My name is Emily Tozer, also known as Peak. 

A lot of you have definitely heard about the Springbank dry dam project, or atleast the opposition,
What you probably don't know is what this project actually affects. If you look at the land aquisition maps, the government wants to use for this project, you will see that they want to aquire the entire kamp property. Kamp Kiwanis is not just a camp, Kamp Kiwanis is a home, a safe haven, and more importantly, Kamp Kiwanis is an escape. Proudly I can say that Kamp Kiwanis has helped millions of kids since 1951, when it first opened up. Kamp Kiwanis is a place where kids can escape what ever hardship they are going through at home. Our motto is to have fun, play safe, and nurture growth. We can't very well do that if it is destroyed right before us. I think I speak for all kids that come through Kamp Kiwanis and all those that have worked/volunteered at Kamp Kiwanis when I say, we need camp. “What I heard is that you’re more concerned about a building that is used intermittently for fire training upstream than negatively impacting people’s livelihoods downstream and their homes. Does that not sound counter intuitive?” asked Kelba, who says the Springbank project will cut the Kiwanis Kamp lands in two, blocking river access for the disadvantaged kids who otherwise might never experience a camping adventure. This is a quote from Grant Kebla, one of the board members at Kamp Kiwanis. 

Thank you all for your support and your time. 

 There is an open house next Tuesday, from 5 to 8 pm. (Details below)  and decide if you want to show opposition.
(Multiple maps and such inbound.
