Fraser Valley poised for major growth

The provincial government has forecasts for the future of the Fraser Valley that are woefully out of date.


The provincial government, regardless of party in control, has forecasts for the future of the Fraser Valley that are woefully out of date.

A quick look at the investments by major multinational car manufacturers in dealerships on the Langley  Bypass is just an indication of the belief that the valley is in an massive growth spurt right now.

In my area, there is continual construction of what in Surrey is referred to as “monster” homes. Here, with all our space, the homes, built for the most part by third- and fourth-generation Canadians are not out of place. They are just a portent of the future.

It is time the government gets on board, comes down from the lofty towers in Victoria and gets a good look at what is happening with the population explosion, from Langley to Chilliwack.  We need updated infrastructure.
