Change of course on sewage still possible

Re: Sewage forum comes too late (Our View, June 1)

Just because the CRD has embarked on a course of action now four years old doesn’t mean the politicians can’t change their minds. The problem is they would have to admit they were and are wrong.

Land-based sewage treatment for the core municipalities is such a misguided, anti-environment policy that it must be stopped. Environmental policy should be evidence-based, and the evidence clearly demonstrates that the current sewage treatment system works brilliantly for the marine environment of the Juan de Fuca Strait. The pro-sewage treatment advocates should stop lying to themselves and the public and end this costly misadventure. The marine vegetation and creatures will thank them, and so will the taxpayers.
