Strong support for farm land

We believe that the protection of some of the best farming land in all of Canada is a provincial and even global issue.

Dear Editor:

Re: Out-of-town names on petition (Summerland Review, Feb. 13.)

We believe that the protection of some of the best farming land in all of Canada is not only a local issue, but also a provincial and even global issue, and we have the signatures of over 2,000 people who agree with us. One thousand of them are Summerlanders — many times in excess of the 153 who completed the District of Summerland’s final survey — and 2,000 are British Columbians.

It should also be noted that the District’s Future Summerland survey and multi-critieria evaluation tool were also available to non-Summerlanders.
