Shawnigan Lake, B.C. residents celebrated a victory last week when Victoria City Council unanimously passed a motion supporting the community and requesting that the province revoke Cobble Hill Holdings and South Island Aggregate's soil dumping permit.

Currently, the company's permit allows them to dump 100,000 tons of contaminated soil annually, uphill from the town's watershed.
