Vancouver's False Creek is a popular recreation spot. The city used the area to hold the Concord Pacific Dragon Boat Festival, an event that drew boat teams and visitors from all around the world.
But there was one unspoken rule during the festival. No playful paddle splashing, because you might get cholera, dysentery, norovirus, or hepatitis A, and that’s if you’re lucky.
The water is contaminated with raw human sewage and it has been for decades.
According to the city, recreational boaters dump their sewage holds into the waters, but there's a much bigger, more disgusting reason. The province allows untreated sewage to be pumped into the ocean and since False Creek is a dead end, the ocean currents can’t flush away the effluent discharge into the long suffering waterway.
False Creek contains four times the levels of pollution deemed safe for swimming. It's an E coli petri dish that often smells like sewage. The city, under the leadership of left wing environmentalist Mayor Gregor Robertson, has been promising to clean it up for years, but nothing’s been done.
Alas, the issue of BC using the Pacific as a septic tank was lost in the shuffle by a government focused on blocking the expansion of a pipeline from Alberta that has never leaked into the ocean after nearly 70 years in operation.
But that's because modern environmentalism isn’t about nature or conservation, it’s about foreign funded radicals blocking fossil fuels and Mayor Robertson, ignoring the health hazards of raw sewage in the ocean, did just that.
Watch as I show you who who paid the Mayor to block an Alberta pipeline.
The Trans Mountain pipeline isn’t built, but neither are the sewage pipelines, and that’s what happens when your Mayor works for foreign-funded anti Canadian organizations instead of the people of Vancouver.
