Dear editor, After a busy couple of weeks traveling I am now back up on the Escarpment enjoying sunny, but cool, weather. However, my attention has now been drawn into a current hot debate by my wife, and neighbours regarding the proposed Keswick Sutherland School, and the impact it will have on our area. Initially I thought the school would attract attention to the area, possibly increasing property values. Then I took one of my regular walks on the Bruce Trail, through Scotsdale Farm. It's amazing what a little fresh air will do! Forget the additional traffic, and/or water concerns. Hey folks, this is the Niagara Escarpment-- a designated World Bioshpere! In addition to that, Stewart and Violet Bennett gave their Scotsdale Farm to the people of Ontario, not to private parties wishing to use their property for personal gains. No amendments, zoning changes etc. should be entertained. The Niagara Escarpment must be protected--period! For the applicant's planner Glenn Wellings to state, "we may have to look at the aggregate possibilities of the property" is at the very least an arrogant scare tactic, which is one more reason to refuse this blatant attack on our very precious biosphere Niagara Escarpment. R. Chadwick, Halton Hills
