Government fails on every level with South Fraser Perimeter Road. ** UPDATED JULY 22nd. – see below.
Fantastic to see this story on CTV last night about the SFPR, one I urge everyone to take a look at. http://www.ctvbc.ctv.ca/servlet/an/local/CTVNews/20110719/bc_road_fraser_river_110719/20110719/?hub=BritishColumbiaHome#.Tib84_61lPQ.email
The government has failed on so many levels here, I don’t even know where to begin. Oh yes, with these two oldies but goodies… ; )
The BC liberals and two transportation ministers, promised to save several heritage homes, and areas of importance. Those promises fell by the wayside to build this road, and the destruction of a historically significant site such as the Cannery is unacceptable, in particular because the government has gone against the recommendations made to them in this leaked report that they kept hidden and confidential – for good reason.
This report as mentioned in the story link above, contains the archeological recommendations and assessments for this area, and clearly the government has simply tossed the report to the side and plowed on- literally.
Take a look, and wonder what other promises have, or will be broken by this new premier and caucus.
