The controversial plan to develop a golf course and bedroom community on Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore has been scrapped, after the potential buyer said it doesn’t have the support of the provincial government.
… The group Save Owl Head Provincial Park heralded the company’s decision as a “victory.”
“We’ve been standing up for Owls Head Provincial Park and its conservation values for almost two years now,” said group founder Sydnee Lynn McKay, in a news release.
“It never should have been necessary, but it was worth it.”
The group went on to say they are looking to the province to legally protect the park “as soon as possible.”
