I would like to respond to charges made by Earl Rumm of Geranium Corporation, developer of the proposed Big Bay Point mega-marina.
Our advocacy relating to the possible environmental damage from this development falls within our charitable mandate to protect the environment and human health.
Not one cent from “taxpayers” has gone into our work to protect Lake Simcoe from the proposed mega-marina. I am quite certain that our many donors would be proud that we stand with the brave Simcoe County residents who are trying to do what’s right in the face of intimidation from well-heeled interests.
