Dear Mayor Vagramov and Councillors of Port Moody,
I love BC and will always consider it home. That's why I was saddened to learn that the beautiful Bert Flinn Park—a safe haven for wildlife—is at risk. I'm writing to urge you to scrap plans for building any future road through the park.
Please consider the bears, coyotes, deer, frogs, birds, and other animals who call the park home. People in BC and around the world have become increasingly concerned about human expansion and deforestation, which kill and displace wild animals. The issue of Bert Flinn Park perfectly illustrates the global struggle between unsustainable development and the ethical imperative to protect nature and its many inhabitants.
I thank those of you who have already supported preserving the park. For those who have not yet done so, I urge you to reconsider your position and become leaders in animal and environmental protection. My friends at PETA and I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your time and consideration.
