We chose to live on Salt Spring Island because of its legendary beauty, and, to be closer to our four grandchildren.
What must our grandchildren think as they look at the Texada clear-cuts from their favourite picnic spot on top of Mount Maxwell? They loved Camp Narnia and its magical setting. How will we answer when they ask why a beautiful forest was clear-cut where Camp Narnia once stood? We have told them that the decision to clear-cut a forest is made by greedy people. We and their teachers have taught them the importance of living in harmony with nature. Will they really understand that we accepted the answer that the destruction of ancient habitats and watersheds is legal? How do you explain "legal" to a child? Will they really believe that we used that word as an excuse to do nothing? We don't think so!
Grandparents of Salt Spring Island unite! Think back on the wars we have all lived through. Remember our own Janet Nevill, 87 years old, who was arrested for trying to stop this. It should take a lot more than a few SLAPP suits and libel threats by Texada, to discourage us from supporting the ongoing efforts to save our precious Island. Let us fight now, to preserve its watersheds and forests for our grandchildren!
Sincerely, Ken and Jill Lee
