What was the misinformation?
Editor: In reference to the rambling letter (The Times, Sept. 12) from Misty VanPopta concerning the Coulter Berry issue: She claims the petition was “riddled with misleading information,” but declines to offer details.
What was the misinformation? As for her statement that the petition was “padded with hundreds of names of people who do not live in Fort Langley,” I’m sure that people other than residents of the Fort have an interest in what amounts to a sullying of the appearance of the place known to all as the Birthplace of British Columbia.
Surely that title gives Fort Langley the right, and indeed the responsibility, to maintain its heritage appearance. Many of those “outsider”petitioners I’m sure will be people who visit, and return, precisely because of the quality of the village’s heritage.
I would add this. Shame on the Langley Township council vote that approved this venture in the face of so much well-reasoned local (and outside) opposition.
