Placing trust in former city public works director

Listen to someone who knows! Ed Regts (letter to the editor “Doing the P3 Math” appeared in the News on Oct. 7) was the engineer for the Joint Abbotsford-Mission Water Commission for 20 years. He is intimately familiar with our water system. Read his reasons for opposing the P3 Stave Lake project.

Ed Regts (letter to the editor “Doing the P3 Math” appeared in the News on Oct. 7) was the engineer for the Joint Abbotsford-Mission Water Commission for 20 years. He is intimately familiar with our water system.  Read his reasons for opposing the P3 Stave Lake project.

Why is the Abbotsford council spending  $200,00 to convince voters to approve this project in a referendum?

The rhetoric of the council members, as expressed by their blurbs in the city’s ad, appears to have been scripted by the same pen. Mouthpieces?

Thank you, Patricia Ross, for having the courage to distance yourself from your colleagues.

Mission council doesn’t believe that the two municipalities are running out of water, so why does Abbotsford?

Regts, our city’s director of public works until his retirement, doesn’t think there is a water shortage and nor do I.

I’m no expert, but I know who I can believe.  I had the privilege of working with Ed for over 20 years, and I could always trust his expertise and his judgment.

Ed and the other opponents to this project have it right and the Council has it wrong.  It’s as simple as that.
