Colin Stewart leads discussions
on Nov 29, 2003
“A team of professionals from various agencies and organizations including HRM, DNR, CFIA, Parks Canada, Dalhousie University, and Nova Scotia Field Naturalists, had been assembled to assess risk and develop an approach to the remediation phase. The goal of remediation is to mitigate short term risks while protecting the ability to restore the park over the longer term.” – from HRM Council Report, Jan 13, 2004
On Nov 29, 2003, several HFN members participated in a tour of Point Pleasant Park, followed by a discussion of ‘what to do now’ led by Colin Stewart at park maintenance facilities on Point Pleasant Drive.
In the final sentence of his Tribute to Colin, Bob McDonald wrote
Even though severely weakened by his illness, Colin continued to work on what was to be his last major challenge: the remediation and restoration of hurricane Juan-devastated Point Pleasant Park.
