Listen to “The ongoing legal legacy of Owls Head” on Spreaker.

It was an issue that dogged Iain Rankin in the last general election in Nova Scotia.

Since then, we have a new premier, a new government and a new minister of Natural Resources. Also, the developers behind the potential golf resort at Owls Head have withdrawn their offer of purchase of the 285-hectare package of uninhabited Crown property, and the Nova Scotia government recently announced Owls Head would indeed become protected from development once and for all.

Still, a lawsuit continues to wend its way through the Nova Scotia court system. Jamie Simpson with Juniper Law represents the Eastern Shore Forest Watch Association, the group that launched the initial case against the development. Here, he discusses why this is important and why they are still preparing for the May 12 appeal hearing.
