PV water threat?

Or is this just an attempt at intimidation on the part of the city?

Having just received our latest water/sewer bill (I own property in Parksville), I find that included in the envelope there is an insert from the City of Parksville attempting to support their referendum on the water treatment issue.

Or is this just an attempt at intimidation on the part of the city?

We note all the good things that will happen if we are stupid enough to be taken in by a $5.6 million expenditure that will not produce one more ounce of domestic water and that we may be giving the control of our water to another agency.

On the other hand, we are being threatened with the possibility of higher risks of a water supply issue. Why? We are not getting any more water, so our water supply will not be lower.

We may have to boil our water. Really? We have not had to boil our water in the last 30 years that I have been in this community, why all of a sudden now?

Will someone punish us because we did not get sucked down another Parksville rabbit hole? The list goes on. It would be a good idea if all taxpayers in Parksville read this brochure. It is available at city hall.
