There must be a Plan B for Abbotsford’s water system

Just because there is no plan B on the (water referendum) ballot does not mean that there isn’t a plan B. This is not responsible governing.

Do we have to elect a new slate of councillors to get a plan B?

Plan B is the one that must have been discussed with Mission before Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s corporate supporters hatched the P3 plans that council has bought into, except for Patricia Ross.

It would seem that letter writer Denise Friesen has also swallowed the pill and been educated with $200,000 worth of misinformation on the city website.

The only way to educate yourself is to see what other cities and countries are doing, and they are backing out of these deals. If this goes ahead and Mission doesn’t put up any resistance it means that they may have plans to enter by the back door and just buy into the system when it’s done by the action of inaction.

There is a reason that people are protesting right now in the streets against corporate-owned governments in every major country in the world, and this is not going away.

I urge you all to not swallow the sugar-coated P3 pill.
