RT @Denise Savoie: Victoria paddlers and residents came out in force today to protest mega-yacht marina proposal -

There were something on the order of 200 protesters on land and 100 boats on the water! Very effective protest against corporate (developer) arrogance and disdain for democracy, destruction of a spectacularly beautiful harbour by the installation of a parking lot for the rich and their huge yachts blocking the view enjoyed by residents and tourists alike, the loss of recreational freedom of kayakers and other boaters to use the harbour, the loss of safety engendered by a far too congested harbour, and the environmental pollution of an already stressed waterway, to say nothing of the unconscionable use of fossil fuels to power gigantic toys for ridiculously wealthy overgrown boys! And all subsidized by the Campbell and Harper governments (our money), which are in power partly as a result of political donations from developers!

Those who don't like a mega-marina in our Victoria Harbour should also be concerned about the CRD's plans to plunk a sewage treatment at McLoughlin Point - right at the very mouth of the Harbour!

They also plan to run a sewage pipeline up the harbour to Selkirk Water - where they're planning a sewage sludge energy plant.

So - mega-marina is not a good idea, but logically, you better start to question why we're going to have two big sewage projects right on the harbour too.
