Hicks says that not only is it a problem he won’t be heard, but that nominating Isitt is akin to having a fox argue on behalf of the hens. “Director Isitt is a tremendous debater who is extremely passionate and persuasive in forwarding his beliefs. One of his publicly stated views is that the residents of Juan de Fuca should not receive piped water as it might result in urban sprawl,” Hicks says.


Appointing councillor Isitt to this role was no mistake.

Here’s another: https://www.timescol...prawl-1.2367053

Juan de Fuca director Mike Hicks said there is no discernible sprawl in his area. “We’re already restricted to one hectare parcels. That’s 2 1/2 acres,” Hicks said.

“Sometimes I feel that I’m on a totally different planet from some of the Victoria councillors, let alone in the same region.”

The only part of that article I'd disagree with is that Isitt "is a tremendous debater".

I find him almost completely ineffective as a debater, in that he rarely (if ever) actually manages to change anybody's mind through his "debating".

 

His debates consist of repeating his already well known (and well worn) agenda, and as a result he comes across 99% of the time as simply preaching and pandering to his base.

VV doesn't seem to have a place to post information about "water quality." Maybe this is the place?

 

For the record, here's a story about a BC Supreme Court judgment about metals contamination in the Shoal Point condominium complex:

10am idea is that you do not water during high evaporation mid day.


Why do I have to wait till 7 PM later in the day? Depending upon the temperature of the actual day often 4pm is a preferable time.

You know standing in line at the supermarket I realized that water demand in this region probably doesn’t go up much in the morning.

As of May 5th we're sitting at 98.6% for the Sooke reservoir.

As of May 5th, we’re at 93% of our annual rainfall average since September, but keep in mind that the CRD does not include snowfall accumulation in its calculations, for whatever reason, so much (if not most) of February’s precipitation is not being counted towards the annual total or within February’s rainfall data. I think we might have even seen some snow in March.
