This is the fifth in a series of seven posts. The intention is to provide a transparent, truthful and clear accounting of the facts.
These are Squamish Nation responses to some of the public statements made by members of the Partnership (Dennis L. Baker, Frank J. Baker, Darlene Garrick, Pamela Baker, Wayne C. Baker and Wade S. Baker and we understand, Lucy Emily Baker) that operated the Capilano Mobile and RV Park.
MEMBER OF PARTNERSHIP:
“Your Council, on your behalf, notes that we owe them half a million dollars? “They have made over 3 million from the Park in the last 3 years?”
SQUAMISH NATION RESPONSE:
The issue is that the Partnership owes over a half a million dollars in unpaid rent, with further damages and court costs remaining to be assessed. They have refused to make any voluntary payments to the Nation. In keeping with our fiduciary obligations to the membership, Chiefs and Council continue to pursue repayment of the unpaid rent by the Partnership. This is money that is owed to the Nation as a whole and ought to be available for the benefit of the Nation as a whole.
