St Catharines, Ontario – Community organizers will be hosting a letter writing campaign and info session about the damage to protected wetlands in Niagara Falls by Gr Can Inc. Mike Enns, a local film maker, will be debuting his web video about the damage and the public is welcome to join us to learn and help protect what little natural spaces are left in Niagara.

Join with other community members who are urging Niagara Falls City Council to suspend further action and refuse to grant further approvals to GR-Can’s Riverfront Community Development upon the Thundering Waters Forest in Niagara Falls.

This development has long been fraught with controversy, and, most recently, the developer was found to have been engaging in clear-cutting upon the Thundering Waters Forest property, illegally causing damage to the protected Provincially Significant Wetlands within the land.

We are asking the public to join us in writing letters and emails to Niagara Falls City Council at Mahtay Cafe and Lounge on January 7th, 2019 from 4-6pm, urging them to suspend further permissions for this development and to hold GR-Can accountable for their breach of public trust and environmental harm.
