Submitted by: NS NOPE

The evidence:

An NS NOPE member is a co-owner in two local water sport businesses that have paid the DNV close to $700K in concession fees in the past five years—a significant source of income for the district. Water sports provide year-round opportunities for recreation as well as providing hundreds of jobs in high season.
Members experienced a lack of communication and notification during the Burnaby oil spill in 2007 and are concerned of this happening again.
