Victoria eyes back-to-basics approach on sewage treatment – TImes Colonist


It appears our neighbors to the north who can’t seem to understand why people are upset about them dumping raw sewage into the Straits, have a new mayor who wants to take the whole thing back to square one and consult the public about sewage treatment. Problem, is the city is likely to lose billions of federal funding to help them, and risk making it even more expensive for Victoria taxpayers. This pathetic state of affairs seems to show that government has been become incapable of protecting the Straits, and perhaps an international lawsuit, based on the Boundary Waters Act of 1905, is in order here. These are shared waters and we have done our bit, along with every other Canadian city on them, to clean up our acts. Enough is enough.
