As you know, Gibsons Aquifer is under threat from excavations, dredging and construction activities needed to build the George hotel, condos and marina project. These activities could result in the loss and/or contamination of our drinking water supply and the poisoning of our harbour. More info here.
On Saturday October 7, we hosted a special Thanksgiving Rally and fundraising event in Dougall Park to bring new to light to the dangers our drinking water supply and environment face if the George development is allowed to proceed as planned. We had a few hundred people visit us throughout the day, to listen and learn about the risks and issues, and what we are doing to stop dangerous works from taking place on the George development site. Including legal actions to overturn permits issued to the developer by the Town, to force the developer to deal with the serious risks to the aquifer and environment posed by this project.
We want to express our deepest thanks to all those who contributed to this effort and helped make our special Thanksgiving Rally a success. Our sincere appreciation and gratitude goes out to all those who donated goods and services, time and energy and money to help support this cause.
