The following submission to the Ontario government from Dr. William Shotyk of the Elmvale Foundation regarding the proposed Greenbelt study area was presented to Springwater Township Council yesterday by Kate Harries.
Shotyk, the Bocock chair of Agriculture and the Environment at the University of Alberta, urges inclusion in the province’s study area of the Simcoe Uplands (locally known as the Waverley Uplands and French’s Hill), the recharge area for the important artesian spring waters of Springwater, Tiny and Tay Townships. “These are arguably the cleanest natural waters on Earth. I have no doubt about their unique quality and inherent value.”
