TALKING POINTS – WHY GAS IS A BAD IDEA FOR SQUAMISH
The Garibaldi at Squamish (GAS) project is a bad idea because it
Have devastating impacts to wildlife, including 16 blue-listed
and endangered species, steelhead salmon, and related habitat.
Require Squamish residents to pick up the tab for providing
services to the development. That means locals would have to pay
for new services, including hospital beds, school seats, road
maintenance, water, public transportation, policing, and
Undermine area outdoor recreation experiences, such as
back-country sports, climbing, camping, hiking and hundreds of
kilometers of trails.
Ignore the existing economy benefits of the area. Tens of
thousand of annual visitors and locals alike enjoy the
backcountry experience the area offers, generating significant
income for Squamish each year.
Fly in the face Smart Growth principles that are in keeping with
Squamish’s Official Community Plan. GAS would strain community
resources, as well as directly compete with local businesses.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
