I'm getting really frosted about the continuous discussion about what it's going to cost to provide Aldergrove with a nice sports/health/leisure centre.
Aldergrove deserves to have a year-round centre. It is part of the Township of Langley, and is owed some consideration.
Putting things like property sales on the line to justify funding is just so much garbage. The Township found the money to pay for expansions to the new Langley Events Centre (with no public discussion) but they can't find any money to provide services to a community that pays its taxes and the salaries of council members and the mayor (who recently voted themselves a salary increase and expense accounts).
It's also a council that was blind to the needs of this community, allowing Aldergrove Lake (a community and tourist attraction) to die.
I live here and I a pay taxes here, and it just frosts my socks that the people who were elected by the people of the Township to address and look after the concerns of the Township have done and still are turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to the people of Aldergrove.
I could go on about what was supposed to happen in Aldergrove but never happened because council chose not to follow up.
We may not be Fort Langley or Walnut Grove or Murrayville (the old centre of the world for the Township), but we deserve to be heard and looked after.
Quit with the ransom, selling off old forest. They must find the money, as they did for the expansion of the LEC.
