Carmanah Lights sounds like west coast cigarettes or low calorie beer for environmentalists, but they're actually a bright idea from a new Victoria Company.It started five years ago when David Green was sailing back from Fiji where he was teaching. On the return voyage he spent a lot of time thinking about what to do next. A partner in Axys a group of Sydney high-tech firms, he had taken the family to the South Pacific after selling his stake in the businesses.One day at sea, the light went on, figuratively.
Running the perimeter of the property at 203 Harbour Road, just North of the Ocean Point Resort on the Esquimalt side of Johnson Street Bridge, is a chain link fence.
