Environmental Destroyers Defend DCR As Usual
Bob La Trémouille reports:
On Tuesday, April 7, there will be a vote in the State Legislature on a proposal by Governor Patrick to take a limited ability for environmental destruction away from the Department of Conservation and Recreation.
The DCR with the governor's very clear support (He does not want to know what is going on.) is destroying all animals visiting or living on the Charles River, insofar as they can get away with it.
The most recent outrage is a particularly nasty aspect to the BU Bridge repairs, reported below.
The DCR is using whatever weapon it has to destroy animal life. A little here, a little there, and eventually they succeed in "creating" a river without animals.
The Governor's proposal is minimal. It should be supported.
The reprehensible Charles River Conservancy and the proudly environmentally destructive Representative Martha Walz have publicly, as usual, opposed protecting the environment with this minor change in powers.
The Cambridge City Manager's friends in the abutting Cambridgeport neighborhood have passed on nonsensical communications from environmental destroyers objecting to the small environmental improvement of taking this power away from the DCR.
If you get a chance, it would be nice to communicate support for the change to the legislature. We have been through this many times. With the unanimously environmentally destructive legislative contingent from Cambridge, these improvements routinely lose.
