These two photos are to help orient you to the ones that will follow
1926 aerial photo with the Tsawout ditch system shown (built in WWI by the military) In 1906 Puckle Farm had an 18 acre oat field where the arrow points - this is where in 2010 the Cordova Strategy claims it is a salt marsh. This photo was taken 10 years before the ditch system was built by the District of Saanich on this land for mosquito control.
1987 - the most recent major breach of the sea wall. The story should be read to give an idea of how quickly a breach rips open the sea wall and the destruction caused. This is relevant because there is a breach to the natural berm at the north end of the man made sea wall. Central Saanich Council and a 500 signature public petition have called for that breach to be fixed before this happens. The Cordova Strategy which was managed by CRD staff, has a goal to dismantle the seawall to allow the park to be flooded like this.
