Vancouver city councillor: land titles show Kits Base property is federal crown land

After the Department of Fisheries and Oceans told CKNW the land the Kits Coast Guard base sits on is owned by the province and leased to the federal government, a Vancouver city councillor says that doesn’t match the information he has.

Councillor Kerry Jang.

“I did some looking around and I found in all documents I could find that it is actually federal crown land and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans is the department on record.”

This comes after the BC Federation of Labour obtained a federal government memo that seemed to suggest the property may be for sale and part of a land deal.

The DFO says the idea of Kits base being included in a land deal is “factually inaccurate”.
