Jumbo’s still wild this summer – thank you!

The rugged and beautiful Purcell Mountains.
Summer’s in full swing and the Jumbo Valley is still wild! Thank you for your support over the past few months in keeping the Jumbo Valley in people’s minds, hearts and newspapers. We have sent several thousand postcards to the Compagnie des Alpes in France – we couldn’t have done it without you, so thank you! We know they are having an impact! And there’s more good news! This week, the Ktunaxa Nation announced that it would seek a judicial review of the Jumbo Resort approval. In other words, they are going to court! See their press release here. On the bad news side, Bill 41, an amendment to the Local Government Act, was passed in May, giving the BC government power to designate a Resort Municipality in an area without permanent population or infrastructure and hand-pick a council to represent the new community. Read more here. But today, the positives far outweigh the negatives! There's been no activity in the Jumbo and Farnham Valleys (we're keeping a close watch!). Thank you again for your support – together we will keep the Jumbo Valley Wild Forever! For the wild, Robyn
