Remember the meeting that was held to supposedly discuss options with regards to our water supply? That’s the meeting where the bureaucrats and so called experts showed up not to discuss options, but to put forth their own agenda regarding a solution. To Mr. Elgood, who showed up in good faith to discuss sensible solutions like for example, a deep water intake, only to discover what many of us already know, the object of the meeting was not discussion at all, just a means to force their own agenda. Remember that studies, expensive ones, are going on to supposedly come up with an acceptable solution. Why then, do we find that the regional district is raising the bulk water rates to pay for a water treatment plant that as far as anybody knows is supposed to be in the discussion phase?
This would appear to be just another attempt to force their own solution on an already over-taxed population. We don’t, at this stage, even know for sure that this treatment plant is really necessary. What we do know is that our bureaucrats and elected representatives are once again taking the easy way out of a serious situation by using the medical health officer’s report as a means to justify spending millions on water treatment. These people could write a book on how to bypass the democratic process.
