Sewage editorial missed the mark

Re: Sewage forum comes too late (Our View, June 1).

It’s totally a defeatist attitude for Black Press to say that an unnecessary, billion-dollar sludge-producing sewage plant should go ahead merely because ignorant Capital Regional District politicians have already spent some money on it.

There hasn’t even been a marine environmental impact assessment done yet, and the CRD doesn’t even really know where and how it can deal with all the sewage sludge produced.

The ARESST forum scientists and doctors shone a bright light on the foolishness of spending so much on a sewage plan that will deliver so little – while the real pollution problems are still not addressed.

Shame on Black Press!
