People living along the Arbutus corridor are still fuming as they try to save long-standing gardens while CP Rail crews clears its lands.
Some of the gardens have been here since the 1940s, and trains ran through with no problem.
Says resident Elsie Sands: “When we first started, we did see train vehicles going along the track, so we know for sure they can run their railway without taking out our garden. And we think it’s more a political issue in the negotiation.”
What she doesn’t understand is why gardeners are not being given until end of the growing season so they can salvage as many plants as possible.
Meanwhile, a window was smashed at a backhoe along the corridor overnight and CP police are looking into it.
