A Precious Slice Of Niagara’s Natural Heritage To Save – Attend The August 23rd Public Meeting

Let Them Know You Care By Being There!

A Brief Call-Out from Niagara At Large publisher Doug Draper

Posted August 23rd, 2016 on Niagara At Large

Many of you may already know about roughly 500 acres of forest, savannah and wetlands located in the Niagara River watershed in Niagara Falls, Ontario growing numbers of residents across the region have come to know as the Thundering Waters Forest, and what certain others in politics and in the business of .paving over paradise have in store for it.jon august 23 rally

There was some encouraging news in recent days that at least some people in the City of Niagara Falls Planning Department has some questions and concerns about a massive urban development plan for this area. But it is ultimately up to the politicians on the city’s council to decide whether or not to approve the development, and municipal councils have had a record of voting for a development project, against the concerns of their own planners plenty of times in the past.

That is why it is so important for members of the public to remain engaged in the Thundering Waters Forest issues and to make certain you let members of the Niagara Falls city council know how you feel.

One important time to do that is this Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m. at Niagara Falls City Hall (you can find a map for the location for the city hall by doing a simple search on your computer).

Be there while it counts!

  1. In my opinion and hopefully in the opinion of other sane people who believe in a the definition of “DEMOCRACY” I say definition because in my opinion there are people in this Region, in this Province and Yes in this Country who feel they are totally entitled and they define DEMOCRACY as their private little game where they and only they win.
    I have watched the antics, heard of back door and under the table deals that completely ignore the rights of the honest tax paying citizens who foot the bills, Yes foot the BILLS, while others find and know ways to skirt around paying any taxes period in fact some corporations and firms are actually subsidized by our Corporate Governments, in essence the taxpayers.
    Bio-Diversity a term I first heard of from the NPCA and to those who don’t know the definition Niagara Peninsula “CONSERVATION” Authority with an Administration that in my opinion seems to have built themselves a grandiose “EMPIRE”, an EMPIRE where they cannot be questioned or audited by the taxpayers or group of taxpayers with a stake in the operation of this so called “CONSERVATION AUTHORITY”.
    I have recently delved into the NPCA Structure and wondered if it was just another “Old Boys Club” with twelve or so mayors from the surrounding communities sitting on the governance Board. Most of these mayors, not all, voted against the audit but most did and I for the life of me cannot understand their motives or reasoning…Should they have not claimed a conflict of interest and abstained from Voting??????? After all it is Niagara Citizens they are suppose to represent who demanded the Audit?????
