Why I Participate in the Polar Dip:

I don’t want to do this. But I am, because raising money to stop TCE Energy (Ontario Pumped Storage) is more important than staying comfortable. This proposed project does not make economic sense (read SGB website).

You all ought to know, that Meaford is NOT a willing host for this project. But TCE is bribing people and business with sponsorship (money).

I fear for the raping of the escarpment, and the pollution to Georgian Bay. All destruction irrevocable forever. It’s time to save and protect our fresh water lakes, like groups are doing now for the oceans. And when will we understand, one pathway to energy sustainability is just turn off your damn lights (Alberta did it January 13/24 during the cold snap).

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

Story

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 It is a shortsighted, outdated, and inefficient approach to energy generation and storage.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.
