Why I Participate in the Polar Dip:

To raise awareness about the Meaford communities interest in protecting Georgian Bay and our local waters, environment and terrestrial natural landscape which is part of our community.

My hope is that through this awareness it will highlight the negative ecological and carbon impacts the Pumped Storage Project will have along with the poor economics of this project and the burden it will cause for Ontario and Meaford tax payers.

Thank you for your interest in supporting my work to raise funds to Save the Bay!

This initiative is dedicated to the preservation of the pristine and natural beauty and water quality of Georgian Bay and its surrounding area. We live, work, and play on the amazing Niagara Escarpment –  a World Biosphere Reserve – and, like thousands of other people who signed petitions, are opposed to TC Energy’s proposal for a massive Hydroelectric Pumped Storage project on the Canadian Forces base (CFB) in Meaford, Ontario.

The project would very likely have devastating impacts on the biodiversity and water quality of Georgian Bay and the escarpment. It is a shortsighted, outdated, and inefficient approach to energy generation and storage. It would destroy approximately 500 acres of forest, and affect many areas of spawning grounds and aquatic ecosystems. This could harm or destroy the habitat of as many as 30 species at risk known to be living here.
