We saved Wasaga Distribution Inc.
After six months of educating the public and pressuring council by the Do not Sell Wasaga Hydro Group, Council voted to Retain & Grow Wasaga Distribution Inc.
While council took what appeared to be a cowardly action by taking a secret vote to avoid the promised RecPlex council meeting with the public over this issue, we are happy to report that Hydro is safe (for now). it is to be noted that in confirming the issue was over, Mayor Smith commented that this vote may prove to be wrong in the future leaving the door open for this mess in the future.
We would like to thank all people who participated in this campaign even if it was just taking a sign and signing the petition, and invite all to a celebration of success at the RecPlex on Sunday August 27th 1-4pm with a free barbecue and live entertainment.
We would also like to thank the Provincial Keep Hydro Public organization and its backers for the invaluable support in our efforts to save our own utility.
To date our own fundraising raised: $5172.54.
We spent $3869.59 on our campaign.
leaving $1302.95 to be divided as promised between the two food banks in Wasaga Beach.
Thank you all!
