On November 20, 2009 a group of concerned citizens organized a bus and boat tour of the South Fraser Perimeter Road to show interested parties the extent and effects of the destruction it will cause. This billion dollar freeway project, part of BC's Gateway Program, is said to provide a new container-truck link between Deltaport and Hwy. 1, ease congestion and create new jobs. What many people don't know, however, is the detrimental effects it will have on Burns Bog, the Fraser River, farmland, heritage homes, and all of their countless residents.
Watch below a video highlighting key points along the tour.
