Daly knows more than he is saying

North Saanich council doesn’t have to pretend to know all the information on the issue

In response to Steven Heywood’s story about Ted Daly’s vote at the CRD in favor of the treatment option on the table, I think Daly knows a lot more than he is professing about the subject of sewage treatment.

After all he was the mayor of North Saanich during the implementation of the Deep Cove/Pat Bay treatment project which can be characterized by the absence of good science, questionable engineering reports, refusal to share infrastructure with local First Nations, extreme budget overruns and the absence of an adequately informed and supportive public.

North Saanich council doesn’t have to pretend to know all the information on the issue, but Victoria needs the sort of contribution we can make based on our recent experience. Please Mr. Daly don’t plead ignorance for surely you were elected because you do have something to offer – -especially in this case.
