I'm afraid they may be our last resort, and it's disconcerting to see their indifference. Judging by the comments of councillor so far, the east mountain should pass without a hitch. I don't hear any fuss over the costs of servicing the site - a bigger deal was made over the potential remediation costs of the West Harbour, although even the high estimates for remediation were less than the initial estimates for roadwork to service the east mountain. Council seems to view expensive automobile infrastructure to open up new development lands as a necessary investment, but reclamation of existing serviced land as an unacceptable cost. This is insane.

Despite the overwhelming support for the West Harbour both grassroots and offical, we seem to have zero consistent support on council.
