The regional director for the area that includes Johnsons Landing remains extremely disappointed there’s no compensation for some homeowners who lost property in the 2012 landslide.
Those who had secondary homes got nothing because the disaster relief legislation doesn’t permit it.
Andy Shadrack is repeating suggestions the government has double-standards because homeowners were bought out after a landslide in North Vancouver in 2005.
The province says those circumstances were different and a special damage program was in place there.
Shadrack says a buy-out for the 12 worst affected landowners in Johnsons Landing would cost around $3 million … what he calls “chump change.”
