This site has been created in support of
"THE PARTNERSHIP FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
OF DIGBY NECK AND ISLANDS SOCIETY "
Claudia J. Tidd - one of many concerned residents of
Little River,Digby County, N.S. Canada
Information written has been passed on to the public as
was passed on to me. Some pictures are from
my own collection. Maps were given me from other
folks to add to the site.
The"Digby Neck Concerned Citizens Committee" was formed
at a public meeting in Sandy Cove in
April 2002. Many citizens from Digby Neck and
the Islands attended this meeting and based
on available information decided to stand together
in opposition of the proposed quarry development that was
being planned for White Cove in Little River.
The Committee has accepted the mandate given them to:
1)To preserve the pristine nature of Digby Neck
and Islands and to promote sustainable development that enhances
the quality of life.
2)To promote the principle that the community affected
approve any development proposed.
3)To create a heightened awareness which will nurture the
preservation and stewardship of Digby Neck and Islands
and the surrounding waters
4)To work with other groups having similar aims
5)To stop mega-quarry for Whites Cove, Little River,
Digby Neck, and to actively oppose other developments
which are inconsistent with the above criteria.
Research has been ongoing and what is known
is being communicated to all area residents in
the form of newsletters.There has been and continues to be
regular press releases and public meetings. Opposition to
the project is voiced locally, nationally, and internationally
through their efforts, as well as from concerned
residents and businesses of the area who have written
their concerns to the local newspapers. We have
the cooperation from friends of the vulnerable eco
systems contained on Digby Neck and Islands as
well as those contained in the larger
Gulf of Maine.
As concerned citizens in and with this committee,
we stand together in the fight to protect
our land from anything that could/will
affect our way of life that could cause
endangerment or harm to ourselves now or for
the generations to come.
Anyone is welcome to contact this committee with
their concerns or to request more information.
