Sacred public forest and falls OR destructive condos? 

The Oka crisis was over a sacred site.
The Ipperwash tragedy was over a sacred site.

Governments spent $73 million to study both tragedies and carve out a solid respectful path for the country to follow in order to prevent future tragedies when addressing the matter of sacred sites. We call upon all levels of governments to review these important reports and to follow their sound recommendations.
This time, be on the right side of history

STOP THE MASSIVE CONDO DESTRUCTION  

DECLARE THE SITE SACRED - PROTECT PUBLIC HERITAGE  

It is meant to be a prominent international visitor attraction just like other sacred sites around the world (Stonehenge, UK;  Prophets Mosque,  Saudi Arabia;  Uluru, Australia).
 

Help us stop
the massive development slated for September 2016. A proposed $1.2 billion condo development threatens to pave over the Sacred Site. 
After settlers arrived to Ottawa, industry polluted the site for 200+ years thereby preventing ceremonies. Since the 1950s, plans were drawn up for the site by officials to eventually become green space. Veering off course, the Harper government initiated the sale of the sacred site.
By acting now, we could eventually enjoy a peaceful forest (similar to Stanley Park in Vancouver) and breath-taking views of the falls instead of allowing our common heritage to be sold off.
This condo speculation and
high rise towers are not as ‘green’ as a public forest on a sacred site - fit for the world stage and a focal point for a long-term tourist economy.
