The Lamberts, and other opponents of the development, are now willing to add losing 25 acres of proposed protected wetlands to the cost of pursuing their positions. Their positions should not be invalidated, but acknowledged and treated with respect and I believe they have been. The price to validate their views may ultimately include the cost of peoples lives and the loss of wetlands to future generations. Despite intent, those are the consequences. Whether or not the opponents win the day, get an accepted compromise to the development, or get nothing, in my opinion, the consequential price to the community has already been too high.
If the opponents do win, I can imagine standing in the living room of the Chateau de Lac, being awestruck at the fabulous views of the mountains and Nita Lake and sipping fine Australian, red wine. Hmm the colour of the liquid in the wineglass looks a lot like blood. Salute!
