So says the Barrie Advance

The hope offered from a 22-year serving provincial member of parliament?

Simcoe Grey MPP Jim Wilson said he doubts the government will consider public appeals to keep the park open.

“I don’t think the government will change its mind. Cabinet made the decision with no consultation,” he said.

He added the closure – “an absolute surprise” to him – doesn’t make sense as the area continues to grow and the province is promoting tourism.

“I hope the government lives up to its word that it will remain crown land. Springwater’s growing. Barrie’s growing. The goal right now is to make sure that land is preserved.”

And from Springwater Mayor Linda Collins:

“It will always be a landmark for us. We’ll keep a watch on how this transpires.”
