...that's one challenge with dragging our heals for so long.

 

You're saying Victoria has a chronic condition? Sometimes I wonder if the city is just malingering.

"heal" as versus "heel".

 

Now I feel like a jerk for making a hilarious joke out of it.

I posited that outcome in my post here a couple of weeks ago.

I'll paraphrase what I said in my previous post once again ... that "noise fence" is a complete and utter joke. Only  fool would think it would accomplish anything.

 

When the "tool to rock-face" location (in its various forms) moves further away from James Bay Anglers, the noise may abate slightly ... maybe.

 

My informed opinion is that noise abatement is a lost cause on this job due to sheer ignorance and gross neglect.

They knew it would be in excess of the permitted noise levels, they didn't care, and they went on to boldly lie about it ... probably bodes heavily as to how this entire project will be managed.

Letter in Focus July/August issue: 
 
Why are we in thrall to Seattle on sewage?

Excerpt:

Why are we in thrall to Seattle over this? Are we that gutless? I refuse to believe the impact of a boycott on tourism is so monumental that we must crawl on our knees as supplicants, grateful for any wee morsels thrown our way.

According to that, we will line up a 4-foot wide pipe, all the way down Niagara almost to Government St., weld it up, then it'll take 4 days to haul it across the harbour.    That's going to interesting for folks in James Bay, especially that live on Niagara.

It would be cheaper to just add that 4-foot wide pipe to the end of the existing Clover Point outfall pipe.

Excerpt:
What amenities could materialize with a $17-million improvement in the Township of Esquimalt? That’s the question the township will ask residents as it looks to decide how to spend amenities package funding it will receive in exchange for allowing construction of the region’s wastewater treatment plant at McLoughlin Point.
...“We want the public to really weigh in before we make any decisions,” said Mayor Barb Desjardins.

yyjsewage, excerpt:

Due to an obstruction the casing hammering did not take place on
Saturday 8th July and, according to a CRD briefing note, has been
postponed until later this week
....Our expert geologists have repeatedly warned of the risks
associated with the tunnelled/drilled route; one of these being the
presence of “glacial erratics“, large boulders transported across the
Strait of Georgia during a previous ice age. An example of a glacial
erratic can be seen at Harling Point near the Chinese Cemetery. If one
of these has been encountered the delay could be significantly longer!

Why not just a cash bonus for all esquimalt residents? By my calculations all residents would get at least 900 bucks. Probably more if we didn't give money to anyone under 18

'Cause $17M spent on a new swimming pool, say, (I know they have a pretty good pool right now - that's just an example) is much better long-term for the community than people blowing it on a bunch of selfish stuff.  The money is being fronted as a payoff to the Community, not individuals..


Say, what's that mountain goat doing up here in the mist?

How about buy everyone a bike and a kayak then.  That's good for health.

The invasion of those spooky erratics could ruin your midnight picnic. Stay away from having one in a cemetery.
