|A lot of us are still reeling from Tuesday’s news that the Land and Property Rights Tribunal (LPRT) ruled in favour of TSMV and ordered our Town Council to approve the developments we rejected as a community last winter.
Is this how democracy works?
Is it right for a provincially appointed board to overturn the decision of an elected municipal government??
We share your despair but here are a couple of things you can do right now to ease those helpless feelings:
1) Send a quick note to Council and encourage them to appeal the LPRT decision;
2) Register your thoughts on another housing development (800 Canmore) that’s proposed for a designated wildlife area and would also require us to move our Urban Growth Boundary. It’s smaller than TSMV, but many of the overarching concerns are the same. Weigh in now, before next week’s public hearing.
Have a great night!
