Boundary Bay Cannery 1989

Just last week I walked by that walking trail in Surrey. Where the slough meets the estuary and the low tide reveals the mudflats. The presence of that beautiful Cannery can still be felt there. What a shame they had demolished such an interesting historical landmark.

This sensitive watercolour which I painted at the side of the trail years ago. Still captured the uniqueness of the wooden structure, and the many storms which it had too endure. At least the elements spared the Cannery and left it with dignity.

Those corrupt politicians never understood its meaning and certain greedy people wanted an unobstructed view.
