Dear [NAME] –
I am writing to voice my concern for the City of Kenora’s plans to develop Town Island on Lake of the Woods. By seeking proposals for the development of the island, the City is regrettably putting the interests of big business ahead of kids and the environment. That’s just not right.
As you know, Town Island is home to wilderness campsites that are open to the public and regularly used by canoe campers, picnickers, nearby cottagers and area youth camps. The island is home to BB Camp, which has operated on a small portion of the island since 1954. Other area youth camps, including YMCA-YWCA Camp Stephens have used the island’s campsites for more than 100 years.
If the City is successful in developing the island, everyone will lose out. I strongly encourage you work in partnership with the Friends of Town Island group to find a commercially viable conservation solution.
