Why I Participate in the Polar Dip:

If this thing had a human face, we would see beyond their candy giving gestures. We would see this thing lacks the ability to experience emotions like contentment, remorse, and love, or appreciate nature’s beauty. We would see an outcast with no roots nor friends nor interest in fitting in locally anywhere they went. We would find their insatiable appetite disgusting whenever we tried to help. We would see that it is walking a dog, who itself is leashed by a larger chain of owners. And after imagining its possible human form, we would lament that this transhuman/Canada thing is so mentally ill and its existence parasitic to anything, Meaford and beyond.

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 It is a shortsighted, outdated, and inefficient approach to energy generation and storage.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