MLA John Les, instead of posturing and postulating, simply needs to change the legislation that Fraser Health is enforcing.
How about changing the responsibility for enforcement to the municipalities? This would allow them to do the math as to whether another full-time policeman or fireman is more likely to save lives and prevent injury than dumping bleach in the water. The worst water borne illness disaster in Canadian history, Walkerton Ont., occurred in a chlorinated system.
Fraser Health is an out-of-control bureaucracy. They can't even get their health care "professionals" to get free flu shots and instead spend tens of thousands of dollars on face masks.
Lack of cost benefit analysis by the health authorities is one of the reasons that health care costs are overwhelming the provincial budget.
The buck stops with the provincial government MLAs. They control the safe water legislation and are supposed to be responsible for health care.
