Bowser sewage does not belong in fragile oceans

Re: Residents fight marine outfall (The NEWS, August 8).

I cannot believe the residents and legion members are that short-sighted that they would vote in favour of dumping sewage into our fragile oceans. Area H Director Bill Veenhof has stated that the treatment is totally safe and will provide protection for human health and the environment. But yet, it is not safe enough to discharge to land disposal. What qualifications does he have to judge on sewage treatment?

Perhaps we should all come to the table and pay for the legion’s septic. Maybe they would put common sense ahead of the almighty dollar.

I can’t believe the RDN would even consider dumping sewage into the waters that are already struggling. Let’s hope someone with some sensibility will see how crazy this is.
