You assume all "waterfront property" Owner's are "wealthy"....now who is being narrow minded? They pay more taxes for the right to legally have a glass of wine at the beach...how about you?...ever imbibe at an Okanagan beach? legally?
I also see all 5 of your posts on Lakeshore Walls have been removed. :sosorry:

The Province controls the lake level and is therefore responsible for damages stemming from their actions. Their data collection method that determines projected lake levels is flawed and they knew it. I have an email from one of the co-authors of the program used stating this...

Shawn Reimer, the Provincial man in charge, called it a crap shoot. He also stated flooding of the lake was preferable to flooding the river. Maybe a tally of what the lake flooding actually cost, including public damages, is in order?

Infrastructure that would eliminate flooding and satisfy downstream irrigation needs has never even been entertained yet millions are spent annually to maintain and improve the Oliver Canal irrigation system. This is a 'lack of duty of care' on the part of the Province! They are fully compensating Provincial entities and Municipalities for flood damages such as erosion and wharves yet damages to private property erosion and wharves are being summarily refused. What possible logic allows this?

I'm collecting names of those who have directly and indirectly suffered damages (loss of income, private property erosion, wharves, pumping systems, etc.) for the purposes of a class action suit (see post: https://forums.castanet.net/viewtopic.php?f=116&t=73452 )

Do not include me in the "you" please. I fully understand the difference between wealth on paper and in fact.
Don't want iced up driveways and roads? Clean out the street drains and gutters. Used to be called "civic duty."
