The time is now!
It has been heard many times from people who appreciate the beauty of Howe Sound, “anywhere else in the world, Howe Sound would be a National Park”.
Now we have a real opportunity to move this vision forward thanks to the David Suzuki Foundation who set the initiative for a National Park on Gambier Island as a strategic goal.
Their proposal is to create a new near-urban national park in Howe Sound, based on the land and the surrounding waters of Gambier Island. Work has been underway for more than three years.
The first step Parks Canada takes when considering a new park is to launch a feasibility study, which includes public engagement. Before this step, it’s important to demonstrate that key partners want to join the conversation.
So far, property owners on Gambier Island that attended the two information sessions are supportive of a feasibility study being conducted, now we are all being asked if we support this too. Read more here for progress to-date, and sign the petition to add your support.
