New Update on Legal Fund

Barbara markovits from Eastern Shore Forest Watch Association announces that there is roughly $2500 left to Raise for legal fees

Background

As you know, 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 (Forest Watch and Bob Bancroft) have now officially requested this judicial review. This next step will take more time and more money. In August, we estimated that we would need an additional $10,000 to address the issues in the judicial review process.

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.

Update on Funds

With your passionate and generous help, we’re well on our way! The Forest Watch treasurer has reported a ‘shower’ of donations, bringing us roughly halfway to our goal of matching the $5000 donation. Deep thanks to everyone who has already answered the call.

Please keep up the donations, and we’ll all approach the finish line together!

How to Donate

The simplest way to donate is to send an e-Transfer to info@forestwatch.ca. Then send the security answer in a separate e-mail to another email address, cariboutrail@yahoo.ca for security reasons.

If you prefer to snail-mail a cheque, please note that the Post Office has changed our mailing address:

Eastern Shore Forest Watch Association
22 Debaies Cove Road, Debaies Cove
Nova Scotia B0J 2L0 

Whether you can afford $5 or $100, a donation gives you a stake in the process, and — we hope — bragging rights at the end of the process.

We Fight On

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!

Thank you, everyone!
