WHEREAS the BCTFA and the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (“Highways”) have in their sole determination, authorized Salt Spring Transit to be the sole corporate or personal body on Salt Spring Island to apply for use of BCTFA lands on Salt Spring, and

WHEREAS BCTFA has failed to adequately regulate, and/or Salt Spring Transit has failed to request authority from BCTFA to implement parking regulations under its legislated mandate, and

WHEREAS the aforesaid failure is significantly impacting local merchants’ ability to earn a living, due to vehicles being parked overnight, all day and long term within the Ganges Area, thereby preventing many customers from shopping,

THEREFORE the undersigned merchants and citizens hereby petition the BCTFA and Salt Spring Transit to authorize and fulfill, through their mutual agreement, Salt Spring Transit’s mandate to operate, maintain and regulate parking spaces in the Ganges Area.
