RICHARD BELL: Pollsters Asking Questions About Owls Head

Someone is paying for a phone poll of people on the Eastern Shore to see what they think about destroying Owls Head Provincial Park. You can listen to the poll on this link on Soundcloud.

This poll suggests that someone is getting really worried about the political impact of Premier Rankin’s decision as Minister of Lands and Forestry to secretly de-list Owls Head Provincial Park and sell it to American billionaire Beckwith Gilbert. Gilbert’s company, Lighthouse Links, plans to grind the park into sand in order to build luxury housing and a few golf courses.
