We need to hang on to and examine the purpose of the ALR. There is maybe a need to review it and consider changing it to the Environmental Land Reserve instead.
I oppose the removal of the lands in Bradner from the ALR. At one time I lived in South Surrey by the Stokes Pit area. It was changed to industrial zoning even though many people fought to not change it.
Now the government has let it come to light of the negative environmental impact it has to the area. It has affected the water table, causing area wells to run dry.
They have found it was a corridor for wildlife which lived along and migrated the Little Campbell River area.
I am sure there is impact already from the Gloucester area to the water run-off. We don’t need more.
