Finally, a Pipeline the BC Liberals can support

Scientists pooh-pooh Victoria’s $780M plan to stop piping sewage into the ocean

For nearly 20 years, sewage has been a popular point of contention for Victoria student groups, environmental advocates and community organizations. People Opposed to Outflow Pollution (POOP), was easily the most visible. The organization’s mascot, an anthropomorphized log of human excrement named Mr. Floatie, could often be seen marching in parades or handing out literature in Victoria’s tourist district.

By this point, however, sewage treatment is a legal matter. Since 2006, Victoria has been under a provincial order to improve its treatment program, and the facilities will likely be needed to pass muster on an upcoming set of federal water regulations. Regardless, opponents maintain that the city may still be able to duck the project by applying for a waiver.

One wonders if Terry Lake will be able to figure out BC’s “Fair Share” of this pipeline…
