    As an aside, most people do not realize that municipal water is treated with chlorine, something our plants do not appreciate. As David Suzuki recently suggested, leaving a jug of tap water at room temperature for at least half an hour allows for this chlorine to evaporate, making the water healthier to drink as well. I would like to see water meters installed "across the board" - yes - even for we multi-family residents. Education is often greatly fostered when full cost accounting is implemented. The public really needs to know how precious fresh potable water is and to be able to value it appropriately. Monthly utility bills would likely greatly help with this. I know I pay attention to my BC Hydro bills and appreciate the conservation/education tips that the company provides as well.

    I know in the UK they have been charging for grocery bags for years and the majority of folks there seem to naturally supply their own. Europe is often a good model for North Americans since resources there are much more costly. I would like to see the $0.25 surcharge (or whatever fee is officially decided), collected for funding an effective City-wide green initiative, such as daylighting our creeks!
