Garden City reputation at risk

Tell me friend, when did the Capital Regional District abandon reason for madness?

Tell me friend, when did the Capital Regional District abandon reason for madness?

Thumbing its nose to scientific, economic and social expertise and its own recommendations, the CRD will try and place a bio-solids plant firmly in an 1890 heritage middle-class neighbourhood.

Liquid sewage processing is one thing but biosolids processing is a high-risk proposition when shoe-horned into a high-density residential area alongside schools, parks, grocery stores, etc. What?! There’s no buffer zone?

Safety aside, morally you don’t put a pitbull into a playground full of children because it is safer for you. It’s just not compatible. Remember which way the wind blows in Victoria.

Come on people, it’s time to wake up and rein in this CRD gone rogue. Victoria’s garden city reputation is at stake.
