Farms not Freeways


A large sign reading "Farms not Freeways" has been erected along highway 17 in Delta, BC. Residents of the area joined forces with the Council of Canadians and GatewaySucks.org to put up the sign.

It is located near the route of the South Fraser Perimeter Road.  It is estimated that over 200 acres (90 hectares) of farmland will be lost by this project.  It is part of the larger Gateway Program which will increase greenhouse gas emissions by over 200,000 tonnes per year.
