Odours should be expected

Maybe the CRD should not be pointing fingers until it addresses its own problem

I read with disbelief that the CRD has suspended their contract with Foundation Organics because of the smell they claim to be coming from that facility.

Has the CRD not noticed the stench that comes from its very own sewage treatment facility?

Maybe the CRD should not be pointing fingers until it addresses its own problem.

I have lived in Tanner Ridge for the past 15 years and have noticed many smells during that time.

How can they all be blamed on a facility that has only been around for the past little while?

In my opinion, the smells are to be expected, given that we have chosen to live in a rural area surrounded by farms.

If people are going to be angered by smells, shouldn’t they also be complaining of the organic fertilizers used in local farming?

Let’s get rid of all the farms. Let’s also fight to get rid of all the cows, pigs, horses and chickens in Central Saanich because their smell is also offensive.

And let’s not forget the highway traffic with its smelly fumes.

What ever happened to live and let live?

Why not applaud and support those who are cleaning up our garbage and helping to reduce our carbon footprint?

Isn’t that what rural life is all about?
