We encourage you to attend this event held at the City Chambers on Wednesday, April 26th, the day after the All Candidates Meeting at Whonnock Lake Centre. From our perspective, we are most concerned about the protection and enhancement of groundwater, for example. We have been told on numerous occasions that groundwater issues are under the Provincial domain. Thank you and hope there will be an excellent turnout! Sincerely, Betty von Hardenberg
