Through all the goings on with the Karen and the petition (great job all) and e-mails going back and forth. I have forgotten to mention that I had a great talk with Christopher Lepa from the City Forestry branch. I was put in contact with him because of our concerns about the water line and any damage to the park.( Oh, quick side note, the water line does go north past the perimeter towards Stone Wall. So maybe that is where they will be drawing water from, not the Assiniboine River.) Anyways, we were talking about replanting any damaged trees and replacing the sick ones along Farmers Rd. and I had mentioned about the east side. He was very much in favour of that and will do a follow-up walk about in spring (may/June) and see what we can do.
P.S. please keep getting signatures!
