What hope is there for an eco island concept?

Readers letterI have just been reading about the government’s decision to scrap Gozo’s eco pilot project for public transport. Now why doesn’t this surprise me? As AD have already stated its okay if the Government to steal their ideas but you would think they would at least have the decency to implement them. As I have said in the past the Eco Gozo thing was something thought up before the last election in order to catch a few votes. Since that time nothing has been done.

We only have to look at the state of Hondoq ir-Rummien to see how much the Government care about Gozo. If that were not enough what about the rusted concrete eyesore at Dwejra. And if more evidence were required we must remember the proposal for the total destruction of Hondoq by the building of a marina complex and the idea of building an airstrip on the island to service the rich boys with their big toys.

Minister for Gozo, Giovanna Debono, against the wishes of the vast majority of Gozitans, Maltese and tourists, supports both of the above ideas. What hope is there for an eco island concept when the minister responsible for the island is so obviously against it?

      Judging by what good it has done for the island (i.e. none), it appears that the Ministry for Gozo is just a total waste of Tax-payers money.
      The various projects that have been left half finished or go against the wishes of the majority of Gozitans is ample proof of this. In fact I often have the impression that they are doing everything in their power to destroy what little is left of the island! It really is a crying shame. Good for you that you highlight such problems.
