A group of protestors are taking their fight and their tractors all the way to Premier Christy Clark’s constituency office today.
A “convoy” led by Richmond farmers Ray Galawan and Bob Featherstone were already en route Wednesday morning Clark's Point Grey base to issue a demand for the province to take action against demolition waste being dumped on farms.
Galawan and Featherstone have led a 24-hour protest outside a farm on Finn Road since the middle of January, where building materials are being recycled into a new road leading to a new tree nursery.
The protest, which started as a blockade, led to two $25,000 lawsuits being served on the farmers from the business owner trying to build the road.
Today’s convoy is not the first from the farming pair; they trundled down to city hall in Richmond last month and managed to convince council to change the bylaw surrounding soil removal and fill permits on Agricultural Land Reserve sites.
