The March 10 Prince Edward County Council meeting included a motion to approve a letter of support for SSJI’s efforts to be signed by Mayor Steve Ferguson and sent to Minister of Environment, Conservation and Parks Jeff Yurek and Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry John Yakabuski. 

Council approved the letter after amending the draft to add emphasis to the need for public consultation into the management plan and the desire to maintain traditional recreational activities in these areas.  Full text of the excellent staff report can be viewed on the municipal website here.  Letter of support can be viewed below:
