  • Postmedia opinion columns aren't worth the electrons wasted linking to them.

    I'll just state that Alberta Environment & Parks has weighed in & advised there's no wildlife, migratory bird, EPEA or water approvals required, under the same government that wrote the Wildlife Directive cited.

    Giving less of a damn than ever… Can't laugh at the ignorant if you ignore them!

      “While Epcor owns the land adjacent to the water treatment plant, the land is currently zoned as a metropolitan recreation and environmental protection zone. The company had requested the zoning be changed to a "direct development control provision" to permit the development of a utility service.
      Under that provision, the city would retain some control of what the final development would look like, including provisions for landscaping and fencing.”

        Regarding opinions, ours here in c2e are worthless as well. The project is what it is and will be decided by people with zero interest in our opinions and suggestions. They have their echo chamber and we have ours. Here the broad opinions are often uneducated and the narrow opinions, while often educated, seem to lack the multidisciplinary capacity to be broad.
