A home of historical significance in West Bay was recently featured in the Times Colonist, reporting on the possibility that the house may soon face demolition.

From the article:

“We know that we have some very beautiful heritage buildings and we really have to come to grips with — are there ways that we can help others preserve those?” she said.
“It isn’t something that we have fully considered to the point of giving tax breaks or those sorts of things, but maybe that’s an option.”
