Community Meeting

Pit Fighters

Deroche gravel pit opponents meet with officials July 25

Submitted by Sylvia Langmann


he gravel pit above Lake Errock is exhausted. Mining companies want to use it as a staging area where they will noisily crush rock and load trucks. The Provincial Government has already permitted two vast areas beyond the exhausted pit for
aggregate extraction.


Now the Ekset company wants another one.


The government has done little to publicize this meeting. They have scheduled this meeting in the middle of the summer on a work night, presumably in hopes of minimizing attendance.

Attend this meeting and say “NO” to more gravel pits in Lake Errock, Wednesday, July 25 @ 7:00 PM at the Best Western Hotel, 32281 Lougheed Highway, Mission BC
