Letters: Fort Langley protest bridge to better future

Dear Editor,

We wish to thank the community of Fort Langley for supporting the “This Is Our Home” rally on April 11. 

As Earth Day reminds us, environmental concerns cross all political, cultural, and demographic boundaries; we are united in our need for healthy environmental systems. 

The hundreds of people of all ages and backgrounds who participated in the march in Fort Langley demonstrated the type of unity we need if we are to stop bitumen pipelines, act on climate, and develop more sustainable communities. 

Our thanks go to the businesses and groups that supported the event, including the Kwantlen Nation, Seyem’ Qwantlen Business Group, PIPE UP Network, Kwantlen Student Association, Kwantlen Public Interest Research Group, Langley RCMP, Fort Langley Community Improvement Society, lelem’ Arts and Cultural Café, Otter Co-op, East Van Graphics, Solidarity Notes Choir, and Veggie Bob’s Growcery Café.

There are many more bridges to cross together as a community before we will see a sustainable future for all of us. We hope that the bridge we crossed on April 11 will be the first of many.

Andhra Azevedo on behalf of the “This Is Our Home” Rally Committee, Fort Langley
