Lin Gibson

"Water is the cornerstone to life.  Ward 9 boasts over 50% of the lakes in our branded ‘City of Lakes’. Many residents depend on their lake or river water bodies for their drinking water which is NOT protected by the city.  However these same home owners pay hefty taxes to the City of Greater Sudbury.  As a committed water steward and Chair of the Greater Sudbury Drinking Water Source Protection Authority (mandated by the Ministry of Environment) my knowledge base on this important issue will strengthen the municipal need for better protection and practices to safeguard water intake for home owners dependent on private water sources in Ward 9 and other areas in our watersheds. "
