ONTARIO LANDOWNERS ASSOCIATION (OLA) PRESENTS “BOB MACKIE DAY”
Barbecue and Fundraiser
Bob Mackie has fought an uphill battle against government overregulation for close to five years.
The Mackie family, owners of Mackie’s Mountain Archery, are hard working and have created a magnificently groomed world class piece of countryside designed with native trees, described as the prototype for sound planning for the escarpment rural property.
Yet he’s been told the passive recreational sport doesn’t comply with the NEC plan, it’s not a permitted use on the agriculture-zoned land and was ordered to close the range, remove any signs related to the business and restore the property.
Bob Mackie is just one of the countless rural business and property owners that have been stifled by the increased red tape and regulatory burden in Ontario.
Bob gets emotional at the thought of not being able to fulfill his commitments to the community, youth groups, high school students or the clients of the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Centre (BIRC) who use the Mackie facility. Despite a depleted bank account from paying lawyers for legal battles Mackie continues to “fight the GOOD fight” to keep his business open.
Come on out and give BOB your SUPPORT!
Saturday July 24th 2010
starting at 1:00 p.m.
at Mackie’s Mountain Archery
