After the Department of Fisheries and Oceans told CKNW the land the Kits Coast Guard base sits on is owned by the province and leased to the federal government, a Vancouver city councillor says that doesn't match the information he has.
Councillor Kerry Jang.
"I did some looking around and I found in all documents I could find that it is actually federal crown land and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans is the department on record."
This comes after the BC Federation of Labour obtained a federal government memo that seemed to suggest the property may be for sale and part of a land deal.
The DFO says the idea of Kits base being included in a land deal is "factually inaccurate".
