Where is federal funding for indoor pool in Aldergrove?

Editor: It was with great dismay that I saw millions of dollars being given by the Conservative government  to a variety of projects in Langley with no money at all being given toward an indoor pool in Aldergrove.

Why is that?

I am dumbfounded.

After the announcement of the new recreation centre for Aldergrove I talked with the mayor, councilors and Township staff.

I asked if there were any grants available and I was assured if they could possibly get a grant to enclose the proposed pool they would do it.

I understand that it was the Conservative government’s final decision on how much and where the money would go, but there would have been consultation with the Township.

The Langley Township council does not care if the children, teenagers, adults and seniors of Aldergrove have an indoor pool.

They had their chance to give us one without cutting down a single tree but they refused to give Aldergrove the indoor pool that we have been asking for, for over 30 years.
