Brochure criticism had some teeth
Re: ALR info was correct: Abbeyfield (Letters, Jan. 6)
I believe Lorrene Soellner’s point in quoting the land title dates in Information letter misrepresented ALR (Letters, Dec. 28) is that properties such as Sandown race track, Ardmore and Glen Meadows golf courses, schools, etc., were developed before the ALR came into existence in the 1970s, therefore they were grandfathered in and did not have to go through development applications. Such properties are now included in the ALR because of their future agricultural potential.
Most North Saanich residents have always been protective of lands in the ALR. In fact, I remember when Rebecca Vermeer was on council, she vehemently opposed development in the ALR at Eagle Ridge Estates.
