Hello there

I have been a summer time resident of Meaford and Sunnyside Beach for over 60 years.  I enjoy sailing, skiing and jet skiing on the bay each summer, cross country skiing in winter and just working around our cottage all year round.  My grand parents discovered Meaford in 1936 and built our cottage in 1938.  I have traveled around the world and visited many water front communities.  The Georgian Bay by far has the best water.  There are many new technologies that can add power during peak needs that are far less expensive, far less destructive to the environment.  The proposed Pumped Storage Project is 1920’s technology, not 2020’s technology!  Please support me jumping into the cold bay to raise money to stop this outdated, destructive project!

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.

Save The Bay Polar Dip on February 25, 2023.

We are challenging the brave people of our region to jump into our pristine (and frigid) Georgian Bay. This is a great way to get involved and contribute to a well-intentioned cause affecting all of us. All funds raised go towards supporting the work that the volunteers at Save Georgian Bay do in an effort to protect our national treasure and the communities and wildlife who rely on it.
