Use Ouija board for sewage survey

Other survey methods to date have used dubious strategies

Here is a proposal to help in the decision for the biosolids and sewage treatment facilities.

Mandate the provincial and federal ministers of finance to the sit down with a Ouija board, with which the two politicians could spell out possible sites. Words such as “Albert Head” would quickly and clearly be spelled upon the board. A second turn might spell out another possible location: “Legislative Buildings,” a waterfront location known for its toxic environment and source of pollution.

The wizards of finance could then request the board to reveal the location of the biosolids facility. Qualified observers would see the words “boondoggle” or “nonsense” revealed. The wisdom of the board might then be used to advise the Capital Regional District board to upgrade storm drains, fix the Malahat and build express bus and bike lanes, not spend on unnecessary sewage treatment and biosolids facilities.

The CRD should use the same method for consultation and not a $50,000 advertising campaign with biased open houses to sway public opinion. Finally, the Ouija board could instruct the CRD to follow the expert advice of marine biologists and find ways to reduce future debts passed onto the taxpayer.

By following this procedure, the CRD can blame the Ouija board for decisions, not each other.
