Source: Archives of the Sackville Rivers Advisory Board (SRAB), an adhoc committee advising the Halifax County Municipality until around 1990-91 at which time it was absorbed into the newly created and independant scientific group, the Soil & Water Conservation Society of Metro Halifax; this happened as a result of the lack of support from the County; the County had refused any logistic support inspite of desperate pleas to Valerie Spencer MCIP, then Manager of the County Planning Department! As a result, the activities of the `SRAB' were assumed by the limnological society, `SWCSMH', as far as pragmatic monitoring was concerned as opposed to `simple advising'!


The press release was by myself, Shalom M. Mandaville; August 15, 1988


Judy Myrden of the Herald wrote a superb article; March 16, 1989

Andy Cameron changed his opinion quickly from the article of March 16, 1989 to the article of March 20, 1989

Subsequently, I was informed by Dr. John Underwood, formerly of the Environment Department, that Andy Cameron was severely reprimanded by his Director, and that was the reason for the contradictory statements of Mr. Cameron!
