Why I Participate in the Polar Dip:

Georgian Bay is pristine, tranquil and my love. In this era of insecurity, I want to preserve it as is. I love winter and its dynamic ice formations when it freezes over entirely; I love spring, and exposure of sand when water levels are low. I love swimming June to September on my inner tube from Kubota on 7th Line. I want the 150 year celebration of the town of Meaford to honour its constituents and honour its treasure and Save the Bay,. All of the gaggles of Canadian geese in flight, and all the small and big fish: salmon, rainbow trout! Meaford is the best place to fish in Georgian Bay!

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 It is a shortsighted, outdated, and inefficient approach to energy generation and storage.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