Few choices for cattle farmer

Re: Cows home to roost in Gordon Head (News, March 1)

Having lived in and been a part of Saanich for 54 years I have seen a lot of changes in this community.

I have until now supported our Saanich council and think they have made some good decisions for us.

I do not understand why our mayor and council are not allowing the zoning change, I am a full supporter of green space and appreciate how much we have in Saanich.

It appears the Alberg’s choices are very limited and using the property as they are seems a practical choice from their end.

What else can they do at this time? Asking them to reapply again does not seem fair since they have now twice been turned down.

In the interest of Saanich and the area home owners I would think Saanich should determine how this zoning can be upgraded to meet the needs of the area and the owners of the property.
