De la Cruz was celebrating a friend’s birthday on a party bus that stopped near the Santa Monica Pier at about 1 a.m. on Nov. 3, 2017. When she and her friends got out of the bus to go to the bathroom, some men in the parking lot got into a confrontation with one of her male friends and started shooting at the group.De la Cruz was hit by several gunshots and the bus driver drove her to the Santa Monica Police Station. She was later transported to a hospital and died there.Relatives and friends of de la Cruz filed a lawsuit last November against the City of Santa Monica and the party bus company, Lion Limousine Corp., alleging that both entities were liable in her death. According to the lawsuit, de la Cruz and her friends told the driver they were reluctant to leave the bus because they saw men in the parking lot who appeared to be gang members, but the driver told them he would only let them use the restroom near the Pier.The lawsuit also alleges that SMPD officers allowed de la Cruz to lie on the ground in front of the police station after she suffered gunshot wounds and did not offer help. Arrest records show Lee has been arrested on felony charges three times and twice for misdemeanors.SMPD could not provide additional information on Lee’s connection to the [email protected] :crimeCrime WatchNewsSanta Monicashare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentMan arrested for trying to kill his girlfriendJohn Wayne Cancer Institute at Providence Saint John’s Health Center Becomes First in U.S. to Offer a Non-invasive, Outpatient Prostate Cancer Treatment Using New Focal One Breakthrough HIFU TechnologyYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall8 hours agoBriefsLos Angeles Sheriff’s deputy accused of destroying evidence of 2019 assaultAssociated Press12 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor19 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter19 hours agoFeaturedNewsFeud deepens between Villanueva and Los Angeles officials over handling of Venice homelessClara Harter1 day agoBriefsNewsSEATTLE Feds plan to curtail West Coast salmon fishing to help orcasGuest Author2 days agolast_img read more

New Kootenay plan secures quality fishing for all anglers

first_img The predominant wild fish species pursued by stream anglers within the East Kootenays are Bull Trout and Westlope Cutthroat Trout. Regulatory changes to Kootenay angling management announced Thursday will help ensure a quality fishing experience, reduce crowding on popular rivers and support trout conservation.The main change is implementation of a booking system for non-resident anglers on three “classified waters” in the Kootenays: the Wigwam River, Skookumchuck Creek and Michel Creek.All three of these fisheries have seen non-resident, non-guided angler use exceed targets, creating overcrowding on the river as well as pressure on fish populations.“The Kootenay Angling Management Plan and the changes to the region’s classified waters together strike the appropriate balance between access and conservation,” said Steve Thomson, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.”This will ensure this area remains a quality fishery for all anglers now and in the future.”Under the new system, a set amount of non-resident, non-guided angler days will be made available through the existing online angling licensing system.Selections will be made on a first-come, first-serve system, ensuring all non-resident anglers have an equal opportunity.Once these days are sold, non-resident anglers will have to book through a licensed angling guide to fish on these waters. “The Kootenay Angling Management Plan is a major step forward to maintain resident priority angling in the East Kootenay. We appreciate the efforts of all those who have contributed to this important initiative.”Angler-guided days have been increased on the Wigwam and Skookumchuck in anticipation of additional interest from non-residents seeking access to these waters. These additional days will become available later in the season.The new system will ensure resident anglers maintain priority access on streams that have been over-subscribed in recent years, while still allowing non-residents ample opportunity to access these high-demand systems.B.C.’s classified waters are productive wild trout streams in wilderness and semi-wilderness settings, which provide unique and high quality fishing opportunities that are in high demand but limited supply.The classified waters system was created to help protect the quality of fishing opportunities these waters provide. The system includes limits to guided and non-guided angling, reflects resident priority, and requires special classified water licences.Together these measures support stock assessment, habitat protection and enhancement, as well as compliance and enforcement.The changes are part of the implementation of the Kootenay Angling Management Plan is also being released today. Other measures being enacted under the Kootenay Angling Management Plan include: Enhanced patrols by both conservation officers and river guardians. Reviewing opportunities for additional boat launch facilities to improve angler access on the Elk River.The Kootenay Angling Management Plan and the resulting changes to the Kootenay classified water system is the result of intensive stakeholder engagement over the past decade, and incorporates feedback from First Nations, resident anglers, professional angling guides and the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC.”It was refreshing to participate in a positive and productive consultation process involving such a diverse group of angling stakeholders,” said Matt Jennings, executive director, BC Fishing Resorts and Outfitters Association.”Hopefully the changes made to the plan will ensure these fisheries stay world class for years to come.”Quick Facts: The Kootenay-Boundary region receives the highest number of non-B.C. resident anglers in the province, and the second highest number of non-resident alien (international) anglers. The previous classified waters system in the Kootenays was first established in 2006.last_img read more
