Why I Participate in the Polar Dip:

To keep nature as close as possible to its natural existence. As we continue to evolve, we ideally attempt to preserve what we have today, for tomorrow it may no longer be what we want it to be. I love the Bay and hope it stays the way it is, untouched. Personally, I love to invigorate my body with the Bays water as I feel it has self healing properties!

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 It is a shortsighted, outdated, and inefficient approach to energy generation and storage.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