Petition to the Government of Canada

  Whereas:

  

    The Canadian Pacific (CP) proposed to build a multi-modal, multi-commodity transload and logistics facility on strategic land holdings adjacent to its existing intermodal rail facility in Pitt Meadows, B.C.;

    This proposal would be totally out of character with the city’s natural beauty;

    The risk of both air and noise pollution, along with a decrease in property values will negatively impact the local economy, the health, the welfare and overall quality of life of the residents; and

    This proposal will also cause a drastic increase in our environmental footprint by endangering the health and natural habitats of our local wild life and affect farmland and the Katzie Slough.

  

  

    We, the undersigned, Residents of Pitt Meadows, call upon the Government of Canada to consider the grave impact this proposal would have on this community and oppose the CP proposal.
