You don't understand basic math... 'Growth' is possible only if it is nourished properly when needed, otherwise it creates stagnation and death. No more is growth here is needed. There has to be a limit. There has to be 'stability'. Who stands up for Stability in Port Perry? On the one hand, you talk about the dreadful effects of 'development' in former towns all around, while on the other licking your chops over 'development' here yet to come. Once you commit to a bedroom economy, you lose local control. Port Perry will be just like Brooklin or Stouffvile, a hideous car based place of strangers.
The delay over the sewage ponds has been a godsend... that we have wasted by not airing the basic issues. Imagining the next 400 years. Imagining the next 40 years. Imagining how to buy back our own town. Climate change will have tipped the scale in only 15 years, and we can't imagine what trying to live here will be like.
We are still thinking like it is 1980. There is no monitoring equipment in the Township adequate to measuring what we are doing to the environment even now, on land or in the waterways. Parts per million.
Assume we can continue to get away with cheap gasoline and Nuclear electricity from a facility already due for demolition. And you get to spread your word that no one else has a chance to counter. Horse blinders.
Can't see the periphery for fear it distracts the poor old horse. Someone else is controlling the reins. Not us who like the small town feel of it all. Horsebuns and all.
