Letters: Protect the future from council

Dear Editor,

The actions of council have made many citizens aware of what is being taken from us. 

Whereas each of us was working to enhance his or her own areas, now we are all aware of the problems facing everyone. We must not countenance any further devastation of farmland, wildlife areas, rivers or streams. We must protect the families of the future.

Langley is an area where producing food for people and animals must be considered more important than developing more housing. Council appears to have been putting the cart before the horse: bringing in more people while eliminating the land needed to provide for them.

We need a mayor and council who will carefully consider all these issues and who do not act at the whim of developers.

Bays Blackhall, Langley
