Example Exposing Fake Article

This is the perfect example of an individual attempting to publish a fabricated article and how easily people like this are exposed. http://www.thecumberlander.ca/show2041a45s/Why_Is_Alan_de_Jersey_Embarrassed
How can he believe no one noticed he proved my point?
Information IS power.

The videos posted at Union Bay Improvement News http://www.youtube.com/user/UnionBayImprovement/videos are to provide information to the public regarding the process and decisions being made on your behalf by those who promised to represent YOUR interests.

I previously provided your government with copies of the videos, but in keeping with their policies - information is not shared.
It is impossible for people to attend all the meetings, and the miniscule information provided in the minutes and the Landowners Update are inadequate.

In keeping with my beliefs - I want all of us to know what's going on. Only videos regarding The Union Bay Improvement District will be posted. More videos will be added to keep information current.

YOU GET THE GOVERNMENT YOU DESERVE

Misappropriation

In
law, misappropriation is the intentional, illegal use of the property or funds of another person for one's own use or other unauthorized purpose, particularly by a public official, a trustee of a trust, an executor or administrator of a dead person's estate or by any person with a responsibility to care for and protect another's assets (a fiduciary duty). It is a felony, a crime punishable by a prison sentence.
From 2007 Mail Outs Titled "Fairness In Our Community", and posted on old blog. Still believe it to be true.
Again, if anyone thinks I’ve got my facts wrong. maryreynoldsis@hotmail.com more at http://allthingsunionbay.blogspot.com/ By the way, I’m not auditioning to become a friend etc., so I’m not interested in comments regarding my presentation, style, bluntness, politeness blah blah - get it? This is not personal – it is business – I don’t care if one of your relatives or friends or neighbors is an elected official. They are accountable – like it or not. It doesn’t matter what level of government – they are elected.

SOME POINTS I FIND INTERESTING IN THE IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT MANUAL

The British Columbia Improvement District Manual
  • Each trustee has a single vote and their power lies in the ability to convince the other trustees to agree with their point of view.  Therefore, one trustee cannot commit the district to any particular action, not even the chair.  The powers of trustee are collective, rather than individual.  For example, a trustee negotiating an agreement or contract on behalf of the district cannot make a commitment until the rest of the trustees have had the opportunity to review and vote on the matter.

  • The main duty of the chair is to preside at meetings of the trustees and as such, must be familiar with the rules governing meetings.  These rules are adopted by the trustees by resolution and are commonly based on Roberts Rules of Order or Parliamentary procedure (sample Meeting Procedures are contained in Section D).
  • Trustees must not use their position to benefit personally or they may be in a conflict of interest.

  • In court cases, the test generally used will establish a standard of reasonableness as to the likelihood of specific bias on the part of the interested person.  It is important to note that even the appearance of a conflict of interest may cause as many problems as an actual conflict.

  • The common law allegation of conflict of interest can be part of an attempt to strike down a bylaw, resolution or decision of the board.  In court cases, the test generally used will establish a standard of reasonableness as to the likelihood of specific bias on the part of the interested person.  It is important to note that even the appearance of a conflict of interest may cause as many problems as an actual conflict.

  • A trustee should not do anything which they cannot justify to the public.  It is not always enough to avoid actual impropriety; trustees should at all times avoid any occasion for the appearance of improper conduct.

  • Employees should recognize and accept decisions made by the board of trustees.  Employees have a responsibility to advise the board on the implications of their decisions, especially as they relate to legislative requirements however, they should not enter into debate with trustees about issues at board meetings.

  • Use of Improvement District facilities:   Any facilities, such as transport, stationery, or office support services, provided by the improvement district for trustees in relation to their duties are to be used strictly for those duties and for no other purpose.

  • The Local Government Act restricts an improvement district’s ability to recover its costs from individual trustees, officers, employees, or volunteers.  That is, if the improvement district is faced with a court action in its own name, the improvement district cannot commence a suit against any of these individuals to recover its legal costs or damages unless the claim relates to gross negligence of the person, or the person acted contrary to the terms of the person’s employment, or an order of a superior.

SOME OLD PICS OF COAL HILLS FROM SUMMER OF 2005

The above picture shows the hard 'crust' that existed in 2005.  This is long gone - now everything is crumbling and being washed away. 

Here's some pics I came across from 2005.  Huge difference from the condition the east side of the coal hills now.

I'll try to take some from the same locations for "then" and "now" comparisons.

THE BEGINNING OF A NEW ERA IN UNION BAY

It's not only the beginning of a new year for the residents, but the beginning of our Royal Highness' reign.  Will January 8 be designated a holiday in order to honour our King?  Shall we have a lavish celebration to commemorate this historic day?  Perhaps we should wait to see if Charles and Camilla can attend.  Oh my god, I am so excited!!!

As always, I have many questions.  Will the above crown be on display for the peasants to view free of charge?  Will the King draw up new rules for the peasants?  What is the proper protocol when in his presence?  Will there be punishment for those who displease His Royal Highness?

So many questions.......

MORE DEBRIS BEING EXPOSED

The amount of debris buried under the coal is being exposed at an alarming rate since the high tides in the last few weeks.  Does anyone know exactly what, and how much is buried?  Doesn't take much water to wash away whatever is between the debris causing the collapse and washing away of the coal.

MORE WASHER CREEK AND COAL HILLS EROSION


The following pictures and videos were taken Dec. 24, and Dec. 30, 2010.  For those who have kept track of the erosion, you will notice a major change in the profile of the coal hills on the east side.  The tree which I had stated would be the next to go is now hanging on by a couple of roots and has dropped from where it grew previously.

These pictures start with a walk along Washer Creek out to the point along the shoreline and then back on the path above, and on top of the coal, which is half the width it once was.
