Langford Lake has too many users to make room for rowing

The city should not get carried away with its powers. Not everything has to come to Langford.

One hopes that the City of Langford is aware that the numerous real stakeholders in this proposal (for example, those who fish, swim, sail, paddle, and live around the lake, and of course those who enjoy its quiet beauty) are shocked by the apparent arrogance of the City of Langford in allowing this process to go this far.

That the City would considered privileging the desires of a private school (moreover, one outside of the district) over those who, in some cases, have been using and enjoying the lake for generations, is nothing short of remarkable.

While Langford has done some good things in bringing events and creating venues, the city should not get carried away with its powers. Not everything has to come to Langford.
