Christy Clark, do you realize that someone in your government (caucus) given the power to make this decision, has okayed putting contaminated soil into a watershed? I expect our elected government to be better stewards of our business.
Though it’s hard to comprehend, I guess anyone can ask to deposit contaminated soil into a watershed. However, I do expect the only obvious answer to be “no” from our environment minister.
If your child wants to play in traffic, the answer is “no” of course, it’s that simple.
If we must move contaminated soil from one spot to another, is a watershed the only place we have to put it?
It’s shocking and outrageous that this situation would ever even arise, whether you live in Shawnigan or not, this is our water.
The people of Shawnigan should never have had to protect a water supply and should be reimbursed the money they had to raise. You probably can’t make up for their distress! Aren’t we supposed to be trying to clean up our act?
Bottom line: You don’t put toxic material into a watershed. Perhaps these technical experts and Ms. Polack should come and live in Shawnigan to prove their conviction there’s no chance of an “oops” down the line.
