EDPA prompts concerns

Saanich council will discuss Environmental Development Permit Area Monday night

The Environmental Development Permit Area committee is not about protecting the environment or the flora and fauna of Saanich but all about power.

It is one group of citizens taking the rights of another group (the land owners, taxpayers and gardeners).  With well over 200 hectares of parkland in Saanich to be maintained, invasive plants removed and planted with natural species for the herds of roaming deer, the EDPA committee and council members simply want more and more land and power.

This is not democracy. It is your democratic right to join the discussion on Monday, Sept. 28 at Saanich City Hall at 7 p.m. and voice your opinion at the EDPA open house on Oct. 3 at the Cedar Hill Rec Centre from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
