Save Our Waterfront
Save Our Waterfront
Dear Mayor Kennedy Stewart and Council Members,
We, the undersigned residents of Coal Harbour neighbourhood area, have joined and totally oppose the Project at 480 Broughton Street.
With reference to the Notice of Public Hearing planned for June 15th to be convened electronically, we are writing to not only voice our strong opposition to this project but also request you to postpone any Public Hearing to a later date when the Pandemic is over and we can safely participate in a Healthy and Democratic meeting to voice our concerns and objections to this project.
As you are well aware, participating and talking in Online Public Hearings is extremely difficult and limited for many of us because of communication skills through online means. This point was raised in the previous online meeting, but it has been ignored for reasons unknown to us while rushing this matter to another online meeting for heightening the project that we all oppose in its entirety.
Also, you must have learned that the majority of people consulted previously (almost 90%) opposed this project in the last online meeting that was held in March. This strong opposition was followed by several subsequent emails to you, Council Members and the City Staff voicing our concerns and emphatically objecting to this project with some proposed alternatives.
We have realized that such strong opposition to this project expressed throughout the previous online meeting and subsequent communicated emails have all been ignored. The recent Staff Report on this matter has quite noticeably downplayed our oppositions once again for some unknown reasons.
In the light of the above, we request you to postpone any public hearing consultation on this project so that we can voice our views and our position NOT TO APPROVE THIS PROJECT.
Looking forward to your favorable response on this matter, we remain.
