I'd like to congratulate mayor, council and the staff of the District of Sechelt for pursuing new and better financial opportunities for the wastewater treatment facility.
The extra grant, lower interest rate and a longer amortization period are greatly beneficial to the financial well-being of our community. And we still have a state-of-the-art, world-class facility underway.
I see no negatives in voting yes on the upcoming referendum unless one has an irrational opposition to absolutely everything that the mayor and council try to accomplish. In a rare move, all councillors voted yes to the initiative so even the two naysayers couldn't find fault with the proposal.
Regardless, let's all get out and vote yes either at the advance voting polls on March 5 or on voting day, March 8. It's good for Sechelt.
