Going to filthy Victoria?

Victoria, BC dumps its raw sewage with very little treatment into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. 34 million gallons per day.

BC promised in 1993 that its capital Victoria would stop dumping raw sewage in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Later Washington supported the Vancouver 2010 Olympics bid because BC promised - promised - to install the needed equipment.

BC Premier Christy Clark is moving with the speed of a Seattle focus group to find a location for the needed plant. Today in 2014 Victoria is still pumping 34 million gallons of raw effluent daily into the strait, which connects to Puget Sound.

Are you planning to go to Victoria? Charming, English Victoria? Filthy Victoria.
