Letter: Bypass would be costly, destructive

Debate dominated by the loud lackeys of the fossil fuel industry

Bypass would be costly, destructive

There are so many ways to solve the Duncan corridor traffic issue.

I won’t list them here because until the love for fossil fuel ceases to be the dominant emotion among conservative politicians, few will listen to alternative ideas in this time-worn debate; a debate dominated by the loud lackeys of the fossil fuel industry.

All or most common sense, forward-looking solutions would cost far less and be much less destructive of the rural landscape than Mr. Bruce’s preferred “bypass”. (Should I say his “reality bypass”?) Once again Mr. Bruce shows his true character as an establishment politician, looking for approval from his right-wing Liberal Party supporters. Does he ever consider his own descendants’ survival into the future?
