Monster 1,098 carat stone unearthed in Botswana

A 1,098.30 carat diamond was recovered in June from the south pipe at the Jwaneng mine. It is the largest gem quality diamond  since diamonds were discovered in Botswana in 1967. The diamond is the world’s third-largest and one of only four stones over 1,000 carats ever unearthed. The 3,106-carat Cullinan, discovered in South Africa in 1905; the 1,758-carat Sewelo, unearthed at Lucara’s Karowe mine in Botswana in April 2019; and the 1,111 Lesedi la Rona, also found in Botswana in 2015.

Ralph van der Walle - Confidence man

Purchasers have a right to walk away because Mike Fowler did not disclose the $8m judgement against him. It was his numbered company, ahuck, doh. The document was amended in August. ( Folks can walk away with their money, as long as they do it pronto.

Posts have on Facebook disclosing the death of Mike Fowler have been censored. He was a principal of 'Beach House at Saratoga General Partner Inc.' There are no SEDAR filings of Fowler's demise either. Nondisclosure of a material fact is a securities offense.

Mike Fowler
Mr. Mike Fowler dropped dead around Sept 11. In late 2017 Mr. Mike Fowler was sued successfully for $8m after buyers of the property he peddled found out only 33% of the 51 acres could be developed. His warranty breach came from a sale to SmartCentres Inc., Salmon Arm Shopping Centres Limited, and Calloway Reit (Salmon Arm) Inc. on Oct. 15, 2007 for $14.7m.

The plan is 29 units and 1 'caretaker unit'.
The 30 units of the 'Beach House at Saratoga' are drawing water from Black Creek watershed. In order to mitigate draw, above ground cisterns are proposed. The area doesn't have infrastructure for high density development. The boys tried for 36 units and were foiled. Sewage is septic drainage with facebook claiming a treatment plant is imminent.
The group's GC (General Contractor) isn't. Island West Coast Developments Ltd., a well established and respected builder, was shown on the development permit. They have indicated they have nothing to do with 'Beach House at Saratoga'. Without a general contractor in place (and building permit) these tards are whistling out their assholes.

Lot 1, District Lot 221, Comox District, Plan VIP76726, PID 025-897-977 (9022 Clarkson Avenue)
The approved development application for 9022 Clarkson Ave. HERE

The development permit says the project must be "substantially started" before March 30th 2022, 6 months hence. Boyos require a $10m+ builder's loan NOW. The claim to be 'sold out' is for the benefit of this lender. UNLESS construction is "substantially started" the permit will expire, voiding the contracts, and these dopes will need to start over.

Condos are 10 to 15 feet above ground.
At a minimum, hundreds of steel piles need to be driven to an unknown depth, taking months.

Beach House at Saratoga General Partner Inc. was incorporated Aug 17, 2017.
Saratoga land was purchased from 1069585 B.C. Ltd. (an insider) for $1.5m (a $400k markup) There is a $800k mortgage carried at prime plus 6. 9022 Clarkson Ave. is zoned Tourist Commercial One. (TC-1) Owners may live in their condo no more than 6 months in a year. Capitalists require $10m to $12m to break ground. Boys don't have it.
A-holes are STILL telling the public their project is 'Sold Out'. We say not likely.
While claiming condos are sold out @$700 (sq ft), assholes listed 3 condos on MLS for more than that. MLS® 881336 for unit #28 @ $759k ($761 sf), MLS® 881337 for unit #23 @ $869k ($816 sf), and MLS® 881398 for Unit #6, @ $859k. ($807 sf)
"We are excited to announce that The Beach House is now Sold Out.
"We welcome our new owners and can’t wait to build something amazing together! Stay tuned for construction updates and The Beach House Resort updates. Giving you an opportunity to be one of the first to book your vacations here in 2023. Thanks everyone and we’ll be seeing you at the Beach!"

Saratoga Oceanfront Ltd. was incorporated in 2014. It was sued in 2016 for $762,384 by Liberty Investments Limited. 0907144 B.C. sued it for $151k. Saratoga Oceanfront Ltd. was dissolved in 2017.

"Can. Corp. is involved as part of the General Partnership Group developing the project."
How does a wood frame, 1000 sq foot, 2 bedroom strata condo built on piles in a windy flood plain in Northern Vancouver Island for $700k to appear (maybe) in 2023 sound? It doesn't matter because they are sold out. We pointed out to the promoter that claiming '95% sold' was impossible because that would be 28.5 units, and this is strata making half units impossible. The next day they claimed 100% sold.

" Over 50% sold!"

"Over 50% sold in ten days." Facebook on June 3.

This operation is NOT connected to the established Cancorp Property Group in Calgary.
One of their projects is "Multi-family Lands (Salmon Arms BC)" One assumes that ought to be Salmon Arm, B.C.

Photos are stock and appear hundreds of times on the internet. These cowboys did NOT build the projects displayed in their promotional materials.

This photo has nothing to do with "Cancorp".
It's clear these confidence men a) have never built anything, and b) have no problem pretending otherwise.

The photo used for "The Summit (View Royal Victoria BC)" is "Coho Living" and that project was built by Omicron.
Corporate 'Head Office' is #128 - 6033 London Rd Richmond, BC. There is no historical record of any business ever being there. No business license applications, no unit sales, and that location hasn't been offered for rent. Unit numbers don't seem to go that high. The highest shown is #118.

The marsh is adjacent to Miracle Beach Provincial Park and alteration of the habitat to reduce mosquito breeding isn't an option.
Adria Cowan's family moved into their dream house near Miracle Beach on Vancouver Island in 2018. The dream became a nightmare. The area's summer mosquito problem has reached the point where they can't step outside. The Black Creek salt marsh near Miracle Beach is prime habitat for breeding mosquitoes. Experts say the increase is due to increased development disrupting mosquito habitats, and climate change.
'The developer' tried to unload 'sold out' units.
