They can’t wait for government action, so citizens have stepped forward to clear the beach at Saanich’s Cadboro Bay of some 10 or more derelict boats.
Volunteers unwilling to wait for government action have mobilized to clean up 10 or more derelict boats despoiling the Oak Bay side of Cadboro Bay.
They plan to gather on May 13 for the cleanup, and are especially concerned about a 36-foot-long steel-hulled wreck.
“We’re 99 per cent there,” in terms of organization to get it done, said Eric Dahli of the Cadboro Bay Residents Association, who has spearheaded the removal.
There were 16 wrecks just a few weeks back, but owners appear to have dragged some if them away, he said.
