The chair of ARESST says the group’s lobby against land-based sewage treatment has not ended with his failure to be elected mayor of View Royal on Saturday.
The man who was elected Mayor, David Screech, has said the outcome was a signal that the public has decided the debate over the need for sewage treatment is over..;.but Brian Burchill says he “does not interpret it that way”…
“The ARESST board is going to be meeting shortly to look at future actions. This project is so unnecessary; so rife with error that we are going to keep finding a way to get this corrected”
Burchill says the federal government needs to be persuaded that the currents in Juan de Fuca Strait make it a “low-risk” environment for sewage disposal, and there is therefore no need to be rushing into a land based solution.
