CHCH: Grimsby Seeks Sale of City Biodigester

As the Biodisaster Biodigester was long a “staple” post on GCFRG, it seemed appropriate to do a special post with a recent video piece from CHCH television about old Council’s science fair project.  One paid with the million$ that rightfully belonged to the taxpayer.
