Update on Court Costs from Forest Watch

Statement from Eastern Shore Forest Watch Association

Good News: The people of Nova Scotia have won the first round! Justice Coady of the Nova Scotia Supreme Court has granted us an extension to file an application for a judicial review regarding the delisting of Owl’s Head Park from the list of Provincial Park Reserves. We are also requesting a judicial review of the provincial government’s Letter of Offer to sell Owl’s Head Provincial Park Reserve to Lighthouse Links Development Company.

We have now officially requested this judicial review. This next step will take more time and more money. We estimate that we will need an additional $10,000 to address the issues in the judicial review process.

More Good News: A generous anonymous donor has contacted us with an offer to match all donations up to $5000! Therefore, we are seeking $5000 in matching donations. We’ve already received some donations, so we’re on our way.

We are asking all of you who have supported us so far to help us reach the finish line. The simplest way is to send an e-Transfer to info@forestwatch.ca. Alternatively, you could email info@forestwatch.ca to find out other ways to donate. 

Thank you, everyone! Without your support, we could not have reached this point in the fight for Owl’s Head Provincial Park. Let’s keep going, not only for Owl’s Head, but also the 100+ other Nova Scotia Provincial Park (Reserves), which are in the same fragile boat. Let’s stop the Nova Scotia government from selling off our Provincial Parks!
