Commentary
Coquitlam residents will choose the saving of the Coquitlam River over the saving of jobs. The sentiment throughout this survey is clear although the decision was not an easy one to make. Coquitlam Mayor and City Council recently renewed licenses for businesses which have caused and continue to cause harm to the Coquitlam River. The handling of this issue is an embarrassment and an affront to all right thinking citizens, particularly the Mayor's characterization of 'losses of jobs in the thousands'. This issue should be brought back to council and dealt with properly.
