Make it easy to be green
Michael Polowin, Ottawa Citizen Special
Too often, the city goes after the easy mark when trying to be green. No
science is done, other than a web search, or as I call it, Google science. By
and large, the city's environmental efforts are pathetic.
Do we see solar collectors on city hall, or wind turbines on city properties?
The light-rail project, proposed by those who seek a green solution, won't go
where it would be most green. Put it on the Transitway, where it would be least
expensive. No. Instead, most want to run the train where we would have to use up
more land and build new stations. The Transitway was built for light rail.
Preserve the land and put it where we already paid to put it.
