Slack Point article needs clarification

The Woods Islands are not suitable for recreational boaters for mooring or anchoring due to access, weather and commercial activities.


Re: Marine park latest Slack Point salvation? Ladysmith Chronicle, Nov. 8.

The article requires a little clarification. Our proposal focuses on the crown owned water lot, referred to as ‘dogpatch’ to be designated as a marine park.

If the Slack Point lot is added, so much the better.

The Woods Islands are not suitable to recreational boaters for mooring or anchoring boats due to access, weather exposure and commercial activities critical to the forestry operations.

Yes there are complexities with our proposal, but the question remains: Do the citizens of Ladysmith support our proposal for the provincially owned water lot (dogpatch) to be designated and developed as a BC Marine Park with all the benefits that marine tourism will bring to this wonderful seaside town?
