Skeleton Lake Cottagers Organization

Currently representing cottagers and residents of the Township of Muskoka Lakes opposed to a proposed 200,000 tonnes/annum below water table granite pit and quarry adjacent to the oligotrophic (ultra-sensitive) Skeleton Lake. Donnelly Law organized a four-person expert team and responses to technical deficiencies in the application, and deputed to Council, resulting in a 9-0 Council vote to oppose the re-zoning. According to Mr. Gord Miller, ecologist, the quarry “could significantly alter the character and ecology of the lake”. A three-week LPAT hearing is expected in 2019.
