Water main issue manufactured by Trill Drive residents

This pipeline will carry water — the transport of which is more commonly referred to as lines or mains

Re: story about proposed pipeline close to homes on Trill Drive.

Interesting slant to your front-page story on the trespassing homeowners. Large headline about the pipeline close to homes. Interestingly, this pipeline will carry water — the transport of which is more commonly referred to as lines or mains — but that wouldn’t have given you your dog-whistle headline would it? Fine, but now they want the city taxpayers to pay so they can continue to use land that’s not theirs?

The city, quite rightly, is not interested in digging up the fibre optic “pipeline” on the south side, yet the residents don’t consider that a good reason. Other people’s money and all that.

The only potential real area of concern, the “flooding of 44 homes” is quoted but not expended or commented on, presumably as it is a baseless concern. The NEWS can do better.
