Sewer threat to sanctuary 'unconscionable'

Mississauga ON -- It would appear from Donald Grant's profile of Roy Ivor's wildlife sanctuary (Jan. 30) that there will be no abatement of Mississauga's Urban Blight until it finally penetrates the refuge, one of the few unspoiled stands of forest in the city, in the form of a sewer line.

Just as a century-old tree can be destroyed in a matter of minutes, so can the trust, which Mr. Ivor nurtured in wild visitors to the refuge over decades, and which Bernice Inman has perpetuated despite financial burdens, be eroded in a very short time if the natural equilibrium is upset by a careless human agency.

I should think it unconscionable of the Credit Valley Conservation Authority not to reconsider its approval of the sewer line, in view of the potential for irreversible ecological damage to the sanctuary, of the resulting precedent for further encroachment in the name of public interest, and of the critical need to preserve the acreage of the refuge in order that wildlife, forced to vacate lands taken by housing and industrial developers, might be harbored and protected.

It will make a difference!
