Reporter Stefan Labbé and The Tri-City News need to be commended for their work and journalism.

We only learned that raw sewage is indeed contaminating North Road, Coquitlam's Oakdale Park and Stoney Creek in Burnaby when The Tri-City News investigated and reported on the problem.

For years, we asked the city of Coquitlam if raw sewage is contaminating Stoney Creek and the surrounding area, and were never given an answer. 

What will the city of Coquitlam do to ensure raw sewage doesn’t continue to pose health risks to the residents of Coquitlam, Metro Vancouver and B.C.?
