I’m not really sure why Mayor George Peary is asking for public input on “fast tracking” the removal of agricultural land from the ALR to re-zone it industrial, council doesn’t listen anyway.
Do you remember the public opposition against allowing Lafarge to mine gravel on agricultural land? There were some councillors who voted against it, but it still passed.
Then there was the public “inputted” petition against building Mahogany Towers!
It passed too.
When other parts of this continent and the world are losing crops and farmland due to flooding or drought, we should be conserving farmland, but it seems that under the stewardship of Christy Clark’s Liberals there is a push for municipalities to pave our valley paradise and put up a parking lot.
So, no Mayor Peary, I won’t give you my input, because you’re just going to do what you want anyway.
