Due to a cabinet shuffle on Monday, there are new contact people for the pending Jumbo Wild decision, advises a member of the West Kootenay EcoSociety.

Coordinator David Reid said in wake of a pending decision on creating a “resort municipality” in the Jumbo Glacier Valley — to allow a 6,500-bed resort town — and the cabinet shuffle announced Monday, there is a new minister for Tourism.

Along with other environmental groups in the area, the WKE is asking people to take a minute between 9 a.m. today and 9 p.m. on Thursday to let the Province know how you feel about the project.

“We need to let the provincial government know that people in every corner of the province oppose the destruction of important habitat for grizzlies and other listed species,” said Reid.

“Please, take a minute to contact the responsible people and let them know you want them to stop the insanity.”
