Clark Takes On Trump

It what many would call saber rattling, yesterday Liberal leader CHRISTY CLARK struck back at Donald Trump's proposed tariff on Canadian lumber shipments to the United States. On a campaign whistle stop yesterday at Surrey's Catalyst Paper's distribution centre in Surrey.

CLARK came out swinging at America's plan to issue a tariff on British Columbia lumber being shipped into the U.S. Market. CLARK has now centered her ire squarely on U.S thermal coal that has run along the tracks in South Surrey and White Rock for years.

“We had an obligation to be good trading partners with our trading partners in the United States,” she told reporters at a Catalyst Paper mill in Surrey. “They are no longer good trading partners with Canada. So that means we’re free to ban filthy thermal coal from B.C. ports, and I hope the federal government will support us in doing that.”

Port communities in Washington, Oregon and California have said no to exporting thermal coal from the Powder River Basin in Montana and Wyoming, citing health risks and financial instability. B.C. is the last outlet for thermal coal in the Pacific Northwest.

British Columbia's ports come under Federal authority but CLARK believes there are options at the Provincial level to stop or impose levies on what she now deems as "filthy thermal coal."

Are B.C. Taxpayers Paying $3.5 Billion for Massey Bridge to Make Room for Coal, LNG Exports?

Beautiful New Park In North Surrey

Godwin Farm Biodiversity Preserve

See specimen trees, bird life and explore the giant trail network of the Godwin Biodiversity Preserve. This is a unique site and as such, the entire park is no dogs, on or off leash. Please be sure you respect this great park and leave your pooch at home. There are alternatives off-leash parks nearby at Freedom off-leash area or at Tynehead Regional Park. The park is now open and check back soon for the grand opening in Spring, 2017.
Location: 9016 164 St
Hours: Dawn until dusk.

In the park you'll find a variety of natural assets including riparian areas protecting E Creek that flows north to the Serpentine River. Be sure to also check out the hundreds of specimen trees including some rare varieties and a registered heritage tree that is 175 feet tall. If you're interested in seeing animals the pond in this park is home to a variety of bird life. Explore the great old field habitat, an old fruit tree garden with apples, blueberries, and figs, and walk along the looping trail network to see all of the above.

History

The park was acquired in 2015 through the Federal Eco-gifting program. The Godwin Family donated this land to the City so that it will be protected in perpetuity as a legacy for the Godwin family. Over the years they planted hundreds of Sequoias, Redwoods, Firs and many other species. There are interpretive signs in the park with more information about the Godwin family and the importance of these lands as a unique natural area. A management plan was created in keeping with the conditions of the eco-gifting and will be managed as a natural park by the City of Surrey.

Within days LAURA had raised over $35,000.00 for our community.

LAURA'S COFFEE CORNER is open today on Pacific Avenue just East of her old location. Tell her how much you care.
