Not convinced about P3 project

I am very much opposed to the P3 Stave Lake water project.

I am very much opposed to the P3 Stave Lake water project.

I can’t be convinced that the privatization of the water supply is good for the citizens of Abbotsford.

The information provided by the city and apparently endorsed by the majority of council is unbalanced and consequently deceptive.

The intention of this information presumably is to instill fear of a supposed pending water shortage and to show that the P3 project is the only solution. Interestingly, the cost of this deception is borne by the tax payers.

It should be noted that in order for a private corporation to profit from operating a water supply system it would inevitably mean rates would be increased well above costs and/or services would be reduced.
