Is someone screening genitals at the entrance? Sucks to be the manager to have that conversation with a customer!

Most people are not buying into it.  That's quite a ratio.  CHEK and the lawyer had to turn off replies.

I don’t quite understand this. This person says she “identifies” as a woman. But the article never tells us her biological sex.

The gym has a “women’s only” section but then the spokesperson says: “It is important for us to emphasize that our dress code only mandates fitness attire throughout all areas of our facilities, without regard to orientation, culture, or personal preference,” he stated.

The video is mostly the “victim” yelling at the other woman to leave.

Is it not a staff member asking the woman to leave?

The last part is, where she says she will call the cops. The rest before that is the victim berating the complainant.

Quote from the article.         

 

"The woman proceeded to get into a shouting match with staff about Khangura being in the gym. She insisted that Khangura is not a female."

The Oak Bay Recreation Centre Pool will be closed for two months during the summer for facility upgrades.

The district said the closing from July 1 to Sept. 2 is for an upgrade for the pool ­dehumidifier and air handling system and ­routine maintenance and repairs.

“Although much of the work of this shutdown will not be visually noticeable once completed, the upgrades to the air handling systems are absolutely necessary to support a healthy environment for your exercise and water play needs,” it said in a statement.

We put three 10’ seacans on small concrete footings on clear ground and required five different permits. Nothing can ever happen fast. Government won’t let it.

Wow! A 10' shipping container is only 7.4 metres square or 80 square feet. I thought anything under 10 metres square or 96 square feet is not considered a structure and subsequently does not require a building permit in British Columbia.

 

I am currently building a tiny office less than 96 square feet that I believe I could put almost anywhere without any sort of permit.

 

5 permits? Not just 1? I know that the use of the structure sometimes plays a role...like for housing. What am I missing?

 

Here are the CRD guidelines. https://www.crd.bc.c...its-inspections

They are considered accessory units. CRD said “one you can get away with, more than that we come knocking”.

We require a development permit from the CRD, permit from the islands trust as well as a variance due to being a few cm too close to the building in one spot, a permit from moti due to setback from the roadway (the zoning allows for zero setback but moti has their own rules), a permit from the archaeological branch due to the Fulford Bowl, a permit from technical safety bc or whatever they are called now for the electrical. That’s five, right?

Can you not just put them on wheels and call them temporary trailers?

Nope. They aren’t actually attached to the ground at all.

Crd said they may even require a permit for each of them because they aren’t connected haha. We will find out in 6-8 weeks. It’s only been a year so what’s another two months.
