My Midhurst neighbours may think I am writing about Springwater Park at SpringwaterParkcc.org for the “average Joe”.
I don’t mind anyone reading what I write but my primary literary target has always been the Province of Ontario.
I told the rest of the members of the Springwater Park Citizens’ Coalition that I would quit as their president after 6 months. My job was to identify, scan, and get the legitimate, constitutional powers at the same table which (I hoped) would result in keeping Springwater Park green for the next seven generations and more.
I started doing the research in Oct 2012, and then the nine-month long First Nations occupation started April 1, 2013.
Any resolution will be based on a nation-to-nation negotiation based on Canadian LEGAL realities not some white-mans’ guilt or charity or political correctness. That we’ve come this far is a great testament to the maturity, grace and intelligence of those working together to keep this land sacred.
It’s a great story; a story that our grand kids will re-tell with justifiable pride.
