Your support matters and your voice is being heard. Thank you!
For those who signed the petition, you have my heartfelt thanks. Our mayor continues to hide behind feigned ignorance and has now denied environmentalists, et al, their democratic voice: “This is one acre out of 72 acres,” said the mayor. “It’s a children’s playground with teeter totters and swing sets and monkey bars. So I think a lot of what’s been said over the last couple of days has been embellished. And I think when people see the finished product — particularly the kids — they’re going to love it.” Not one word of this is true and the Mayor knows this. Y’all have seen the pooping moose, right?
This despite the reams of studies, letters emails and the proposals of Sinking Ships Entertainment itself. This may not be your neighbourhood but it’s part of the world’s ecosystem – please add your voice if you can.
From the Save Mooney’s Bay Facebook page:
“Did you know that the Blanding’s turtle (a species that’s provincially and nationally threatened) was identified as a species at risk at the Mooney’s Bay site? (report here: https://goo.gl/HNBSi5). This is currently their nesting period, but the heavy trucks and current state of grounds will keep them away. If you do spot any at Mooney’s Bay, please take a picture!
Please note that the environmental reports were done after the contract was signed and not released until June 6th — well after the site had been fenced off, ripped up, dug out and filled with gravel.

Sing along with me people: Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone…
