Direct Action Needed January 26th

Attend the Public Hearing at Delta Municipal Hall.

Where? 4500 Clarence Taylor Crescent, Delta, BC V4K 3E2

When? Tuesday, January 26 at 7PM

Why? To discuss the rezoning of 8348 River Way and 7480 80 Street from Environmentally Sensitive Area to Industrial to accomodate the South Fraser Perimeter Road.

Show your support for preserving Burns Bog and protecting the endangered Southern red-backed vole found in this area.

Delta Council's failure to uphold bylaws has silently given the Provincial government the impunity to ignore Delta's bylaws, allowing for this rezoning.

Don't let them get away with it.

Your presence shows Council you are watching. Your presence tells Council they cannot hide from public scrutiney. Wear green in solidarity with the Society's campaign.

If you can not attend, write a letter to Delta Council or email mailto:mayor-council@corp.delta.bc.ca opposition to Bylaws 6827 and 6828. State these are publicly owned, environmentally sensitive Burns Bog lands that should be added to the Burns Bog Ecological Conservancy Area - NOT REZONED INDUSTRIAL! Be sure to copy in the Society (communications@burnsbog.org).

Over a hundred people gathered Saturday to discuss the social, environmental and economic impacts of the South Fraser Perimeter Road (SFPR) at a townhall meeting in Delta. People voiced their frustration with the lack of leadership by Delta Council grabbing widespread media attention thanks to all of you for attending and forwarding the message about this important meeting.

Loss of farmland, loss of bogland and alternatives to the road were discussed throughout the course of the afternoon, but it all boiled down to two points: The road is not needed and it can still be stopped.

We need your continued support. Help stop the SFPR by coming to this meeting.

Let's make a difference together.
