Prairie Valley property has many large rocks

I would suggest that for those of you who can, get in your car and take a drive out to Deer Ridge.

Dear Editor:

That piece of land [in the Prairie Valley area] used to belong to the Morrow family back in the 1940s and 1950s.

My maiden name is Morrow and as a child I spent many pleasurable hours wandering all over that area.

I would suggest that for those of you who can, get in your car and take a drive out to Deer Ridge.

You go to the top of Morrow Avenue, turn left and drive up and down all the roads in that area.

Please take notice of the rocks and the size of them. Yes, they all came from that mountain.

I urge you to get busy and write to the land commission in Burnaby and ask them to hold off their answer until November, when there is an election.

Also, try and urge Peter Waterman to run for mayor. I think he’d be good because he is a conservationist. I also think he is an honest man and will want to protect the land for agricultural purposes.

Pat (Morrow) Schramm
