Nanaimo City Council is going to be feeling the heat tonight when it debates the proposal for a garbage incinerator at Duke Point.
Duke Point, and a site near Port Mellon on the Sunshine Coast, are in the running for Metro Vancouver’s waste to energy project
Councillor Diane Brennan wants Nanaimo to reject the idea – before Metro’s selection process goes any further.
John Lucas is with Seaspan, one of the partners involved in the Duke Point bid, he says they want Council to let the process unfold.
The motion Council’s going to tackle tonight is the same one put forward by George Anderson back in December. At that time the majority of councillors said they wanted to put the debate on hold.
Officials from Metro Vancouver are expected to visit Nanaimo and the Sunshine Coast next month for public sessions on their waste to energy project.
