No truth behind sewage treatment plant

The Capital Regional District knows the truth about wastewater.

The Capital Regional District knows the truth about wastewater.

Their engineers know the truth. The wastewater management committee knows the truth – but they hope that you don’t know the truth and they’re banking on it.

They are hiding behind a smoke screen of flawed federal legislation and public perception.

They will soon begin to pick the pockets of local taxpayers to the tune of a billion dollars – a billion dollars that could be used to improve our transportation system or address other matters of greater urgency.

Instead, they plan to squander it on an unstudied and unnecessary mega-project that will disrupt the lives of thousands of people and cripple the local tax base.

The CRD has no right to build a sewage bio-solids facility in the backyards of Esquimalt residents.

In fact, they have no right to build it anywhere until they can demonstrate that spending a billion dollars on sewage treatment will be any better for the environment than what we are doing now.
