I doubt any were broken.
Why do you think there's so many charities out there?
It's a great legal structure.

And the guy who put this together is a long term lawyer.
And this isn't the first one he's done.

Many of you may be familiar with Share.

I wonder, with all the hundreds of estates that have been donated over the years- likely thousands-
Why isn't there ever anything decent, high end or valuable that hits the sales floor... ever.
Just cheap horrid welfare crud.

A discussion with a few of the people who've worked receiving there over the years answered that one for me...
Is the world getting stupider, or is it just getting easier for stupid people to have their thoughts heard?

There's lots of directors of charities out there, quite a few in this community, that have become very wealthy from their charities.
A charity with a paid board of directors isn't a bona fide charity imo.
But they legally are.

It's an awesome legal structure for a business.
There's a reason there's so many of them out there.

For those who aren't in the know, a bit of sleuthing will tell you who the originator of Share is.

Yup. That's right.

If I'm not mistaken, in BC a Director of a non profit society or charity cannot be paid. Only expense reimbursement.

Yeah, it's not like people in that neighborhood are strangers to a criminal background.

Well Evensteven, if I am mistaken could you please provide us with an example of a Director of Board of a non profit or Charity in BC that receives renumeration, other than expenses. Just to be clear we are not talking about an Executive Director but a Board Director. Theres a big difference, I hope you know.

Why not build the project in Kettle Valley?


A thousand times this. The fact that Rutland is considered a dumping ground for these types of projects is disgusting.

Mcurdy and rutland road isn't close either.
Except for that macs store on the corner , which in itself isn't much of an amenity or service. It's likely little more than a cigarette and instant coffee dispensary for them.

I'm sure it's a safe bet very few of the occupants will own a car.
T.S. wins.
9 million free dollars, a free property and maximum occupancy, all tax free, courtesy of your tax dollars.

Suckers.

Nope - went by google maps. Thanks. Should have known it was out of date. So no grocery store at all at 33 and Rutland Road?
