New government should reconsider sewage plant

Re: Sewage forum comes too late (Our View, June 1)

I disagree with your editorial on the sewage forum. The evidence is strong that the sewage treatment project will not benefit either public health or the marine environment.

Why spend $800 million on a project that is not necessary?

The Saanich News would do its readers a service if it called on the new premier and minister of environment to reconsider the proposed project.

At the very least, there should be a benefit cost analysis done before spending close to a billion dollars.
