The permit to allow the dumping of tons and tons of contaminated soil in Shawnigan Lake’s watershed is incomprehensible. What could Mary Polak and Christy Clark possibly be thinking? A resulting ghost town is only a matter of time, and the water table actually affects a much wider area.
I would like to ask everyone to please write to the federal government to ask them to stop this immediately! Justin Trudeau, Hunter Tootoo (Minister of Fisheries and Oceans), and Catherine McKenna (Minister of Environment and Climate Change).
We need your help desperately.
Shawnigan Lake, future ghost town
