Editor: While I am in full support of allowing filming in the Township of Langley, as it does provide income, I do object to not being fully informed as to how it will affect me.
On Monday, Oct. 17, my neighbourhood was buzzed (for approximately opne and one-half hours) by a helicopter that was doing filming. I was informed of this after a call to the police.
While I appreciate that some filming has to be done from the air, it would have been nice to be notified that there would be an invasion of my privacy because of this helicopter.
It’s not enough that we have to deal with firecrackers at this time of the year, but to have a helicopter buzzing around, scaring my dogs and preventing them from enjoying their back yard is not what I call neighbourly.
I had to put them in their crates for the duration of the filming. I would suggest that, in the future, if there are to be helicopters involved in filming, affected neighbourhoods be advised of the imposition.
Then we can make changes in our daily schedules to accommodate the activity and be happily supportive of an industry which provides so much income to the Township, instead of putting a bad taste in our mouths for lack of information.
