This Month's Edition...

Turtle Valley Against Biosolids
By Jo Anne Malpass
From meetings with elected officials and media to petitions and public protests, residents of Turtle Valley have been expressing their opposition to having Class B biosolids from the City of Kamloops sewage treatment plant spread on a local ranch.
A group of around 60 people talked about their concerns at a meeting in Turtle Valley in April, with Connie Seaward spearheading community efforts to halt this project. Along with a letter writing campaign to all levels of government, they have since met with MLA Todd Stone, regional district director Ken Gillis and Village of Chase council. Signs were printed and a protest was held April 27 at Kamloops City Hall.
