Last chance to have say in revitalizing ALR

Letter to the Editor

This is the final week to have your say in the revitalization of our province’s Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) by sharing your ideas, opinions and passion for British Columbia farms and food through the B.C. government’s consultation online.

Over recent weeks, 1,500 British Columbians from all walks of life, in communities around our province, have offered their thoughts and vision of how we can make it easier and more efficient for the Agricultural Land Commission to fulfil its mandate of preserving farmland and encouraging farming, and I encourage all British Columbians to make sure their voice is heard.

Your input on ALR topics like on-farm processing and sales, residential uses, and creating a defensible and defended land reserve, will help frame recommendations for an ALR that will serve generations.

Please, before 4 p.m. on Monday, April 30, take the time and make the effort to help revitalize the ALR, and support a strong farming community in B.C.

Lana Popham,

Minister of Agriculture
