Capital Assets Discussion at AGM

29 April 2019 A question was raised at the AGM. What comprised the Capital Asset listed as Land for $4848? After reviewing documentation from the 50’s and 60’s as well as The Brief History of the GYC as written by Jack Doherty, I concluded the following: The $ 4848 for Land is comprised of, but not necessarily limited to, $2500 for the purchase of the majority of the current GYC property in 1953, additional small adjoining lots (1960’s) and the small lot at White Cloud Island (1962). Although this $4848 certainly under represents any current market value of our properties, one could bear in mind our title with the Canada Revenue Agency. The GYC is a non-profit corporation and thus assets are not appreciated or depreciated for accounting purposes. Essentially the prices at the time of purchase are represented by the amounts posted on the Capital Assets list. It perhaps is worth stating that the club’s assets are fully represented on the insurance policy for property. The most recent MPAC document lists the Club grounds at 2475 3rd Ave West Assessed in 2020 for $ 1,174,000 and White Cloud Island for $ 53,000. I hope this provides the answer. Please feel free to send questions or comments,
