PETER JUSTO ON JUDY BROWNOFF’S SLUDGE PIPELINE: ‘Imagine building a pipeline from McLoughlin Point to Hartland landfill.’

ESQUIMALT AND COMMUNITIES OTHER THAN ESQUIMALT

SHAFTED ON SEWAGE SAYS ESQUIMALT WRITER PETER JUSTO

 

Re: “McLoughlin Point is the obvious choice,” June 29.

What a load of biosolids Councillor Judy Brownoff is trying to feed the citizens of Esquimalt and everyone in the CRD.

Brownoff writes that “McLoughlin Point in Esquimalt became the obvious choice.”

Obvious to everyone perhaps, except the citizens of Esquimalt.

Between April 22, 2009, and today, there were eight workshops, open houses and consultations held regarding the Saanich/North Oak Bay site, plus a direct dialogue session with the waste management committee.

In the same time frame, Esquimalt was granted two events of dubious value.

I suggest Esquimalt was the obvious choice all along and that the $20 million spent on consultants, peer reviews, printed propaganda and open houses everywhere except in Esquimalt were a waste of tax dollars.

Now that the decision has been made, we in Esquimalt will be treated by CRD staff to a presentation of the fait accompli.

Finally, there is the question of biosolids (also known as sludge.)

Imagine building a pipeline from McLoughlin Point to the Hartland landfill.

That is something that should raise concerns in communities other than Esquimalt.
