Successful and seasoned environmentalists do the sensible thing: they take a Walk for Water

August 15, 2015

Want to know the secret to stop a massive limestone quarry and an industrial garbage complex atop the world’s purest water?

Just ask Danny Beaton and Dr. John Bacher:

  1. Take a stand, and
  2. do something sensible like, Walk for Water 2015.

Danny and John were key advisors to me for the remarkable rescue of Springwater Park by Beausoleil First Nation.

 


I wear my heart on my cheek: contempt for the motivations of some that oppose the Midhurst Secondary Plan.

As individuals I like almost 100% of everyone I have met that currently resides in Midhurst.

The NIMBY (not-in-my-back-yard) and “gated-community” vibe is problematic for me.

Racial NIMBYism: my eyes narrow lots.

No individual or corporate interest has a right to kill the land, food, and water capacity of that which is not theirs. I write to the province based on first-hand family residency since 1960.

I leave others to defend their own “whys” of their behaviour.

The modern conservative [neo-con] is engaged in one of man’s oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness. John Kenneth Galbraith


John Ralston Saul’s new book is very good news for those wanting to understand the future of Springwater Park.

To explain Canada’s fundamental Métis  past, read Sauls’ A Fair Country.

Penguin JRS1

I suggest his The Comeback will go a long way to explaining our future and how Springwater Park fits within this important national dialogue.

The “Geranium Rule” was created by the stroke of an Ontario minister’s pen.

Over 200 hectares of farmland and Minesing Wetlands will likely be destroyed.

Protest signs

How vigorously has Springwater Township council protested to their provincial masters?

You decide.

At last night’s council meeting, Council was asked if they had at least sent a letter opposing the “Special Rule” that green lighted the massive Midhurst Secondary Plan.

  • The answer from staff: No.

A follow-up question:

  • Is the Mayor prepared to do so now considering the 2 petitions and Margaret Atwood coming to Midhurst to protect the Minesing Wetlands on June 22nd?

I took from the answer that there will not even a letter of protest from this Council.

What was offered up was a foretaste of a new township Procedural Bylaw that will rule “out of order” any such future questions.


The evil of the world is made possible by nothing but the sanction you give it.

Honour is self-esteem made visible in action.

Individual rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to vote away the rights of a minority; the political function of rights is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities (and the smallest minority on earth is the individual).

The rainbow flag I loaned to Springwater Township on February 20th if they wanted to fly it.
