A lively meeting hosted by opponents of a proposed South Surrey truck-park facility saw a Surrey councillor defend the application process, a former Surrey mayor blast it and allegations of a threatened lawsuit involving school children relating to the proposal.
The meeting, hosted Sunday by the Friends of Hazelmere Campbell Valley and attended by more than 150 people at the Semiahmoo Fish and Game Club, was in response to an application for a 77-acre truck park at 16 Avenue and 194 Street. The application was met with criticism by several environmental groups when Coun. Tom Gill raised the issue last September, tabling a motion to exclude the parcel of land from the Local Area Plan (LAP) for the 600-acre green space in which the lot sits.
