Letters: Change part of better future

Dear Editor,

The time has come for Langley citizens to address the future of our Township.

Do we want more cars on the freeway? Do we want more large buildings or condos on the agricultural land? Do we want to keep replacing our heritage buildings and forests with buildings? Do we want expensive SkyTrains instead of light rail? Do we want a pipeline going through our rivers and farmlands? Are developers more important than ordinary people? Should Official Community Plans and Guidelines for Communities be circumvented or ignored?

The future looks bleak unless the people of Langley get out and vote. Get to know the candidates for the upcoming election. It is up to the entire community.

We need decision-makers who care about these issues, and a municipal mayor and councillors who consider the opinions and needs of the whole community – a council that will save Langley from a discouraging future.

Bays and Bob Blackhall, Langley
