I can only say what an absolutely abysmal view of Fort Langley M. Neilson presents [Animus only bar to better village, March 18 Letters, Langley Advance].
Is this really what he and proponents of denser development think is desirable, that we are a â€œbedroom community for Vancouver with dwellings in the million-dollar mark?â€
That vision belongs to a speculator and developer mind set, not to someone who values the heritage and uniqueness this small village.
It is only because Fort Langley is already a vibrant tourist destination that it draws people who wish to cash in on its uniqueness.
The Township of Langley has a proud heritage, and is not a suburb of Vancouver, nor should we ever let that be forgotten by developers.
If there was a spur needed to keep fighting for respecting OCPâ€™s and Heritage Guidelines in Langley communities, this dismissive appellation is it.
