The image of ‘a green city’ has been used to bring people on the side of the developers. The truth is that we are losing precious green space. The front gardens and backyards of the houses that get torn down are not replaced.
There is no requirement that ample green space surround towers or other multi-story structures. We lose our clean air, as population densifies and the number of cars on our roads increases.
What is driving the ongoing rezoning and densification is primarily profit – the handsome profits that developers, construction corporations, and real estate speculators are making.
