Their response 28 out of 31 questions were responded to with the same quote:”In accordance with Board Ruling No. 33 (Filing IDA63066), Trans Mountain’s response provided sufficient information and detail for the Board in its consideration of the application and no further response is required.”
- Our cover letter stated we thought they addressed our questions and listed those.

- Several Years ago, I undertook to convert the racerocks.com website and the metchosinmarine.ca website to a WordPress centrally managed system ( CMS). This is an ongoing process since I had established an archive of thousands of images and files on the Race Rocks site which I have been running since 1999. In the last few months I have been changing the files of the Race Rocks Taxonomy and Image Gallery ( and adding new ones) Since there are over 400 files , this takes a while!
- In my daily walk with Ginger on Taylor Beach, I have been able to add some updates on the winter bird population as well as a few other species and events on the metchosinmarine.ca website.
- I have been working with Mike Fenger , chairman of the Board of Friends of Ecological Reserves in the production of our second round set of Information Requests to the Trans Mountain/Kinder Morgan Pipeline Expansion Project. The deadline was January 16. We now await the answers.

As we have done for many years, this year again we took part in the Christmas Bird Count at Race Rocks on December 28. Val George, an experienced birder spent the morning out there and in the process came up with the rarest find of the Sooke Area bird count, A Boreal Owl.
