The Niagara Heritage Partnership hopes that visitors to this page are generally aware of our position regarding parkway removal.   It is also our position that the Niagara gorge is part of the world's natural treasure, and that, therefore, it does not "belong" to any of us because of where we happen to live more than it belongs to anyone else.

While we do not necessarily endorse all the statements and opinions expressed in these letters, we present them here because we acknowledge there are issues to be discussed and solved.

Happy reading!
