Cowichan is becoming a place to dump garbage

Shawnigan Lake – Re: The recent Colonist headline “Malahat First Nation bring your food scraps” “The CRD has been left with no local place….since the licence of Foundation Organics was cancelled etc., because of odour and litter complaints.”

Saanich already has a deal with the Cobble Hill Fisher Road facility and those odour complaints are rife.

Contaminated soil is being dumped at Shawnigan Lake and environs.

Now, a proposal for food scraps at Mill Bay’s back door.

And, in their wisdom, the voters of Cobble Hill, Shawnigan

Lake and Mill Bay rejected a state of the art facility, run by the regional government, at Cameron-Taggart on the Shawnigan Lake/Cobble Hill border….I don’t quite get it.

The Warm Land – warm from what? Maybe we should transfer all of the material that has gone to Cache Creek over the years and bring that back here?
