Sad to see lot cleared

I have enjoyed such an abundance of birds and wildlife while living there that it occurred to me that would be no more.

Editor, The News:

I went home at lunch the other day to find the green belt behind the Gabriola Townhouses on 237th Street and Dewdney Trunk Road being cleared.

I was so sad to see all of those trees being ripped down.  I have enjoyed such an abundance of birds and wildlife while living there that it occurred to me that would be no more.

Seeing first-hand the destruction of habitat for stellar jays, crows, flickers and numerous other species of birds was really upsetting.

I guess that is the price of progress in this town. I dread seeing the desolation that will be left.
