Georgina Island Fixed Link Project

Reference Number

Doesn't seem like anyone has spent much time looking at alternatives, A "Fixed link" is described as "i.e., a bridge and a causeway" according to the Project Overview. However, A "Bridge", and a "Bridge and a Causeway" are two of the four alternatives?

PG 25 also states that "Option A) doing nothing" is one way "to meet the need for the Project and achieve its purpose". Why is this even a conversation?. But sure, let's just burn more money.

On behalf of the McRae Beach Association, which membership includes approximately 150 residential homes and cottages, we would like to state our unanimous objection to the proposed Fixed Link project, and hereto file our comments.  

We believe that there will be significant ecological and environmental repercussions should this Fixed Link be allowed to be constructed as presented. The McRae Beach Association, in agreement with the Lake Simcoe South Shore Residents Association (LSSSRA), urges Impact Assessment of Canada, the Minister and staff at Environment Canada to require a full and complete Environmental Assessment.  We are also concerned that very few alternatives to the proposed Fixed Link were properly researched or presented. It is important in a project of this size with so many environmental concerns and stakeholders involved, that all viable alternatives be properly researched, presented and assessed in advance of any decision.
