Letters: Protect our water

Letter writer reminds Capital Regional; District residents of meeting

I am writing this short letter regarding the Capital Regional District’s Notice of Open House found on page 20, Sooke News Mirror, 01/02/2012.

I would like to ask citizens to attend this so important meeting which threatens one of our fresh water supplies, the Kemp Lake Watershed.

In a moment where the Government of Canada is making its priority to be part of the Ceta’s international trade agreement featuring one of our trading products — fresh water, we need to be very vigilant of our precious liquid blue gold.

We need to protect, preserve and improve the natural resources around the watersheds not to create sport and human activities on them, as suggested by the CRD.  Pollution will destroy the groundwater and aquatic systems together with their wildlife.

If you cannot attend this meeting send your comments to the address appearing on the CRD’s ad. The meeting takes place on Wednesday, Feb. 8, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Otter Point Fire Hall, 3727 Otter Point Road.
