For the past 17 years Doug Porteous has been Manager of Community Development with the Meewasin Valley Authority. Doug was born in Saskatoon and has three degrees from the University of Saskatchewan. As a student he was a canoe camp director on the Churchill, a director at Camp Wakonda and a Saskatchewan smokejumper. He taught in Saskatoon for 30 years, 23 of those as a principal. At other times he writes poetry and plays heritage guitar with the Paddlewheelers.
The Meewasin Valley Authority is dedicated to conserving the South Saskatchewan River Valley as it winds through Saskatoon and ensuring free public enjoyment of the riverbanks now and in the future. Though it was born of controversy, by all measures, Meewasin has been a tremendous success. Yet, today, 37 years into the Moriyama 100 year plan, it is under threat and has had to close its Interpretive Centre. Doug will talk about what is happening and what can be done about it.
