay Dead Boats Society, Eric Dahli has written to Andrew Weaver, MLA for Oak Bay-Gordon Head for help in removing two more boats that have washed up at Gyro Beach:
Further to our discussion on October 26th, this will confirm our request for your assistance in helping us remove 2 derelict boats from Cadboro Bay. I have copied both Mayor Elect Haynes and Murdoch as there is a beached derelict boat in each of the Districts of Oak Bay and Saanich.
In addition to these two beached vessels there is a concern that at least two other vessels anchored in Cadboro Bay are fast approaching derelict status and the winter storms accompanied by gale force winds from the South East could add to the blight on the beach.
The Cadboro Bay Dead Boats Society and the residents of Cadboro Bay stand ready to assist and can provide additional information and clarification as required.
