Apparently, the Mayor of Wolfe Island, Jim VandenHoek ordered the “86 Hands” Art display quickly removed. This was done unceremoniously, under the cloak of darkness in the middle of the night. The stakes that held the hands were sloppily chopped off and left jutting out of the ground. Even the rock with “86” marked on it was taken away.
We would like to offer to purchase these pieces of art from you. This is a serious offer. Please contact us.
Last September a resident of Wolfe Island was issued a legal gag order for criticizing the way this development was being handled. Now I see even silent protests are banned from Your Island, Mr. Vanden Hoek.
