We, the undersigned, call on the District of Saanich Mayor, Council and Administration to enforce existing municipal bylaws and reverse the creeping industrialization of Saanich's agricultural heartland – the Blenkinsop Valley – by:
(1) imposing fines against property owners for non-permitted uses of farmland – such as the storage of commercial vehicles; and
(2) enforcing regulations relating to commercial transport vehicles on Blenkinsop Road; and
(3) restricting the removal of soils and other activities that are inconsistent with safeguarding the agricultural productivity of the Blenkinsop Valley in perpetuity.
