After the Citizens for Jumbo Wild spent the summer months observing the activities of Jumbo Glacier Resort from their roadside checkpoint on the
Farnham Creek road, theyve indefinitely packed it in.
Until the Environmental Assessment Office of B.C. finishes investigating whether the use of an excavator by
Glacier Resorts Ltd. is in violation of its own legally-binding environmental
commitments, the Citizens for Jumbo Wild wont be stationed on site, said K. Linda Kivi with Citizens for Jumbo Wild.
We are continuing to monitor and observe GRLs activities, she said. Were no longer camped on the road, per se, but volunteers continue to keep an eye on the road and any activities that are going on there. We continue to have a presence but not an overnight presence anymore.
The checkpoint will return should the construction resume, she said, adding that the Citizens for Jumbo Wild were satisfied with the result of their efforts over the summer.
The group is thrilled that they were able to keep on eye on activities of the company and have nothing to report
regarding any breaches of Environmental Assessment conditions, said Ms. Kivi.
