In my Commentary 43 I said that Genivar had a serious conflict as the contractor doing septic inspections, and I urged Sauble residents to send Genivar a no-trespass notice.
In the resulting dialogue on https://craiggammieblog.com/ I also said that the TSBP inspection protocol was ridiculous and unacceptable, and I indicated that no one will be allowed on my property to test to that protocol.
I also indicated that someone other than Genivar would be welcome to inspect my septic system if they used the very sensible protocol of the Ministry of Municipal affairs and Housing.
Several readers called or e-mailed to remind me that there’s more to the Town Of South Bruce Peninsula than Sauble Beach, and that the bad septic inspection protocol with Genivar at the helm is a disaster not just for Sauble folks, but for all residents in the Town who have a private sewage system.
The readers are absolutely correct. And I needed that reminder. And I deserved the “nudge”.
If any company uses the stupid TSBP septic inspection protocol anywhere in the Town (not just Sauble) they will find “problems” that do not exist, and the Town will order “upgrades” that are not needed, and residents will suffer unnecessarily.
And with Genivar doing the inspections, it will be that much worse.
My apologies for ignoring the residents of Oliphant, Red bay, Hope Bay, Allenford, Adamsville, Colpoy’s Bay, Hepworth, Hope Bay, Howdenvale, Mar, McIvor, Park Head, Purple Valley, Red Bay, Skipness, Tolmie, those parts of Wiarton on private systems, and all places between and around.
I urge all residents of the Ttown to issue a no trespass order to Genivar in Port Elgin.
