Little Campbell River Watershed Society started this petition to Surrey City Council

                              SAVE IMPORTANT WILDLIFE HABITAT

The City of Surrey is trying to fast track the rezoning of 600 acres in South Surrey from 'rural' to 'employment' (read: industrial). These lands include the Little Campbell/Tatalu River (home to five species of salmon) and surrounding sensitive habitat that supports a myriad of highly threatened species and special wildlife. The Little Campbell flows through Semiamhoo First Nations lands and into Semiamhoo/Boundary Bay, an internationally designated Important Bird Area.

It is CRITICAL that we let Mayor Doug Mccallum and Surrey City Council know that we care about the conservation and health of the Little Campbell River, Semiahmoo Bay, and Surrey's Hazelmere area.

Please sign this petition to show that you DO NOT SUPPORT:

1. The change in land designation away from Rural

2. The extension of Metro Vancouver's Urban Containment Boundary south of 20th Ave (which the whole concept depends upon)

3. The erosion of protection of important conservation areas and forests 

4. The rationale that there is 'urgent' need for employment lands that are commercial/industrial (Campbell Heights to the north is 2000 acres of such designation, and large enough. Furthermore, there are other areas in Surrey that aren't on a Class A river and are not as environmentally important). There are also multiple employment options available within the existing rural Ag A-1 zoning (agriculture, education, conservation, therapeutic, just to name a few).
