Howe SoundShoreline preservation is becoming a greater focus for communities along our coast as populations increase and with it new waterfront developments.  Islands Trust and West Vancouver are focusing on preserving the integrity of the natural shorelines of  for future generations. The Georgia Strait Alliance has a new initiative  that focuses on the waterfront.

On Bowen Island, residents are pushing back on docks currently being built by the developer at Roger Curtis Point.  Stop the Docks Campaign highlights the challenges for local governments when higher levels of government shift priorities.  Land Use planning and creation of bylaws to protect our shorelines are needed and encouraged by organizations focused on shoreline preservation.

Roger Curtis Point is known by most locals as a beautiful jewel of the coastline and the community is fighting hard to preserve and protect this precious area.  To find out more http://stopthedocks.ca/big-dock-video/:

    The magnificent wild shoreline of Cape Roger Curtis on Bowen is about to be forever lost to future generations of every stripe, and from every national origin. Huge docks that are proposed, and in fact 4 of which have been “approved”, will, in themselves forever ruin the majesty and the marine health of this island’s cape coast. If not stopped, they will set the precedent for a further perhaps 16 beach fronting properties along the Cape’s shores.
    Please come one an all to the “Midsummer Caper at the Cape”
