Big-dollar projects don’t impress reader

Sewage treatment project latest example of spending irresponsibility

I hope local tourism officials take full advantage of the opportunity provided by the Great Sewage Treatment Boondoggle. I suggest setting up a giant toilet along the Pat Bay Highway, with a large mechanical hand constantly flushing hundred-dollar bills down it.

There should also be a big sign reading, “Welcome to Victoria: the Boondoggle Capital of Canada. In addition to our Great Sewage Treatment Boondoggle, be sure to check out our Colossal Johnson Street Bridge Boondoggle and our plans for the Humongous Light Rapid Transit Boondoggle.”
