Letters: Not so natural?

Have you noticed that virtually all of the natural green space between Baynes Road and Maple Ridge will soon be gone?

Editor, The News:

Have you noticed that virtually all of the natural green space between Baynes Road and Maple Ridge will soon be gone? All views over green space of Mt. Baker coming south on Harris Road from Hammond Road will be obliterated; all views of the ring of mountains, while driving northward from the Fraser River will no longer be visible.

The natural habitat for huge flocks of migrating geese and the eagles, herons and coyotes often seen is already laid to waste.  Is it too late?  Soon there will be a shadowed corridor of buildings and asphalt to reach the Pitt River greenway, virtually isolating it forever.

Pitt Meadows, the Natural Place?
