The CRD Board will meet this Wednesday (September 14, 2016) to decide on the future of sewage treatment. While we have gone many years without a plan for sewage treatment, the CRD must have a plan in place by September 30th, 2016 to keep $500 million of funding from the Provincial and Federal governments.
CUPE National President Mark Hancock will be attending this meeting to urge the Board to implement a fully public solution. I encourage you to attend the meeting and show your support for public services.
Further details about the meeting are below.
