Speak up for the LU greenspace and trails.

The LU greenspace is threatened

Laurentian University has declared insolvency and is doing a review of its assets to decide what it will sell to pay its creditors.  One of the assets being reviewed is the beloved LU greenspace and trail system. If the land is sold to private interests, this greenspace could be lost to development.

The LU greenspace is over 200 hectares of natural area between Lakes Ramsey, Nepahwin, Laurentian, and encompassing Bennet Lake.  Included in the greenspace are Laurentian Beach, the Laurentian Nordic ski trails, and many favourite hiking trails & viewpoints, including part of the 10km hike around Lake Laurentian and the Trans Canada Trail.

NDP candidates Jamie West (Sudbury) and France Gélinas (Nickel Belt), Liberal candidates David Farrow (Sudbury) and Gilles Proulx (Nickel Belt), and Green candidates David Robinson (Sudbury) and Glenys Babcock (Nickel Belt) have signed the #saveLUgreenspace candidate pledge that states, “If elected, I pledge to actively support the protection of the LU greenspace in its natural state, as a freely accessible community greenspace.”
