The other day Chris Montgomery (see comments), e.a.f. (a reader), and I hazarded a guess about what we thought might really be behind the closing of the Kits Coast Guard station.
Essentially, we speculated that the land and surrounding environs might be sold off for a condo-jacking.
I am sad to find out that we may have been at least partially right.
Jaz Johal and Peter Meizner of Global have the story. Here's there lede (but I suggest you read it all for the fullest context - because it looks like more land might go):
Global News has obtained an internal federal government email surrounding the sale of three properties in Metro Vancouver.
Some believe one of these properties could be the Kits Coast Guard base.
The e-mail mentions “the First Nations equity proposal for the Jericho Beach, DFO, and RCMP site.”...
I'll have more to say about this later.
And here I thought I was going to have an 'Angry Old Guy-Free' (TM) weekend.
Thanks to Laila for the heads-up.
