Sugarloaf Island is a small island located in lower Lake Joseph. Over the winter of 2021, a large property on the island was clear cut and blasted in contravention of the Township's Site Alteration By-law. The MLA is actively advocating for the Township to require the site to be remediated and the Township's bylaws and site plan agreements strengthened, and encourages anyone aligned with our views to sign the petition below.
