SAVE LITTLE HBR. FB GRP.: PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT -THANKS
BARBARA ADAMS: I rise today to acknowledge the 3,138 members of the Facebook group Save Little Harbour/Owls Head from Corrupt Backroom Deal. These are members of the community who decided that they were going to make sure the government heard their voices.
I also want to quote the Cole Harbour Parks and Trails Association, which wrote recently that the apparent process and lack of public consultation upfront has the Cole Harbour Parks and Trails Association concerned that similar actions could be taken with the areas that we manage for the people of Nova Scotia through the Department of Lands and Forests. After that deliberation, the Cole Harbour board unanimously passed the following motion: That the board endorse and distribute the following position statement on the Owls Head protected area, that the provincial decision to remove the Owls Head area of Eastern Shore from the list of potential protected areas and parks should be reversed until a more thorough public consultation is carried out.
I recognize all of these constituents for speaking out publicly.
