I was honored to be contacted by a local news reporter looking for information about the remaining agricultural land in East Port Coquitlam. Certainly many people in the area feel at some point in the near future a portion of that land will come out of the ALR but of course none of us really know when. Buyers in the area are speculating and prices have soared in certain locations. The Fremont connector is likely to shake things up as the road is punched through. Local hobby farmers say the soil is not ideal but the ALC claims it can be remedied. But at what cost? It's a complicated topic and I'd be happy to chat further with anyone who's interested - you know how to reach me!
