Central Saanich needs to stand up for itself

It is far past time that Central Saanich stands up for itself and its residents and shuts this inappropriate operation down

Recent and on-going activity at Stanhope (Farm) seems to support the accusation that they are continuing to use the site as a full-on trucking depot.

Transport trailers now regularly overnight on the property and Teravita (the cruise ship contract) and Finish Line tractor units come and go picking up and dropping off the units. We witness trucks leaving the property as early as 5:18 a.m. and they are back with waste by 10:18 a.m.

Recently we saw no less than 12 deliveries of food and wood waste. This is not being used for any agricultural processes that we can discern. This is strictly and simply a commercial waste processing facility operating on ALC land in Central Saanich with a dedicated trucking depot to support it. They are generating absolutely no revenue for Central Saanich (only farm taxes) and are causing great consternation for residents. We are fully prepared to sign affidavits to support the trucking traffic we witness and have fairly detailed records going back to early 2012.

It is far past time that Central Saanich stands up for itself and its residents and shuts this inappropriate operation down.
