Greater Victoria Water Watch Coalition meeting


Thursday, May 6, 2010

7:30 to 9:30 pm
James Bay New Horizons
234 Menzies Street

Guest Speaker:
CRD Board Member, Philippe Lucas

Find out what you can do to ensure that CRD sewage treatment is managed & operated on a not-for-profit basis & that sewage treatment is delivered as a PUBLIC SERVICE !

(Coffee, tea, and cookies available.)

Your core committee has been extremely busy on the privatization issue of late and, thanks to general membership support and community concern expressed in 4,081 petition signatures, has brought this issue to the forefront and won significant political gains on procurement of the proposed CRD sewage treatment facility.

We need help. There are many water-related issues that need addressing, and fresh faces on the core committee would be an excellent means of dealing with them. We invite your participation in this meeting, your questions for Councillor Lucas, and your extended involvement in GVWWC programming and pursuits.

Ask Philippe Lucas what he thinks of the plan to continue to spread sewage sludge around our region.

Now called "PenGrow", such sewage sludge "fertilizer" has been banned on organic food crops, but our region still promotes it for farms and gardens around our region.

Our current natural, marine-based sewage treatment system produces NO sewage sludge and produces NO greenhouse gases. However, the unnecessary, billion-dollar sewage mega-scheme will produce lots of sludge and greenhouse gases - while sacrificing community greenspaces like Haro Woods.

Thanks CRD!
