I feel as if our community is under siege. We are constantly being informed of further highway, industrial, and community growth in our so called rural setting. We live on an acreage and do not receive water or sewage services (but a heavy tax bill all the same).

I was hoping for a clear plan to get the Edmonton regional planning group to actually work but was told that "Dave was working on it". This also reflects the greater threat that all communities face with unchecked growth crowding at their doorsteps be it industrial or residential.

Our Premier is right, it is time for a change...
