Vancouver Sewage Follow-up

As a follow up to my post yesterday reporting the lawsuit launched against the GVRD and the Province of BC over inadequate sewage treatment at West Vancouver's Lions Gate plant, here is a link to today's story in the Globe and Mail covering the case.

It is worth noting that there is a strong precedent for success in this one. In 1995 Sierra Legal Defence Fund filed a similar lawsuit against the GVRD over inadequate treatment at their Annacis Island plant. That effort pushed the municipal, provincial and federal governments to agree to build secondary sewage within weeks.
