This is what happens to make room for an 10,720ft² mansion on No.2 road. Land developers cry that we haven't seen the new framing yet, to just give it a chance.

We have seen enough. The demolition alone ripped down all of these trees, disrupted an ecosystem in the name of polished egos.

Developers have broken our community. It's time to put and end to this. Come to the rally on Monday Feb 26 at Richmond City Hall 6:30.

Today we joined The Affordable Housing Rally with HALT - Housing Action for Local Taxpayers and the BCGEU and many other organizations calling on all levels of government to stop speculation on residences and on farmland.

We are calling on the City of Richmond to limit residential (non-farm use) Home sizes on farmland and for the provincial government to immediately implement the Foreign Buyer’s Tax on farmland to curb speculation on farmland.

Share if you agree immediate action must be taken by all levels of government!

One of our elected officials once said that people were freaking out about a bunch of dirt.

If you check out this map of B.C. you may be shocked to see how little of B.C. is preserved by the ALR (5%) and only 1.1% is suitable for growing a wide range of crops (i.e. fruit and vegetables).

Look for the dark green patches. Look how far most of them are from the Lower Mainland. Look how little we have to preserve.

Yes, this is what we are freaking out about as we allow mansions to be built on Class 1 soils.

Please share. #saveoursoil #voteALR
