TOWN OF GIBSONS ORDERED TO RELEASE ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION ABOUT “THE GEORGE.”

 

The BC Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner (OIPC) has ordered the Town of Gibsons to release information pertaining to environmental impact and harm mitigation strategies for the George Hotel and Residences project.

Order F20-31 was released on July 13, 2020. In it, OIPC adjudicator Ian C. Davis explains that the information requested by the GABC Society is contained in nine peer reviews prepared by professional engineers hired by the Town to review reports submitted by ‘The George’ developer, as well as one responsive report provided by the developer’s consultant.

These critical technical reports have never been seen by the public, nor by the elected decision makers who approved the development permits for the project.

THANKS-GIVING

Dear Community,

As you know, Gibsons Aquifer is under threat from excavations, dredging and construction activities needed to build the George hotel, condos and marina project. These activities could result in the loss and/or contamination of our drinking water supply and the poisoning of our harbour. 

On Saturday October 7, we hosted a special Thanksgiving Rally and fundraising event in Dougall Park to bring new to light to the dangers our drinking water supply and environment face if the George development is allowed to proceed as planned. 

We want to express our deepest thanks to all those who contributed to this effort and helped make our special Thanksgiving Rally a success. Our sincere appreciation and gratitude goes out to all those who donated goods and services, time and energy and money to help support this cause.
