Fundamentally, Everblue Massawippi is not involved in the political decision-making process, which is the domain of the municipalities and their citizens. In light of this, Everblue Massawippi took no position in the recent debate regarding the large development project in North Hatley. We are not mandated to intervene in the economic and aesthetic choices of a municipality, riparian or not, to the extent that these choices are not likely to affect Lake Massawippi. If these choices result in changes to the basic standards established in the watershed, however, Everblue Massawippi must take action. When it comes to overflow in wetlands, floodplains or areas where there is evidence of seepage or other form of underground exchange, it behooves us to pay very close attention. The changes laid down in bylaw 13-14 are of this kind.
