Nathan Brett of the Purcells Cove Neighbourhood Committee writes: “I wanted to call your attention to the Integrated Mobility Plan Phase Two Survey: They are ending the survey on DECEMBER 23RD, next Friday.

On behalf of Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC), I want to thank you all for your support of the proposal to create an Urban Wilderness Park within the Williams-Colpitt Lake portion of the Backlands. Your letters, emails and presence at City Hall for the vote clearly demonstrated to Council that people care about this place. The 14-1 vote to pursue detailed discussions was a victory in itself.
