I am HUNG in City hall
Keeper of the Grove,
Recognized as one of the fastest growing major cities in Canada, Mississauga has faced the challenge of protecting natural greenspaces and heritage properties during this stage of massive development.
At the end of my street, nestled beside access ramps to the QEW—terrain otherwise dominated by concrete and asphalt —Cawthra Bush presents an unexpected oasis of towering trees, lush undergrowth and wetlands that support an array of wildlife.
Swimming against the stream of development
supportive policies, Don Barber is a community watchdog who speaks for this
irreplaceable natural treasure of Mississauga. In our comfortable
society, Don Barber’s efforts may appear extreme ,
[COMMENTS BY DON B. -
1. - "extreme"? Well if this is not a case of the kettle calling the pot black or maybe she really means other people not her - having been to the same places I have in dealing with local government. True that many Canadians would consider speaking-up on any matter that they did not have a large finical investment in as being "extreme". That speaking truth in the face of power would be called "extreme". That asserting one's right to be meaningfully involved in government decision making is "extreme". To suggest to the police you, as a Canadian citizen have Charter Rights & Freedoms is "extreme", as they in a not so polite fashion violate them. Maybe we should reconsider what "extreme" should really mean in our culture. ]
