Public Meeting - Colliery Dams Removal

John Barsby School
Tuesday, Nov. 20th 7:00 PM

Nanaimo residents are not convinced the city has given enough consideration to the option of upgrading these dams, which apparently was an option presented in the 2010 seismic report done on these dams.

It is pointed out that the social and environmental aspects make the exploration of upgrading the dams something that needs considering. The dam is seen as an important part of the parks system for which Nanaimo is justifiably proud.

If you think this issue demands more consideration than a decision made behind closed doors and recommended by a few city staff, then this is the perfect opportunity to participate in this open and transparent democracy your city council is always talking about.

Comment: It will be interesting to see how the local media covers this issue as the local daily has already come out four square behind removing the dams, although I doubt they have anything more than city staff's opinion on which they base their opinion. I doubt if they have done any real investigating to see what the options really are.  It's not called the Daily Snooze for nothing.
