John Motherwell, PEng.

John Motherwell, Bob Furber and Alex Murdoch, Special to Times Colonist, September 23, 2010

Capital Regional District board chairman Geoff Young defended the choice of McLoughlin Point as the site of a sewage treatment plant, citing “significant resource recovery, lower cost and reduced impacts on neighbourhoods” plus “social, economic and environmental sustainability.”
