FVRD should slow Kinder Morgan

We don’t want to be pushed around. Slow down, give us time to do this.

I am writing in response to the article, “FVRD approves Kinder Morgan study (Progress, Tuesday, 2 April). The article notes that the FVRD has given permission for Kinder Morgan “to conduct a corridor study in Cheam Lake Wetlands Regional Park.” Does the FVRD have the authority to do this? Have they had any public meetings to see if the residents of the area approve of such a study. Director Dennis Adamanson is now “requesting advice from the board how to inform residents that Kinder Morgan has the authority to enter their land irrespective of the residence permission”. Well I will tell you how:: call a public meeting and explain this to us and get our feedback, after all it’s our park and land.

This whole process is going too fast and by passing the concerns and rights of citizens. We don’t want to be pushed around. Slow down, give us time to do this. In the meantime the FVRD can use some of that time to listen more to the people they claim to be representing. Do you know you could say no to this and thus ensure that no oil pipeline will go through our parkland.
