LETTER: Bravo to Forbidden Plateau cleanup crew

Dear editor,

Re: Oct. 31 Record – Forbidden Plateau Cleanup.

As a former skier and hiker of the Plateau and a former resident of Forbidden Plateau Road, this article drew my attention. As evidenced by the sorry state that it has been in since the private ski group pulled out in the late ’90s, this project is long overdue.

Once a jewel in the Forbidden Plateau, as a small Class ‘C’ Park, it was not on the provincial government’s radar and it became the “poor little sister” next to its big brother, Strathcona Park. The volunteer members of the Forbidden Plateau Reclamation Society deserve a lot of credit and the support of the community for taking on this project. Already, they have accomplished much in the way of cleanup of the old ski lodge site on a ‘shoestring’ budget, but there is still much to do. I am supporting this worthwhile project with a financial donation and I challenge all outdoor enthusiasts who have hiked or skied there to do the same.

Anyone wishing to make a donation can contact the society’s president, Greg Sawchuck, at gsaw@telus.net
