Ask the Voters About Sewage Treatment
Times Colonist – Letters – 29 March. 2010
The Capital Regional District board just doesn’t get it! In a democratic society, a referendum is the most official expression of the will of the people on that issue, and politicians shouldn’t be allowed to forget that in the previous 1992 CRD referendum on sewage treatment, it was turned down.
It is absolutely vital democratically that no further planning for sewage treatment take place unless and until another referendum returns a decision by the people that they have changed their minds and want to pay that billion dollars to construct, and millions annually to operate, an unnecessary, environmentally destructive sewage plant mega-scheme.
