Tofino Tourism Has A New Mascot "Sandy"

Sewer System Update

Tofinonews has learned that contrary to previous reports the Stage 3 Liquid Waste Management Plan is not complete.In fact,there is some data missing that is needed to complete the plan.For some time the meters at the First St, outfall were measuring the temperature of the sewage instead of the volume.The District needs a full year of recent sewage discharge data to complete the Stage 3 LWMP.This means we are a year away from completing the plan and hopefully applying for a grant to help finance a Sewage Treatment Plant
   How nobody noticed this is incomprehensible......we have highly paid staff and highly paid engineers that should be watching this......If a leak had occurred it wouldn't have been noticed until the shit hit the fan ! If there was groundwater infiltrating into the system it would also have gone unnoticed........
   Do the bosses at Public Works not check these meters on a regular basis ?
   Do the bosses at Public Works not have the slightest interest in the amount of  change in sewer discharge since the Esowista connection ?
   Do the engineers not check and analyse the data ? They have been paid hundreds of thousands of dollars
   Does the Ministry of the Environment not read the reports from the District ?
   Does no one know the difference between units of temperature and volume ?
   A year ago the blog spoke about the sad state of our sewer system and nothing has changed......
   There is absolutely no accountability....

Re:         Winnipeg Police Service “Cops for Kids”
               Cycling from Winnipeg, MB, to Tofino, BC
               Sept. 9 through 13, 2013

Starting today, 16 Winnipeg Police Services (WPS) police officers will be cycling continuously (24 hrs per day!) from Winnipeg (MB) to Tofino (BC). The officers will be cycling in teams of 4 bicyclists. Each team will complete 50 kms per shift, and collectively bicycle a whopping 2,579 kms before arriving in Tofino.

The WPS Cops for Kids bicycle ride raises monies for the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada. These funds are used to provide Wishes to children suffering from life threatening illnesses such as cancer, congenital heart defects, Cystic Fibrosis, organ failure and Muscular Dystrophy.

The WPS Cops for Kids team will be arriving in Tofino on Friday, Sept. 13, 2013, at an estimated 5:30 PM. They will end their ride on 1st Street Dock, Tofino, where they will assemble for a team photograph. Tofino RCMP are looking in to the possibility of leading the cyclists in to Tofino and having them officially met at 1st Street Dock. More details will be released as they develop.

The community is invited to attend to 1stStreet dock upon the arrival of the WPS bicyclists to congratulate them for their hard work.

Note: Cpl Waddell, Tofino’s Cops for Cancer 2013 rider, will be absent with a Cops for Cancer tour event at when the WPS cycle in to Tofino. Cpl Waddell appreciates how important Wishes are as part of the critical illness therapy process. In 2008 The Children’s Wish Foundation granted his son his wish to surf in Hawaii.
