The B.C. government has not yet approved the financing for
the Bear Mountain Interchange.
Please call B.C.'s Inspector of Municipalities (250-356-6575)
and e-mail the following statement:
"I am concerned about the precedent set by Langford Bylaws
1148 and 1156. The process is flawed and appears to violate
the spirit of the Community Charter. If your Ministry approves
these bylaws, I fear the impact in my municipality and wonder
if my elected Councillors will exclude me from the democratic
approval process for major capital projects."

BACKGROUND
Langford's grassroots citizens have spoken. Over 2250 people
signed a door-to-door petition demanding a referendum on
borrowing for the Bear Mountain Interchange. (This represents
over 14% of eligible voters on the 2005 voters' list).
Now, the B.C. Inspector of Municipalities is considering Langford
Bylaws 1148 and 1156, which authorize borrowing $25 million and
create a "local service area" for the Bear Mountain Interchange.
Bear Mountain has a 47% stake in the project, which would allow for
the subdivision of Garry Oak meadows on Skirt Mountain above
Goldstream Park and allow Bear Mountain to double in size. Fearing
local opposition, Langford circumvented the ordinary referendum
and counter-petition process for major capital projects, granting first,
second and third reading to the bylaws (amended slightly since) at
a surprise December 27, 2007 council meeting.
You can help by calling and e-mailing the Inspector of Municipalities.
Thank You!
