A huge THANK YOU to Councillor Kim Richter and Councillor Petrina Arnason for their motions to support the cause. A big thank you to all the other Councillors for approving Councillor Richter’s Motion!
Councillor Kim Richter made a Motion to refer all of the requests made by our delegation to staff for their assistance in getting this information.
We asked Council to:
• Request a Community Informational Meeting from Metro Vancouver for Langley which would include Township Council, Township staff, representatives from Fraser Health and residents regarding the permits Weir and Ebco are seeking for Air Emissions
• Ask Metro Vancouver for better explanations on the effects of the various compounds that will be released should these permits be granted not only on air quality, but also soil and water qualities
• Ask Metro Vancouver for explanation on what the health effects are from the cumulative changes to air quality, water quality and soil quality from these two emissions permits and other potential permits that could be given in the future in the Campbell Heights Business Park along with the increasing density in Brookswood-Fernridge
• Have Township staff tell Metro Vancouver what the sensitive receptors in Langley are and have Metro Vancouver identify the hazards these receptors face
This motion was passed unanimously!
Councillor Petrina Arnason made a Notice of Motion that Council direct staff to correspond with the Fraser Health local drinking water officer with respect to concerns regarding the potential negative impact on the potable water supply further to the location of the proposed Ebco and Weir development applications in South Surrey in and around the vulnerable and unconfined Brookswood aquifer.
