Just when we thought the Kitsilano Coast Guard Base closure drama was over, enter the mysterious memo. According to an internal federal government email obtained by Global News, the sale of three Metro Vancouver sites may well be the reason behind the hasty closing of the Kitsilano Coast Guard base last week.
Then there’s the contradictory sequence wherein that the government said that closing the base would save $700,000 a year. They followed this by announcing they’re about to invest $6.6 million in a coast guard station in Burin, N.L., population 2,470.
Having trouble keeping it all straight? Check out this handy timeline of Kitsilano Coast Guard Base closure events, “What the heck happened to the Kitsilano Coast Guard Station,” by Paul Sullivan in Metro Canada.
