As you are aware, the golf club committee - with the participation of the membership - has been actively engaged in trying to block the loss of our golf course and green space. We have petitioned the government, set up booths in shopping centres, posted signs, attended meetings, organized a demonstration in Ottawa, and promoted our cause via the use of radio, television, print, online and social media.
We are now at a point where we feel the need to take legal action to protect our interests, and would like to engage the services of a lawyer to review and recommend possible recourses we may have against Aéroports de Montréal (ADM).
Unfortunately, our club does not have the financial resources to pay for an independent legal opinion; therefore, we - the golf committee – are appealing to each member to contribute $25 towards the anticipated costs of this advice. We need to collect $6,000.
If you have the means to increase your contribution, it would be very much appreciated; and, if $25 is too much, we will welcome what you can afford. Further, any non-member(s) who believes that their lives will be negatively impacted by ADM’s plans are also encouraged to contribute.
Please make your cheque payable to The Dorval Municipal Golf Club. The staff at the golf course will be pleased to receive your contribution (cash or cheque) and will forward them to the golf committee.
We will keep you informed as more information becomes available, and thank you for your support.
