Many people from outside the Lake Simcoe area are surprised when they learn there is no association encompassing our entire lake... no community or cottagers' or property owners' association.

There are many local organizations around the lake, representing various communities. I can't help but wonder, however, whether an umbrella group for these organizations, offering membership to both individuals and existing neighbourhood community groups, would have the type of political clout that seems to be needed to protect Lake Simcoe. There will soon be 500,000 people living on the Lake Simcoe Watershed. Yet there is no opportunity for this group to speak with one voice. Do you think there should be a Lake Simcoe Community Association?
