First-hand studying the Lands

Richmond councillor Harold Steves on the Garden City Lands

Above, Councillor Harold Steves pauses to listen to some Richmond citizens near the main entrance to the Garden City Lands. He had just finished walking the lands, making notes at intervals to further develop his extensive first-hand knowledge.

In contrast to that approach, the failed applications to exclude the Garden City Lands from BC’s Agricultural Land Reserve showed essentially no-first hand study of the lands other than the drilling of a grid of holes, with an analysis of samples, as a step toward the high-density construction that has fortunately become an unlikely fate.
