Green assets

The assets in question are the green haven of Riverview for the mentally ill of British Columbia and the green timbers of southern Vancouver Island, both being dispersed to reward developers with the other kind of green: money.

The public isn’t fooled by the eco-type green talk of your government and the deals being done at these sites.

The astonishing thing is that you think we’ll cheer your new green robes, when really, you’ve got nothing of the sort on at all. Nothing. Not that buck-naked is a bad thing to be, just rather brazen when leading a main street parade.

Please reconsider, for your sake, if not for the long-term good of British Columbia and the planet.
