This summer, Glacier Resorts has announced plans for construction in both the Jumbo and Farnham Valleys. Every year, they have plans for summer activities or construction, but so far, nothing has happened. This year, their rumoured plans include foundations for day lodges in both valleys, plus water reservoirs and ski lifts.
For more than 20 years, Jumbo has been the subject of articles, documentaries, rallies, books and more. These help to tell the story and keep the fight alive.
The West Kootenay EcoSociety filed an Amended Petition August 5, respecting its legal challenge to the incorporation of the Jumbo Glacier Mountain Resort Municipality (“JGMRM”). The Amended Petition asks the BC Supreme Court to quash the incorporation of the personless municipality, and strike down the patchwork legislative amendments which purport to allow the creation of such an entity.
