Shootout at the Fraser River Presentation corral

Editor: It was a shoot (shout) out at the Fraser River Presentation Corral.

The wild west returned at high midnight on Wednesday, March 12. Only Gary Cooper was missing.

When, at the end of well-ordered presentations, the public hearing on the proposed Coulter Berry building rezoning application and heritage alteration plan was nearing the end, the skies opened to unleash a torrent of rhetoric involving the proponent, his coach, three members of council and members of the audience.  All this took place in spite of the valiant efforts of the mayor to restore some semblance of order,  Years of experience in crowd control in the police force were of little avail to the frustrated mayor.

Who needs the Circque de Soleil when we have our Langley public hearings?
