The natural beauty and uncluttered water views at Victoria Park in Charlottetown are to be envied.

Once again, Victoria Park is under attack.

Little by little we are chipping away at the integrity of that small, precious piece of woodland: a treasured heritage for Islanders.

More tennis courts, larger playgrounds, extended softball facilities, an ugly bandstand, a pottery studio, a skateboard park. All accompanied of course by the need for more parking.

What are we thinking?

We all know that climate change is upon us. We listen to the warnings of the scientists.

But are we taking action? Are we seriously examining our lifestyles?

Victoria Park is a microcosm of what we are doing to our planet. As we destroy what little is left of that lovely woodland and surrounding natural areas, so we diminish our chances of saving our planet.

Let our voices be heard in support of Charlottetown mayor and council as they struggle to resist the pressure of those who would destroy Victoria Park.
