When we all got our water bill last month, there was a brochure outlining what would happen with a ‘Yes’ vote and a ‘No’ vote in the coming referendum. It states a ‘No’ vote means we would be under a boil water advisory whenever we draw water from the river.
My understanding is city council has been assuring us that if the referendum doesn’t pass, Island Health will tell us to build the water treatment plant anyway.
In the brochure, however, no such assertion is made. Which interpretation is correct? I am sure that the city would want all of us, including strata residents, to be properly informed before we vote.
