Grassroots Group Secures Final Victory in Cloud Bay Wetland Case

Grassroots Group Secures Final Victory in Cloud Bay Wetland Case

There is a happy and final resolution to the struggle to protect the Could Bay wetland south of Thunder Bay, Ontario (see cover article, GLAHNews, Winter 2002). After the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) ruled in August 2002 that a seasonal trailer park should not be permitted adjacent to this Provincially Significant Wetland, the developer and the Municipality of Neebing jointly filed an application for leave to appeal the OMB decision to the Divisional Court of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. In a six-page July 2003 decision, the court denied the application. The Shoreline Stewardship Association of Cloud Bay is savouring this victory! The group hopes to have at least some of its outstanding bills paid by the fees, which are expected to be levied by the court against Neebing and the developer.
