The Provincial government is seeking public comment on The George’s Crown land application for a commercial lease to build a private commercial marina for The George Hotel and Condos on public land designated as park and recreation area on the waterfront in Gibsons Landing

The GABC Society has been fighting this project for many years and for many reasons. We have been reading and analyzing The George Project materials since the development application was submitted in 2013. Through these efforts we have gained expert knowledge of the proposed project, particularly with regard to risks it poses to our drinking water aquifer and the environment. We continue to work with highly qualified experts to inform, engage and address ongoing issues surrounding this project. We are committed to sharing documented, fact-based information with the public and government agencies to ensure the best decisions are made. At this point, we are intent on stopping this Crown land allocation for the reasons outlined below.
