We are not going to run out of water if we vote no on the P3 water plan. Only if the rain stops falling in Abbotsford because the Pacific Ocean dries up.
Water rates will keep going up no matter what we do. They just did because of all our water conservation measures resulted in a drop in revenue for city coffers.
If the city is disgracefully spending $200,000 of our money to try and convince us this is the right thing, then they won’t be talking about any other options at a public information meeting. However, paying the private partner 7.59 per cent interest on their $95-million investment in the project is outrageous when borrowing costs are at historic lows.
