Columns: Pizzuto Shows True Colours – Calls Our Water “A Commodity”
By Vince Dimanno. Council Candidate Henry Braun has had his pencil out and done some figuring on the City of Abbotsford’s water usage. In detail, Mr. Braun illustrates that we don’t need a new water source. While that may still be up for debate, Mr. Pizzuto agreed with him last year. Read what he has to say now…Only 1 year ago, City Manager Frank Pizzuto told the Abbotsford News that the city had more than enough water to meet both its needs and its growth.
That was 2010.
In 2011, he is quoted, along with all other senior staff, saying that water is a crisis for our city…but that’s not what he really thinks.
Just today, in the very same article where Mr. Braun states his case, Mr. Pizzuto replies with this statement:
â€œI believe that water, unlike other commodities, needs to be available 100 per cent of the time for residents and business. Anything less is unacceptable,â€ Pizzuto said.
Mr. Pizzuto…water is not a commodity. It is a human right. It shall not be bought and sold for any other purpose but to sustain life. It should not be the source of anyone’s profit, nor should it be denied to anyone based on the cost of delivery.
