What a stunning display of democracy here in Langley! More than 900 people voiced their opposition to the Coulter Berry proposal to work outside heritage guidelines in Fort Langley, more than 600 of which were actual Fort Langley residents.
The same residents, at two marathon nights, the majority of them voicing their opposition personally to mayor and council. who appeared to listen.
Yet, the vote comes, and only one councillor actually seemed to be listening.
Thanks to Councillor David Davis for listening. He will have our vote, come next election.
It seems our collective voice didn't matter to the others. I guess our vote won't either. This should have gone to a referendum of residents of Fort Langley proper, those who have a Fort Langley home address. But then, no one seems to be listening anyway.
Dave and Kim McFadden, Fort Langley
