Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We are a grassroots group of concerned citizens calling for PERMANENT closure of Bedford's Acid Rock Disposal Facility on beautiful Bedford Basin. In the early 1990s thirty four acres of public waterway was taken from the community for infilling. There is a strong desire to see the site developed as a park for the community. The Waterfront Development Corporation's current vision for the waterfront has caused considerable concern. Our initiative began back in June 2010 when a father attempted to get answers for his 11 year old son concerned about the the loss of an island & a reef.
With the provincial election closing quickly, the community has been asking our group what the official position is of each of the parties regarding the Bedford Waterfront. Save Bedford's Waterfront Society prepared and sent three questions to the parties. We are pleased to report that we now have all three official party positions regarding the Bedford waterfront.

A note regarding our research into water lots on the Bedford waterfront.
It is also interesting to note that the first two objectives of the Bedford Waterfront Development Act of 1989 was to look at the establishment of a marine park on the Bedford Waterfront!
