A Brief Heads Up from Doug Draper at Niagara At Large
Posted August 8th, 2016 on Niagara At Large
Niagara, Ontario – n case you missed getting this news on Facebook earlier this August 8th, Jon Epp, one of two of Niagara”s up and coming documentary filmmakers along with Stacey Koudys, will be on the Tim Denis Radio Show on
CKTB 610 AM this Tuesday, August 9th at 7:50 in the morning to discuss the duo’s ongoing work on a documentary – dubbed the ‘Paradise Project – on a growing citizen movement in this region to save the Thundering Waters Forest in Niagara Falls from urban development.
If you miss the CKTB interview with Jon, Niagara At Large will do its best to get a podcast link for it on our online news site here as soon as possible this Tuesday.
I have a feeling, however, that the ratings will be high for this radio segement, given the growing numbers of citizens joining the fight to save these hundreds of acres of forest, savannah and wetland in Niagara Falls from development by a China government-sponsored agent with the support of a number of our municipal politicians.
Those who should listen the most to what Jon and others in the community have to say on this issue include our municipal and provincial political representatives in Niagara, along with the politically appointed board members and executive administrators of the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority.
But will these NPCA cronies stop listening to the sound of their own voices accusing others of engaging in “misstatements”, “untruths” and “defamatory comments” to give a serious listen to the other side? If they did, they might learn something about why it is important to conserve what is left of Niagara’s natural heritage.
If you have not yet seen segments of the Jon and Stacey’s documentary work on this issue posted by the filmmakers on a new website they launched and on Niagara At Large this past Saturday, August 6th, here it is again for you to click on and watch.
