Good thing there isn't a sacred site there, or anything that needs protecting. Otherwise there'd need to be First Nations protesters and media all over the place to avoid the damage.


Just found the first place to cross of the list of places I ever want to visit.
Who knows, maybe a new species would be found like the great "spirit bear".

For those not in the know, that is what enviros pounced on in the west coast of BC which is not a species at all, just a white color phase of the common black bear. There is nothing genetically different about it.

"Paving Paradise" was right. My family would no more use that place than hang out in Seattle all summer. Buddha forbid it doesn't happen. One of our favorite and most magical cruising memories was finding a whole mass of sea cucumbers in the lagoon!

It's right that Refuge Cove and Lund provide all of anything you need in that area, and that doesn't count Campbell River or Madeira Park. The last thing the area needs is more amenities!

Just give it a pass. Sad but it's a big coast and if you're really cruising there's Hagendaaz. in the freezer and oysters await.

No - no new information. Maybe the guys who live and work close by might know something.

Didn't know that. I cruised by there yesterday, didn't stop in but it looked quiet from a distance. Could be a seasonal closure. I do know it's for sale for a cool 1.35 million.

I was on the website (Applications and Reasons for Decision) about a week ago and it indicated that the application is under review. The store closing is bad news. The web site is still up.

GraemeInCanada Yikes, that's just bad. Here's what I submitted to them and I encourage everybody else to write at least something to put your vote in:

******
I would like to put my vote in to strongly encourage a proper study into the severe effects this will have on the local environment. With a capacity of upwards of 388 boats, there is no way the cove can handle that kind of discharge of gray or even black water, there will be all kinds of "accidents" and the whole area will just become completely inhospitable to any marine life. This is not the way to "develop" such a pristine area, you might as well just pave over the whole area and invite every car around to idle there for the summer.

People don't go to this area to congregate in large groups and watch the environment be destroyed for the mighty dollar. This area should be heavily protected and nurtured for future generations, not developed for 1/10th of a generation to create irreparable repercussions for future generations.
