Garrison Praises CRD Decision, Says Land Needs to be Preserved
Victoria – Randall Garrison, MP for Esquimalt Juan de Fuca, congratulates the CRD for doing the right thing on the Juan de Fuca lands development application. “The support shown at the public hearings to preserve the wilderness trail was rightfully reflected in the CRD’s decision Wednesday to halt the development.” said Garrison.
Following Wednesday’s unanimous vote at the CRD board to turn down the development proposal on the Juan de Fuca Trail, Garrison said he supported the decision.
Garrison plans to meet and work with John Horgan, MLA for Juan de Fuca and Juan de Fuca Area Director, Mike Hicks to find a permanent way to preserve the lands. “The Juan de Fuca Trail and surrounding area need to be protected from future development proposals.” Garrison said.
