Are you afraid your little toilet diversion will BE EXPOSED
by oil pipeline work??????????????????
Some kid in New Brunswick - with an interest in cleaning up her local river - managed to trace the sewage
back to SEVERAL DOZEN houses in her little town that had pipes discreetly running straight from toilet to river!!!!!!!!

Here is yet another article illustrating just how careless LIE-berals really are about the environment. With some comments of my own in brackets):
Raw sewage overflowing into Ontario waterways at alarming rate: Watchdog
From Canadian Press.

Ontario’s environmental watchdog says the province is allowing raw sewage to overflow into lakes and rivers at an alarming rate.
(Of course it is the responsibility of MUNICIPALITIES to ensure sewage does not overflow in such fashion! And any attempt by the province to persuade municipal civil service union Hogs that they should clean up THEIR ACT would start a political WW3!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Environmental Commissioner Dianne Saxe is raising concerns about the issue in her annual report, released Tuesday.
(This ongoing govt inaction on sewage over flows is CLEARLY A DELIBERATE ATTEMPT to avoid building more of those COSTLY sewage treatment plants!! The building of such infrastructure would cut deeply into the supply of LIE-beral Gravy!! Therefore it is easier for LIE-berals to blame “global warming” for the sh+t storms than to admit our treatment plants ARE TO SMALL for the growing population!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
The report says that between April 2017 and March this year, raw sewage overflowed into southern Ontario waterways 1,327 times from nearly 60 outdated municipal sewer systems that combine sewage and stormwater.
(There is of course NOTHING unusual about this as it has been going on for DECADES! And it is the result- in part of those “out dated” sewer systems that were DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY to dump sewage in heavy rains! And of course as our towns and cities grow- and ever more pavement is poured- the amount of run off steadily increases!)
(It is not harsher weather that is overflowing sewage systems- it is careless govt that considers that pay raises for civil service union Hogs are more important than clean water! I know of one residential area that has had 3 floods- meaning basements full of raw sewage in 5 years! But the floods CEASED just as soon as local govt built more rainwater retention ponds so storm water is released more slowly!)
Saxe recommends the province require every municipality with combined sewers to take action to eliminate overflows using measures like additional stormwater fees and building additional infrastructure.
(The City of Toronto has been discussing this separation of storm water and sewage for several decades! It would have cost a billion dollars to implement such a split in services 20 years ago when we were vastly LESS sunk in debt! And Silly Hall chose instead to spend that billion on Ataratiri- this was to be the grand new housing development in what is now called “The Portlands”! Yes- a billion dollars in 1980`s dollars to buy out and expropriate businesses and chase away jobs- only to discover The Portland are to polluted to live on!)
(But now real estate in Toronto is so costly that the original BILLION DOLLAR CLEAN UP cost looks low enough for developers to work with! And yet- why has there been so much trouble with the Sidewalk Group that is involved in developing The Portlands?)
(Should we ask if the Ford govt has begun sniffing into those LIE-beral deals and smells a LIE-beral RAT?)
Saxe says the province’s waterways are also being affected by run-off laden with fertilizer and road salt.
Yes- and is it not RIDICULOUS that The Portlands/Ataratiri is being developed at who knows what real cost to the public- when we might do better to RETURN IT to its ancient status as MARSHLAND? WE all know that marshes have a wonderful capacity to clean water! And how much would local Toronto tourists benefit from having a bird sanctuary in the Point Pelee style right down town on the bus lines?)
(Would Toronto prefer birds in a LOW COST wild life sanctuary that will also enure that less sewage and other contaminants end up their beaches on hot summer days? Or would they prefer another Regents Park MONEY PIT- with govt and developers working together to produce mixed housing - some “affordable” and some geared to market- and the city is holding all the usual cost over runs while the developer is apparently doing nicely according to some news reports!)
(Councilors at Silly Hall think my questions about developer profits and city hall cost over runs versus having a low cost and scenic wild life sanctuary are silly! They think huge cost over runs are a good way to conduct business!)
The report also notes that provincial standards on toxic waste poured into waterways haven’t been updated in 25 years.
(No- Toronto Silly Hall WOULD NOT want to update such standards even if you held their feet in the fire! One MAJOR REASON Silly Hall USED TO GIVE for not dredging the lower Don River in order to prevent flooding on nearby Don Valley Parkway was because there was so much heavy metal in the silt that such dredging would stir it up and result in it entering our drinking water- with harmful consequences!)
(But of course the City is now DESPERATE for more gravy and there will no longer BE ANY PROBLEM dredging down there any longer! Toronto Silly Hall desperately wants the new flow of gravy from Ataratiri/The Portlands!)
(And the sewage problem? LIE-berals DO NOT CARE!!!!!!!!)
