â€œThis is an important issue for New Westminster, particularly for neighbourhoods like Westminster Quay and Queensborough. Iâ€™m glad that representatives from all three levels of government are coming together to hold this important consultation,â€� said Julian.
â€œPeople in the community have concerns about the proposed coal facility,â€� said Donnelly. â€œI believe itâ€™s important to provide a forum where these concerns can be properly addressed.â€�
â€œThe lack of public consultation to date has been very disappointing,â€� added Darcy. â€œPeople of New Westminster have serious questions about this project that must be addressed.â€�
â€œClearly this issue concerns many local residents and itâ€™s one weâ€™ve been working on for some time,â€� said New Westminster Mayor Wayne Wright. â€œBy partnering with New Westminsterâ€™s MLA-elect and MPs to host this Town Hall meeting, we are providing citizens an opportunity to voice their concerns.â€�
