Sewage treatment too expensive, too polluting

Re: Capital region must build sewage treatment, Letters, Oct. 25, 2011.

Langford Coun. Denise Blackwell tells us we have to comply with the provincial mandate to treat our sewage, a perfectly useless project of colossal cost.

We don’t. Surely it is better to fight back.  I say we should fight as hard as possible to prevent this total waste of a billion dollars that will create huge environmental damage when we dispose of millions of tons of sewage sludge.

If the sludge is burnt, as she suggests, we will add many tons of carbon dioxide to an overloaded atmosphere.

We presently have one of the finest sewage disposal systems in the world. All the scientists who have examined it tell us that.

When will our Capital Regional District board members, mayors and councillors stand up to the provincial government and fight to have this boondoggle cancelled before it adds many thousands of dollars to the tax bills of citizens of the Capital Region.

We should all be asking our candidates for mayor and council what their stand is on this enormous waste of money.
