A Looming Environmental Disaster!

The Town of Fort Erie has given zoning approval for the proposed Canadian Motor Sports Speedway complex on an 821 acre site southwest of the Bowen Road and QEW interchange.

As a result of concerns raised by residents of Fort Erie, the board of The Bert Miller Nature Club has investigated the environmental impact on Fort Erie should this project proceed as designed. Our investigation has led us to conclude the proposal will result in severe damage to the environment of Fort Erie and may lead to social degradation. In keeping with the Club’s constitutional objectives, the board has expressed its opposition to this proposal with the Town of Fort Erie, the Regional Municipality of Niagara and the Province of Ontario.
