Save Mooney’s Bay ~ One More Push

Don’t be bland about Blanding’s turtle – they are globally endangered – not just the Canuck ones. Personally, I’m less concerned about the “danger noodle” but…

So, the Integrity Commissioner has found there were major breaches to Ottawa’s lobbying rules in the lead up to the announcement of a new playground in Mooney’s Bay Park. This was already painfully apparent but we are now backed by findings resulting from the formal investigation in to this boondoggle. The complete article can be read here:

Hi! I’m a ‘Murrican Blanding’s turtle!

Not to mention, one mature tree produces enough oxygen to support a family of four for one year. They destroyed 16-50 (numbers still not confirmed) mature, healthy trees to put up a bunch of wood chips (ironic…) and plastic crap. Canada (the 2nd largest country in the world) is home to 10% of the world’s forests, that is a shit ton (official Canuck unit of measure) of O2!

Let’s get the petition over the 1000 mark – it’s been noted in communications with CBC news and City Council that people beyond Ottawa care about the environment and endangered species. For those who’ve already signed the petition, you have my heartfelt thanks. You can also show support by liking and sharing the Save Mooney’s Bay Facebook page. Heck! If you sign the petition, I may stop squawking about this.
