Treatment plant will siphon transit cash

Tourism, business leaders would do well to ease off supporting sewage treatment

Re: Area tourism stakeholders call for better bus service (News, Feb. 15)

If Tourism Victoria and the Chamber of Commerce are truly concerned about our public transportation infrastructure, they should drop their support for sewage treatment being forced upon Capital Region residents.

The vast amount of money saved could fund improved public transit that would benefit both tourists and residents.

Plus, our environmental gain would be exponentially greater than the sewage treatment that scientists and public health professionals continually tell us is simply not required.
