Metro Vancouver is still trying to find a site to build a garbage incinerator, which soon no one but they will want, as support is dwindling.
But will they do what is difficult for politicians to do, and change their mind?
A city in Scotland did, and paid a default penalty, which Metro wonâ€™t have to because no contract has yet been signed.
The biggest problem for garbage incinerators worldwide is that they are running out of combustible garbage, for which they pay a considerable penalty.
Metroâ€™s committee for this project is called Zero Waste, but the fact is there will be ash residues of close to 20 per cent or more, so it isnâ€™t really zero at all, is it?
Furthermore, ash isnâ€™t really a residue, itâ€™s the same garbage reduced to an unusable toxic mass. Anything that could have been recycled now canâ€™t be, so what really will have been achieved?
If you donâ€™t want it built, tell them!
