This Area may soon Disappear, if not for Your Help!


If this place looks familiar … Read on
A proposed HydroElectric development will drastically change High Falls on the Grassy River. The scenic beauty of these rapids and waterfall, only 23 km from downtown Timmins, will be lost forever as the river flow is forced into a large pipe to feed the turbine and generator. The falls, as we now know it, will cease to exist. The preliminary work has already started as an environmental screening process is now happening. Public input will be sought probably in early Spring 2008 or 2009 or 2010 or 2011 or 2012 - Who knows ?

High Falls Presentation to Timmins Local Citizens Committee

Hello Everyone,

Just to keep you up to date with our battle to keep the waters of High Falls flowing.  John Shaw, Mert Lake and I have completed a presentation to the Timmins Local Citizens Committee on Wednesday January 9 at 7:00 p.m.

I have put together a Power Point Presentation outlining the value of the falls to the residents and visitors to Timmins.  There are also several photos and maps of the area to make everyone aware  of what is happening.

So far we have passed out 1,500 post cards addressed to the Ministers of Natural Resources and the Environment.
