Send an email to HarbourEdge with just a click.

Dear << First Name >> << Last Name >>,

I hope you are staying safe and healthy during the ongoing COVID health crisis. I realize that for many of you it has disrupted your normal lives and routines.

However, I am hoping that you are still concerned about the issue of a possible subdivision and sale of the common land including the green building and will take the following action to let the CEO of HarbourEdge, Larry Dunn, know that you oppose any such action.

To make it as easy as possible for you to communicate directly to him, I’ve built an online form that will send him a pre-written email with a click of a button.

Please go to this link to Sign and Send The Letter

You are invited to add your own comments as well.

Thank you for your concern and action on this important matter to all owners of property at Abbecombec Ocean Village.

NOTE: Please enter just one owner’s first and last name and your lot number. The verification script will search for an exact match in the database which is taken from the Land Registry data I compiled. If one name doesn’t go through, please try your partner’s if you have your deed in more than one name. If you still have a problem please email me at stan@abbecombec.ca and I’ll check the data for you. This verification is necessary, to be sure that only actual owners submit the form and also to prevent multiple submissions.

A Simple Request

Buildings on the pond

In order to make it as easy as possible for lot owners at Abbecombec to indicate their opposition to any potential abrogation by HarbourEdge of our license agreement regarding the common lands, such as subdividing and selling a portion to anyone, I’ve posted a form below for you to fill in and submit.

The most urgent and current important issue is the potential subdivision and sale of the portion containing the green building. This simply cannot be allowed.

An urgent message to all Abbecombec Lot Owners

Emailed March 17, 2020

My fellow Abbecombec lot owners, it is with deep concern and urgency that I reach out to all of you today.

It was announced some time ago, via the Facebook Group, that HarbourEdge is considering subdividing off a portion of our common lands, specifically a parcel containing the green building, aka the Rec building (the building is specifically mentioned in our License Agreement as part of the common lands.) They allegedly plan on conveying ownership to Mr. Ralph Bayers, together with the nearby parcel which contains the brown building. (HarbourEdge owns this lot, PID 40580094, separately. It is not common land.)

You have the right to an attorney.

The Lily Pond

“You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights I have just read to you? With these rights in mind, do you wish to speak to me?”

To all law firms practicing in Halifax Regional Municipality:

It appears that we, the residents and owners of Abbecombec Ocean Village, are in imminent threat of losing a significant piece of our common lands in the center of the wetlands at Clam Bay.

The Fate of the Green Building

is Now Officially Unknown

Note: If you are already familiar with the issue and want to show your support quickly, there is now a more direct way to indicate your opposition to the subdivision and sale of a piece of the common land here: A Simple Request

Update March 14, 2020

I still intend to pursue this issue. I am NOT going to give up. Neither Ralph Bayer or anyone else should be able to obtain any piece of our common lands. Ever. I hope the rest of the owners agree and will join me as a group to formally take legal action if necessary.

For now, I ask you indicate your agreement with my Demand Letter and Settlement Offer (in letter and below) by submitting the below form. (there’s another one at the bottom after you read the background article from October. All the legal documents and opinions are also linked below.)

Looking for an Angel

I’ve concluded that the only way to ensure that Abbecombec is managed properly and developed responsibly and that the common lands, the marshes and beaches, and the natural beauty those provide that makes it such a special place are preserved for the future is to buy it, or better yet find someone to buy it who has the means and desire to do so.

Thus I need an ‘angel,’ an investor not interested in making gobs of money, but instead committed to owning and preserving this special place as a legacy for future generations to enjoy. There is a good chance of making a good chunk of any investment back in time, and even turning a profit, but the main goal you must have is to make this place the best it can be, and ensure its preservation for the future. That will be our legacy to create together. Continue reading “Looking for an Angel”

Before & After

Last summer’s ‘work’ at the point was disappointing to say the least. My complaints and requests for explanation of why this was done and why the cut brush was not cleaned up had gone unanswered and unaddressed for months. When a reply was finally obtained it was unsatisfactory to say the least. It was claimed that no one else had complained and therefore they were fine with the outcome and the matter was considered closed.

I am livid. Not just because of the unneeded and permanent destruction of a beautiful and treasured resource but because of the initial stonewalling and finally their refusal to take responsibility or admit this is a tragic mess or even  finish cleaning it up. Since they deemed it not a problem, they refused addressing how to avoid this again in the future by communicating with a designated owner’s rep beforehand as had been agreed.
