We’ll all gather at King’s Field, 20 Victoria St. South. and then walk past Port Hope’s beloved urban woodlot to bid farewell.

Council rejects motion for unlicensed ORV use of rural roads north of 401. This will help protect the Ganaraska Forest from additional damage.
Following an excellent presentation from rural Port Hope resident, Jane Zednik, Port Hope Council decided last evening not to entertain a motion to open municipal roads north of Highway 401 to all Off-Road Vehicle use. Agricultural users are already permitted ATV/ORV access to all roads. Concerns expressed by both residents and Councillors focused on safety, disruption, enforcement and protection of the Ganaraska Forest from environmental degradation.
