The first significant work at the proposed Jumbo Glacier Resort could get underway this weekend – but not if environmental activists can help it.
The West Kootenay Eco Society’s 24 year campaign to stop Jumbo takes another turn Saturday when they gather at the protest camp near the site.
This amidst rumours the developer will haul trucks of concrete to pour their foundation for a day lodge.
Executive Director David Reid says the ministry shouldn’t be allowing that in light of many failures by the developer to comply with their Environmental Certificate -as with Grizzly bears for example.
Reid says while the society does not engage with civil disobedience there are people at the camp who would put their bodies on the line to to stop those concrete trucks.
