Letter: An open letter to Century Group’s Sean Hodgins
Sir, I recently read an article stating that not only is it important that we save all the farmland that we have in order to feed future generations, but that we encourage young people to become farmers.
The article stated that farming is not what it used to be, but has become a profitable occupation, using new methods and machinery.
I would like to suggest that you consider developing an agricultural college on the Spetifore land.
You say that the land will need upgrading to make it viable farmland--what better way to teach agricultural students than to have them bring the land up to snuff.
I am sure there are plenty of farmers around who would enjoy giving the odd lecture to pass on their life experiences.
What better way to honour your father than by opening the George Hodgins Agricultural Academy, right here in the town he helped build: Tsawwassen.
