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:
- Take a stand, and
- 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.

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

To explain Canada’s fundamental Métis past, read Sauls’ A Fair Country.
I suggest his The Comeback will go a long way to explaining our future and how Springwater Park fits within this important national dialogue.

Neil Craig and Rudy Chernicki have done a great job in Elmvale and at Snow Valley Ski Resort in the first 2 of 3 events.
Where can I pick up an application form to do all 3 for the 2018 stoning and scapegoating?

Over 200 hectares of farmland and Minesing Wetlands will likely be destroyed.
How vigorously has Springwater Township council protested to their provincial masters?
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.

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).
— Ayn Rand 1905 – 1982
