Purchase land elsewhere to build golf course, group tells Nova Scotia developers

Protected lands must be left alone, group says

Nova Scotia’s Charity Ecology Action Centre is the latest group to oppose a proposed new golf course on Cape Breton Island.

Cabot Cape Breton has recently resurrected its wishes to build a new 18-hole facility on property at West Mabou Beach Provincial Park.

Charity Ecology Action Centre’s senior wilderness co-ordinator says the area’s ecosystem currently benefits from protected land and provides habitat for many rare species. Ray Plourd suggests the developer should instead purchase land elsewhere and leave protected lands alone.

The Charity Ecology Action Centre is also encouraging others opposed to the new golf course proposal to get in touch with their elected officials.
