Proposed: Commercial Light Industry and Storage Sites at Star Lake

Letters of Opposition sent to Manitoba Parks


Subject: Commercial Light Industry and Storage Sites-South Whiteshell Provincial Park (Star Lake Block 4,5,6)

Dear Dale, We are writing to you to oppose the building of Commercial Light Industry and Storage Sites at Star Lake. The area that was suggested was the old Star Lake Dump site and that was taken away as there were concerns with the damage to the land and eventually the water. The land there has recovered nicely over the years and it doesn’t make sense to clear and have Commercial Light Industry and Storage. Many cottagers walk, run, bike, berry pick, and enjoy nature in this area.

Star Lake is a smaller lake and the increased traffic on the roads and area would not be safe for the families and especially children of the community.

Find a site that won’t affect the safety of the cottagers. We propose looking at an area around the South Whiteshell Transfer Station.

My mother celebrated her 60 th year at Star Lake this past July 31 st. We love this lake and the quiet solitude it provides.

Kind Regards,

Jennifer & Dale Giesbrecht
