The deadline for donating funds to the Save Mary Lake campaign has been extended. I cannot tell from the website for how long, but donations are apparently trickling in at this stage. There is a tweet on the site asking if people can tell four friends. If you would like to donate, but still have not, or if you know of anyone who might like to donate please act soon. The organizers have made it very easy for you: donate by text, cheque, or credit card online.
There is a section on the CRD website right now that contains documents with regard to the Regional Sustainability Strategy (RSS). There are nine topics, which include: Climate Change, Transportation, Resource Management, Social Wellbeing, Sustainable Development, Food Security, Affordable Housing, Economic Sustainability, and Ecological Health. I am sure it will not come as a suprise to know that I took a look at Ecological Health first :) It is a little late in the game considering the cut-off for the first round of responses is February 11, but they are accepting responses and input after that date. The responses received before February 11 will be used in preparing for a Forum of Councils. You would have to be very disciplined and have a fair bit of free time to review all of the nine documents, but I would encourage anyone who lives in the CRD to start with one that interests you and go from there.
