Best Use of Taxpayers’ Money

Harbour Solutions Project

The harbour clean-up wins again for best use of taxpayers’ money, but if things go as planned, it won’t be long before it’s off the ballot forever. According to James Campbell, spokesperson for the HRM’s Harbour Solutions Project, the new and improved sanitation network should be up and operational on both sides of the harbour by the summer of 2007. In the meantime, the project continues to build remote filtration facilities that will eventually make a poop-free harbour a reality. “A lot of what people notice is the poor aesthetic quality, and certainly in some places there are parts of the harbour that don’t smell great,” says Campbell. “But that’s going to go away. People will be proud to walk along the waterfront and know that there’s a clean harbour out there looking back at them.”
