Shearwater Resort Reaches Business and Real Estate Agreement With The Trump Organization - Massive Changes to B.C.'s Central Coast Ahead.

Shearwater Resort and Marina reached an agreement in principal this past Thursday accepting a surprizing and unsolicited bid to acquire all assets of the Shearwater Marine Group by The Trump Organization - including the world famous luxury sport fishing and eco-adventure resort on Denny Island, near Bella Bella, British Columbia

Vancouver, British Columbia | April 1, 2016 | Sport fishing, eco-adventure enthusiasts, as well as  luxurious property speculators and passionately misguided political supporters from both sides of the Canada / United States border have reason to celebrate as Shearwater Marine Group of Richmond, BC has seemingly entered into an agreement of acquisition with The Trump Organization of New York, NY.

For 69 years, Shearwater Resort and Marina has grown into one of the most important maritime communities in British Columbia. Its strategic location on the central coast has made it a standalone marine, community and tourism destination. This genuine adventure satellite resort (Canada’s last remaining 100% owned company town) was perfectly primed for an acquisition with its world class services and experiences. It was only a matter of time before a savvy real estate group focused on unilateral North American growth honed in on this unsurpassed real estate investment opportunity.

In order to suitably celebrate the occasion, The Trump Organization has briefly stepped away from the 2016 Presidential campaign south of the border to announce several changes affecting Shearwater effective immediately.  

“Some of the most passionate North American sport fishing and eco-adventure enthusiasts visit Shearwater each year and experience an unparalleled and unforgettable vacation” says an unnamed source close to Donald Trump who has gone off record to make this quote. “Our organization sees the long term value in helping Donald, and his followers enlarge the vision to ‘Make North America Great Again’, and we are committed to investing heavily to realize the vision.”

The well-greased machine that makes The Trump Organization move has already unveiled several new initiatives beginning with the re-branding of Shearwater Resort as 'The Gateway to the Great American Liberty Rainforest' and has already started the necessary legal paperwork with the World Wildlife Foundation (W.W.F.) to officially rename the Kermode Bear (or more commonly known 'Spirit Bear') to the 'Freedom Bear'. It also intends to break ground this summer to begin construction of a 99 storey hotel and condo building called 'The Big D', and will begin immediately exporting Shearwater's recently discovered Artesian well water to be sold in the United States as 'Tears of my Enemies' water to combat the effects of prolonged dihydrogen monoxide consumption (DHMO) to every American man, woman, and child. 

"It came as quite a surpize this morning when the announcement was made, I had to take a moment to comb down" said Michael Maenck, Sales and Marketing Manager of Shearwater Resort. "This certainly represents a new direction for the business, our region, our nations, and sensible good judgement everywhere."

Shearwater Resort and Marina operates year round, but between May and September it is a hotbed of activity as people from around the world book their incredible sport fish and eco-adventure vacations. Visitors may now feel some sort of uneasy comfort knowing that the once 'Untamed, Untouched, and Unbelievable' Shearwater Resort will be known as the only Trump endorsed 'Tamed, Touched, and Believable' destination on the Central Coast of beautiful British Columbia, outside of any future binational wall if Trump is elected president.
