Letter writer pleased Jumbo Glacier Resort’s environmental certificate expired

(Re: “Nelson-Creston MLA says stopping Jumbo the right thing”)

It’s about time our paid minsters paid attention to regulations and the people’s requests. This has been a thorn in the side of the many people of the Kootenays and a stumbling block for the government.

Yes, we need investment, but not at the expense of a pristine wilderness area. We must protect our forests and water supply, along with animal habitat and ecology. Many rare mountain plants will only survive in an untouched area. Grizzly bears and cougars need a large hunting area. Water, the mainstay of life, can only be there if we leave Mother Nature to supply it. Our water supply is at a premium, as we are learning this year.

I am personally pleased that the environmental certificate expired. The input of First Nations has been most valuable.

No more fake laws with self-made mayors and council imposing their ideas on B.C.! Yes, we need to move forward, but not at the expense of prime land when we already have so many ski resorts, some struggling to survive in today’s economy.

It is good to see real wisdom acted upon. Thanks to those who made a very wise decision!
