Calling for coalition of rural communities

Several years ago, the communities of Bradner and Mt. Lehman presented shared traffic concerns to council

Several years ago, the communities of Bradner and Mt. Lehman presented shared traffic concerns to council.

They did so under  the Northwest Abbotsford Coalition, ( NAC). The NAC area covered from the Fraser River to Downes Road, and from Highway 11 to the Abbotsford-Langley border.

One voice for these communities was an effective way to communicate.

With the recent application to extract cheap agricultural land from the ALR and rezone it to a much greater value per acre, our lifestyle will be irrevocably altered, and the NAC area will be inundated with industrial trucks on country roads not designed to carry this traffic or volumes.

I believe that the communities within the NAC need to form a coalition which then reaches a consensus, and presents such to council as an undivided, powerful voice. A coalition is both urgent and is needed now.

If you agree, contact your local community leaders, and express your support.
