This is so important that I wanted to post it again and keep it fresh in the minds of fellow landowners. No one will be able to live here without clean water and the potential for our water source being contaminated by the planned logging in August of this year must be stopped.
That will only happen if everyone who lives in Union Bay and depends on the water from Langley Lake tells all the levels of government involved and the logging company that we will not allow our water source to be negatively impacted by logging.

Subject: Temporary Harvesting Injunction – Langley Lake
Dear Honourable Mr Fraser
My name is _________ I am a resident of Union Bay, and a voter in the riding of Mid Island-Pacific Rim.
I am writing requesting that you take action to protect our drinking water. It is my understanding that our Union Bay Improvement District has requested your assistance as well. I want you to support their request to bring a motion before the legislature’s Environment and Land Use Committee seeking a temporary injunction to prevent Island Timberlands from conducting any industrial activity anywhere within the Langley Lake watershed until such time as a democratic process can be undertaken to permanently protect our water.
As our MLA I expect you to protect the drinking water my family depends on.

Subject: Defend the water supply for Union Bay
Dear Director Jolliffe
My name is _________ I am a resident of Union Bay, and a voter in Area A.
I am writing requesting that you take action to protect our drinking water. It is my understanding that our Union Bay Improvement District has requested the assistance of our MLA to defend our communities water supply from proposed logging in Langley Lake. I want you to support his attempt to bring a motion before the legislature’s Environment and Land Use Committee (ELUC). This motion would seek a temporary injunction preventing Island Timberlands from conducting any industrial activity anywhere in Langley Lake watershed. I would also like you to write to ELUC requesting a temporary injunction. I would also like you to explore every option available to you as Chair of the CVRD to find a permanent solution to the threats facing our drinking water.
As our Area Director I expect you to protect the drinking water my family depends on.
