Need Parksville water meeting

Re: Trevor Wicks’ presentation to Parksville city council on April 8 about water system alternatives.

Kudos to Wicks for a well researched, detailed and respectful presentation.

Some questions by council were insightful and respectful but some were not. Several council members appeared to badger him and seemed to dismiss his alternative solution.

Wicks, a volunteer with decades of related experience in water systems, put in countless hours designing a 3-D map and video presentation.

Good for Wicks for replying: “I have a Masters in Practicality and a PhD in Common Sense.” Why was Wicks not allowed a rebuttal that had been promised?

Parksville residents need the promised town-hall meeting with common sense alternative systems that are economical, not this $37 million dollar unproven version of fracking our aquifers.
