After a chilly night under the stars, dozens of people are working to make the camp at the site of the proposed South Fraser Perimeter Road permanent.

"There's lots of people, not only people camping here but neighbours wandering through with their kids, and it is a happening fun scene in this beautiful location that's unfortuntaly been clear cut and dug out," said Eric Doherty, an organizer with Stop the Pave.

"One of the things we're planning to do is an easter egg hunt at 2pm tomorrow," said Doherty. "The main thing that we're doing here is setting up a hospitable site so people who are just interested can come down, and find out about the issue, and also find out about us, the diverse group that is here, standing up for a variety of different reasons, opposing this freeway."

Doherty encouraged supporters and anyone curious about the freeway expansion to stop by for a visit.
