Delta Farmland must be protected! Question Period Apr 16/2012  

Posted

Here is a short video clip of Question Period today in the BC Legislature. I challenged the Minister of Agriculture to do whats necessary to protect the irreplaceable farmland in Delta.

Last week we learned that a prominent land developer - who also happens to be a supporter and generous donor to the BC Liberal party - has quietly signed options to buy 600 acres of ALR land near Deltaport.

His goal is to pave it all over as part of a massive port expansion.

We cannot continue sacrificing our most productive farmland. We need a Minister of Agriculture who appreciates the value of farming and is prepared to fight to protect our best farmlands. Today we got more evidence that we have nothing of the sort.
