Pro-development types in Port Moody 'are not interested in community building' but in profit, says the letter writer

I totally concur with David Stuart's letter. His comments in regards to "the three amigos" (Port Moody councillors Meghan Lahti, Diana Dilworth and Zoe Royer) bullying council into meeting with the consortium of owners and developers were very relevant.

Those involved in this agenda are not interested in community building but in the possible profit resulting from building a road through Bert Flinn Park to develop the Ioco lands and massively developing Moody Centre.

At the last election, the residents of Port Moody believed they were electing a council that did not support this level of development. We expect evidence of this outlook as well as the opportunity to attend open council meetings, hear and see evidence-based decision making, and planned infrastructure built before development.

We also expect respect for those who offer opinions that differ from those of "the three amigos" and the owners and developers they support.

Lee McGillveray, Port Moody
