Bay of Fundy Nature Park being squeezed by LNG Terminal and Quarry Developments.

The Ganong Nature and Marine Park is the culmination of many years of work by many people and the fulfillment of Whidden Ganong's dream to have his 350 acre country property turned into a nature park. Owned and operated by the St. Croix Estuary Project Inc.(SCEP) there are now fears that years of effort and two million in investment may be negatively impacted by continued pressure from the Bayside Quarry expansion and the proposed Calais LNG development directly across from the Todd's Point site.

A letter of concern has been sent to FERC regarding the Calais LNG proposal at Red Beach and a similar letter is being drafted to submit to the Province of New Brunswick relative to the Bayside Quarry expansion proposal.

The FERC letter can be read at: http://elibrary.ferc.gov/idmws/file_list.asp?accession_num=20081218-5014
