Save our Water – Stop the Pit Petition

Hello Everyone,

Your help is required to save our pristine drinking water which is at still at risk due to aggregate extractions by the pits.   There are a few ways that you can help out to stop this initiative.

  • Continue to support FoTTSA by donating or purchasing a sign for your property   FoTTSA is playing an integral part of staying on top of key issues within Tiny.   The money raised is being used to pay for studies to prove through scientific research that we are drinking the “purest water in the WORLD “
  • Sign a petition that is posted within the Canadian Government, House of Commons website. (see below)    A group called, “Friends of the Waverly Uplands”,  is behind the initiative which are dire directly impacted since they are located nearby the aggregate pits.  This now has the attention of the nation.  Join the cross Canada campaign to save this water for future generations.  See below for more information on where to go to sign up.

Thank you in advance for having your say. Your support is greatly appreciated!

Phragmites

Volunteers Needed for Phrag Free Tiny Marsh

The Tiny Marsh needs your help! The invasive Common Reed is establishing itself within this provincially significant wetland and there is a program being implemented to stop its spread. The Marl Lake-Tiny Marsh-Matchedash Bay Conservation Association (M-T-M) is creating a task force of volunteers to assist with this control program.

Gypsy Moths

Dear neighbours,

Covid should not let us forget that another pest is lurking in our gardens and trees.

Last year the Gypsy Moths not only prevented us from enjoying spring/ summer on our outdoor patios, but also damaged or destroyed our shrubs and trees.

In spite of deputations asking Tiny Township Council to take township wide action, Council decided to shift the responsibility for handling this pest to individual property owners.

An option for us would be follow FoTTSA’ suggestion of aerial spraying of BTK.

Please note that the registration for 2021 Gypsy Moths spraying deadline is March 1st 2021.

Please consider aerial spraying of BTK.  It i s safe and will not damage other animals, insects, vegetation or ourselves. 

We urge you to talk to your neighbours.

On this site you will find pertinent information regarding:
