 Abram moves Quadra Links public meeting to May 18

Regional Director Jim Abram pushed through an early hearing date for the Quadra Island Golf Club (Quadra Links) rezoning proposal against the applicants wishes, as well as the recommendation of Strathcona Regional District (SRD) staff and the advice of six of his fellow directors.

Quadra Links wishes to rezone a portion of their property so they can develop a 30 spot RV park, but requested that the meeting be delayed until the Fall. Strathcona Regional District (SRD) staff recommended the hearing be scheduled for Wednesday, November 23, 2022. The SRD Chair and a number of Campbell River directors voiced their support, but cannot vote in rural matters.

Only rural directors can vote and most of them supported Abram. So the public hearing will be at 7 PM on May 18, 2022 at the Quadra Community Centre.

SRD protests BC’s ‘reactive’ and ‘emotionally driven’ forestry policies

The Strathcona Regional District Board is writing Premier Horgan, to protest the government’s new ‘reactive,’ and ‘emotionally driven’ forestry policies. 

This letter appears to have largely been composed by Campbell River Director Charlie Cornfield, with some additions by SRD Chair Brad Unger. 

If the authors had stuck to the idea that local government should be involved in the process, or taken a less confrontational approach, their letter would have received more support. 

Instead, the decision to send it carried by a 7 to 6 vote.
