At the end of the day Helps will claim that she never supported the sewage treatment plant, Bird will claim that the board was only acting on information provided to them by the CRD, Blackwell will say that she was afraid that if she spoke up then she would be put in jail, and the public servants involved in the project will all be sitting at home with 6 figures 'consulting' agreements from the various proponents.

Excerpt from today's TC story on yesterday's March for Science event:

Speakers at the Victoria event included...oceanographer Jay Cullen...

- On Earth Day, hundreds rally in Victoria’s March for Science: 
Just to recall several examples of Cullen's concern about CRD sewage plan include:
- Cullen was among several marine scientists who published letter in academic journal concludidng that impact of Victoria's long screened effluent outfall discharge on Strait of Juan de Fuca is very low risk: http://www.excellent...ment Wasted.pdf
- Another more-recent published letter again co-signed by Cullen and several BC marine scientists reiterate that impact of Victoria sewage is very low. Scroll down to "Scientists on sewage treatment": http://focusonline.ca/?q=node/651

Its money we don't need to spend to treat sewage sludge.
"Some of them have said you don't even need to pay for it. There's enough money to be achieved through their processes with all of our waste stream that they would design it, build it, finance it, own it and operate it."

TC editorial today, excerpt:
Metchosin Mayor John Ranns is warning that the Capital Regional District’s plan to spend $189 million to treat sewage sludge could be a waste of money because it might not have to treat sludge after all.
...The obvious answer is not to build the plant unless it’s necessary, but, unsurprisingly, it’s not simple.
