Coleman shows there is potential business for Langley farms
Editor: Over the past many years, I have been involved in promoting many events in the Langley area.
Eighty per cent of Langley is in the Agricultural Land Reserve. Agriculture in the Fraser Valley has always been a struggle for many farmers.
Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman is hosting a free appreciation barbecue for his supporters on one of Langley’s local farms.
Coleman is clearly demonstrating how local farmers can improve their situation.
Langley farms are very well located to take advantage of the event hosting market. Langley sits as the hub of over two million people in the Lower Mainland.
Langley farms can nicely provide a venue for public and private assembly use for business, political and family use, both public and private.
This is a win-win for everyone. Today, many people live in small condos and in apartments, and the ability to have a day in the wide open country inviting many friends is a dream come true.
It could be a picnic and barbecue with tents as Rich Coleman is doing, or a sports team, a wedding, a business meeting, a show and shine — the list is endless.
The positive connection between rural folk and city folk could not be more relevant than at this important time.
I am sure that the City and Township will want to get behind this, as it means certain prosperity for the entire community.
Thank you to Rich Coleman for his leadership.
See you at the farm.
