Support needed for south shore National Park

Posted on

Thank you to all who responded to EBR 011-3181 for a permit that would allow Gilead Power Corp. to kill, harm and harass Whip-poor-will and Blanding’s Turtle and damage and destroy their habitat. Through our combined efforts we can remain hopeful that these species at risk will remain protected.

Now that the deadline for public comment is over we ask that you forward your response to EBR 011-3181 to Daryl Kramp, MP Prince Edward-Hastings, along with a letter requesting that the Federal Government intervene to protect the wildlife that is under extreme threat at Ostrander Point. We believe that Mr. Kramp’s initiatives to promote a National Park along the south shore or similar measures would protect wildlife, flyways and migration routes and ask that you consider supporting that as well. We want to thank those of you who have already written to Mr. Kramp on that subject.

We want to get as many letters to Mr. Kramp as possible in the next few days before parliament adjourns for the summer so it is urgent that you write to him now. Your letter does not need to be long but it should be in your own words and signed. At this point, because of the postal strike, you may want to send your letter by fax (Mr. Kramp’s fax is 613-969-3803). Or you may drop off a letter at Mr. Kramp’s Picton Office in the Edward Building, 280 Main St., Ste 103, Picton. Mr. Kramp’s Constituency Assistant, Lindsay Gay is there to receive your letters on Mondays but letters can be left any weekday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the main reception desk.

If you cannot manage either a fax or a drop off of a letter Mr. Kramp’s email is Please include your full name and mailing address in your e-mail. By all means forward e-mail copies of your letter to any or all of the following. And to encourage friends and family members to respond as usual.

Leona Dombrowsky, MPP, Prince Edward-Hastings

Linda Jeffrey, Minister of Natural Resources

Brad Duguid, Minister of Energy

John Wilkinson, Minister of the Environment

Doris Dumais, Ministry of the Environment

Shannon McNeill, Ministry of the Environment

 Premier  McGuinty can only be e-mailed from his website.  The link below will take you to his email message box. 

 An alternative is to send your letter by fax: 416-325-3745.

With much appreciation from the South Shore Conservancy Working Committee

Working together to conserve and protect the wildlife and natural heritage of Prince Edward County’s south shore.
