I’m standing in front of the Ambleside Boat Launch, which received a stay of execution, as it were, a few days ago. Boaters in West Vancouver can continue to use the free boat launch along the Ambleside waterfront this summer after an about-face by district council. I have never used the boat launch myself but it certainly makes sense to me to have a boat launch here. We are a seaside community. Why wouldn’t we want to have an entry- point for boat owners to enjoy this area? There has been talk of having a waterfront seafood stand in this area and while it has been framed as an either/or dilemma, I hope it can become both/and. I for one would like to have both a boat launch and a waterfront seafood stand.
