Politicians will pay for sewage debacle

As a Saanich resident, former integrated land-use planner, founding member and former chair of the Saanich Legacy Foundation

As a Saanich resident, former integrated land-use planner, founding member and former chair of the Saanich Legacy Foundation and possessing a university background in physical geography, I am disgusted by the Capital Regional District’s decision to proceed with the billion-dollar sewage boondoggle.

I shall now turn my attention to rallying for the replacement of Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard along with  Saanich councillors Judy Brownoff, Leif Wergeland and Susan Brice at the next civic election.

It pains me to do so as they are all typically thoughtful, rational people but this decision is nothing short of insane, a terrible detriment to the environment and far too costly to sit idly by and accept. I applaud councillor Vic Derman’s efforts to date regarding this issue.
