Restore health, recreation and business, by funding the Meewasin Valley Authority

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

Our population, fortunately situated along the South Saskatchewn River, has for many decades, enjoyed the benefits and features the river and it's access points have to offer.  The Fred Heal canoe launch site, Poplar Bluffs and Paradise Beach are features that have provided much recreation, family time, wellness, tourism, health and excercise for our city.  The recent provincial budget cuts have impacted the Meewasin Valley Authority, and as of late, the plan is to close the above mentioned sites, for public access for the summer of 2017, at minimum, as a result of this reduction in provincial funding.

Dear SaskParty, please reconsider your priorities.  Consider communicating with those that value exercise, health, well-being, the outdoors, and promote tourism.  Please consider speaking to outdoor retailers, whose businesses will be hurt by the loss of sales of outdoor sporting equipment (kayaks, paddle-boards, etc..), and the loss in tax revenue as such, to move our province forward. Consider communicating with the population that spends so much time enjoying the river access points as a place of family time, recreation and communities coming together to support a vibrant and healthy population.

Please consider urgent funding, for the Meewasin Valley Authority, to preserve the well-being of our population and businesses for 2017.

We the undersigned, ask of you, our leadership, to maintain what is right for our community, what is right for Saskatchewan.
