I am writing on behalf of future generations who would like to visit and appreciate Little Campbell Hatchery and its surrounding areas.
I have released salmon fry over a period of 20 years as part of a school program.
My students were so impressed with the environment and ecology of the area that it remains one of the highlights of their school year even today when I meet them.
I think that, as keepers of the environment, it is important that we maintain such facilities for the future. What an absolute travesty it would be if, through our mismanagement, we lost this great facility.
I am totally in support of a truck park for those truckers requiring a place to put their vehicles (A lot of concern, Dec. 9). We need to find an area that is not as environmentally sensitive as this one.
Despite guarantees the developers may be providing, accidents will happen. The hatchery has been operating over 50 years, and it would be catastrophic if a spill or similar event rendered the creek to be unsuitable as a fish habitat.
I have written to the mayor and all members of Surrey council expressing my concerns.
It is important they hear from the voters. If you care, let them know.
