Burns Bog Conservation Society

I received the following in my Inbox:

What? Delta Council Meeting (click here for agenda)
Where? Delta Municipal Hall, 4500 Clarence Taylor Crescent, Delta, BC
When? Monday, February 8 at 7PM
Why? Delta wants to redesignate three parcels of land from Environmentally Sensitive Area (ESA) to Industrial and Heavy Industrial to accomodate the South Fraser Perimeter Road (SFPR).

A third reading (of four) will be given to Bylaws 6827 and 6828, removing Environmentally Sensitive Area (ESA) designation from three parcels of Burns Bog land at 8348 River Way and 7480 80th Street, to accomodate the SFPR.

They could pass the bylaws at this meeting.

Please attend to show them you will not sit back and let them destroy our precious bog.

Burns Bog filters our water, keeps our air clean, and provides land to grow the food that nourishes us.It is a sacred place, and one of the very few magificent green spaces we have left to enjoy. Don't let them destroy it.

Your efforts make a difference. At the Public Hearing in January, the Mayor and Councillors were moved to consider the bylaws in greater depth thanks to your questioning. Read the responses given by clicking here.

Stay informed and stay active in protesting Bylaws 6827 and 6828. We can stop this.
