Dear Lake Louisa and Wentworth Residents,
The LLPOA recently received a document that is circulating in our community. It was created by Wentworth Integrated Tourism Resorts Inc.(WITRI), for their commercial purposes.
We are sharing only one page of this document. This page is of crucial interest and importance to the residents of Wentworth as it involves the mayor of Wentworth, officials from both Wentworth and the MRC d’Argenteuil, and the developer. The LLPOA is not releasing any commercial aspects detailed in this document.
In the photo, Mayor Jason Morrison is seen sitting next to the developer, Mr. Oliver Tham, and other individuals. On the conference table are several copies of the same working document (which appear to show Lake Louisa and other bodies of water in the WITRI land).
The LLPOA has reliably confirmed that this photo was taken BEFORE early August, 2018 (probably at some time in late spring or early summer 2018) and therefore, BEFORE September 4th, 2018 which is the date when Wentworth Council passed into law an unprecedented assembly of new zoning by-laws which now allow for the extensive commercialization of our municipality. With this photo, the residents of Wentworth can verify that Mayor Jason Morrison was acquainted with the developer, Mr. Oliver Tham, before these by-laws were passed.
Finally, Wentworth residents want to know why the Council, with financial help from the MRC, has committed $32,500 of our tax dollars to hire a public-relations/lobbying firm that is clearly not working on our behalf. Residents ask: Why does Wentworth need an expensive lobbying firm when it should be very clear by now to the entire Council that most Lake Louisa and Wentworth residents do not want a large scale development built in the fragile water-shed of their lake? Why is Council still not listening to its residents?
We have alerted the Minister of the Environment, and the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, about this situation in Wentworth.
If you would like learn more and get answers, please attend the upcoming Wentworth Monthly Council meeting at 7PM, Monday September 9th, at the Wentworth Community Centre (86 Chemin Louisa, Wentworth).
The topics which will be discussed are of vital importance to all Wentworth residents. Please tell your neighbours and friends of this important meeting. Please support the LLPOA!
Respectfully, The LLPOA team
