Politicians, residents on same page

In a recent survey that asked if they support the current CRD sewage treatment plan to locate the CRD’s sewage treatment at McLoughlin Point in Esquimalt, all four Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca candidates answered no. None agreed that the current plan should be implemented as it is.

Since this sewage plan depends on getting at least a $250-million federal subsidy (together with another $250 million provincially and $250 million from CRD taxpayers), it is vitally important that Greater Victoria residents critically examine the reasons for this total rejection by federal candidates and demand a better plan from the CRD directors.
