It only takes one councillor to put an issue on the Fredericton City Council agenda. Please consider taking a minute and e-mail/mail this letter to your ward councillor. This letter-writing campaign is necessary since formal requests by the Friends of the UNB Woodlot to present to Council have been repeatedly denied (two more rejections just in the past week).
You can download this pdf document, and (1) cut-and-paste the text into an e-mail, or (2) print, and mail a hard-copy letter to your councillor (a list of councillors, their mailing addresses, and a map of the ward is also included).
The Friends of the UNB Woodlot are asking City Council to call for a stop to shale gas development and lobby the Province for watershed-based source protection of our drinking water. Not only will these measures help protect your drinking water, but they will also give more protection to forest wetlands like the UNB Woodlot from short-sighted piecemeal development that is destroying this valuable teaching and research forest.
Our councillors have been elected to act on the concerns of the wards that they represent. By sending the enclosed letter to your Councillor, you can make your voice be heard. Please help make a difference by speaking up about this important resource that we cannot live without.
P.S. Feel free to pass this on to anyone who lives in Fredericton - apartment renters and home owners alike.
