Thank you all who have viewed and signed the petition.
The Friends of the La Vase Portages will be continuing to pursue a permanent form of protected status for the historic La Vase Portages route. Any land use decisions regarding much of this area are in the hands of the Provincial government and that is the direction we will concentrate our efforts on until protection is achieved.
A new petition is now online, focusing effort with the Province of Ontario. Please feel free to click on the link below and we encourage everyone to sign the petition.
As always, the Friends of the La Vase Portages website is available for viewing. Check back from time to time to see updated pictures, maps, and other materials that are updated frequently.
North Bay City Council is on the brink of ignoring recommendations from City Planning staff, the North Bay Mattawa Conservation Authority and Ministry of Culture for a minimum 120 metre quarrying buffer and to proceed with only a 60 metre buffer to advance aggregate extraction in the area.
We, the undersigned request that the North Bay City Council resolve that the city and it's council support all efforts to protect and enhance the historic La Vase Portage corridor through the city of North Bay and recognize such commitment in the official plan.
The Protect and Enhance the historic La Vase Portage petition to North Bay City Council was written by Doug and is in the category Environment at GoPetition.
