Sign Petition

Stop the Walls Above the Falls

739 Signatures Goal: 1,000

To: Niagara Falls (Ontario) City Council; Jim Bradley, Provincial Minister of Municipal Affaires and Housing; John Gerretsen, Provincial Minister of the Environment; Michael Chan, Provincial Minister of Tourism and Culture; Jim Prentice, Federal Minister of the Environment

We, the undersigned, are opposed to the high-rise development approved for the three hectares of green space surrounding Loretto Academy located atop the bluff adjacent to the Horseshoe Falls.  The treed grounds of Loretto frame the falls in nature, a much more fitting backdrop to a natural wonder of the world than an unsightly wall of hotels.  The high-rises will cast shadows on the parkland surrounding the falls and the falls itself and may increase the number of rain-like days at Niagara Falls, as has been demonstrated for recent high-rise development.

We urge the Niagara Falls (Ontario) City Council, the provincial Ministries of Municipal Affairs and Housing, the Environment, and Tourism and Culture, and the federal Ministry of the Environment to use all means to stop the high-rise development approved for the grounds of Loretto Academy.
