There are many ways you can help us to promote a rethinking of the Dow’s Lake/Experimental Farm site.

Write or call decision-makers

Opposition is being mounted on two levels:

  1. Federal/Provincial and the hospital board: object to the site and the questionable process by which it was chosen. Ask for an inquiry.
  2. Municipal: criticize the Master Plan
