January 12, 1972, a regional development plan sponsored by the province and the city of Kapukasing was proposed to include Val Rita and Harty in a wider area whose core would be Kapuskasing. The adoption of this plan would have resulted in long-term suppression of Val Rita and Harty communities and all the decisions imperceptibly moved to Kapuskasing.
When the development plan was presented to the population, 144 citizens of Val Rita and Harty went to the scene to protest against the inclusion of their territories in a plan that would stop the development of their community.
At this point, the two communities of Val Rita and Harty saw that they had to stay together to defeat the common enemy, what had become to the Town of Kapuskasing. Despite the petition and the delegation of Val Rita and Harty, the Town of Kapuskasing accepts the management plan as prepared and submits it to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs for approval.
The Committee of Citizens of Val Rita and Harty asked the Ministry to withdraw from the plan the Williamson Township, part of Owens Township and part of Idington Township as presented by the Town of Kapuskasing.
The request was granted.
