Call on Parks Canada to launch a feasibility study for a national park on Gambier Island

Howe Sound is an amazing comeback story. After decades of pollution and damage from mines, pulp and paper mills, overharvesting and a mercury-dumping chlorine manufacturing plant, the sound has started transitioning back to an ecologically diverse green and blue belt teeming with life. But while herring, dolphins, salmon and whales are returning to Howe Sound, planning for more industrial and other developments is well underway. With more than a dozen new projects on the horizon, it’s time to discuss how we plan a balanced future for the region.
