“Come forth into the light of things, let nature be your teacher.”
Our great glacial wilderness in the Columbia Mountains is sensitive and vital region essential to the healthy survival of the grizzly bear population. I believe that the imminent disruption and degradation of the environment that would result from the Jumbo Glacier Resort project will result in irrepairable damage. The following is a letter I sent through the Keep Jumbo Wild websight which I came to through Wildsight to voice my oppositon to the proposed project:
Dear Premier Clark, Minister Thomson, Minister Bell, Assistant Deputy Minister Walters and MLA Norm MacDonald:
I strongly oppose the Jumbo Glacier Resort project because it will be detrimental to the overall grizzly bear population in the Columbia Mountains. I do not believe that the value of more remote, difficult-to-access resort real estate is greater than the value of our Kootenay wilderness and its intact wildlife populations.
I believe that the Jumbo resort proposal is unsustainable and will damage the glaciers, watershed and wildlife of the Jumbo Valley and beyond.
After nearly 20 years, it’s time to make a final decision about this project, and that decision has to be ‘no’.
Please advise me that you have received and noted my comments.
I’ve had a lot to oppose of late but I truly believe in each and every letter of oppostion.
Today’s “stone” is Day 76 I say no, and I say it again, as long as my heart beats, my only yes will be pro-nature
