Columnist David Bly overlooked one other important ranking for Victoria while squinting into the mirror, that being first in the category of “poop capital.”
As the only capital city in Canada that drops untreated sewage into the surrounding sea, Victoria should be nothing but proud of that continuing achievement. Even Iqaluit processes its sewage.
It is incredible living in small Campbell River (which, by the way, does treat its sewage and not dump it straight into Discovery Strait) to watch the inability of Victoria and Capital Regional District to enter the 20th century.
