Canberra Times Letters to the Editor: APRIL 17 2017

It is difficult to understand why our once Green MLA can't support his party's foundation green principles. Is he going to tell the golden sun moths that his Green/Labor government is about to trash their forever Ginninderry home (since eternity) for $980,000 as an "environmental offset" (whatever this means?) for land in NSW ("LDA reveals cost of farmland purchases", April 8)?

We are quick to deplore deforestation in Borneo to grow palm trees, thus trashing the orangutan's home, but don't seem to care about trashing other animals' homes to grow a housing estate!

Surely no amount of money should be able to purchase God's natural animal habitats – even for the Greens?

P.R.Temple, Macquarie
