Remark 134

by in Nature September 23, 2020

“I would like the trail head that was cut off when Dee Cee [Road] was paved up to be returned to normal access so you don’t have to be a mountain goat to get to the trail… this trail existed before CRC was developed. When Dee Cee road was paved the trail head was removed, the only way to access the trail is to scramble up the vertical cut rock face which was created when the road was widened and paved.”

“I wasn’t aware of this about the DeeCee trail connection I will look into this with the Municipality…” (Candy Ho, COB)

Remark 214

by in Trust September 23, 2020

“I have no doubt that Candy is a lovely human being… When someone (whether it’s a person or a developer in this case) wields that much power and influence over a community they need to be held to a higher degree of responsibility than just your average person.”

Remark 2

by in Consultation September 23, 2020

[Candy Ho] “is clearly trying to make the Cape something everyone will enjoy while protecting nature and keeping the investors’ interests… I don’t think anyone else would be better suited to developing the structure for the future community at the Cape.”

Remark 17

by in Consultation September 23, 2020

“I agree … that this has huge implications for all future generations, and no doubt I do sometimes feel that the whole world’s weight is on my shoulders. However … I see this as an opportunity to [change] a hurtful story and create a better outcome that has the potential to be a positive legacy if I can hold a trusting space with you, and lead a respectful process.”
(Candy Ho, COB)

Remark 24

by in Docks September 23, 2020

“I apologize on behalf of our group for the hurt that those docks have created, and the trauma of disappointment when the rezoning effort was aborted… I cannot turn that back, nor can I ask owners to tear down the docks. I fully understand why the community isn’t happy about rarely used or unused docks that are an eyesore in the midst of otherwise stunning shorelines.” (Candy Ho, COB)

Remark 213

by in Trust September 23, 2020

“I acknowledge history and I own mistakes on behalf of our shareholders but look at opportunities in the present, to create a better future, to make new history that we can all be proud of. The more people engage and participate, the more the island’s residents can know they had a hand in creating a proud legacy for all.” (Candy Ho, COB)

Remark 199

by in Trust September 23, 2020

“The bank was not giving us any more time to take another few years after our application was rescinded. Our economist, in tandem with the municipality’s, knew that 224 units was not a viable route with the amenities that the island wanted along with that number of units, based on the scenario our planner had designed for that particular density. It is possible it could have worked with a different plan for that density, but we truly didn’t have any more grace period from the bank. We had to proceed with the zoning that already was in place when we bought the land: large private estates, minimum 4 hectares.” (Candy Ho, COB)

Remark 209

by in Trust September 23, 2020

CEO Candy Ho has been canvassing the community for over a year, COB makes donations to local causes, the owners are participating in the sale of three lots because they understand how much it means to islanders. It is not a sacrifice, but it does make a positive rezoning plan financially more risky. (COB)
