Vancouver city councillors have flushed down Adriane Carr’s idea of a toilet exchange program.
The Green party councillor wanted people to be able to swap their old toilet for a low-volume one to conserve water.
Carr says she’s disappointed her peers didn’t agree, especially with this summer’s drought conditions prompting severe water restrictions.
“I thought everybody would be on board. Everybody’s concerned about water and particularly after this summer’s drought when I think it really shocked everybody about what it means to have to cut back on their water use.”
Carr was hoping her motion would be included in the 2016 budget, but council opted to take a longer look at other water conservation methods.
