Community’s land issues understood

We support the Agricultural Land Commission and its mandate to preserve farmland.

Dear Editor:

We are all Summerlanders aged 30 and under, having either grown up here or moved here in our 20s, and all of us have worked in the local agricultural economy.

We understand the need for growth and development.

We understand our community’s increasing infrastructure costs.

We understand the threat of climate change and the need for food security.

We understand and believe in smart growth principles that allow for growth and development while preserving and enhancing agricultural lands.

We support the Agricultural Land Commission and its mandate to preserve farmland.

Above all, we are in favour of a fact-based, improved dialogue within the community and believe that it is essential for a future that represents all of our shared interests.

Erin Carlson, Anastasia Ivanusic, Anissa McAlpine, Katie Sardinha, Alexander Thistlewood, Bart Fieten, Dru Yates
