“Watershed protection must move forward” by Jim Cooperman

Check out Jim Cooperman’s full post Watershed protection must move forward (March 19 2015) over at his Shuswap Passion blog.

We cannot afford to go backwards. The current debate within local governments about how to fund the ongoing work of the Shuswap Watershed Council is almost too painful to observe. So much good work has been done, particularly the latest report that looks at farming practices, it would be absurd to lose the Council now because our local politicians cannot agree on where the funding should come from. The new report outlines a work plan that will lead to improvements, but the Council needs continued commitment, collaboration, and secure funding.

  1. The watershed must be a top priority. If Salmon Arm can find other 3/4 of a million dollars towards designing and holding the adjacent property for a underpass that is completely unnessary then can it can help find money for our vital watershed.
