LETTERS: Rushing South Campbell Heights vote back to Metro showed lack of respect for due process

Editor:

I joined many others in feeling the shock of Surrey’s motion to send the development proposal on the South Campbell Heights Land Use plan back to the next meeting of the board of Metro Vancouver in February. This proposal was referred back to Surrey to meet requirements. These requirements were not met, showing Surrey’s lack of respect for the board.

There was no meeting between Surrey council and the Semiahmoo First Nations.

This meeting was set for March 14, but in the spirit of Truth and Reconciliation this meeting needed to happen and be taken to heart before any motion of the Metro Vancouver Board. No consultation shows lack of respect for First Nations.

There still needs to be a further environmental assessment. TransLink has not indicated there will be adequate transit. Also, the plan does not meet the proposed 2050 Climate Strategy. A vote for this plan showed a total lack of respect for due process.
