Provisions needed for gravel extraction

The Municipal Corporation is to be applauded for its expressed wish to further develop its available assets.

Dear Editor:

The Municipal Corporation is to be applauded for its expressed wish to further develop its available assets instead of perceiving the power of taxation as a solution to the problems which beset Summerland.

That said, it is to be hoped any new gravel extraction arrangement made will include new and extensive provisions for reclamation of terrain, which some may regard as frontier negotiation.

This reader would simply make the observation that land reclamation has been a statutory requirement for decades in many jurisdictions, especially in the United States, enacted to protect the environment and inhabitants from the pox marked surfaces of improvident resource practises.

Press on!
