Please contact the GRCA to put pressure on them to help stop the HCBP from going forward. Below is the Text from a handbill with David Schultz Contact, who will be making the decision to grant the cities extention.
Check out the Guelph Mercury’s article on the issue
Contact the Grand River Conservation Authority and tell them not to let work continue on the Hanlon Creek Business Park.
The City of Guelph began construction on a 4-lane road and culvert across a section of the Hanlon Creek on July 6, 2009. On July 27, 60 people stopped work on the land and camped there for 19 days.
Even with outright objections to the construction project continuing from the Ministry of Natural Resources, Jefferson Salamander expert Jim Bogart and the people of Guelph, the City is still pushing ahead with this development.
The occupation made the original Sept. 15 deadline impossible to meet. The City is now seeking to bend the rules and is requesting an extension of the construction deadline from the GRCA for building the culvert. This will endanger fish breeding, including sensative cold water Brook Trout.
Contact the GRCA and tell them not to grant the extention to the construction deadline. Don’t let them endanger the breeding of the Brook Trout and the health of the Hanlon Creek watershed by further development on the site.
Tell David Schultz to save our watershed:
