New RCMP detachment site: thank you for raising the value of farmland

Duncan – Mayor and council have decided on the beautiful farmland on Ford Road for the new cop shop. One million dollars for five acres equals $200,000 per acre for farmland. Thank you – thank you for raising the value of farmland! According to Mr. Nichols, who used to live there (12 years) the land was excellent for growing. Now those who say they are struggling on their farms can perhaps capitalize on the new, higher value you created. Thank you again. Who needs food?
