SLIPP sets sights on derelict docksAbandoned derelict docks
between Salmon Arm and Sicamous, and in Blind Bay, will be removed this fall.
The multi-agency Shus-wap Lake Integrated Plan-ning Process (SLIPP) is re-sponding to public com-plaints and foreshore map-ping, which revealed there is a large number of aban-doned derelict docks in
Shuswap and Mara lakes. These structures can cre-
ate safety issues for boaters, impede public access along the shoreline and reduce the esthetic values of the lake.
As well, these docks can have significant impacts on fish habitat, by damaging spawning and rearing grounds through changes to water circulation patterns which are important for maintaining quality habitat.
Derelict and abandoned dock removal is part of the
SLIPP shoreline restoration program and member agen-cies have committed re-sources toward finding and removing the structures.
With SLIPPs Oct. 18 an-nouncement comes a re-minder to property owners that all docks and bouys must be authorized under the Provincial Land Act to ensure they meet construc-tion and design require-ments.
As well, no new dock or buoy should be installed
without checking with the Columbia Shuswap Re-gional District to ensure compliance with the newly adopted Lakes Zoning By-law No. 900.
Property owners are re-sponsible for ensuring dock structures are authorized, properly maintained and se-cured and, if no longer re-quired, removed and appro-priately disposed.

sign and construction re-quirements, refer to the FrontCounter BC (FCBC) website at www.frontcoun-terbc.gov.bc.ca or call toll free at 1-877-855-3222.

Greyhound Canadas proposed cuts to ser-vice in British Colum-bia will have a nominal impact on the Shus-wap.
The bus service has applied to the Passen-ger Transportation Board to reduce ser-vices on 15 inter-city routes, as minimum daily service levels are set provincially by the board.
In its application to the board, Greyhound states intercity bus pas-senger companies have been experiencing seri-ous losses for the last number of years. Greyhound vice-presi-dent Stuart Kendrick says in B.C. alone, Greyhound lost $14 million in 2011 on the
scheduled passenger operations.
Similar losses have been incurred in previ-ous years. These losses are no longer sustain-able, states the appli-cation.
The only proposed route cut that would impact the Shuswap, however, is Grey-hounds Alberta border and Highway 1 to Van-couver route. The com-pany is asking to elimi-nate one eastbound trip from Vancouver to Kamloops. In addition, Greyhound is also seeking to eliminate one eastbound and one westbound trip between Salmon Arm and Van-couver. Sicamous would not be affected.
The westbound bus departs Salmon Arm at 7:30 a.m. and arrives in Vancouver at 3:05 p.m.
Chase and Sorrento are stops on this trip.
This cut would leave six scheduled trips for this route, and two for Chase and Sorrento.
The eastbound bus departs Vancouver at 12:30 and arrives in Salmon Arm at 9:05 p.m.
To address Grey-hounds losses, Kend-rick has written B.C. Transportation Minis-ter Mary Polak asking that the industry be de-regulated.
Polak has said she is aware inter-city pas-senger bus service is at risk in the province, and that ministry staff are looking at options.
Its obvious from what theyre saying that they need to make adjustments, or theyre going to have to pull out of the whole thing,
Polak told Black Press.The deadline for
public comments was Oct. 17.
However, for the Al-berta and Highway 1 to Vancouver route, inter-ested parties have until Wednesday, Oct. 24 to submit written com-ments to BC Passenger Transportation Board, Box 9850, Stn. Prov. Govt., Victoria, B.C., V8W9T5.
Comments may also be sent by fax to 250-953-3788, or by email to email@example.com Comments must note the application number: 3 0 5 - 1 2 / R o u t e s A1,A2(a),A2(b).
