I am asking for your support for my Polar Plunge.

I have spent all of my 59 years on the shores of Georgian Bay.

Georgian Bay is one of the most beautiful bodies of water in the world and Meaford is blessed to be right on the lake.

Trans Canada Pipelines, now known as Trans Canada Energy, has proposed to build a huge energy project using outdated and environmentally destructive 1920s technology. If allowed to proceed, this crazy project will change the bay and the area forever.

Why am I against this project? Because there are better ways to store energy using existing technology. In fact, battery storage facilities are already in use today and more are being built right now.

Let’s store our power without destroying our environment. We can do it!

Thanks for you support,

Gary’s Virtual Dip

Save Georgian Bay Association

The Georgian Bay team is working to protect our region from the negative impact of T.C. Energy’s proposed hydroelectric pumped storage project. Our focus is to raise awareness in South Georgian Bay and all Ontarian about an irreplaceable natural resources and a national treasure. It’s a gem, a marginalized treasure to be preserved as-is for our children and grandchildren.

We are challenging the brave people of our region to jump into our pristine (and frigid) Georgian Bay.
