Re: "Outside activists in fore at SFPR protest camp," May 4

To the editor;

It is curious that in your report on the camp against the South Fraser Perimeter Road you chose to focus so heavily on personalities and the supposed identities of a few "activists" rather than the serious issues that brought so many people from diverse backgrounds together to oppose the road development. Indeed there are many social and environmental harms resulting from the freeway development.

Re: “Road opponents camp out,” The Leader, April 27.

The camp and occupation against the South Fraser Perimeter Road and Gateway Project are much needed and welcome initiatives.

In addition to the many social and environmental harms resulting from the freeway development identified in your article we might add another, less obvious, impact.
