Our Mission is to honour Mack Laing’s wishes in a way that respects current realities:
- to ensure that the fragile ecosystems of Mack Laing Nature Park and Brooklyn Creek remain free of the negative effects of vehicular traffic and building construction; and,
- to ensure that Comox taxpayers are not burdened in perpetuity with the costs of maintaining and running another public facility.

There is no dispute that Mack Laing should be honoured. The question facing us today is not whether to preserve and remember our history, but how it should be done.
In June 1983, Mack’s long-time friend and noted environmentalist, Ruth Masters, dedicated the Mack Laing cairn in a special ceremony held in the Park. She said the cairn would “stand as a reminder to future Comox residents and politicians that the Laing property is always to remain in its natural state as a park”.
