Reader Has Concerns About Georgian Bay, But Not Necessarily Proposed Pumped Storage Facility

The Editor:

The pumped storage facility planned for the tank range certainly has been raising awareness of the beautiful environment we have in this community and this country as a whole.

My hat is off to the folks bringing their concerns to the attention of the authorities, municipal, provincial and federal.

'Save Georgian Bay' as a group is rightly concerned about the impact this planned facility would have on their properties, and our region.

Concern About Pipelines

Dear Editor,

I am very concerned about the Coastal Gas Link Pipeline in northern British Columbia. All five clans of the Wet'suwet'en have unanimously rejected this pipeline and are peacefully defending their unceded land.

The RCMP broke down their barricades last year and on Friday, February 7 arrested land defenders at the barricade. Coastal Gas Link is a subsidiary of TC Energy, which is the same company behind the project at the Meaford tank range. A direct quote from this company’s public relations material reads, “At TC Energy, we are committed to building and maintaining positive relationships with landowners. We are proud of the relationships we’ve built with thousands of landowners across North America and we believe that these relationships are critical to our success. Our approach to engagement with people and groups who may be affected by our activities is rooted in our core values of safety, responsibility, collaboration and integrity”.
