Why I Participate in the Polar Dip:

When I moved to Meaford I fell in love with the Georgian Bay immediately. I love it so much that every time I submerged my body in the Bay I literally feel purified. I mean it. I go for a dip in the Bay every month of the year regardless of its temperature.

I truly care about our environment and fresh water as I know that it is a limited resource. And my citizen duty is to protect it.

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 It is a shortsighted, outdated, and inefficient approach to energy generation and storage.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